Over the last month we released our latest rankings for the classes of 2021, 2022, and 2023.  What if you took those classes and did an overall ranking regardless of class?   This is what they would look like!  This is our Illinois Top 50 Prospects Regardless of Class!

Today we unveil prospects #31 - #35!

 

#31 Xavier LewisXavierLewis6'8" | PFTF South | 2022StateIL (TF South – 2022)

Last Year’s Rank: NR

Lewis fits the new age power forward spot to perfection.  He has nice size, length, and athleticism for the position.  The TF South standout can defend all over the floor with his physical tools.  Offensively he is so quick to the offensive glass, rim runs, and is becoming a threat as a pick/pop guy.

 

#32 Blake PetersBlakePeters6'1" | SGEvanston | 2021StateIL (Evanston – 2021)

Last Year’s Rank: NR

Peters has been known as an ELITE shooter for a long time.  The Princeton commit is still that as he has one of the best shooting strokes we have scouted over the last decade.  What has helped see his stock rise the most however is the growth in his all-around game passing, putting it on the deck, and his improved athleticism.
