One Illinois point guard who has burst onto the scene throughout the past few months has been Brayden Fagbemi. After playing in a limited role during his junior season at Benet Academy (IL), he was able to showcase all of his talents throughout the spring and summer while playing with Illinois Attack. 

Fagbemi continuously proved his dynamic playmaking ability during his time with the Illinois Attack with his ability to both score and distribute the ball. A true floor general who is strong with the ball in his hands and has a great ability to get to his spots in addition to his vision and passing ability. “I refuse to be outworked or outplayed by any point guard I face. I also take pride in making my teammates better and doing whatever is needed of me to win.” he said about his game and what he can offer to a college program.   

All his abilities were fully on display at the Best of the South Tournament in Atlanta during the July live period. He was a key piece of helping Illinois Attack reach the semifinals of the 17U championships of the platinum bracket. His stock greatly grew with his play in wins over a few strong programs including Florida Pro Select, Team Haliburton, 94 Feet Elite, and Wisconsin Swing. 

With his play he has been able to attract the interest from programs at all levels. Much of his attention has been from high academic division three programs including DePauw, Johns Hopkins, Macalester, MIT, University of Chicago, and others. While has not taken any visits, he has a few set up for this month including Johns Hopkins, Swarthmore, and MIT. 

Whether if be from high academic division three programs or scholarship level schools, look for Fagbemi to continue to pick up more interest during his upcoming senior season at Benet.
