While these five seniors have put up productive careers to this point, they are still behind in recognition of others. Expect this high school season for the following players to take the next step in their game and make a big name for themselves. 

Devin Cheaney – 2020 – PF – Batavia High School (IL)
While Cheaney is not going to wow anyone on the court, he an effective post that just makes plays on both ends of the court. At 6’8” with his strong frame, Cheaney is a defensive force in the paint. He plays tough defense in the post and has the ability to shut down opposing bigs with his size and toughness. On the opposite end, he has soft touch around the basket to score effectively in the paint. Cheaney has all the tools to have a big senior year. 

Aiden Flynn – 2020 – SF – Marquette University High School (WI)
After having a strong junior season and travel season, expect Flynn to take the next step and be one of the better forwards in the Milwaukee area. The high academic 6’5” wing forward is a solid all-around player that does plenty to contribute on the court. Offensively he is a skilled scorer going to the basket on cuts and drives. However, he contributes so much more with his stout defense, rebounding, high energy play, and just makes everyone around him better. 

Alec Millender – 2020 – PG – St. Rita High School (IL)
After a good summer, expect an even better winter out of Millender. A true high IQ point guard that distributes the basketball very well but can just as easily score it himself. With his quickness and strong handle, he does a very nice job of penetrating the defense often allowing himself to create for himself and teammates. Look for Millender to be one of the top point guards in the Chicago area this season. 

Jonathan Oden – 2020 – F – Legal Prep (IL)
The 6’7” athletic forward has an incredibly high ceiling. Oden is one of the better leapers around to be a big finisher around the basket and block shots at an incredibly high rate. One of the more athletic players around that gets off the floor incredibly quick. Plus, he is rounding out his game and showing he can do more and more elsewhere on the court. He has shown a nice developing ability to put the ball on the floor and drive to the basket. Fresh off a pair of NAIA offers, Oden has his best basketball ahead of him.  

Elijah Watson – 2020 – F – TF South High School (IL)
An athletic and versatile 6’7” forward with plenty of skill in his game. Not too many players with his height and strength that also have the amount of skills he does. Watson is very good off the dribble with his agility and handle, plus he has proven that he is a skilled passer. Moves very well with the basketball and is tough for other forwards to stick with him Now after rounding out his game, expect Watson to have a dominant season.
