Evan Gilyard (UTEP commit) is a four-year varsity player for Chicago Public League powerhouse Simeon Career Academy. After waiting for his time to come, the flashy point guard is leading Simeon’s balanced scoring attack alongside junior Talen Horton-Tucker and Kezo Brown and the Wolverines are off to their best start in memory (16-0).
