Prep Hoops Live was one of the biggest events in the country this spring.  It featured tons of talent from Illinois and around the nation.  Here we dive into the Illinois rising junior prospects that impressed in Prep Hoops Live: Top Illinois 2023 Performers Pt 2!


Grant Fridley Grant Fridley 6'1" | PG Trenton Wesclin | 2023 State IL (Illinois Bears)

Fridley is a well rounded point guard that runs his team.  The Trenton Wesclin lead guard has an excellent feel for the game getting others involved.  High IQ guard that has a really good feel for putting others in position to succeed with his passing as he sees the floor very well both in transition and half court.  Smooth ball handler that gets where he needs on the floor to operate weaving through the defense.  D2s and low-majors should be monitoring early in the process.


Cole Peppenhorst Cole Peppenhorst 6'4" | PF Breese Mater Dei | 2023 State IL (Illinois Bears)

Peppenhorst is a long and rangy power forward that had a couple nice finishes around the hoop.  Projectable prospect with long term potential that needs to add strength.


Wyatt Hamson Wyatt Hamson 6'5" | PF Hamilton County | 2023 IL (Illinois Bears)

Hamson is a gritty five man with a strong frame.  Quality area rebounder that boxes out and snatches anything around
