There are currently five Illinois prospects in the Class of 2015 ranked among the top 100 prospects in the country, headed by Stevenson’s Jalen Brunson. A look at where each top prospect stacks up nationally heading into July.
◆ GLYNN WATSON, 5-11, PG, St. Joseph
Ranking overview: It’s easy to find wings. It’s not so easy to find bigs and point guards. That’s why Watson is valued as a top 100 player by the national experts –– he’s a true point guard and there aren’t many out there. While the likes of Nebraska, Purdue and Creighton have been hot and heavy for Watson, he will be closely watched this July by a host of high-major programs in need of a point guard.Glynn Watson
