Last Year’s Rank: NR

Jackson is a super athletic lead guard that can change the game with his speed and the energy he brings to the game.  Burst in transition with the rock.  In the half court he is learning to run a team while still finding his spots to score.


#37 Jeremiah TaltonJeremiahTalton6'6" | SFQuincy | 2022State#188NationIL (Quincy – 2022)

Last Year’s Rank: NR

Long and lanky wing that has added strength since his sophomore season.  What we like about Talton is his projectability on both ends.  Plus shooter that has a free and easy release from beyond the arc.  Length plays well defensively and he is willing to sacrifice his body to take a charge.
