Area All-Star Teams: Chicago Suburbs

High School

Posted On: 10/10/17 3:00 PM

What area of the state has the best talent?  We designed our “All-Area All-Star Teams” for five regions throughout the state of Illinois.  Here is our Chicago Suburbs All-Star Team.


Chicago Suburbs

PG: DJ Steward (Fenwick)

Steward is only a sophomore, but he is the best in the state.  He is a smooth floor general that can score and dish.

SG: Perry Cowan (DePaul Prep)

Cowan will be a nice backcourt running mate with Steward as he can hit jumpers and score from a variety of areas on the floor.

SF: Drew Peterson (Libertyville)

Peterson is a skilled shooter that will fit well on the perimeter spacing the floor and getting out in transition for this squad.

PF: Zion Griffin (Hinsdale South)

Griffin is the star for this team.  The powerful combo forward will be able to play both spots using his strength, athleticism, and versatility.

C: Ryan Davis (Conant)

Davis will be asked to rebound at a high level for this squad and the state’s #3 2018 center will also space the floor in the pick and pop.



Guard: DeAndre Heckard (Romeoville)

Heckard is a perfect backup point guard to Steward bringing veteran leadership and scoring pop off the bench.

Guard: Joseph Yesufu (Bolingbrook)

Yesufu is a quick and shifty guard that will be a speedster in transition and energizer bunny off the bench.

Wing: Martin Macenis (Stagg)

Macenis will backup Peterson on the wing and there won’t be much of a drop off as they have a similar skilled offensive game.

Wing: Bryant Brown (Waukegan)

Brown is a versatile player that can play both forward spots while getting to the rack, rebounding, and playing defense.

Post: Jalen Shaw (Larkin)

Shaw is one of the best posts coming off the bench on any of these teams.  We feel he will fit best as a rim protector, rebounder, and running the floor.

Post: Ciaran Brayboy (New Trier)

Brayboy is an upside post that can develop offensively and provide a nice compliment inside to either senior center.
