We dive into the top ranked shooting guards and small forwards in the sophomore class here!
Melvin Bell Melvin Bell 6'4" | SG St. Rita | 2025 State IL (St. Rita)
Current Ranking: #2
Bell has been the top wing prospect in this class since they stepped foot in high school. The shooting guard from St. Rita is coming off an injury where he was out most of the grassroots circuit and the first half of the high school season. He isn’t 100% yet but wings like him with his size for position, three level scoring ability, and killer instincts are rare. High-major prospect that we feel will prove that once again this summer.
Antonio Munoz Antonio Munoz 6'6" | SF Whitney Young | 2025 State IL (Whitney Young)
Current Ranking: #3
Munoz is a high level athlete with great physical tools. He is playing a bit out of position at times for the Dolphins as the CPS power lost a lot of size and has used him inside more. Showcased he can rebound the ball and be effective as a versatile defender. Munoz won the MVP at the Prep Hoops Top 250 Camp back in the fall putting on a highlight show above the rim. High-major prospect.
Phoenix Gill Phoenix Gill 6'2" | SG St. Ignatius | 2025 State IL (St. Ignatius)
Current Ranking: #4
Gill was a highly regarded prospect before even playing meaningful minutes in a high school game. He has put together a solid sophomore campaign getting better each and every time out for St. Ignatius. Silky smooth scoring guard that has shown creativity with his handles off the bounce with a variety of finishing moves. Clean looking jumper that he hits pulling up and from three off the catch.
Bradley Longcor Bradley Longcor 6'3" | SG Quincy | 2025 State IL (Quincy)
Current Ranking: #6
Longcor continues to produce for a young and talented Quincy squad. The sophomore shooting guard is lights out as a three point threat especially off the catch. Such a effortless stroke. Has showed he is more than just a shooter using his handles to get through defenders on slick drives, solid passer as a secondary ball handler, and is an active defender in the backcourt.
Al Brooks (Hansberry)
Current Ranking: #9
Brooks has been a standout early in the season for a CPS school that many had never heard of. He caught our scouts eye during the Thanksgiving tournaments and continued the rest of the first half. Size for position at 6’6” with a good frame. Puts up monster rebounding numbers for a wing. Downhill slasher that gets to the rim with power finishing with explosion. Sound looking pull up game.
Elijah Lovemore Elijah Lovemore 6'2" | SG Bloom | 2025 State IL (Bloom)
Current Ranking: #12
Lovemore is a 6’3” shooting guard that can also play some on the ball when needed. Legit three level scorer that has burst off the bounce getting downhill where he converts with either hand at the cup. Good defender and rebounder.
Terrence Smith Terrence Smith 6'4" | SF West Aurora | 2025 State IL (West Aurora)
Current Ranking: #13
Long and lanky small forward with plus athleticism. Wiry wing might end up playing wide out in college on the gridiron, but continues to show a lot of tools to like on the hardwood. Excels in transition as a high flying finisher. Gets on the offensive glass and cuts well off the ball. Potential to be a good wing defender.
Ian Miletic Ian Miletic 6'6" | SF Rolling Meadows | 2025 State IL (Rolling Meadows)
Current Ranking: #14
Highly skilled point-forward type prospect. Miletic can play both on and off the ball. With Christie he is mostly off the ball during high school and has shown to be effective as a spot up shooter and getting loose in transition. We really are intrigued with the ball in his hands though as a passer with feel and flair.
