Ray’Sean Taylor 5’11 PG 2020 Collinsville/Gateway Taylor is a virtually unknown guard out of Collinsville, but that is soon to change.

 Lorenzo Ferrell 6’4 SG 2018 Rutherford (FL)/Georgia Trendsetters Hands down the best shooter at Nike spring showdown Ferrell had a great showing offensively.

Maurice Commander 2018 PG Curie/Young & Reckless Some might say Commander is a shooting guard trapped in a point guards body, but man does this kid have a burner so it’s easy to see why thats what most say. He can score from all three levels but has an absolutely deadly jumper with deep range. The…

Jaylin Gibson 2021 G Evanston/Hoop Avenues This was our first time viewing Gibson and we left impressed. The 6’3 guard already has a solid, strong frame and is likely to grow more.

DJ Steward 2020 SG Fenwick/Meanstreets If Miller is #1 in 2020 then Steward is a close 2nd. The slippery combo guard impresses you first with his length. That length suggests he still has quite a bit of growing to do. Disrupts passing lanes at a high rate and turns over ball handlers. Gets to the…

Cam Irvin 2017 SG Morgan Park/Mac Irvin Fire Irvin is a shooter through-and-through. The unsigned graduated senior is playing this July in hopes that his shooting prowess can draw attention from some new schools. Irvin can pull up from well beyond NBA-range but is better off the catch. In-your-face defender who doesn’t give up an inch.…

Eric Price 2021 SG Galesburg/Quad City Elite Price is a thick and strong wing out of Galesburg. He doesn’t pass the look test, but he is a gamer. The lefty has some sneaky athleticism that he showcased with a chase down block on the break. Has a little bit of range but scored mainly off…
