Sotos highlights from July 2016 AAU play against some good competition:

And some highlights from some high school competition in June: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwmPI4cXbYk


Btw, for those who haven't followed the recruiting closely, Sotos is a 6-3 PG who can also play the two. He plays for Conant H.S., which is located in a Chicago suburb.

Sotos to Bucknell classified as biggest recruiting steal in the Illinois class of 2017.

Some notes from Sotos' first few weeks of HS ball:

1. Had 29 points in three quarters Friday night in a 62-33 win.

2. His Conant team beat 7-1 Benet Saturday night to run their record to 9-2. They are one of the top-rated team in the Chicago metro area.

3. Video of him as the CSN Athlete of the Week: http://www.csnchicago.com/preps-talk/wintrusts- ath...

4. Sotos Draws Praise After Win


Btw, Conant also has a 6-9 junior center, Ryan Davis, who is getting some D1 looks and already has an offer from Wright State. Wonder if the Bison have any interest.

Sotos has had three good games this week in leading his Conant team to the semis of a tournament:

1. "Conant 71, Glenbard East 38 (first round at York): The favorites impressed. Jimmy Sotos scored 23."

2."Conant 53, Hinsdale South 46: Jimmy Sotos did a bit of everything with 16 points, eight rebounds, six assists and four steals. Ryan Davis added 13 points and eight boards."

3. "Conant 72, Brother Rice 63: Big games from Jimmy Sotos and Ryan Davis. Sotos had 24, Davis 23 points and seven rebounds."

I think the Bison will be quite happy if he hits 52% on threes as a Bison. . . Not sure what his overall pct is.

For the tournament, he averaged 20 ppg in what were generally low-scoring games

Sotos was recently named to a few All-Area and All-State teams:

1. Illinois Prep All-State - on their 5-man 4th team (all classes), which makes him a top 20 player in the state in their opinion. Bruninga also made 4th team.

2. Illinois Coaches Association All-State - 2nd team for 3A/4A (larger schools)

3. Chicago Sun-Times All-Area - made 20-player Chicago all-area team, which includes the city and all of its suburbs.
