With the Illinois high school basketball season just one day away, here are a handful of unsigned sleepers heading into their senior campaign.
Lynch is true power forward with a strong frame and has a skillset that should yield a productive small college career. He crashes the boards hard, is a reliable spot up shooter, and plays well in pick and roll where he is a threat as a roller or shooter. Lynch is seeking high academic schools and currently holds athletic offers from Lawrence, DePauw, and Augustana.
Williams is an under the radar wing who should be gaining more college interest. He has good positional size as a wing guard and has a smooth offensive game. Williams has great ability as a catch and shoot threat and also shows nice touch at the rim attacking the second line of defense. He has received junior college interest so far and is bound to be on more radars soon.
Barnes is a walking highlight reel who shows a ton of potential. A true hidden gem in small town Illinois, he has a high ceiling as a raw athlete. Barnes will likely need time for skill development but shows promise as an electric wing who has a quick first step and emerging shooting range. He currently holds offers from Kirkwood CC and Spoon River CC.
Senica is a strong and versatile forward who uses his size to get to his spots on the court. He is a sneaky explosive athlete who plays above the rim consistently. Senica is a capable three point shooter with the ability to create his own shot off the catch. He currently holds athletic offers from Dubuque and Millikin.
A well rounded wing guard, Tatum is poised for a big senior season at Decatur MacArthur. He can fill it up from three with range and can impact the game without scoring. Tatum currently holds an athletic offer from Culver Stockton and plans to visit Elmhurst soon.
Hailing from Midland, here is another small school gem. Faulkner is the ultimate small school 3 and D wing who will have a great college career. He is a high IQ wing who is a capable shot maker at all 3 levels and is active on both sides of the ball. Faulkner currently holds athletic offers from North Central and Loras.
