Yesterday we examined a list of the top performances from the state of Illinois from over the weekend.  Now we do a deeper dive into a few prospects that impressed us at Battle at the Lakes helping boost their stock.


Elijah Watson (Young & Reckless 17U)

This TF South combo forward had an excellent game on Saturday morning.  Good length and he used that getting on the glass with a quick second jump for put backs.  The bouncy forward also won off the dribble slashing and finishing well at the rim.


CJ Nwosu (Full Package 17U)

Nwosu continues to raise his stock each and every event he plays in.  The Von Steuben wing plays really hard every time out.  He is also very productive with the way he gets to the rim with aggressive drives and has an adequate three point shot.


Justin Cross (Team Rose 17U)

Cross is an OPRF product that has always been a prospect because of his size and length, but wasn’t ever overly productive.  Liked what he did a lot over the weekend for Team Rose.  Rebounded very well in traffic snatching rebounds out of the air.  Also used his length defensively
