Time to finish up our look at the top players around the area...
Tim Flowers, 6-5, Sr, Simeon: Tough, powerful, already a state champion. The heart and soul of Simeon.
Brandon McGee, 6-7, Sr, Crane: Made some amazing moves underneath the basket last season. Will have to develp more of a perimeter game to be successful in college. He should be a very exciting player to watch this season.
Josh Crittle, 6-8, Jr, Hales: Occasionally dominant, often average, this is the year he needs to start putting it together.
Mike Dunigan, 6-9, Jr, Farragut: Based on size alone, Dunigan has the most potential of any big man in the state.
Jawaan Nelson, 6-8, Jr, Bloom: Developing very nicely, will be a key part on one of the top teams in the state.
THE UP AND COMING
Isaiah Martin, 6-8, Sr, Morgan Park: Had a nice summer, hopefully new coach Paris Parham can inject some life into Morgan Park's regular season.
James Henley, 6-7, Sr, Lincoln Park: If Henley plays to his potential, the Lions could be unstoppable.
Dionte Gaskew, 6-6, Sr, Leo: Like his team, Gaskew underachieved a bit last year.
John Bagge, 6-7, Jr, Wheaton North: Came on strong last season, should begin opening some eyes.
Stephen Crane, 6-8, Sr, York: Al Biancalana has revived the Dukes, Crane has played a big part in that.
