The Chicago Elite Classic was this past weekend. This great event featured eight games filled with high level prospects on Saturday. PrepHoops dives into our prospect evaluations on the event. Here is our 2019 Illinois Evaluations Part 2!
SF Tujautae Williams (Orr)
Williams and his Orr squad were a late add, but the state’s second best unsigned senior showed his immense talent. At 6’6” Williams has size to play and guard multiple wing spots at the next level. Long and lanky body. He attacks with force. At times he can be a bit out of control. Such an explosive athlete going down the lane. He connected on a pair of mid-range jumpers pulling up off the bounce. That is the area he has to prove he can be consistent. Solid job on the boards as well. Williams went for 12 points (5-14 FG) and 9 rebounds.
SG Greg Outlaw (Orr)
It was a rough outing for one of the top unsigned wings in the state. Outlaw is a strong and super athletic wing that transferred over from Bogan. He played very well a week ago when we saw him in Springfield. Struggled shooting the ball in this game going 2-14 from the field. Didn’t convert at the rim like he usually does. On the positive side we liked his quick second jump to the glass and he was solid defensively recording a four steals. Stat line was 5 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 steals.
G Terry Williams (Orr)
Williams is a combo guard that is known for his shooting. Didn’t shoot it well again just like in Springfield only going 1-6 from deep. Got to the foul line and was solid as a passer finishing with 10 points.
PF Rashaun Agee (Bogan)
Agee is the top unsigned post in the state of Illinois for the senior class. The 6’8” broad shouldered power forward was solid, but not spectacular in Bogan’s win. What he did best what get on the offensive glass for put backs. Quality rebounder with his strong hands and frame. He runs the floor hard. Most impressive offensive play was an and-1 on a reverse layup. He had 8 points and 6 rebounds.
PG Jeremiah Washington (Bogan)
The Ferris State signee is a compact lead guard that lives off his speed! He pushes the ball in the open floor and has a burst off the bounce in the half court. Explosive first step and has body control at the rim. Solid passer as well. Wasn’t his best game, but he did what he needed to lead his team to the win going for 9 points (4-12 FG), 5 rebounds, and 4 assists.
PG Jordan Booker (Bogan)
The other quick twitched point guard for Bogan is Tiger Booker. The senior is a smaller guard that is a volume scorer. He has questionable shot selection, but with his athleticism and burst he can be a playmaker when the ball is in his hands. Was most impressive as a distributor throwing 6 dimes to no turnovers. Gets in the lane. He had 9 points (4-14 FG), 6 rebounds, and 6 assists.
PG Chris Roberts (Morgan Park)
Roberts is the top available point guard on the board in the senior class. The speedy lead guard actually came off the bench for the Mustangs in this game. He got to the rim converting an and-1 and another acrobatic layup, but overall he didn’t finish as well in the paint as he usually does. Did a nice job on the glass from his lead guard spot. Roberts had 6 points and 5 rebounds.
SG Kyle Grover (Morgan Park)
Grover got the start for the Mustangs at the CEC. First time checking him out. The 6’4” wing has positional size and is a solid athlete. Went 2-2 from the field on inside scores for 4 points.
SF Deshawnd Washington (Morgan Park)
Another Morgan Park prospect we were unfamiliar with coming into the game. He has good size at 6’5” with a long and lanky frame. Where he excelled was getting on the offensive glass for second chance points. Grabbed five offensive rebounds with his quick second jump. He had 14 points (6-8 FG) and 9 rebounds.
SG Myles Baker (Whitney Young)
Baker is the top available prospect in the state of Illinois regardless of position. The 6’3” shooting guard is an ultra-smooth scorer. Feathery touch from three and that is exactly what he did best in this game. He connected on four triples total both spotting up and off the bounce. Clean and consistent mechanics time after time. Baker also hit some jumpers inside the paint including a crisp one dribble pull up. Made a few nice passes as well from his off guard spot. Went for 18 points (7-11 FG), 4 rebounds, and 2 assists.
PG Justin Warren (Whitney Young)
Warren started and played with poise on the big stage. He has quietly been a contributor for this group over the last year despite not getting the hype of his fellow guards. Warren went coast to coast for a tough layup. Also got a bucket in the paint on a strong cut where he received the ball and put it in. Warren had 8 points and 8 rebounds.
PG Kejuan Clements (Simeon)
Clements is the senior leader for the Wolverines. Really the only key player returning from last year’s loaded squad. He got downhill and to the charity stripe a ton in this game going 11-15 from the foul line. His shots weren’t falling in this game from the field and he had a lot of turnovers recording six in the contest. Final state line was 13 points and 4 boards.
SG Antonio Reeves (Simeon)
Reeves played his first game in Chicago after moving back from a prep school in Arizona. The two guard is one of the top unsigned prospects on the board at the wing spot. He is mostly known as a spot up shooter, but only went 1-5 from deep in this game. Was impressed with how he scored in the lane with some quick finishes and floaters. Also did a nice job on the glass. He had 15 points and 10 rebounds.
PF Jeremiah Stamps (Simeon)
Stamps will have to be a key contributor this season giving the Wolverines some size inside. Big body that has decent mobility. Area rebounder that plays primarily in the paint. He had 3 points and 6 rebounds.
