Altadonna is a 5’10” point guard that was extremely productive during his freshman year on a young Highland team.  The lefty has a quick release and is effective as a spot up shooter.  Tough and crafty finishing in the lane with under the rim layups.  Drive and kick ability.


Peyton Bittle

Small guard that brings leadership and shooting to the table.

Fridley has long arms and a thin body.  Sound perimeter shooter with a free and easy release.  Creative passer in the lane that can dish it off a live dribble with either hand.  Decent off the bounce with smooth acceleration.  Change of pace is another one of his strengths.  One to watch moving forward in southern Illinois.


Caden Hawkins

The Carterville 5’10” point guard pushed it with speed and was a playmaker with the rock in his hands making good decisions as a passer.  Also drilled an array of pull up jumpers.


Joe Jansen

This big bodied and undersized 6’3” post played with physicality around the hoop.  Did all of his damage in the paint throughout the day.

Came away intrigued with this 6’3” guard.  Early on it was his passing that made an impression in the drive and kick along with hitting a rim runner in stride.  The solid athlete is a capable shot maker from beyond the arc and gets out in transition for finishes.  Has some projectability.


Cole PeppenhorstColePeppenhorst6'4" | PFBreese Mater Dei | 2023StateIL

The 6’4” four man is a mobile post that has a long and lanky frame with projectability.  Should continue to grow.  He can beat a defense in so many ways.  Skilled around the basket with a soft touch.  Nice looking hook shot.  Stretches the floor with his perimeter shooting knocking down a handful of them off the catch throughout the day.  Can put it on the deck slashing from the high post and is more than comfortable taking it off the defensive glass and pushing it on his own in transition.  Good area rebounder that once he adds strength will be even better.  Length plays well defensively as he can block a shot with good timing.

Liked the projectability here.  At 6’2” he has good length and can handle in the open floor.  Also connected on a three ball.


Seth Winekler

This 5’10” point guard was a fun player to watch.  Competed on the defensive end with his scrappy nature including blocking a shot on a recover.  Offensively he is a capable shooter off the catch and had a sweet scoop shot in the paint.
