Hillcrest’s Jerel McNeal, one of the top Class of 2005 prospects in the state of Illinois, spent his summer destroying opponents on both ends of the basketball court. McNeal, who was a key member of Meanstreets National Championship run, teams with Maurice “Lil Reese” Acker to form one of the top backcourt duo’s in the state of Illinois.
McNeal, a 6-2 shooting guard, is a tough competitor on the basketball court. Last year, as a sophomore, McNeal averaged 16 points and 6 rebounds per contest. McNeal is a player capable of dominating a basketball game on both ends of the floor. Offensively, he combines superb finishing skills with shooting range that extends out beyond the three-point arc. McNeal is a “lock-down” defender who is typically assigned to the opponents’ top offensive player.
McNeal told Chicago Hoops that he views his defense, and his athletic ability as the two strongest parts of his game right now. He is working hard to improve all aspects of his game including his ballhandling, and his jump shot. McNeal is spending a lot of time in the weight room, and is also doing a lot of running in preparation for the upcoming season.
McNeal is getting lots of attention from colleges throughout the midwest. He has heard from every school in the Big 10 except for Michigan. Last Thursday, Illinois head coach Bruce Weber, and DePaul assistant Gene Cross were both in attendance at an open gym at Hillcrest. McNeal is also drawing heavy interest from Marquette, Dayton and Indiana State.
McNeal, and his Hillcrest backcourt mate Maurice “Lil Reese” Acker, combine to form one of the top backcourt duo’s in the state of Illinois. They have been playing together since grammar school, and will be looking to lead Hillcrest to yet another 20+ win season.
