Class of 2007

Position: 1

Chicago Simeon

2006-2007 Class AA All-State (Player of the Year)

Clearly the stateís best player and the nationís top PG.  Rose led his team to a repeat state championship rather easily while averaging 18 points, 9 assists, and 8 rebounds.  He was one of the few players who didnít have to score to make his presence felt.  He is this seasonís MidStateHoops.com Class AA Player of the Year.

Verbally Committed: Memphis

2006-2007 Class AA All-State

The only player that brought legitimate arguments for player of the year.  Turner showed that he was more than a prospect this season.  With his newly found confidence, the future Buckeye took St. Joseph to the Super Sectional while averaging 21 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists.

Verbally Committed: Ohio State

Evan Turner
6'7" / 180
Class of 2007

Position: 3

St. Joseph
Illinois Wolves

Justin Bocot
6'4" / 175
Class of 2007

Position: 2

Bloomington
Ft. Sooy-No Limit

2006-2007 Class AA All-State

Bocot averaged 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists.  He led the Purple Raiders to a sectional title game where they received a heartbreaking 1 point loss at the hands of Lincoln.  Justin had some outbreak games this season, going for nearly 40 points on many occasions.  He proved to be the stateís best scoring package.

Verbally Committed: Southern Illinois

2006-2007 Class AA All-State

Though McCamey was somewhat overshadowed by Ohio State bound-Evan Turner, please donít underestimate his importance to the Hawks.  Alongside averaging 17 points and 5 rebounds, Demetri was on the passerís end of Turners 21 per game, as he threw 7 assists per contest.  The Illini recruit has the chance to have a bright future with the right coaching.

Verbally Committed: Illinois

Demetri McCamey

2006-2007 Class AA All-State

Cole averaged 19 points and 11.6 rebounds for the Knights, who were beaten in the super sectional by Lincoln. Bill exploded a few times for 30 plus point games.  He is one of the few players in the state averaging a double-double for a consistently rated team.

The stateís best rebounder and his team were put out early.  However, that doesnít override what he did for TF North this season.  Watt averaged 18 points and 12 rebounds.  He proved that he was a high level prospect and led his team with great poise throughout the season.

Considering: Illinois State, Indiana State, Iowa, Oklahoma, St. Louis, UAB, Wyoming

2006-2007 Class AA All-State

The three-point specialist was sought out all season long. However, it didnít affect his game as he bombed 21 points per contest and pulled down 5 rebounds.  The one-time 2nd state rated Panthers were put on their backs many times by the heroic efforts of Roth and teammate Sean Johnson.

Considering: Bradley, Illinois State, Southern Illinois
