Coach Big Pete's 2022

Top Summer Illinois Recruit Risers

Naz Hill DB/Athlete Kankakee Class of 2023 6'4 170 HUDL TWITTER

Naz has been on fire as of lately for an Illinois recruit out of the 2023 Class. Oregon offer made him hit the national spotlight and what's scary is he has only just begun. He has all the tools to be a top 100 recruit in the nation. 6'4 frame isn't supposed to move like that but Naz does which is intriguing.

Ethan Kohl QB Bradley Bourbonnais Class of 2024 6'3 175 HUDL TWITTER

In an interview I was asked to name one QB that could shoot up the charts this summer and Ethan Kohl is my answer. Athleticism and just pure competitor spirit is what makes him special. Love his ability to make a play out of nothing.

Ivan Erickson DE Marmion Academy Class of 2023 6'6 240 HUDL TWITTER

Mr. Erickson just got his first big offer from Northern Iowa and will continue to get D1 looks to lookout for. Again, the huge thing will be for Ivan on how he does on 1on1s during the summer and how much performance separation he get from other recruits. Of course, watch out if he gains some muscle growth.

Michael McLaughlin OL Peoria Notre Dame Class of 2024 6'4 265 HUDL TWITTER

People need to check this kid out, and his natural ability for that frame is just impressive. Great frame and not to mention his extension on defensive linemen. Mr. McLaughlin is the real deal name you must watch out for in the Peoria area.

Charlie Cruse WR/ATH Downers Grove North Class of 2025 6'0 170 HUDL TWITTER

What has not been said about Mr. Cruse - the kid has been extraordinary all winter and spring offseason. The kid only keeps getting better and name you must know when we get into the summer camp season. Most coaches will look at his natural form ability at WR and ability to adjust his body for the catch.

Jacob Katauskas OL Lemont Class of 2023 6'4 265 HUDL TWITTER

Mr. Katauskas is killing it right now and his stock is rising especially for the OL out of the Class of 2023. He has the footwork and to mention tenacity at the line to be a top recruit. Big thing will be his growth as we get into the fall when scouts get chance to get out to see some Lemont games.

Aiden Cyr QB Hoffman Estates Class of 2023 6'5 195 HUDL TWITTER

Huge wait and see when we get into the camp season. Alot of college coaches can't wait to see this kid fling it. He has chance to prove he is a Top 3 QB in the state of Illinois. He has all the intangibles at the position that most Illinois QBs don't have. He was lighting up the scoreboards for Hoffman Estates team last fall.

Charlie Mullen TE Ottawa Marquette Class of 2024 6'4 180 HUDL TWITTER

Charlie has a chance to be one of the Top 10 tight ends in the Midwest region for the Class of 2024. Charlie needs make a name for himself this camp and needs to impress scouts with his blocking ability. Name you need to watch when that Illinois tight end pipeline heats up in later June. Again, this small school stud has proven he belongs with the big dogs.

Kenyata Forbes Jr DT Kenwood Class of 2023 6'2 280 HUDL TWITTER

Mini tank, that gets aggressive and counters the offensive line reach. Is a nightmare on the defensive line, and you need to know this master of havoc and creator of chaos in the trenches. Kenyata stock is just starting to get hot right now.

Andy Burburija OL Crystal Lake South Class of 2024 6'4 265 HUDL TWITTER

Andy has proven again why Crystal Lake is the land of giants and why you should know him. His stock will only rise this summer camp season as soon people get load of his ability. Also, another late fall scouting project for college coaches.

Arthur Palicki QB Willowbrook Class of 2024 6'4 205 HUDL TWITTER

Arthur is big name recruit that is ready to explode on the pipeline in this early this summer. Mr. Palicki wants to better himself and when he makes a mistake, he learns from it. Name you need to check out when he hits the camp scene and has drawn comparisons to Ben Bryant the former Lyons Township star QB.

Kevin Ward Athlete St. Patrick Class of 2023 6'4 240 HUDL TWITTER

Pure football player first of all and let's not forget his knack for laying a hit on film. Main thing is how can this guy breakout on the camp season against the 1on1s. Mr. Ward has to show off that agility and growth.

Danny Zarco OL Lyons Township Class of 2024 6'4 240 HUDL TWITTER

Danny is a beast on the line that will knock you on the ass. Mr. Zarco has been nothing but a stud on the showcase circuit and high character recruit. Has constantly improved every time that I have seen him. Alot of college coaches have a wait and see attitude with Zarco and they better not wait any longer because he could start getting some offers.

Chris Farrell OL Lisle Class of 2023 6'5 280 HUDL TWITTER

2 D1 offers (Kent State & Fordham) so far, and Mr. Farrell keeps on climbing of the college coach's charts. He has chance to reach national spotlight pretty soon by July.

Logan Farrell TE Palatine Class of 2025 6'3 236 HUDL TWITTER

Another showcase circuit recruit that has been warming up on the charts. Is name you need to know for this upcoming season and going into Winter 2023. Has the size and knows how to use his leverage. His development on his blocking will be important for College Coaches.

Ethan Middleton Athlete St. Rita Class of 2024 5'11 185 HUDL TWITTER

Mr. Middleton has been on fire this whole offseason on the recruiting scene. Mr. Middleton has gathered Power 5 offers and it's just weird he is just beginning to make the national spotlight. Middleton can do anything and everything on the field and could be the next big time recruit out of the CCL/ESCC.

Kanye Tyler Athlete Pekin Class of 2023 6'0 180 HUDL TWITTER

Mr. Tyler is boring me because I been talking to him so much. He is one of the best kept secrets in the state of Illinois. Please keep an eye out for this kid in the summer. HE IS READY EXPLODE and all he needs is just a spark.
