Schanowski might be the hottest name in the state after the summer.

Kotecki struggled as a junior at St. Ignatius, but regained his stock this summer especially when we saw him in Indy for the Grit Region Finals with Fundamental U. Can stretch the floor with his shooting, but what impressed us was his improved toughness putting it on the deck and rebounding.

Hull is making the move to Illinois from Tennessee. Originally from Illinois he is back and going to Bolingbrook for his senior campaign. Long and athletic five man that brings potential as a rim runner, dive threat, defender, and rebounder. He will make Bolingbrook’s front line even better.
Current Ranking: #50

We saw the best basketball of TVG’s career with his play during the early part of July. With Hoops 4 Health especially in Atlanta he was excellent scoring on the block playing strong around the hoop with his added upper body strength. Rebounded in traffic and knocked in spot up jumpers.

Every time we saw Brown his stock went up in July. The Marshall five man is an old school back to the basket center that anchors down low and goes to work with his footwork and touch scoring at a high level. Very good area rebounder snatching them in traffic and protects the rim.

Boone elevated his stock with Full Package by showcasing his improved consistency as a spot up three point shooter. The big man was a major shooting threat from three that also ran the floor and rebounded well in traffic all July.

Super long and thin power forward that can really shoot the ball from distance. He has always been able to do this as a spot up guy. The power forward opened eyes with a poster slam at the finals and then swatted everything in site at The Last Dance!
