Las Vegas: Kenneth Wooten
One year ago, watching 2016 Manteca (Calif.) center Kenneth Wooten, you hoped he would one day turn the corner from prospect to player. This week at the adidas Uprising Summer Championship, the 6-foot-8, 205-pound post is quickly doing exactly that. Wooten is still raw, but he has decent size and long arms, to go with explosive athleticism. He blocks shots, rebounds and finishes around the basket. The improvement in Wooten’s motor has made him a different player. “I got better,” Wooten said. “Everything has changed. I’m stronger and faster now. I needed confidence and I have it now.” Schools are quickly taking notice. Fresno State, Georgia Tech and Kansas State have offered, with California, George Washington, Washington, Texas A&M, and Arizona State showing interest. Wooten is hoping to finish out July strong before worrying about his recruitment. “I’m looking to play and get better,” he said
