In recent years, in the fall, PBR Illinois has been making the trek around the state to gain intel on the state’s bustling JUCO environment. The recruiting landscape these past few years has reshaped the way four-year Division I, II, and III programs are stocking their incoming classes, and it’s resulted in generating an even more talented pool of players opting for the JUCO route – especially in a state like Illinois, where the JUCO atmosphere is as competitive as anywhere in the nation.

This page contains insight into the state's healthy JUCO scene, complete with player rankings, scouting reports, and data collected at the Scout Day events we hosted in September and October.
