 All Inclusive Illinois,N.W. Indiana & Southern Wisconsin Top 175 Class 2025

This is the  2025 class list and this is the beginning stages. There are many kids who deserve to be on this list but I haven’t seen them thus far, there are also several prospects who could be a little higher on the list or a little lower but this is an early stage for the class. Jrhoopselite will be in constant contact this fall & Winter. The list is designed for promotion of our youth and designed to motivate kids, there are a lot of kids at this level that I have not seen yet and I will not include on the list until I have actually seen them play. I will be out at various tournaments and school games through out the  winter. Again I want kids to understand that you are preparing yourself for down the line, continue to work and get better,  Again if your name is not on the list it maybe an oversight or I have not have seen you play in person. Feel free to give me a call or text sometimes I omit a kids name while in the process of moving them up or down on list by mistake. Again I will say, use for motivation and keep working. Kids get better at different stages. If you are playing somewhere and want me to come check you out feel free to text or DM me. I’m out 5 of 7 days looking at kids all over. Again I do not put a kid on the list until I have seen them.Thanks & God BlessRicky Moore 773 383-0972                Emergency Updated 10 Names will be added 6/10 after insuring correct spelling6/15/2019

Promising Prospect #34

” He Makes It Look Easy!!!”

Tavonta Jackson

Tavonta ” Tae ” Jackson  remember the name is a long 6/2 combo guard that can do just about everything imaginable on the court, I’ve witnessed young fella beat teams by himself that were stacked from top too bottom and he willed his teammates to victory, I’ve seen young fella spoon feeding teammates with no looks like high D1 kids, I’ve watched young fella be box and 1 and all kind of trick defenses and  still manage to score 20 in a half and lead his team to victory, all while Making It Look Too Easy!!!! Young Fella is taller than most players this grade and many have put him on the wing or down low at times in his young career, but I look at young fella and see some Penny Hardaway and Tracy Mcgrady in him, a big guard who can facilitate, make plays for others and shoot the mid-range over the smaller guards. Young Fella is the type of player that some will say “he doesn’t  play hard enough, I say naw ” He Makes It Look Too Easy!!” Yes There are things he can work on like defensive principals and on ball defense but what 8th grade doesn’t  have things to work on. I know what  he does have, a skill set. Yep!! catch the ball at half court line two dribble, right spin off defender pull-up at elbow Swish!, catch in corner defender runs out, wrap around dribble, another two defenders step up he splits both  then goes up on defender and slaps board for Bucket Gotcha!!, has the little guard on his hip walks him to free-throw line and raises up!!! ” Attention Attention. ” We Have Prospect!!!” Living in Central Illinois not as many people are up on young fella yet but believe me they will be, I’ve been around this game a while and young fella is possibly the best prospect coming out of middle school in Springfield since Larry Austin( D1 College Player) and you can bet all the high school coaches are salivating at the thought of him playing in their program. Young Fella is 1 of 3 players in the class I would want the ball in their hands with game on the line in the class. Tae!! is one of those dudes!!! He is fearless and has been competing against the best for years an We at Jr Hoops Elite have young fella as our number #2 Rated Prospect Class Of 2023. We look forward to seeing young fella compete Feb 23rd @ The Top Prospect Showcase where many of the best players in the Midwest will be in attendance. We would like to acknowledge young fella as our Promising Prospect #34 ” He Makes It Look Easy!!!”

Jr Hoops Elite Would like To Congratulate USA In

 

 Patrick Baldwin Jr. The Current Number 1 Player In The Nation(ESPN)

Promising Prospect # 29

“Next Level”

14699 (2)

