The Prep Hoops Circuit made its’ annual stop in Chicago over the weekend for the Summer Challenge, and prospects invaded gyms across the area for an action packed event.  The field was certainly not lacking for long-range marksmen.  Thankfully, local sporting goods stores had just enough nets in stock to replace those that were burned down by some impressive sharpshooters.  Here’s a look at a handful who impressed the most:


James Dent James Dent 6'3" | SG Springfield Southeast | 2021 State IL - A.I.A

James Dent James Dent 6'3" | SG Springfield Southeast | 2021 State IL is an absolute sniper.  Off the catch, off the bounce, off a ballscreen, it really doesn’t matter for Dent who filled it up from range all weekend.  He repeatedly told his opponents they couldn’t guard him, and that was certainly true at the Summer Challenge.  In an epic semi-final performance against a loaded Wisconsin Playground Club, Dent rarely hit any rim at all and buried 8 threes in route to a game high 27 points.  He is one of the most prolific shooters in the state of Illinois.  Honorable mention shout-out to his teammate Tyler Johnson Tyler Johnson 6'4" | SF Romeoville | 2021 State IL who also shot it particularly well in a pair of games I saw over the weekend.
