The high school season is rolling along and talented prospects are already delivering at a high level.  The MSL East is one of those areas in Illinois that has some nice talent on the hardwood night in and night out.  Here’s a quick look at five prospects in the MSL East to take note of this season…

Christie is one of the most highly sought after recruits in the nation. Max is able to carry the load for his Mustangs on offense. Christie is one of the smoothest players in the country and can flip the switch with relative ease. His size and offensive skill set will make the NBA come calling if everything works out as planned. Christie is being recruited by the likes of Duke, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and many more.

2021 - 6’7 - HERSEY - F - BEN RANDALL
Randall is one of the most unknown players in Illinois. The junior played at the sophomore level last season at 6'3 but had a growth spurt this summer which leaves him at 6’7. Randall boasts a 6’9 wingspan and has the ability to jump out of the gym. Ben has a smooth jumper and is willing to pull it up off the dribble. He makes his moves out on the wing and can find his way to the rim with ferocity. Expect Randall to create some waves in recruiting circles after his season is complete. 

2021 - 6’4 - HERSEY - G - ETHAN ROBERTS
Roberts transferred in from Tennessee this summer. He is a great playmaker that has the ability to score the ball at a high rate. Roberts has a great pull up jumper and can create for his teammates as well. His elite court vision allows him to dissect opposing defenses. Expect Ivy Leagues to come calling after the 2019-20 season.

Terrell burst onto the scene this summer playing for Team RWA and showed his smooth lefty stroke. Jaden is a sneaky athlete that continues to grow, I expect Terrell to fill out into a LM D1 prospect if he continues to work.

2022 - 6’5 - BUFFALO GROVE - G - KAM CRAFT
Craft is one of the most talented scorers in Illinois and he's only a sophomore! Craft shows an elite stroke coming off of screens and has a quick trigger to fill it up from deep. Craft is starting to become more comfortable getting downhill and will continue to show he is a division one prospect as the year goes on.
