A pair of prospects from the state of Illinois made their college decisions on Wednesday night.  Both are headed off to D2 programs where they should be very successful.  Lyons jumbo combo guard Tyrese Shines was the first to make a call.  He recently visited Minnesota-Crookston where he got an offer and shortly after returning made a commitment.  He told us why they were his choice.

“When I went on my visit it was amazing.  I loved the campus, the players, and the coaches.  Everything felt right about the school.  That is why I chose it.”

Shines is a big guard that can play both on or off the ball.  Has a knack for scoring with his mid-range game and has improved as a spot up shooter.  Did a nice job as well of getting to the line during July.  Like his potential defensively with his long arms.

He ran with the Illinois Heat on the travel team circuit.