When I see a player like this he makes me shake my head and say “WOW!!!” I’ve been around many players, high level college and N.B.A. whom I’ve seen when they were in Middle School  and it’s hard to remember one being as polished at this stage as young Patrick Baldwin Jr. Here is a 6ft 5 plus wing that has incredible talent. He does so many things that college players are doing now. I’ve witnessed young fella play in the mid-post like a pro, reverse pivot step back off the glass bucket!!! MJ STYLE, curl the screen, catch and shoot from 24ft. swish!!! looking like Klay Thompson. bringing the ball up the court on smaller defender he gets to his spot and raises over the player like “he’s a chair in a drill !!! Shaun Livingston, All I can think is this kid is so far ahead of everybody in his class with his skill set and understanding of the game he’s Next Level!!! When you look at Patrick it’s easy for me  to imagine him putting up impressive stats in College at a high level in a few years. He is the one kid who has the size that equates to the position(sg/sf) he projects in College right now. While young fella has all the tools and skills, there are some who will mistake his skill set and poise and say he needs to get that “so called dog in him” too them I say “you are confused the kids usually being called the dog are more often than not the ones whose skill set is just that high motor, high energy, grit and grime”. It’s crazy how that is so misinterpreted. I tell people all the time ” you want the kid with the skill and game !!!” all that, he is a dog and plays hard-nose wears off quickly after middle school. Young Fella is “The Truth!!!” He has a sweet stroke and if there are 2 better shooters in his class I haven’t seen them, I’ve watched games where he knocked down 3 of 4 or 4 of 5 like they were free-throws and with his size and high release, it’s like the defenders were helpless. The thing that also impresses me about young fella is he is such a quality kid, he never comes off as the ” I’m a superstar kid” He is all about his teammates and he is always looking for ways to improve, spending countless hours in the gym. Add to that he is an honor roll student and does community service and you have one well rounded young man. Hey High School coach be ready to move somebody over, you have a 4 year starting wing coming in the door day 1 no need to play around he will be ready. Patrick Baldwin Jr. is JrhoopsElite #1 rated prospect in 2021 class, and we would like to acknowledge him as our Promising Prospect “Next Level”  The Top Prospect Showcase is Feb 25th and we look forward to watching many of the top players in the Midwest.

Khalil Whitney – Another Kid who when we mentioned early in middle school people laughed and said he hasn’t played anywhere, Yep Well just as we suspected the young kid from the 60624, has evolved just like we thought A top 5 player in The Country( ESPN)and still has that same humble and hungry attitude. Congrats To one of the originals Jr Hoops Elite Prospects. We Love Ya Kid and Congratulations.

WHAT AN UPSIDE!!!

                                       Promising Prospect # 12

K Whit
Khalil Whitney

Sometimes you see a kid and say “boy oh boy If I had him”. Well there is one kid walking around the Chicago’s Westside and he keeps me making that statement. His name is Khalil Whitney he is the 6/4 wing whom just recently graduated from Gregory Elementary. I have known Khalil and seen him play for more than 3 years. I have witnessed his progression through hard work and effort. Young fella is also one of the highest character kids you will find at his age and takes nothing for granted. I’ve witnessed Khalil dominate games going coast to coast and dunking over his opponents showing things on the floor that make your jaw drop, I’ve witnessed him struggle in games trying to show his versatility, but what surprises me the most is that he is the same kid no matter how he played. He shows a maturity that is well beyond his years and he is very humble. Here is a kid who is progressively getting better by leaps and bounds, he is also a gym rat and wants to learn. His size and athleticism already equate to someone high major colleges will be all over in the next few years. Not many kids combine the size, strength, athletic ability, will to get better and the genetic pool that Khalil possesses. When someone says a kid has Upside this is what they are talking about. Imagine him in a few years with a few more inches” “That’s Scary”, if that happens watch-out. Young fella has steadily been climbing the rankings ever since they were released last winter. Khalil Whitney is currently Jrhoopselite # 4 prospect of 2019 and he has the Upside and Potential to be the best when it’s all said and done. We look forward to seeing Khalil at the faboulus freshmen showcase Aug. 15th and monitoring him through-out high school career as we are formulating player profiles this coming spring for college coaches. Khalil Whitney “boy oh boy” WHAT AN UPSIDE!!!!!! You are Promising Prospect # 12.

Thanks,

Adam Miller ESPN Top 20 player In The Nation, Was first Noticed Here And Proclaimed Best Player In The State Here As a 7th entering 8th grader from a small town in Central Illinois. People said we were crazy. Well it doesn’t seem that way now. Congrats on The USA Camp Invite. One Of Jr Hoops Elites Personal Favorites As We Knew He Had That Something In him.

Promising Prospect # 21

A MILLER
ADAM MILLER

“A STAR IS RISING”

