Who was the PrepHoopsIllinois Player of the Week? Make sure you vote for your favorite through Wednesday night! These are five players that impressed at the Team Rose Classic!
SG LJ Johnson (Young & Reckless Parham 17U)
Johnson is a shooting guard who is moving back to Kenwood after a year away from the state. This kid can really score it, but his high energy on defense and on the glass stood out the most.
PG Zach Vaia (Breakaway 17U)
Vaia is a 5’9” lead guard from Riverside Brookfield that can really pass the rock. While getting others involved he can also score on his own as he did for Breakaway.
PF Sangolay Njie (Team Rose 16U)
Njie was playing on his home floor and the Whitney Young forward came out with a high motor rebounding and finishing around the hoop.
PG Alex Wood (Young & Reckless Brown 16U)
Wood is one of the best young guards in central Illinois and the Normal U-High guard showed why scoring 24 points in one game while controlling the pace of the contest.
SF Nate Santos (Chicago Elite 16U)
Santos is a skilled wing prospect that can score in a variety of ways. He did exactly that in the contest we saw getting buckets in the paint and on jumpers.
