Conference Preview

The Pangos All-Midwest Frosh/Soph Camp was a great chance for PrepHoopsIllinois to evaluate some of the top up and coming talent in the state.  Here we dive into some of the sophomores in Pangos: 2022 Illinois Evals Part 1!


F Xavier Amos (Whitney Young – 2022)

Amos was one of the more physically impressive prospects we saw over the weekend.  The 6’7” power forward has tremendous strength and athleticism.  The Dolphins sophomore was active on the glass for second chance opportunities using his quickness to get put backs.  Mid-range shot is an area he showed well offensively.  Amos can put the ball on the deck some especially from the high post.  Potential as a three point shooter.  Not consistent from there yet, but can get there.  Defensively he has the tools to be a monster on that end of the floor if he locks in!


SG Byron Hobbs Jr (Lindblom – 2022)

This 6’4” two guard has a long and rangy build with broad shoulders.  Good projectability long term.  Plays with a lot of energy.  Runs the floor hard and cut hard to the hoop for a score on an out of bounds play.
