Young Guns Update

Recently I had the chance to take in some conversations with Caleb and Colby Long of Mt. Zion, Illinois. Read here for a quick update on their season.

Both players have expressed many times their interest in Illinois, and playing at the Division I level. According to both Caleb and Colby, they're receiving interest from Purdue and Southern Illinois.

Recently in a game against Pana High School, Colby had 36 points and Caleb had 25 points with 10 assists.

Both players are around the 5'11"- 6'0" range, but play different roles for their team. Because of their AAU connections their names will sure surface a lot more. This spring and summer both plan to play for Coach Mike Mullins and the Illinois Wolves. At one time they were thinking of playing for the Illinois Warriors but that has since changed.

The Long brothers plan to keep the Illiniboard updated as their season progresses.
