The Illinois Wolves power forwards are flying off the board!  Yesterday it was Tom Welch and on Friday night Streamwood 2019 four man Keenon Cole made his commitment to Northern Illinois.  He told us why they were his choice.

“Northern Illinois has showed so much love throughout the recruiting process.  They were at all of my summer games and always let me know how interested they were in me.  It’s also close to home and whenever I’m on campus I’m comfortable as if I’m at home.”

Cole is a bouncy four man that plays with a high motor and is extremely active.  Super quick second jump allowing him to get on the offensive glass for put backs.  He did a nice job playing post defense throughout the month of July even against big men that are stronger than him.  Cole uses his length and quickness on both ends of the floor.  Athleticism around the hoop finishing.  Cole has shown growth on his perimeter jumper over the last year.

The Streamwood rising senior is the #8 power forward in the PrepHoopsIllinois 2019 Rankings.
