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 2!

 

Jalen Brown Jalen Brown 5'10" | PG De La Salle | 2022 State IL (RISE)

With Bates out for RISE it was his De La Salle teammate who had to step up.  Brown did just that using his physical frame from his point guard spot to get downhill for scores.  Was more aggressive as a scorer throughout the event while still showcasing his passing feel.

 

Marcellius Cohen Marcellius Cohen 6'8" | PF De La Salle | 2022 State IL (RISE)

Cohen is a beast on the boards!  The De La Salle five man consistently put up games of 15+ rebounds all weekend.  Great size and strength with the ability to dominate on the glass when he is engaged.  High pointed them in traffic with both hands clearing the defensive glass consistently and crashed the offensive glass for quite a few put backs.  Rim runner in transition as well.

 

Ben VanderWal Ben VanderWal 6'5" | SF Timothy Christian | 2022 State IL (Breakaway)

Huge weekend for the Timothy Christian 6’7” small forward.  He established himself as one of the top wings in Illinois by showing he is much more than just a shooter.  He does that very well however knocking
