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 Morgan Park 2018 point guard Ayo Dosunmu

 

Profile:

Morgan Park 2018 point guard Ayo Dosunmu is the top prospect in the state of Illinois.  He is a slick lead guard that has the ability to get to the hoop at will.  The most explosive driver of the basketball in the state.  He finishes exceptionally well and is one of the best at that in the entire country.  One of those players that makes any team he is on significantly better from the minute he steps on the floor.

Odds to Win:

3/2

 

Why He Can Win:

Dosunmu first of all has the brand name!  He is the top senior prospect in the state and most of the time those guys have a very good chance to win this award.  Everyone knows his name and Morgan Park coming into the season as the defending state champs.  He will be playing on one of the best teams in Illinois and have high profile games on a weekly basis.  This kid steps up to every single task put in front of him.  No doubt he is the preseason favorite!

 

Obstacles to Win:

Honestly not a ton of obstacles here.  One could potentially be he has to share the backcourt shine with new transfer elite sophomore Adam Miller.  Even with that Ayo is going to put up big time numbers.  At this time there are very limited aspects holding him back from this award hence him being the leader heading into the season.
