What 2022 prospects from Illinois were the most impressive at Chi-Town Tip Off?  We dive into that here in Chi-Town Tip Off: Illinois Top Performers Pt 1!


KJ Debrick KJ Debrick 6'7" | C Springfield Lanphier | 2021 State IL (Illinois Hoopstars)

The positive momentum keeps rolling along for this Springfield Lanphier center.  He is headed to prep school next year and after what we saw this weekend looks like a mid-major player after that.  The wide bodied five man is in the best shape of his career and it is showing with dominant play inside.  The true five man plays with power, excellent footwork, and touch around the basket.  Even stretched it out looking more comfortable as a shooter.  High level area rebounder that snatched boards over and over again in traffic.  Love the way plays physical inside grabbing rebounds and putting his body on others boxing out.


Christian Meeks Christian Meeks 6'6" | SF Homewood Flossmoor | 2022 State IL (Illinois Hoopstars)

Meeks is a high energy combo forward that brings it each and every time he hits the floor.  Tenacity is off the charts with this Homewood Flossmoor product.  He works well out of the high-post attacking with a couple quick dribbles, gets out in transition, and excels at crashing the offensive glass
