With no travel team season in the spring there are players that could be flying under the radar now that would have blown up this spring!  A pair of teammates “Names to Know” are Glenbard West power forward Braden HuffBradenHuff6'9" | PFGlenbard West | 2022StateIL and shooting guard Caden Pierce.

Huff is one of the more intriguing 2022 post prospects in the state.  He stands at 6’9” with a long and very thin frame.  Will definitely need to add considerable strength over the next few years to be able to deal with the physicality at the next level.  So much to like here.  He is a face up four man that can really shoot the ball from the perimeter.  Plus shooter off the catch that hits threes consistently.  Shot mechanics start a little low, but that can be cleaned up easily.  Excellent passer out of the high post and even initiating the offense.  Finds cutters and hits guys on the move for scores.  Handles it pretty well for a power forward although he is left hand dominant.  Touch inside and despite being thin he does a good job of playing through contact to convert at the rim.  Fits the new age face up
