Simeon Open Gym Highlights! Talen Horton Tucker, New Transfers Shine!
Simeon Career Academy (Chicago, IL) might have the highest profile public high school basketball program in Chicago as well as in the entire nation.
Led by Coach Rob Smith, the Wolverines vie for Chicago city and Illinois state titles year after year, while playing a national non-conference schedule.
Last season, the Wolverines won the Chicago city title and came up just short, finishing as runners-up in the Illinois 4A (big division) title game to Chicago Whitney Young.
This season, 6’5 senior Talen Horton Tucker is expected to lead the Simeon Wolverines basketball team alongside key transfers Xavier Pinson from Chicago St Pat’s and Zion Young from Merrillville, Indiana and Wasatch Academy.
Talen is expected to be a contender for Illinois Mr. Basketball. His offers include Michigan State, Ohio State, Florida State, Xavier, Kansas, SLU, Missou, Illinois, Iowa State, Dayton, Georgetown, and Georgia Tech.
We caught one of Simeon’s early open gym sessions and thought Ballislife viewers would want an early look at what might be the best public school team in Chicago (or the nation).
Check out these raw highlights from Chicago Simeon Career Academy’s open gym featuring Talen Horton Tucker.
Ballislife will continue following Talen Horton Tucker and the Simeon Wolverines this season.
