At Prep Hoops Illinois we are always looking ahead to the next group of top players.  In this series we dive into a look at the top incoming freshman on our radar at this point.

Today we speak with Glenbard North wing JJ Hernandez.  He is the cousin of recent D1 prospect Jeremiah Hernandez.  We saw him at the HIT Scrimmage this fall and can see a lot of similarities at the same stage.  Plus size at 6’4” with a projectable frame to continue to grow and fill out.  He is a silky smooth ball handler that can win off the bounce.  Flashes passing flair.  Gets on the glass for put backs and is a solid defender.  Here is our Intro 2024: JJ Hernandez!


How would you best describe your game at this stage?

I describe my game as a shooting guard able to play any position on the floor when needed and is able to score at all times.


What is your current height and weight?

6’4” 175 lbs


Is there a recent player from Illinois that you pattern your game after?
