Two “Which Is Better?” Questions…

1. Kylan Boswell OR Skyy Clark?
2. Kylan Boswell OR Skyy & ZZ Clark?

Just trying to start the tread off on-topic, off-gif… 😆

Well in question #2 it is not like we wouldn't get another guard, so Kylan Boswell and who vs Skyy and ZZ.

I'd say it's tough to differentiate between Skyy and Kylan because I think Skyy is the better scorer and Kylan the better defender. Similar size and body type, both very good. If I was forced to choose, I would take Kylan but you can't go wrong either way.

As someone mentioned previously
SI has a potenial nba draft ranking of 67. Pete Nance, F/C, Northwestern | Senior

"Still, Pete Nance's genetics will have some teams interested in drafting him or signing him to an NBA Summer League or NBA G-League contract. Once he is in the league, Nance will get to prove that he is on the level of his family members." https://www.sportskeeda.com/basketball/top-5-ncaa-players-declared-2022-nba-draft

I don’t have a firm board at the moment, but he’ll likely fall in the 45-60ish range for me. Teams that run motion heavy offenses or have similar players like Utah or Chicago likely would benefit most from a player like Nance. https://www.insidenu.com/2022/3/12/...xpert-ben-pfiefer-on-northwesterns-pete-nance

Northwestern senior power forward Pete Nance, the No. 95 prospect on ESPN’s board,m https://www.hoopsrumors.com/2022/04/draft-updates-diabate-nance-wong-gach-mocks.html

Any tea leaves suggesting Nance has interest in the Illini he he opts to return to college?????

Already committed elsewhere:
Jones

Already eliminated Illinois:
McCullar
Bates
Miller

Focusing on the draft/No mention of Illinois
Baldwin

FocusI got in the draft/still possible:
Nance
Ramey
Mayer

Still think Nance is the most likely as he fills the greatest need. Ramey and Mayer have significant buzz elsewhere.

I think even after the knee injury Skyy still seems like the more explosive athlete. Both are good shooters and passers so thats hard to tell the difference. I really liked Kylan and he's a tough kid/defender but he's not the biggest so I could see him getting knocked around a little on D as a freshman. As someone fairly accurately posted in another thread the Clark boys are indeed thicc.

Think the buzz your hearing on Mayer maybe a bee around your ear.

Don't be surprised if Epps doesn't surpass both of them. Very high ceiling on Jayden. Epps defense will allow him to see the floor very early at Illinois.

North Carolina is making a significant push for him to step into Brady Manek’s shoes. Doesn’t mean they’ll get him.

He reminds be alot of Andres Feliz which is a good thing! We missed him bigtime this year. Looks like Epps may have a better 3 point shot though. We will find out. ILL!
