Christian Meeks Christian Meeks 6'6" | SF Homewood Flossmoor | 2022 State IL (Homewood Flossmoor)

Current Ranking: #30

Meeks is one of the more productive senior big men in the Chicagoland area.  The four man plays with so much energy and tenacity every single time out on the floor.  Motor, motor, motor!  It never stops running especially on the boards where he is a force with his second jump.  At times it seems like he is playing volleyball on the boards.  Plus rebounder and versatile defender that brings major athleticism to the table.

 

Ethan Marlowe Ethan Marlowe 6'8" | PF St. Charles North | 2022 State IL (St. Charles North)

Current Ranking: #31

Marlowe had a great showing at the Pontiac Holiday Tournament.  The skilled four man was a consistent threat scoring on the low block with touch using either hand to get buckets.  Also has range on his shot to out beyond the three point arc.  Like the overall skill package here along with solid athleticism that flashes as a shot blocker defensively.
