Joliet’s Jeremy Fears Continues To Be Impressive On The Basketball Court

Joliet’s Jeremy Fears, one of the top Class of 2004 prospects in the state of Illinois, continues to be impressive on the basketball court. The versatile Fears has improved his stock with a solid showing this summer.

Fears, a 6-3 guard, is both strong and athletic on the basketball court. Fears primarily plays point guard, but has the versatility to get minutes at the point, shooting guard or small forward. Earlier this year, Fears told Chicago Hoops that he feels that point guard will be his best position on the next level.

This summer, Fears has been very impressive running the point for the RBS All Stars. He is a player that has the ability to take over a game on both ends of the floor. A former star wide receiver in football, Fears is an outstanding pressure defender who covers the floor like a blanket. He led RBS to a 2nd place finish in Division II at the 17-U Nationals.

Last year, Fears averaged 20 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists per contest for Joliet Township. He will lead a Joliet team this year that will be looking to bounce back from a subpar season by Joliet standards.

A number of teams are actively showing an interest in Fears including Southwest Missouri State, Southern Illinois, Ball State, Purdue, Ohio, UNLV and Wyoming.
