The class of 2028 is starting to become one of my favorite classes. This class is full of skilled high-IQ players at every position. After getting a chance this spring to watch these young men here are some of the slept-on kids who can play on any team and make a instant impact
Josiah Hall – Geek Squad Chicago IL “JOJO” is a matchup problem who can play all 5 positions on the offensive end with a nice touch around the basket. JOJO can also stretch out bigs by knocking down open jump shots and getting to the basket drawing fouls. With the ability to put the ball on the ground after a defensive rebound and make high IQ plays. Coach Ro and Geek Squad 2028 can play with anybody
Ethan Vahl – Illinois Flight Aurora IL Ethan is a 2 Way Sharpshooter that can get any shot he wants and will guard players 94 feet. A willing passer who can control the pace and get teammates involved is the stand-out part of his game. The ability to space the floor and consistently knock down shots from downtown made Ethan stand out at War for the North playing with Illinois Flight 2028.
Derrick Caldwell Jr – Chicago Demons Oak Park IL DJ is a super long wing that plays the passing lanes to get the demons off and running. Growing almost two feet in the last year has made the game a lot easier for Dj. With the ability to shoot over small guards and stretch out bigs, DJ is a silent killer who makes an impact on the game even if he is not scoring the ball.
Terrence Smith – Flames Chicago IL TJ is a shifty 2 Way Playmaker who can get to the basket at any time he wants and will pick your pocket faster than a thief on the Red Line. This summer TJ has developed a consistent jump shot with also the ability to shoot off the dribble which has taken his game to another level.

Alvin Robinson – Gametime Athletics Chicago IL Big AL is a Glass Cleaning Stretch on both ends of the floor that can finish around the rim that takes up space. With the ability to shoot the ball I have seen this young man knock down several big shots when his team needed him most. Big AL will be a match-up problem to any big that is sticking him or any guard that gets switched off on him.
