Jaylen Drane Jaylen Drane 6'2" | PG Simeon | 2022 State IL (Simeon)

Current Ranking: #23

Drane is the top combo guard available heading into the season.  The wiry strong guard is an explosive ball handler that can win off the bounce and make plays in the open floor.  The jumper is improving.  Needs to show growth as a distributor and play consistent as a senior to garner more D1 interest.

Hall is a prospect that has everything in front of him as a senior after a really nice summer.  Exciting scoring guard that is a dynamic ball handler getting to the rack and has made strides as a playmaker.  With a monster senior season he should attract D1 interest.

Current Ranking: #36

The De La Salle combo guard had a very nice summer behind his multi level scoring ability.  Plays with speed and burst.  Quality defender that should find a home at the D2 level.
