Springfield boys players to watch 2020-21

We’re in for a special 2020-21 high school basketball season thanks to a loaded field of standouts all across the Ozarks. 

Some of the nation’s top recruits, noteworthy Division I talent and some of the best up-and-coming athletes in the state play in the gyms scattered all throughout southwest Missouri. 

The News-Leader is introducing the “Dominant Dozen” for both boys and girls basketball. The Diamond Dozen will serve in place as our preseason and postseason teams as we honor the best players in the area. 

This list will be different by the end of the year as players break out and become among the area’s elite. We will publish watchlists throughout the winter before naming the 2020-21 Diamond Dozen at the end of the season. 

Our preseason Dominant Dozen for boys basketball follows:

Aminu Mohammed, Greenwood

When it’s all said and done, Aminu Mohammed will go down as one of the area’s all-time great basketball players — and he’s earned that distinction already. 

The five-star phenom enters his third and final year in Springfield and he will have the choice between a plethora of college programs over the winter. 

At Greenwood, Mohammed has led the program to a state title in 2019 and its first Blue and Gold Tournament title later in the year. 

The Kickapoo Chiefs celebrate after they beat the Republic Tigers during class 5 sectionals at the O'Reilly Family Event Center on Wednesday, March 6, 2019.

ESPN ranks Mohammed as the No. 11 senior in the country is coming off a junior season in which he averaged 34.8 points and 15.7 boards per game. 

Mohammed has been a special athlete in the Springfield area and time is running out for Ozarks basketball fans to see one of the all-time greats in area gyms. 

Anton Brookshire, Kickapoo

Also up there with the area’s all-time greats will be Kickapoo senior Anton Brookshire.
