The Prep Hoops Circuit ran events in July and August.  Many of the top prospects and teams from the state of Illinois participated in the events.  We begin our month long review of the circuit with our Illinois All-Circuit teams.  Check out the 2023 Illinois Prep Hoops Circuit First Team!


George Bellevue (Illinois T-Wolves)

Bellevue was the most consistent 15U performer throughout the month of July and August of any player in the state we saw.  The bouncy Lincoln Way East four man brought it each game.  Explosive leaper around the hoop getting on the offensive glass for second chance opportunities.  Rim runner with tremendous upside.  Very good shot blocker on the defensive end.

Griffith is a dynamic point guard from Simeon that had the best single performance of any 2023 on the circuit.  He dropped 40 points in a contest at Havoc in the Heartland for The Work Foundation.  Known for his elite handles he had defenders sliding all over the place.
