The Riverside-Brookfield Shootout gave CSNChicago.com a chance to get recruiting updates from some of the best players in the area.
Simeon rising senior guard Zach Norvell is one of the highest-rated players in Illinois, and the lefty shooting guard has multiple high-major offers. The 6-foot-4 Norvell is the No. 85 prospect in the country, according to Rivals, and he picked up recent scholarship offers from Wake Forest and Florida State.
Norvell also told CSNChicago.com he has scholarship offers from Memphis, Oklahoma, Bradley, Loyola and Illinois. Expected to be a senior leader for Simeon this season, Norvell would like to check out the campuses at Illinois and Georgetown.
Morgan Park senior guard Charlie Moore has already made multiple trips to Peoria as a major contributor, and he's been a player who has received more recruiting attention as the spring has gone alone.
The 5-foot-10 Moore has scholarship offers from DePaul, Illinois, Iowa, Georgia Tech, Loyola, UIC and Fairfield. The Hawkeyes are expected to have Moore on campus for an unofficial visit on June 20th and Moore also is trying to get to Illinois sometime soon.
Kenwood senior forward Nick Robinson has played with the Mac Irvin Fire with Norvell and Moore this spring, and he's played well enough to earn scholarship offers from Bradley, DePaul and UIC.
The 6-foot-6 Robinson is also getting interest from Creighton, Iowa, Nebraska and VCU, and a lot of programs will be tracking his game in July.
One of the state of Illinois' best juniors, Justin Smith, played with Stevenson this weekend and was a team leader for a group that is moving on without Jalen Brunson and Connor Cashaw.
The 6-foot-7 Smith has scholarship offers from Illinois, Indiana, Northwestern, Rice and Wake Forest. Smith plans to visit Purdue in June and would like to see Illinois, Indiana and Northwestern.
All four of these players have plenty of chances to earn scholarship offers this July when they play in front of college coaches during the live evaluation period.
