The class of 2022 has a number of talented frontcourt players. We are focusing on a handful of bigs from the class today.
Dylan Arnett (6-8 PF, DePaul College Prep)
An up-tempo big with excellent mobility at 6-foot-8, Arnett has been receiving Division 1 interest over the last few weeks. He is agile changing ends with solid explosiveness off the ground. Expect him to be an above-average screen-and-roll player diving to the front of the rim. Arnett’s activity is present on the defensive end as well, where his long arms and quickness are bonuses. The rim-running big has been in touch with Air Force, Holy Cross, Miami (OH), and NJIT among others.
Chase Bonder (6-6 PF, Libertyville)
Bonder is an inside-out scorer with a college-ready perimeter game. With a quick release and good footwork behind the arc, Bonder catches ready to shoot from distance. He is a solid high-post player with the ability to shoot it after facing up or kicking out to teammates. When he sees a mismatch, he has some moves on the block to take advantage of his size. Bonder projects as a face-up four at the next level.
Conrad Luczynski (6-10 C, Bartlett)
A giant 2022 big, Luczynski has a soft touch for someone of his size. He’s a threat to pop or roll, hitting threes off the catch. As his body matures, he will be more equipped to bang on the interior. With his length, Luczynski will be an intriguing player for college coaches heading into his junior year.
Sean Paige (6-7 PF, Willowbrook)
Paige is a high motor forward that is full of potential. He is a dominant rebounder that is constantly carving out space for second chances on the offensive end. Still a bit raw offensively, Paige has a nice jump shot out to the three-point line and good touch around the basket. He protects the paint defensively and shows potential to contain ball-handlers off screens. To this point, Paige looks like one of the high-upside bigs in the 2022 class.
