AJ CaseyAJCasey6'8" | PFWhitney Young | 2022State#12NationIL (Whitney Young)

Current Ranking: #1

The new Whitney Young Dolphin is the premier prospect in the state’s junior class.  The four man has a tremendous combination of size, skill, mobility, athleticism, and upside.  He made major growth in his game as a sophomore playing more on the perimeter while also still showcasing his big time game around the hoop.  So smooth and fluid with everything he does scoring, rebounding, running the floor, and being an impactful player on the defensive end.  Five-star national recruit.


Kyle ThomasKyleThomas6'9" | CSt. Joseph's | 2022State#89NationIL (St. Joseph’s)

Current Ranking: #3

The St. Joe’s 6’8” five man snatches rebounds in traffic, gets on the glass for second chance points, throws down monster jams, and protects the rim defensively.  Even flashed a mid-range jumper that he is slowly developing.  His defensive game has always been his strength rebounding and shot blocking, but the offense is starting to come along!

Avila is a 6’8” four man
