The strength of the 2021 class is definitely at the wing spot.  Eight of the top 10 overall prospects in the class are wings and 18 of the top 30!  That is an insanely high level group of D1 wings!  Here they are the best 2021 shooting guards and small forwards in the state of Illinois.


Max Christie (Rolling Meadows)

Travel Team: Illinois Wolves
Ranking: #1

Christie is the clear top 2021 player and is without question the top prospect in the state regardless of class.  The Rolling Meadows wing can score at a super high rate from all three levels.  Plus jump shooter from three and can handle it off the bounce scoring at the rim. Elite feel for the game as a wing scorer.  The best of the best nationally are recruiting him.



Bryce Hopkins (Fenwick)

Travel Team: MoKan
Ranking: #2

The big bodied wing is at his best using his skill to attack the defense off the dribble going downhill along with getting on the glass.  He was outstanding during June with his high school team and that continued in July with MoKan at Peach Jam.  Liked how he competed
