Congratulations to Streamwood 2019 power forward Keenon Cole on winning the PrepHoopsIllinois Player of the Week! Against St. Charles North he had 32 points and 12 boards.
Cole received 39% of the votes cast. We caught up with Cole go discuss his junior campaign!
“This year I have developed the ability to score more off the dribble. I have been handling the ball a lot more and coming off ball screens and making right reads. I now consistently hit pull up jumpers and get to the rim a lot easier.”
He is averaging 17 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 blocks per contest. This summer he will be running with the Illinois Wolves in the UAA
“I look forward to playing with top players like Bryant (Brown) and Perry (Cowan). I know with the Wolves that on the circuit they will allow me to show how versatile I am.”
Where do things stand with recruiting?
“I frequently talk to Tulsa University. I like how they keep in touch with me. I visited Kent State a couple months ago and they send mail here and there.”
He further discussed those programs.
“Both good conferences that I could see myself playing at. Tulsa I like that they have versatile bigs. Kent State was very welcoming and easy to connect with.”
