In this series we take a look at the potential candidates for Mr. Basketball in the state of Illinois for this upcoming season.  Here we profile Hinsdale South 2016 center Barret Benson.



Hinsdale South post Barret Benson is the top big man in the state’s senior class.  He is a skilled back to the basket post that seals well and finishes around the hoop with sound moves.  Expanding his game to the mid-range and is a solid passer.  Benson is committed to Northwestern where he will be a centerpiece for their future frontcourt.

Odds to Win:


Why he Can Win:

Benson should put up consistent numbers both in points and rebounds throughout the year.  He has the name recognition as he has been on the radar since he came into high school.  The senior will play a high profile game down state in front of media members from the metro east region.  Being committed to a local Big 10 school can’t hurt either!


Obstacles to Win:
