WCIA — Top Illinois basketball 2019 recruiting target EJ Liddell released his Top 5 schools on Monday afternoon. The 6-foot-7 forward from Belleville West will focus his attention on Illinois, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Missouri and Kansas State.
The consensus 4-star prospect is ranked as a Top 50 player nationally. Liddell led the Maroons to the Class 4A state title in March, then was named the state’s Mr. Basketball.
Illinois still does not have a commitment in the 2019 class; signing day is exactly three months from Tuesday.
