Conference Preview

Posted On: 06/9/20 6:00 AM

With no spring and summer basketball going on we wanted to do a deep dive into the prospects across the state by reviewing their season long highlight tapes and giving our evaluation of their strengths as a prospect along with projected college level.  Here is our Film Room: 2021 Chicago North Suburbs Prospects!


Jake Wolf Jake Wolf 6'7" | PF Lake Forest Academy | 2021 State IL (Lake Forest Academy)

Wolf stands at 6’9” with quality size and has added strength over his career. Brings some face up skills to the five position.  For him it starts with his footwork on the block and from 10 feet in.  Touch with both hands around the basket.  Right handed hook shot is his biggest weapon at this stage.  Passes well out of doubles in the post to cross court shooters and cutters.  Capable shooter from mid-range and can stretch out to three as a spot up shooter with nice shot prep.  Average athlete that will have to improve in that area.  Projects as a low-major prospect at this stage.


Walter Mattingly (Deerfield)

Mattingly stands at 6’7” with a long and thin frame.  Will need to add strength moving forward to max out his ability.  We came away impressed
