The Quincy Shootout is one of the premier mid-season classics in Illinois that takes place annually in the tradition-rich confines of Blue Devil Gym.  Top programs stretching from Tennessee all the way to the West Coast bring high end talent and excitement to the packed stands in this two-day hoops extravaganza.  This year’s event was as impressive as ever.  Illinois was well represented with 6 of the state’s top programs in action.  Here are the Illinois underclassmen who made their presence felt throughout the weekend:

6’5 So Jeremiah Talton | Quincy

There is significant buzz around Quincy surrounding their sophomore star Jeremiah Talton, and rightfully so.  He already looks the part at 6’5+ with length.  He is physically gifted and has a very high ceiling.  He has great elevation on his jumper and rose up and buried a number of threes in Saturday’s win over Centralia.  He has pogo-stick bounce and made a killing snatching offensive boards and finishing put backs through contact.  Jeremiah’s stock is rising weekly, and he is well on his way to being a household name throughout the state.

6’1 Jr Grant Hyer | Quincy Notre Dame

Grant is a gamer!  Very heads up, tough player
