Aaron Simpson, North Chicago's high-scoring guard, committed to coach Tim Jankovich and Illinois State on Wednesday. The 5-11 senior is the No. 6 ranked player in the Hoops Report's Class of 2012 player rankings.

Last season, Simpson led North Chicago to the Class 3A semifinals after the Warhawks finished 12-13 in the regular season. North Chicago fell to Centralia in the state semifinals and then lost to Brooks in the third-place game to finish the year 17-15. Simpson, an AP second-team Class 3A all-state selection last season, averaged 22.5 points and 3.9 assists a game.

Simpson's game has always been about putting the ball in the hole with impressive offensive abilities. He slashes to the basket, makes shots from the perimeter and converts runners and floaters. A year ago he knocked down 66 three-pointers.

Simpson will join a Redbird recruiting class that will feature Normal Community guard Anthony Beane, who is the son of Illinois State assistant coach Anthony Beane, Sr.

Hey Joe why did he choose that school I wonder if grades played a role

Beane and Simpson is a nice combo for ISU. NIU, Loyola and ISU are doing well on paper. Hopefully it translates to the court.
