Prep Hoops Illinois took in week 5 action at the Rock N Ball Winter League in Hammond, Indiana on Friday.  Here are the prospects that stood out most to me in Rock N Ball Week 5: Scotty B’s Standouts!


Jakobi HeadyJakobiHeady6'6" | SFHillcrest | 2021StateIL (Hillcrest – 2021)

Heady is a lengthy combo forward that is the top uncommitted wing in the state.  He showed a versatile game on Friday despite not hitting any perimeter shots.  Fadeway out of the post worked well for him.  He handled it in transition getting to the rim.  Threw down several big dunks off lobs.  His athleticism and mobility around the hoop allow him to maneuver the ball around defenders.  Crashed the glass for second chance points.  He was an active defender both inside and out.  Low-major and mid-majors need to invest some time here as he is the #14 overall prospect in the class.


John PoulakidasJohnPoulakidas6'5" | SFNeuqua Valley | 2021State#155NationIL (Neuqua Valley – 2021)

The Yale commit is one of the elite shot makers in the state right now.  He has been for years and keeps improving each and every time we see him perform.  Poulakidas is a lefty that is a sniper from beyond
