In our last look at the new 2022 rankings PHI dives into the best post prospects in Illinois from the sophomore class.  Here are the top power forward and centers in 2022!


AJ Casey (Tinley Park)

Current Ranking: #1

Casey has been the top prospect in this class since they entered high school and the gap is only widening!  He has the look of a five-star with his size, length, and strength.  The power forward is just so smooth with every single thing that he does.  The area he has really improved is his ball handling.  That has opened up so many more avenues for him to score.  Flashes to the middle of the lane for mid-range pull ups.  His quickness and athleticism on the interior are what set him apart.  He does spin moves on the block along with up and unders for buckets.  He runs the floor hard and is playing with so much confidence.


Kyle Thomas (St. Joseph)

Current Ranking: #3

Thomas has tremendous size and a great frame at 6’9”.  As a scorer
