In a talented 2024 class in the state of Illinois, Kelton McEwen is one of the players that stands out in this group. The 6’0” point guard is having a strong season at Bartlett High School helping them out to a 21-6 record currently while averaging 14 points a game. 

While only a sophomore, McEwen already possesses a high skill level to go along with his basketball IQ. His greatest strength is his shot making ability. He can run the point and is a good decision maker with the ball in his hands but also excels playing off the ball as a spot up shooter. Not only does he have great form on his shot but also has the ability to hit contested jumpers. He is very active off the ball looking for his shot but can also knock down jumpers off the dribble. One aspect of his game McEwen is looking to improve is “my ability to break down defenders.”

While it is still early in his recruitment, some division one programs have started to show some interest in McEwen. 

Bartlett and McEwen have had a successful season to date, but the guard is eyeing higher goals in the upcoming post season. “Definitely want to win regionals and continue to improve as a team each day,” McEwen said. McEwen and Bartlett will get their start towards that goal soon in the state tournament as a seventh seed in the Bartlett Sectional. 

McEwen plays with the Illinois Wolves programs.
