What Others are saying about Khaleb!!!

“It was a Pleasurable and refreshing experience in coaching Khaleb last summer,  his work ethic, everyday approach to the game and Basketball IQ, is what a coach expects from all of his players but we all know that’s not the norm so meeting and coaching a player with these attributes makes the job easy, he’s an ultra competitive coach on the floor he doesn’t take any plays off and is a complete player on the offensive end, he can drive and finish thru contact with both hands, he can pull up on you, he can create his own shot, and he can play off the ball and is very efficient from deep either off the catch and shoot or in transition. He has a very bright future ahead of him and will be successful where he has the opportunity to play at.”  Pat Gordon

“I think Khaleb is the sleeper everyone wants!… He is a competitor in every sense of the word and just doesn’t know how to lose…He plays the game the right way and is one of the most coachable kids you can find.. He is a joy to be around and is extremely humble for a kid with his magnitude of talent… easily comparable or better talent than any all star guard in Chicago…” Marcus Spencer – Coach Lincoln Park – Chicago

Khaleb Highlights

“Khaleb is a pleasant and kind young man. He enters every room with a smile on his face and a positive attitude. He is respectful of adults and fellow classmates on and off the court. Khaleb also participates regularly and enjoys classroom discussions on a variety of topics.”  High School Teacher – Ms. Kassandra Tsitsopoulos

“Khaleb is the prototypical sleeper that everyone misses early because he plays basketball like it was meant to be played.  He is going to make a MM+ program very happy they picked him up.  Khaleb checks all the boxes… Grades, Character, Coachability, Humility, IQ, Poise, Ball-Handling and certainly Shooting.  In addition to his passes being on point, he is sneaky athletic and plays above the rim when he needs to.  “My humble guess is that when his playing days are over, there are going to be Power 5 conference coaches that wished they recruited him.”    Coach Jason Warner – Rockford Elite Basketball – 17U Illinois Stars Coach

“Khaleb has great understanding of the game; a natural instinct that you can’t teach. Pairing this with his ability to be coached, take what was asked of him, and execute it on the court, makes him very well prepared for the next level.”  Steve Johnson -Former Varsity Basketball Coach – Alcott

“Khaleb is a wonderful student-athlete!  He is an integral part of our team, but in a larger context, he is an integral part of our school community.  His positive attitude, work ethic, and dedication to doing well are exemplified by his success in the classroom as well as on the court.”  – Dr. Schall – Principal at Prosser Career Academy

Khaleb Rouse vs. Fenton (27 points = Playoff game) (Full Game)

“Khaleb is a coachable player with a great attitude and desire to get better. In almost 20 years of coaching hundreds of players who have gone on to play in college, Khaleb Rouse is the best under recruited player I have been around. You hear of players like Ja Morant and their lack of offers coming out of high school, this is where Khaleb falls in.”  Craig Veselik – Illinois Basketball Academy/Illinois Stars

Prosser vs. North Lawndale (21 minutes below)

“It’s been absolutely a pleasure coaching Khaleb over the years. He is truly a great talent & sky’s the limit. His speed strength & IQ of the game are amazing. But his greatest asset is he’s a GREAT ALL AROUND KID!🙏🏿🏀  Coach Chuck
