Prep Hoops was at the Pangos All-Midwest Frosh/Soph Camp from start to finish! Now we dive into an examination of the prospects at the event. Here is Pangos: Illinois Top 2025 Post Prospects!
Aleks Alston Aleks Alston 6'9" | PF Kenwood | 2025 State IL (Kenwood)
Alston lived up to his status as a top 5 prospect in the 2025 class. The point-power forward is such a skilled player that can push it off the defensive glass, pass it with so much flair, and bomb in deep threes. At 6’9” he has tremendous size and is starting to reel in the mid-major and high-major offers already.
Jaylen Ingram Jaylen Ingram 6'6" Hillcrest | 2025 IL (Hillcrest)
Huge fan of the upside that this 6’7” center brings to the table. He was one of the best post defenders we saw at the camp blocking shots and walling up inside. Great rebounder in and out of his area with his long arms and mobility. Offensively he rim runs getting up and down the floor with ease and is a great dive threat dunking at the hoop. Should be next star post for Hillcrest.
George Richardson (DePaul Prep)
This 6’5” power forward from Chicago Catholic League power DePaul Prep was pretty fluid getting up and down the floor in transition for scores in the open floor. Should provide depth for the program up front over the next several years.
Keyshawn Barfield Keyshawn Barfield 6'8" | C Lincoln Park | 2025 State IL (Lincoln Park)
The Lincoln Park 6’9” five man is a thick bodied center Showed flashes as an area rebounder and sealing on the block. Not much of a vertical athlete at this stage of the process.
Alex Vincent (OPRF)
Another big man that has legit size at 6’9” with a bulky frame. Solid area rebounder that snatched them in the paint. The up and down game didn’t really play to his strengths as more of a low-post scorer.
Daniel Pauliukonis Daniel Pauliukonis 6'8" | SF Benet Academy | 2025 State IL (Benet)
Long and thin 6’6” power forward that wasn’t quite as effective in this setting as he was when we saw him at the PHI Top 250. But did flash his mid-range shot making and mobility finishing around the hoop.
TJ Pettigrew (Fenwick)
It was the best we have seen from this 6’5” post. Skilled 4/5 that rebounds well in his area and is a solid passer. We came away impressed with his feathery jump shooting from mid-range which he also knocked in from the corner for a three on one occasion.
