We have compiled our list and here is how it plays out…

VAC365-TPOSBuilding Men & Women via Athletics

1. MORGAN PARK: Phenom Nimari Burnett moved to California, but the Mustangs are still loaded. They have the state’s best senior, Ayo Dosunmu, and the best sophomore, Peoria Manual transfer Adam Miller. Tamell Pearson, a 6-9 senior, had a terrific summer and will be the primary post threat.

2. FENWICK: Sophomore DJ Steward was a sensation last season. He’s back and surrounded by a focused, talented group of seniors: AJ Nixon, Billy Bruce, 6-4 Mike O’Laughlin and Sam Daniels. Junior Damari Nixon, a 6-1 guard, had an excellent summer. Size could be an issue, but expect the Friars to mount a serious challenge for the Class 4A title.

3. BOLINGBROOK: Junior Tyler Cochran was one of the big eye-openers on the summer circuit. He’s part of an impressive guard trio including junior Joseph Yesufu and senior Kaleb Thornton. The Raiders lost a lot of size and scoring. They’ll be fast and confident but will need to find rebounding.

4. ST. RITA: The Mustangs don’t have a breakout superstar, but they have all the right pieces. Senior guard and leading scorer Jordan Matthews returns. Sophomore guard Joel Watts can play and there is plenty of size with 6-6 Jeremiah Oden, 6-8 Cam Bartman and 6-5 Landen Gladney.

5. WEST AURORA: Most everyone returns from team that lost to Bolingbrook in the sectional semifinals last season. Camron Donatlan is a four-year varsity star, 6-4 senior Jared Crutcher is underrated. Junior point guard Traevon Brown transferred in from East Aurora and will be a major contributor.

BONUS: Lincoln-Way East, Leo, Bloom, Hillcrest, Joliet Central and Joliet West.
