Conference Preview: Central State Eight


Posted On: 11/7/17 3:00 PM

The high school season is almost here in the state of Illinois!  With that we look at some of the top conferences throughout the state and some of the prospects in those conferences!  Today it is the Central State Eight!


Pre-Season Player of Year

SG Cardell McGee (Springfield Lanphier – 2018)

There are several quality senior guards that could be the pick for this, but it is a smart bet to go with the Lanphier star guard.  This year that player is Cardell McGee.  He bounced back to have a strong close to the July period with Wisconsin Playground Warriors and we expect a big senior year.  McGee is a two guard that can score, dish, defend, and board.  His versatility is his biggest calling card.
