Prep Hoops Illinois recently evaluated a group of quality prospects from central Illinois at the Midwest Best Hoops First 48 Event.  Here are our top performers from the semi final games in Midwest Best Hoops First 48 Semis: Standouts!


Devon VanderheydtDevonVanderheydt6'7" | PFWashington | 2021StateIL (Washington – 2021)

Vanderheydt was very impressive in the semis.  The 6’7” face up four has a lot of the tools that colleges are looking for in their versatile front court players.  He is a plus shooter with a quick, concise, and high release.  Effective spotting up, pick/pop, along with running into them in transition.  Brings bounce to the position as well with his athleticism which was shown off on one dunk where he literally put his knee through a defender.  Like how well he rebounded on the defensive end and consistently got it and went on his own handling it with ease in the open floor.  Solid defender that can switch on the perimeter and look comfortable doing it.  D2 programs should take a serious look here.


Andrew LewisAndrewLewis6'1" | PGWashington | 2022StateIL (Washington – 2022)

Lewis is a left-handed floor general that combines athleticism and basketball IQ at the lead guard spot.  Shifty ball handler
