    I think Burgess only covers Illinois, from what I'm seeing. So he's Top 15 in Illinois.

    John Poulakidas was at least, I think. Might be more but I haven't been able to investigate much.

    John Poulakidas making an outstanding first impression. 8 points in the first 3 minutes against Indy Heat 2021. He’s been extremely aggressive attacking the rim which I wasn’t expecting. I like this Young and Reckless squad. They are up 10 early.

    Definitely in agreement with Jared on Poulakidas. I was really interested in seeing more of him this weekend and he showed a lot when we watched. Far more aggressive off the bounce than I would have expected and is quite crafty. Ball handling is already relatively tight as well. Admittedly, though, he’s tough to match up with at this level due to his size (6-foot-6 at least) so I second that seeing him against tougher teams might have been nice. Either way, he was impressive and I’m definitely on board. Butler is in contact, as are a number of schools around the nation.

    Seems like the staff is currently only offering in-state 2021’s, but I’d imagine Poulakidas would be one of the first out-of-state offers.

    It was reported yesterday that Poulakidas is unofficially visiting campus on June 10th. I asked him today and that is indeed the case. I think this will be his second time on campus in the last few months. I think he’d be a great snag due to his offensive skill and defensive effort. He can fill it.

    So this is his second unofficial to Butler. Saying that because of what is on the first post of this thread. Obviously an offer should be coming when he comes. Also beatable list.

    He's been to multiple games, including Senior Day if I remember right. It sounds like there's more than average interest here.

    Well close to home. Naperville is not too far from me. Wonder if he will get more offers from other schools. Looks like UIC and SIU are the only ones who have offered. Iowa I don't think has.

    He's got definite upside, still growing, hasn't filled out yet. Has the feel and look of a top 100 at the worst top 150. Offense definitely top 100. Good shot creator and big shot taker

    Definitely a high-level scorer with the ability to fill it up either with the ball or in catch-and-shoot situations. I would also say (and I think Jared would agree) that although not a tremendous defend, he seems to put forth a lot of effort on that end and has plenty of size. Should only improve there but it’s sometimes hard to teach putting in effort.
