Prep Hoops had the Highland Shootout on lock this past weekend with coverage all day long and into this week.  Here we break down the prospects who played well in Highland Shootout: 2024 Illinois Standouts!


Cooper Koch Cooper Koch 6'7" | PF Peoria Notre Dame | 2024 State IL (Peoria Notre Dame)

Koch came into this game as the least well known of the top big men in their game against St. Rita.  Definitely showed some flashes of why colleges and scouts are so high on him even in a 6 point outing.  Skilled passer that made several great finds out of the post and in the high/low.  Spinning layup, got fouled on a hesi baseline take, and made a sweet Dirk one footed step back.  Needs to add strength and learn to play more physical, but the skill set is very intriguing!


Morez Johnson Morez Johnson 6'9" | PF St. Rita | 2024 State IL (St. Rita)

The Illini commit had a lot of southern Illinois fans excited to see him.  It wasn’t a dominant performance like we have seen at times this year, but he definitely managed to show what he has in his bag.  Flashed to the middle for a mid-range jumper, short jump hooks, hit a three, and flew in for rebounds.  Displayed
