Posted On: 01/17/18 6:00 PM

St. Ignatius 2018 small forward Luke Deely is having a very strong senior season for his high school squad.  He has had a breakout season leading his team in scoring.  We caught up with the senior forward to see how his season is going.

“As a team we had a great good start.  Then we had a couple guys come back and lost some rhythm, but we are starting to click now more and we should be a good team.  Individually I think I started out good.  Big games I step up.  I have been doing a lot of post-up game.  I think with (Luke) Nauman back I will be more on the perimeter now.”

Deely spoke about his game and what he feels his strengths are as a player.

“I would say three point shooting, driving, and finishing.  I think I need to work on my mid-range.  I think driving would be my number one.”

Several colleges have reached out to Deely to gauge his recruiting interest.

“I have talked to some schools like St. Norbert and Beloit.  Some close local colleges like Aurora.”

Definitely a player that small colleges should monitor in the second half of the season.
