The Transfers

There are always high profile transfers during the summer. Here's a look at the two that could have the biggest impact this season.

Josh Crittle from Timothy Christian to Hales Franciscan

Crittle, a 6-8 forward, had an up and down summer. He played very well at the Speice Tournament, but was disappointing at ABCD Camp. Just his size alone will be invaluable to the Spartans this season.

"I just needed better competition," Crittle said. "[Timothy Christian] didn't take the news too well, but I need to play in bigger games against faster players."

Michael Haynes from Corliss to Washington

Haynes, a 6-4 sophomore, will team up with junior DeAndre Liggins in an extremely talented frontcourt. But that's only if Haynes is ruled eligible by the Public League. Last season, any player that transferred from one Public League school to another had to sit out the season.

Other notable transfers:
Jon Rice from Neuqua Valley to Waubonsie Valley
Jelani Poston from Simeon to Boys To Men
Angel Garcia from Lake Forest Academy to East Central, Ind.
Glen Wallace from St. Joseph to North Lawndale

Don't Forget sophomore Matt Salter who transferred from St.Joes to Oak Park River Forest to play along star Junior Iman Shumpert. Matt Salter is one of the best sophomores in the state and one of the most offensively talented players regardless of class.

Sophmore star Diamond Taylor of St.joseph would kill Matt Salter anyday

Jerome Harris transferred to Collins from Bogan after a big season that was unexpected because he was suppose to carry that team his sophmore year.

Jerome Harris had transferred from Bogan to Collins. Harris is the #2 Sophmore in the state of Illinois and he is rated by most the #1 Point guard in the nation. and #7 overall." I transferred because I thinkl it was time to play under an organized coaching staff, one that will make me a better player and person". Coach Scofield said that Harris was being highly recruited by Michigan St., and Illinois only as a freshmen
