There was one downer for the Best Choice United program in 2015, but for the most part the club is coming off a very, very strong summer campaign.
“Losing Ty Harris was hard, but overall we had a very good summer,” said Coach Marlon Wright. “We had a very young team, and I feel like they really overachieved. We were also excited because we had a lot of college coaches at every game. When you have coaches watching you like that, it shows that they see value in our kids, and it makes for a very productive summer.”
Best Choice United will close out their 2015 campaign at the Chicagoland Tournament of Champions. The All Star Girls Report event, which will be played on Sept. 26 at Bolingbrook High School, will feature an outstanding field.
The most well-known Best Choice players are Harris (2016, 5-11, G, ranked at No. 29 in her class by ASGR) and Katlyn Gilbert (2018, 5-11, G, No. 8). Harris recently trimmed her list of potential colleges to 10, and Gilbert experienced a major jump in recruiting intensity this summer.
Two top-flight prospects from Best Choice has already committed to schools. Emily Sullivan (2016, 6-4, P, No. 128) is headed to North Carolina, and Kayla Coffman (2016, 6-3, P) is bound for Evansville.
