AJ Redd, who is expected to finish his career as St. Ignatius’ all-time leader in games played, is one of the Chicago Catholic League’s talented seniors, several of whom have not yet decided where they will be playing at the next level.

These athletes all play significant roles on teams with major postseason aspirations. Additionally, they are all looking to compete in college, and their coaches are confident they will.

“He’s definitely going to play in college,” Leo High School head coach Jamal Thompson said of Lion guard Cameron Cleveland.

The Chicago Catholic League includes 14 high school boys teams. This story doesn’t reflect the unsigned girls players from the Girls Catholic Athletic Conference.
