Liberty’s Denton Koon becomes first member of Princeton’s 2011 class

6’7″ PF Denton Koon spent his summer considering offers from schools such as Bradley, UMKC and Yale but announced this week that he will play at Princeton. The Liberty High School standout has steadily improved his prospects over the last two seasons and during the AAU circuit with KC PumpNRun. Koon was named to the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association all-state team as a junior after averaging 16 points and 8 rebounds, and is considered one of the region’s premiere big men.

Here are some highlights from his 2009-10 season.

Koon is one of several Kansas City area players rumored to be considering the Ivy League as the conference continues to recruit our area more aggressively.
