Lake Forest Academy's Kyle Rowley, who is one of the top post players in the state from the class of 2009, finds himself in a can't lose situation. He is currently faced with the possibility of graduating from Lake Forest Academy this spring and thus becoming a 2008 recruit, or waiting another year and remaining as a 2009 prospect, knowing that in doing so increased scholarship offers are almost sure to come his way. We will give everybody one guess as to which direction Rowley is leaning in.

Let the record now show that after after defeating Whitney Young, Lincoln Park and Curie all within the course of just over a week, we are now officially on the North Lawndale bandwagon.

Nevertheless, it goes without saying that Head's commitment will have a huge impact in relation to the school that he chose.

No high school basketball player in Illinois has been under more constant scrutiny than Whitney Young's Marcus Jordan. Such is the case when you are the son of the greatest basketball player who has ever lived. Expectations become too high and often end up being unrealistic. After watching Jordan at the Proviso West Holiday Tournament, our message to the critics is quite simple--it is time to silence yourselves!
