We were at the Prep Hoops Havoc in the Heartland event in Indianapolis May 15-16.  It was a great event full of talent from across the state line in Illinois.  Here is a look at some of the prospects that caught our eye in Havoc in the Heartland: Top Illinois 2023 Standouts!


Darrin Ames Darrin Ames 6'0" | PG Kenwood | 2023 State #71 Nation IL (Mac Irvin Fire)

Ames more than lived up to his lofty status coming into the event.  The Kenwood southpaw was dominant in both games we saw him play.  Absolutely nobody was stopping him from getting in the lane where he finished with an array of acrobatic layups on slick takes.  His quick handles and ability to maneuver through tight quarters is so impressive.  Drained an array of threes throughout the two games pulling up on a dime doing so.  Showed explosion in the open floor dunking it on several occasions playing off his defensive intensity consistently picking the pocket of his opponent and taking it the other way for scores.  Mixed in some drive and kick passes to shooters as well.  The high-major prospect looked every bit the part in Indy!

Kenwood 6’8” power forward
