CREME OF THE CROP
Bergen Catholic (Ordell, NJ)
6’0 Point Guard
First thought after first sight, Cole Anthony-like assassin with the ball in his hands. Pure hooper, leaves defenders in quick sand. Demonstrated explosion off of the floor, range and elite playmaking ability. Passing ability and vision are different.
Justin demonstrated an ability to shoot the ball. Great size, long athletic wing. First step and explosion at the rim separated him from the competition. Skilled with the ball in his hands, able to use length and speed to get into the paint. Slashing/Scoring type… Capable of being an elite defender.
Xaverian (Brooklyn, NY)
Goldstein played his way into the “Creme of the Crop” with relentless effort from the point, dead-eye shooting and a knack for finding teammates in scoring position. He was getting it done off the bounce and looked fluid and confident in catch and shoot situations. Excellent ball screen-awareness/progression, consistently making the right read, leading to offensive production.
Jenkins demonstrated an ability to do it all consistently at both ends of the floor, as an elite guard. Highly skilled and understand the game and pace. Effective down to his screen setting. He has a profound ability to pass the ball, makes the easy, smart play with the ability to make difficult plays for most his age, look simplistic.
Highlands (Warrenton, VA)
Luke’s presence was felt in the paint all week. Thick frame allowed him to control the lane for his team. He scored around the rim with strength and aggression. Demonstrated an ability to knock down the 12 footer. Reminded me of a young Tre Mitchell if he puts it all together, has the frame to develop.
Roman Catholic (Philadelphia)
Toby put together an excellent week. Demonstrated an ability to score the ball at a high level and was a relentless ball hawk at the other end.
Malachi Palmer ’24
Silky Smooth with the ball ion his hands. Effective & highly efficient. Makes putting the ball in the basket from all three levels look extremely easy.
Iona Prep, NJ
Dominated from the point guard position with sheer size, athleticism and skill. Often the best player on the floor. Jason made shots consistently while always making the proper basketball play. Hugh Upside.
