Here's the first group of season previews. Follow me on Twitter @michaelsobrien for more.
ACE Tech: Athletic, but not much size. 5 guys back that played a lot last year. Watch for Julian Robertson, Joshua Bruce and Corey Holbrook.
ACT Charter: Your guess is as good as mine. No one answers the phone at the school, they were 1-20 last season, 0-9 in the Red West.
Addison Trail: Lost 9 seniors. Will be guard heavy, led by Ty Horvath, Armond Tigo and Denny Martinez. Soph James Capilo has potential.
Ag. Science: Coach Craig Adams says it will be a rough year. "500 if we're lucky" 5-3 soph Roy Barnes and 5-9 jr Afric Bussell lead the way
Alden-Hebron: Young core back with jrs Shane Engelbrecht, Alex Arthur and so. Bryce Lalor. Could be slightly better than last season's 6-22.
Amundsen: Lost everything, starting over. Weak soph class, will be relying on freshmen. Best players are Vince Rivera and Humberto Valentin.
Andrew: Sleeper team to watch, thanks to the 3 Adekoya brothers, all starters. Jubrill (6-4 soph), the youngest, is a high-major prospect.
Antioch: Brighter year ahead. True PG in 6-4 Mike Barakat and 6-4 jr Karl Nettgen is developing into a double-double machine.
Argo: Few noticed that they knocked off Vocational in the playoffs last season. Morris Woods and Godfrey Brown are gone. Rebuilding year.
ASA: Never seen them play, never heard a thing about them, no one responding to my calls. Doubtful that the next Anthony Davis lurks here.
Aurora Central: Two 6-4 transfers provide size, sr. guard Ryan Herald returns. Coach Nathan Drye expects them to be good by playoff time.
Aurora Christian: Dean Danos transferred in from Richards. Expectations are high with four players back from last season's 9-17 team.
Austin: Should be interesting with two good players back, sr Taron Jennings and jr Desmond Bryant.
