Who are the top 2023 shooting guards and small forwards in the state of Illinois?  Here are the best of the best at this stage of the process!


Bryce Coleman Bryce Coleman 6'6" | SG Niles Notre Dame | 2023 State #105 Nation IL (St. Rita)

Ranking: #4

Coleman has a strong build, but maintains his athleticism.  Very high skill level out of this Catholic League wing.  He looks super smooth and effortless off the release shooting the ball.  Gets loose in transition for scores.  Defensively he can check multiple spots and is a shot blocker from his wing position.


Asa Thomas Asa Thomas 6'6" | SG Lake Forest | 2023 State #114 Nation IL (Lake Forest)

Rankings: #5

Thomas is a big wing at 6’6” with a high skill level.  Quick release on his shot drilling them at a high clip from beyond the arc.  Impactful in other areas including blocking shots, dishing to shooters, and getting to the cup in the open floor.


Cameron Christie Cameron Christie 6'4" | SG Rolling Meadows | 2023 State #116 Nation IL (Rolling Meadows)

Rankings: #6

Silky smooth game in the open floor which he showed throughout all the Illinois Wolves scrimmages.  He gets to the rim where he either scores or is fouled.  Just like his older brother he has a feathery mid-range shot that can stretch out to beyond the arc
