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 #6 - #10!


#6 Kyle ThomasKyleThomas6'9" | CSt. Joseph's | 2022State#89NationIL (St. Joseph’s – 2022)

Last Year’s Rank: #18

Thomas is a well developed five man that has great strength in his upper body.  His athleticism continues to improve and he has really grown into his frame over the last year.  Defense is ahead of offense with his elite rim protection ability along with how well he boards.  The offense is coming fast and furious with how well he has shot it from mid-range and the fluidity we have seen over the last six months on that end.


#7 Ahamad BynumAhamadBynum6'2" | SGSimeon | 2021State#94NationIL (Simeon – 2021)

Last Year’s Rank: #9

This DePaul commit is a straight bucket getter.  Bynum knows how to score from all three levels and when he gets hot can absolutely carry a team for stretches.  We like to refer to him as the ultimate microwave