There is a young player who is making quite a statement with his game over the past year and many need to get used to hearing how promising of a prospect young fella is. Adam Miller is showing that he clearly has established himself an elite prospect and seems to constantly be getting better and better A STAR IS RISING!!!!. This silky smooth guard has that “IT FACTOR” about him. He is the kid who takes the challenge of wanting to get better each and every time he steps on the court. A few months ago Adam came to the Top Prospect Showcase and put on a show, showing every imaginable skill and intangible. He was completely unstoppable and left JrhoopsElite prospect the class of 2020. Since then young fella has done nothing to dispel that, in fact he is creating more of a separation. A couple of weekends ago I witnessed young fella playing 15U with the Mac Irvin Fire at NY2LA and he played well, then this past weekend I watched young fella playing at the Toi Baylor tournament in Romeoville and not only did I watch young fella playing up in age play well, I saw him actually taking over for stretches in close games. His team down 1 in second half he nails a long three, then makes a steal and feeds the ultra- athletic combo guard Markeese Jacobs for a layup, on defense he grabs a long rebound, dribbles up court in which he splits defenders and riffles a no look cross court pass to big Spence Boeheim for a lay-in, then follows that up with a basket in traffic. Yep!!  just like that an 8 point lead and the game never got any closer. I’ve been around a lot of young players and there is just something about young Adam that says special!! He lives in Peoria, Illinois and many in the State were not aware of just how good he is. That’s probably a good thing, he didn’t get all the attention early and it seems to have kept him hungry and even more determined. Being from the Central part of the State there are many players who do not get as much attention as some of the Chicagoland Area. Having said that young fella is making a case for JrhoopsElite to get down that way more often. Adam has represented himself quite well in all fashions. Having sat down and talked with young fella a couple of times he one class young man, who is humble and appreciative of everything he seems to take  nothing for granted A STAR IS RISING!!!. I look forward to watching young Adam for years to come and would like to acknowledge him as a Promising Prospect.

Thanks,

Ricky Moore 773 383-0972

Andre Casey Jr. Congrats To Our Number 1 rated player this past graduating class, Here Is what we said about him as a 7th grader, A respectful young kid who we think the world of and root for.

” A Problem Causer “

Andre Casey Jr.

Somebody is walking around the Chicagoland Area, that is getting better and better by leaps and bounds. Drop Step BasketMid-Range Jump Shot Basket, On the break watch ya head a Power Dunk Basket, beat your man off the dribble Block Shot Against The Glass, uh oh young fella is  “A Problem Causer” here is a kid  whom people thought would be good in a few years just last year. Well everybody young fella  is ahead of the curve and becoming dominant right now. While I tell people the little guards are always better at an very early age, they have the ball in their hands, they dribble in the basement and hone ball handling skills early, they are quicker at understanding their bodies they look more fluent and polished. The bigs do not have all the early luxuries, but boy do they have all the potential and upside. Introducing Andre Casey Jr a player who has taken his game from a support player who can protect the rim into a feature player who shows all the skills of a future All- State and Division 1 player. I witnessed young fella a couple of weeks ago score 20 plus several games in a row, showing explosiveness to the rim and knocking down the perimeter shot, then this past weekend in the Championship Game at Chicago Jam-Fest I witnessed young fella score 27 being physical and finishing through contact at the rim and consistently knocking down contested jump-shots under pressure in leading his team to the victory and earning MVP. Young Fella is impressive and what makes things even scarier is that “AJ” upside and potential are starting to surface, he is not done growing and still getting use to his body, along with getting better his game and skills are getting smoother. Young Fella is now taking one step and dunking it like kids 4 years his superior, add the fact that young fella is  a great kid whom has always been respectable, polite and very coach-able and you now have the formula for something down the line that’s definitely “Problem Causer” While Jrhoopselite has Andre Casey Jr. as our #2 rated prospect in the class of 2022 he is one of several who has a chance to be special down the line and a kid whom I get 5-10 calls per week inquiring about. We would like to acknowledge Andre Casey Jr. As our Promising Prospect #31 ” A Problem Causer”

“Game Recognize Game”

Lamont Hamilton 2026

Lamont Hamilton 2026- Yes Indeed!!!! make no mistake about it, we have one of those young prospects who we figure to be talking about for years to come. The attacking pg who is virtually unstoppable at getting where he wants on the court Lamont Hamilton AKA ” Doodie” is a problem for opposing teams, We watched young fella shred teams last weekend in route to leading his team to the Jr Hoops Elite Nationals as he was M.V.P. of the 10U division. Young Fella showed every skill imaginable, he knocked the outside shot down a few times, he was slicing and dicing his way to the basket and spoon feeding his teammates, he showing the ability to lead, his vision and awareness was off the charts for his age as he was making length of the floor passes that kids 3 years his superior have a hard time making or even seeing for that matter and ” Nooooooobody Could Stay In Front Of Him Of The Dribble” Beware Racine Wisconsin Got “One Of Them Dudes”. Our class 2026 rankings do not come out until next year and as we see it right now young fella is right up there with the elite in the Midwest in his class no doubt about it. Young Fella plays with a swagger and a very competitive edge we look forward too monitoring ” Doodie for years to come, we also look forward to seeing young fella at the Young Player Showcase Aug 11th. where many of the talented players in the Midwest will be in attendance, I know young fella licking his chops right now.

Thanks,
