The O’Fallon Shootout is one of the top events of the year in Illinois. Here we breakdown the top PGs/Combos at the event from Illinois.
Jalen Griffith Jalen Griffith 5'10" | PG Simeon | 2023 State IL (Simeon – 2023)
Griffith remains the top uncommitted guard in the state of Illinois. He is slated to take an official visit to Jacksonville next weekend. Shifty guard that wins off the bounce with his handles getting in the lane for spinning layups, runners, and hit a three as well. Creates for others with his dynamic passing getting his teammates involved including a great no look dime. He had 10 points (4-8 FG) and 4 assists. Low-majors are crazy for not offering this kid!
Jeremy Fears Jeremy Fears 6'1" | PG Joliet West | 2023 State #31 Nation IL (Joliet West – 2023 – Michigan State)
Fears put on a show in primetime! The Joliet West lead guard showed off his athleticism on both ends. Defensively he is a force high pointing passes, blocking shots, and using his lateral quickness. Offensively he controlled the contest with his high IQ, pick and roll game, along with great court vision. Hit several threes while also getting to the rim and free throw line going for 20 points (6-12 FG), 9 rebounds, and 4 dimes. Michigan State has a future star!
Jeremiah Fears Jeremiah Fears 6'2" | PG Joliet West | 2025 State IL (Joliet West – 2025)
The younger Fears brother recently moved up to the top spot in the 2025 rankings. It was not his best shooting night as he was 2-15 from the field, but he did still make impactful plays in the game. Got to the foul line where he was 7-8 from the charity stripe while recording 6 defensive rebounds pushing off them and notching 3 dimes.
Jaeden Rush Jaeden Rush 6'0" | PG O'Fallon | 2024 State IL (O’Fallon – 2024)
It was a solid weekend for Rush as the lead guard from O’Fallon was effective in both games we saw. Silky smooth ball handler that had several takes off the bounce getting to the basket with ease. Also shot it better than we had seen in the past from three knocking in quite a few from distance. Feel for the game and has passing flair. Firs tgame he had 11 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 dimes. Second game notched 11 points and 7 rebounds.
Chase Fisher (Bloomington Central Catholic – 2023)
Fisher played a key complimentary role for BCC in their contest taking Nashville to OT. The lead guard hit a pair of threes along with mixing in some stuff inside. The gritty guard had 12 points.
Rylan Hammer (Nashville – 2023)
Hammer was a key cog in the Hornets OT win on Friday night. The smaller point guard knocked down shots, hit some pull ups, and got to the line scoring 13 points (4-4 FG) (1-1 3 PT) (4-4 FT).
Mason Mosley (Belleville East – 2023)
Mosley is a steady floor general that runs his team getting others involved along with playing excellent defense on the perimeter. Finished with 6 points, 3 assists, and 2 steals. Should find a home at the small college level.
