Schilb Headed Back To Midwest

Blake Schilb hails from the Midwest and he's headed back there. The 5th year forward made a commitment on Wednesday.

Loyola Lands Schilb

We've wondered for a long time when Brewster Academy forward Blake Schilb might join the ranks of the committed. On Wednesday, we got our answer.

"Blake Schilb verballed to Loyola earlier today," Brewster coach Jason Smith said.

Schilb was an integral part of the Ft. Sooy No Limit team last spring and summer. The squad captured titles in Philadelphia and Ft. Wayne and Schilb played a key role as a guy who did the dirty work, hustled and made shots.

Proximity was a factor for the Illinois native. But, in the end Loyola just won him over. "He's very excited about the league and the great young talent Loyola has in their freshmen and incoming class. Coach Spinelli and Coach Farmer did a terrific job recruiting Blake."

Bradley, Manhattan, College of Charleston and Toledo were among the interested parties.
