    Kennedy Chandler, the 6-foot-1 Class of 2021 point guard from MoKan Elite AAU, has transferred to national power Sunrise Christian (KS) from Briarcrest Christian (TN).

    “I love Briarcrest and Coach Harrington,” he told ESPN. “Sunrise Christian will help me to keep improving. I’m very comfortable with their players and their environment. I trust coach Barnwell.”

    As a junior, he averaged 22.2 points, 4.3 assists and 2.6 steals per game to lead the Saints to the TSSAA Division II Class AA state title game.

    Sunrise Christian coach Luke Barnwell told ZAGSBLOG he’s delighted to add Chandler.

    “Kennedy Chandler has elite speed with incredible feel for the game and that, along with his ability to score at many levels, makes him a constant threat,” he said.

    “We are excited to have him and are ready to get to work!”

    Chandler recently announced he’s down to Memphis, Kentucky, Duke, Tennessee, and North Carolina.

    According to 247Sports, Chandler is ranked No. 15 nationally and is the No. 2 point guard.
