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 Libertyville 2018 small forward Drew Peterson.



Peterson is one of the more underrated prospects in the state of Illinois.  He is a smooth small forward with size at 6’7” that allows him to see over the defense.  Quality athlete that makes plays in transition, but his biggest strength is his perimeter shooting.  Knocks down shots at a quality clip with an effortless stroke.  Top 10 2018 recruit in the state.

Odds to Win:



Why He Can Win:

Peterson will have the opportunity to post big numbers.  He will be option 1, 2, and 3 for Libertyville.  If he can have some 30+ point games early in the season and create some momentum his candidacy could go up.


Obstacles to Win:

Not a ton of marquee games on the schedule for Peterson this upcoming season.  He will have to have an absolutely insane scoring season to even put himself in the race.
