In the talent rich state of Illinois, there always seems to be players that fly under the radar. While some of these players do have some good college interest, they still remain undervalued and under the radar. Here are just some of the seniors in Illinois that could be great collegiate players but remain under recruited. 

Tyler Ford – 2022 – G – Legal Prep

The wing guard is one of the more under recruited players in all of Chicago that will help a college team win games down the line. He is a powerful wing that can just bully defenders and is very effective getting to the basket and finishing amongst big men as well to creating in the mid-range. Ford plays with good toughness and aggressiveness to makes his presence felt in many ways. He has guard skills but with all his tools can also do the dirty work of hitting the glass and defending multiple positions. 

Aima Igiehon – 2022 – F – Wheeling High School

Igiehon plays with a tremendous motor to always be making an impact on the floor. He stands at 6’3” but plays much bigger with his energy and length. With all his tools the wing forward has the ability to defend nearly anyone on the floor well. He can play big to defend inside but moves still moves well to defend out on the perimeter too. On the other end he can put the ball on the floor as well to being able to score tough buckets inside. 

Conrad Luczynski – 2022 – C – Bartlett High School

While you rarely ever see a 7’2” high schooler under the radar, that’s what happening with Luczynski. Not only does he stand north of seven feet, but he has some game, high IQ, and a big motor. He has the game you would expect from someone his size scoring around the paint, hitting the glass and protecting the rim but there is more to him. He has good feel to his game reading the defense and passing out of the paint effectively as well to continuously running the floor hard both ways and having good touch around the bucket. Even with his size and ability, he still does not have a scholarship offer to his name but don’t be surprised if that changes soon.   

Lane McVicar – 2022 – G – DeKalb High School

The 6’5” wing guard had a big junior season for a very good DeKalb team and then continued that level of play with M14. McVicar is a skilled scorer who can get it done in a variety of ways. He shoots it very well from the perimeter but can also make plays off the dribble getting to the rim as well to creating in the mid-range. Expect a big season out of him and for him to be one of the more talked about seniors in the area. 

Jordan Streeter – 2022 – G/F – Whitney Young High School

Streeter is one of the better scoring wings around. He is a tough slashing wing that is incredibly difficult to stop once he gets going to the basket. He has good size at 6’6”, athleticism, and moves well with the ball. All spring and summer Streeter showed the ability to score in bunches in transition and half court while playing with the Illinois Jaguars.
