Each Sunday in the winter we will be providing updates on a group of unsigned seniors from a variety of college levels and different parts of the state. Check out our latest Senior Sunday: Recruiting Updates!
SG Armon Brummett (Decatur MacArthur)
Quietly behind the scenes Bradley has been monitoring and tracking this central Illinois shooting guard for a while and on Tuesday it resulted in a commitment. Brummett is a super athletic and strong volume scorer that has deep range on his shot. Will have to improve shot selection at the college level.
G Zach Robinson (St. Charles East)
Another commitment happened with the decision of St. Charles East combo guard Zach Robinson to go to UW Oshkosh. Robinson is a strongly built guard that can really shoot it from three off the catch. He will have his Tri City Thunder running mate Eric Peterson heading with him to his future college program.
SG Zion Young (Simeon)
Young is one of the D1 prospects in the senior class that we are fans of and feel is being a bit overlooked. He is a physical wing with freakish athleticism that can play above the rim and shoot it from three. His high school coach Robert Smith told us that he holds offers from Western Illinois, Wisconsin Milwaukee, UIC, and Chicago State. He is still open to other schools.
SG Damaria Franklin (Niles North)
Franklin is a thick bodied wing that has the ability to score. He is athletic and strong enough to score at the rim and has proven to be a plus shooter off the catch. Franklin says the four main schools he is hearing from are Winthrop, UMass Lowell, State Fair, and Moberly. Franklin is a prospect that might have to go JUCO.
PF Kyle King (St. Charles East)
King is an uber skilled four man that isn’t going to wow you with his athleticism, but he can really score on the block with a wide variety of moves. Efficient with his touches. He says he is being recruited by Augustana, UW Oshkosh, Whitewater, Elmhurst, and several D2’s have shown preliminary interest. He would be an absolute steal for a small college and D2’s should really consider him.
SG Caleb Frederking (Okawville)
Frederking is one of the best small high school players in southern Illinois. He is a skilled wing that can shoot it and plays with confidence. The two schools showing the most interest right now are Knox College and Illinois College. He visited both over the summer. Quincy has reached out to him recently.
SG Justin Boyd (Whitney Young)
Boyd is your classic 3 and D guy at the college level. Spot up shooter that is best hitting from the corners and is a solid defender on the wing. The school that is most involved right now is D2 Tusculum out of Tennessee. He doesn’t hold an offer yet, but they are in contact. San Jose State has also inquired a little Boyd says.
C Tyler Joest (Breese Central)
Joest is a 6’9” center with size and the ability to score with his back to the basket. Can also face up hitting pick/pop shots. He says that Millikin, Lindenwood Belleville, Illinois Wesleyan, and Monmouth are all heavily recruiting him by coming to his games and communicating weekly. He will visit St. Louis College of Pharmacy next week. Davenport, William Penn, Columbia College, Carson Newman and UMSL are also in the mix.
PF Daylen Davis-Williams (Danville)
Davis-Williams is a tough and physical forward that can play inside-out. Good area rebounder and is tough! His high school coach tell us he is hearing from several JUCO’s including Lakeland, Lewis & Clark, and Parkland where he plans on visiting soon.
F Terrence Shannon (Lincoln Park)
Shannon is one of the biggest stock risers in the latest 2018 rankings. He went from unranked to #32 overall. The senior could very well be higher once we get another look at him. Long and lanky wing that can handle it, shoot from three, and rebound. Considerable upside. He says he has had inquiries from IPFW, Wisconsin Milwaukee, and Eastern Illinois. It is possible that he might have to go the JUCO route. Shannon has decided that he wants to focus on hoops in college as he was also hearing from football programs.
