Fenwick’s Vince Humphrey, who was one of the top uncommitted Class of 2004 prospects left on the board, has verbally committed to Homer Drew and the Valparaiso Vikings. Illinois Wolves teammate Steve Holdren of Champaign Centennial is heading to South Dakota State.

Humphrey, a 6-4 guard/forward, was a three-year starter at Fenwick, and one of the top prospects in the always rugged Catholic League. Humphrey, a lefty, is known for his ability to get points both inside and outside. Humphrey will join Wolves teammate Jarryd Loyd at Valpo.

Holdren, a 6-4 small forward, teamed with Trent Meacham at Champaign Centennial to form one of the better duo’s in the state of Illinois. South Dakota State will be joining the Mid-Continent Conference, and be playing Division I basketball this year.

The 2003 Illinois Wolves 17-U squad has now produced eight Division I players in Shaun Pruitt (Illinois), Gordon Watt (Boston College), Ollie Bailey (Rutgers), Frank Clair (Northern Illinois), Jarryd Loyd (Valparaiso), Vince Humphrey (Valparaiso), Steve Holdren (South Dakota State), Kyle Carrabine (William & Mary). Chris Cornelius of Oak Park is still deciding between offers from a number of Division I, and Division II schools. Matt Cunningham will be going to Western Illinois as a preferred Walk-On, and Aaron Anderson will decide between Illinois-Springfield and Olivet Nazerene.

Troy Johnson and Dan Cunningham really got the job done in getting their players scholarships!

Mike Mullins 17-U Wolves squad looks to have much of the same going this year. The Wolves feature Bobby Frasor (Chicago Brother Rice), who is one of the hottest prospects in the country, and also Bryan Mullins (Downers Grove South), Mike Davis (Chicago Gordon Tech), Sead Odzic (Niles West), Mason Stewart (Waubonsie Valley), Ryan Sharp (Plainfield) and Scott Smith (Highland Park). Smith already has Division I football offers on the table, while the rest are expected to be playing Division I basketball once their high school careers are complete.
