Who are the top junior shooting guards and small forwards in the state’s 2023 class?  We examine that here!


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

Current Ranking: #3

Thomas bumps up to the top of the board after a completely dominant summer.  Out of all the highly ranked prospects at Riverside Brookfield he was the talk among college coaches.  At his size he can get his shot off from pretty much anywhere he wants.  Elite shooter from three that moves well without the ball to get open.  Also really like how he can post up smaller defenders and has a crafty in between game.


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

Current Ranking: #4

Christie also was excellent at RB.  He scorched the nets with his perimeter shooting.  Such a silky smooth two guard that loves to operate in the mid-range where he pulls up rising over the defense for crisp shots.  Creative ball handler that likes to create off the bounce and is a good secondary ball handler.


Daniel Johnson Daniel Johnson 6'6" | SF Whitney Young | 2023 State IL (Whitney Young)

Current Ranking: #8

The three and D wing is all the rage and that is exactly what this Whitney Young small forward brings
