What prospects in the 2022 class emerged during the second half of the high school basketball season?  Here are a few of the new names that jumped on our radar with their play!


Sean Paige Sean Paige 6'8" | PF Anderson | 2022 State IN (Willowbrook)

The 6’7” four man competed against an older and stronger Palatine front line when we saw him.  Blocked several shots.  Solid rebounder and defender with upside offensively.  Showed physical tools that can be developed long term.


Brayden Pals Brayden Pals 6'5" | PF Effingham | 2022 State IL (Effingham)

Pals is a new name that emerged on our radar with his play in January.  The 6’5” power forward has some projectability and should continue to grow.  Sealed for a score in the paint and had an and-1.


Khaje Branch Khaje Branch 6'8" | C Thornton Fractional North | 2022 State IL (TF North)

Branch is a strong bodied five man with a wide frame at 6’8”.  A bit slow, but moves pretty well for his size.  The five man posted up very strong in the first half in their quarter final game at the Salem Invitational calling for the ball.  He scored on a left handed hook shot and a dump off pass.  Missed a few bunnies, but displayed solid footwork.  Really like the potential here long
