One junior in Illinois that has flashed tremendous ability and continued to progress over the past year is Troy Cicero. This season at Romeoville High School the 6’1” point guard is averaging 18 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists per game. 

While Romeoville holds a 10-10 record, Cicero has helped them out to a 7-2 conference record. “The main goal for me is to win and be known as a winner,” the junior said about the season. “As captain and leader, I’m counted on to be consistent with my strong play and lead my team to wins.”

Currently, Cicero holds one division one offer. Back in August, Loyola-Maryland offered the junior. While that is his only offer, plenty of other programs are interested in him. Some of the schools that have been in touch with him include Gonzaga, Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, Tulsa, and Wyoming. 

Cicero is an aggressive point guard that excels on both ends of the floor. With his length, quickness, and instincts, he is a very tough on ball defender out on the perimeter with his intensity. On the opposite end, not only does he play well with the ball with his strong handle but is also a skilled scorer. Cicero shoots the ball well from the outside as well to being able to get to the basket. 

When looking ahead to the spring season, Cicero will once again be playing with the Illinois Wolves. “My main focus going into this season is to win at all costs and perform at the highest level on the biggest stage.”
