Mega-Athletic Jeremy Fears Solidifies His Position As An Elite 2004 Basketball Prospect

Joliet Township’s Jeremy Fears has solidified his position as an elite Class of 2004 basketball prospect. In a class loaded with star point guards, Fears ranks among the best in Illinois, and could boost his stock even further with a strong senior campaign.

A former football receiver, the 6-3 Fears has firmly positioned himself among the elite basketball prospects in the state of Illinois for the Class of 2004. Fears is strong and highly athletic. He is capable of getting points from the perimeter, slashing to hole, or even muscling around inside. On defense, Fears is an absolute terror, covering the court like a blanket.

Although he runs the point, Fears has the versatility to also play shooting guard, or small forward. However, he is most comfortable with the ball in his hands, running the offense.

Fears told Chicago Hoops that he is continuing to work hard in the offseason. He is putting a heavy emphasis on improving his jump shot. Fears is continuing to train in the weight room, and is looking to improve all aspects of his game.

Fears, who averaged 20 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists per contest last year, feels that Joliet Township is going to be a very, very solid team this year. Fears is a natural leader on the basketball court, and his leadership will play a crucial role in Joliet’s success in 2003-04.

A number of schools are pursuing Fears. Purdue, Ohio University and Southwest Missouri State are his leaders. He recently visited the Purdue campus, and came away very impressed with both the school and the coaching staff.
