When you can play, people will notice that even when you are just a Sophomore in high school.  For Kyler Vanderjagt, he’s not only putting people on notice but colleges are paying attention too.  

Kyler is making his name for being one of the top players in the 2022 class.  This super sophomore is averaging 18 points and 6 rebounds a game and is leading his Northview Wildcats to an 8-3 record. One of his standout performances this season was against Grand Rapids Forest Hills, scoring 20 points, grabbing 11 rebounds and dishing out 8 assists.  

His high school coach, David Chana, talked about his work ethic and drive, “Kyler is one of the hardest working players I’ve coached or seen.  He has a natural ability to lead and it shows on and off the court.  He is turning into one of the premier players in the state and it’s all because of his work ethic.”  

One of the best qualities about Kyler is being an excellent student in the classroom holding a 3.8 GPA.  This translates to having a high basketball IQ and being about to score at all three levels of the game.  His shooting ability matched with his ball-handling skills has increased interest in multiple NCAA Division I & II schools.  

He has already been on unofficial visits to the University of Michigan and Michigan State this season.  Currently he just received an offer from Ferris State University, which is one of the top NCAA Division II programs in the country, ranked at #11th nationally. 

Lookout for Kyler and the Northview Wildcats in action this week at 7:00pm Tuesday February 4th at East Kentwood and 7:00pm Friday February 7th against Lowell at home.
