Gurmane SpringfieldGurmaneSpringfield6'5" | PFChampaign Centennial | 2023StateIL (Champaign Centennial)

Rankings: #31

Springfield is a physical power forward that mauled on the offensive glass in several early events for the Hoopstars.

 

Keon AlexanderKeonAlexander6'6" | PFBolingbrook | 2023StateIL (Bolingbrook)

Ranking: #38

Alexander is a 6’6” left handed power forward that has bounce and quickness in the paint.  Rebounds pretty well especially on the offensive end getting second chance points.  Finishes in the pick/roll and also has a hook shot.  Intriguing long term prospect to track.

 

Sherod DentSherodDent6'6" | PFProvidence St. Mel | 2023StateIL (Providence St. Mel)

Rankings: #54

Dent is an intriguing combo forward with his strong frame, athleticism, and upside as a young prospect.  Can hit the three ball, but is a bigger factor when he crashes the offensive glass and uses his quickness inside.

 

Ben OosterbannBenOosterbann6'4" | PFHinsdale Central | 2023StateIL (Hinsdale Central)

Rankings: #70

Another Hinsdale Central power forward that fits the mold of the previous ones with his face up ability shooting and can put it on the deck.
