Simpson Elite Media was able to head up to Schaumburg Greater Purpose facility to watch the Aayouleagues Fall League. I was able to capture some raw footage and assess players as the game went on. There were a lot of kids with potential and talent but these young talents stood out to me the most.
Glenbrook South High School
Anestis Hadjistamoulou 2025
Anestis is considered to be one of the top sophomores in the state of Illinois and he did not disappoint as his team fell short but he was still able to showcase his skills and IQ level. The 6-foot-0 combo guard show great poise and is 3 steps ahead of the next play. His ball handling ability is what stands out the most, his between cross is his patent move that almost every time shift defenders that allow him direct line drives to the rim. He can score from all 3 levels, he can create off the bounce for others, and he is a willing defender.
Hudson Fuller 2025
Smooth lefty, quick first step, intelligent player, uses his size to his advantage to shoot over smaller guards, make tough shots, has a decent handle and create for others.
Notre Dame College Prep
Brady Sehlhorst 2025
Sehlhorst is a big athletic guard who is versatile on both sides of the ball, can guard 1 through 4 and is hard to guard when he's attacking down hill. His ability to shoot from the perimeter opens up driving lanes where he can be creative by scoring or making the right pass to an open teammate, with his length he can be a really good on ball defender if he wants to take his game to the next level.
Lake Park High School
Camden Cerese 2024
Kid is a ball player, his savvy ball handling was impressive to see, you can tell he has a great feel for the game, handles pressure really well, can shoot it off the bounce, his passing game is spectacular, he knows exactly where to throw the ball, does a great job at leading teammates to easy buckets, and can finish with either hand at the rim through contact, kid is tough.
Prospect High School
Ryan Lifton 2025
This kid has the ability to be really good if he continues to stay in the gym. He is a certified knock down shooter, he consistently makes open shots, has good poise with the ball - not easily rattled at a young age, moves and drive with a purpose, I'll keep my eye on him, the kid is a sleeper.
Frankie Poshnjari 2024
Tough, hard nose competitor, plays with a chip on his shoulder. This kid is fearless on the defensive end of the floor, has active hands, disruptive, knocks down timely threes, can create off the bounce, very physical and he moves well without ball.
Ben Schneider 2025
Young and up coming player, can score with best of them, he's really good in transition, make tough shots and can see the floor with best of them, has a nice float game, can score from all three levels, in this game Schneider got hot and drained 3 straight three pointers from deep, kid is going to be special.
Alex Georgakas 2023
Smooth with the ball, plays at his own space, can not be sped up, plays both sides of the ball, athletic, one play he had a chase down block off the glass in transition, very impressive. his change of paces what keeps the defense honest, he shoots the ball well but he shoots the ball better off the bounce.
Nick Popovic 2024
Solid size, can score the ball extremely well, has a solid three point shooter, shoots the ball well off the bounce, uses his body well in transition to create scoring opportunities, has active hands and play the passing lanes well, can be a solid defender if he put his mind to it. I expect him to have somewhat of a breakout season for Lake Zurich.
