Oswego East, with Dennis, Sam Schultz and Kam Battle returning, figures to be one of the Chicago area's top teams this year.
The Wolves have joined the Hinsdale Central Holiday Tournament at Christmas, and will play Batavia at the Night of Hoops in a beefed-up schedule.
Dennis, a reputed gym rat, is a good example for the rest of the program.
"He is a special player, and teams take notice," Velasquez said. "When you can get a quality point guard it makes a difference. All of this is a testament that Ray J's hard work is paying off."
One of Boise's selling points, in fact, was their player development.
"Once he gets in a college program where the strength and conditioning is serious throughout the season he will get stronger, and his skill development will improve," Velasquez said. "He'll be a better leader, better defender, better shooter. It's nice to see."
