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: 2022 Central Illinois Prospects Pt 1!

 

Jalen Quinn Jalen Quinn 6'3" | PG Tuscola | 2022 State #196 Nation IL (Tuscola)

Quinn is a 6’3” point guard that has good strength.  Plays small school competition, but absolutely dominated as a sophomore averaging 21 points, 7.5 rebounds, 4 dimes, and 3 steals per game.  Crisp ball handler with some shake.  Can also attack with strong straight line drives where he blows past his defender.  Finishes well with either hand at the cup especially on runners.  Creative passer in the lane throwing bullet passes off a live dribble.  Sound form on perimeter jump shot from three and pulling up in the mid-range.  Mid-major plus/high-major prospect!

Gus Lucas Gus Lucas 6'5" | PF Washington | 2022 IL (Washington)

This undersized 6’5” strong bodied left handed power forward with broad shoulders is an at or below the rim athlete.  Nifty finisher inside that can take a bump at the rim.  Can hit an occasional three.  High level baseball prospect.
