Hayden Hoffman Hayden Hoffman 6'0" | PG Carlyle | 2022 IL

Hoffman had the best game we have seen him against NEBC at The Finale.  The 6’0” Carlyle point guard was lights out shooting the rock.  Drilled four from beyond the arc off the catch.  Can play some on the ball, but is most effective spotting up for threes.  Had a smooth two dribble pull up as well.


Justin King Justin King 6'4" | PG Mascoutah | 2022 State IL

King is one of the best guards in southern Illinois.  The 6’3” point guard has long arms and a slender build.  Smooth acceleration with the ball in his hands.  Excels in transition both as a finisher and passer.  Gets to the rim where he is a quality layup maker and passes it well dumping off to his teammates.  Slick handles slithering through the defense getting to the rim and hitting runners.  Capable shooter that continues to improve.  Moves feet defensively and flashes on that end.  Low-major plus/mid-major prospect at this stage.


Wilson Lodge

Lodge is an undersized four man at 6’4” that rebounds very well in his area. 


Brady Moore Brady Moore 6'1" | SG Breese Central | 2022 State IL

  • Check out his RecruitMe Profile HERE.

Moore is a 6’3” tough and hard-nosed shooting guard with a strong body.  His toughness and competiveness makes up for some of his lack of athleticism at the high school level.  Gritty rebounder for a guard.  Crafty in the lane as a finisher.  Solid jump shooter that hits spot up threes and can shot fake coming in for a one dribble pull up.  Projects early in the process as a high end small college prospect that in-state programs at that level should prioritize early.


Jacob Patton Jacob Patton 5'11" | PG Breese Mater Dei | 2022 IL

  • Check out his RecruitMe Profile HERE.

Patton is a 5’11” crafty point guard that is adept at getting in the lane for nifty finishes at the cup.  Takes his man from the mid-range with a couple dribbles making difficult layups.


Jack Seibert

At 6’3” this wing was aggressive attacking the hoop. Scored well in the lane.  Area rebounder and passes well for a wing.
