” Stock Risers Below!! JHE Preseason Top 10 Schools Coming 10/19
Mid October Stock Risers
Jaloni Johnson 2023 – Yes Sirrrrrrr!!!! here is a player that Jr Hoops Elite has been missing for quite some time, Jaloni is a kid who has been playing up the past two years and we always were like is he in 2022 or 2023? Well some people are in trouble and definitely will be moving down when we update our rankings, young fella is a nightmare for opposing coaches, Jaloni is long combo forward who has tremendous foot work, foot speed and a quick jumper off the floor, he makes it look too easy against the big slower forwards, then young fella has that face-up game where he can take you off the dribble and finishes in traffic over players with his length, “Yep!!! We Have A Prospect!!!!” The versitilty of playing both ends of the floor effective make Jaloni a Stock Riser and definitely a kid who will make his debut Thanksgiving Day in the updated rankings rather high. We expect too see Jaloni at the Top Prospect Showcase Feb 24th where many of the top players in the Midwest will be in attendance.
Miles Casey 2022- Talk about a crafty, hard working, competitive and fiesty Looooooook Nooo Further!!! They don’t make them like this anymore. “I want him on my team”is what every coach would say about young fella. Miles can knock the open shot down off the catch or off the dribble, he can hit you with a nice pass setting up his teammates or he can slice and dice his way to the basket among 1,2 or even 3 defenders if necessary. I know for a fact a couple of high school coaches are hoping young fella is in their uniform when the season starts next year. Miles is the player who leaves everything on the line and gives his all every single game. Miles earned an invite to the invite only Top Prospect Showcase Feb. 24th and another player who will definitely make his debut in the Jr Hoops Elite Updated rankings released Thanksgiving @ 10pm
Jeremy Alderson 2022- Sometimes you see a player and you say ” he is getting better and better” Yep that’s Jeremey a player who not many were talking about to now a kid who high school coaches will be at games saying ” wait a minute, I need to speak with his parents” Jeremey is an attacking combo g/f who finishes strong at the rim, he has the ability to take the bumps and put opposing players in the basket. Young Fella also has the frame where he can be a lock down defender. It will be very interesting over at Ariel this year as they are loaded with talent. Jeremy is another who has earned an invite to the Top Prospect Showcase Feb 24th where many of the Top Players in The Midwest will be in attendance with his play the past few weeks and another who will be making his debut in the updated rankings,
Amare White- Somebody better get out too the South Suburbs there is a slithery point guard with them ” thangs” talk about a magician with the ball in his hands, I watched young fella put on two moves that had me and the crowd in amazement one week, then watched young fella come back and have defenders shifting all over the floor as they couldn’t stay in front of Amare. Well young fella Jr Hoops Elite is well aware now and will be making some schools games for sure. Amare is a player who will be making his debut in our updated rankings Thanksgiving and a player we hope to see compete against the elite at the Top Prospect Showcase Feb 24th.
WoW is all I can say about the Jr Hoops Elite Fall League, talent is everywhere as over 50 of the top 125 players in the class of 2022 are in participation and many who will be entering in the updated released rankings on Thanksgiving. When I say there are teams stacked with talent playing each week that’s an understatement. Action is intense. This past weekend I watched back to back to back games come down to the last possession and at the other site we had 3 single point games including a game winner.
Mac Irvin Fire 14U v Meanstreets- The Fire came out hot and jumped out to an early 8 point lead behind Kameron Kraft who was on fire from deep knocking down his first 3 attempts and hitting 4 of 5 in the first half, as the Fire looked to extend a double digit lead, Jaylen Drane scored 6 straight and dished out two assist to take a 2 point lead with 4 minutes to go in the half, after a couple of baskets by Andre Casey Jr, Ryan Duncan answered with a 3 and after a basket from Derrick the Fire held a 22- 21 lead at half. It looked like Meanstreet had a size advantage and was about to impose its will inside, but a feisty defense and scrapping forwards held Big Andre to 4 points in the second half. Nick Harrell had several slithery moves to the basket and scored over the length and was a force in the paint. After runs back and forth by both teams it looked like Mac Irvin had the game in control, but wait a minute a pull-up jumpshot and a 3 by Keon Richardson it appeared that the Meanstreet had snatched back momentum as the game was again tied, with two chances to take the lead for Meanstreets went by the wayside as they turned it over. As the game went on Terry Elias got stronger. more comfortable and was relentless, he refused to be denied every-time his team needed a big bucket he provided an answer he was unstoppable in the second half scoring 15 of his 18 in the second half doing it inside and outside, young fella was masterful stopping in the middle of the lane and finishing through the big bodies as Mac Irvin Fire went up 3 possessions. Kameron Kraft finished up with 17 hitting 5 from deep mark it down “Best Shooter In The State”. Jaylen Drane did what he had been doing the whole game attack one man, split one man, wrap it around his back and finish at the rim with a basket and a foul, young fella was Unstoppable the whole game!!! This kid here uses the correct dribble every time, and no one seems to be able to stop him from getting where he wants. He scored on 3 straight possessions in between missed free-throws and finished with a game high efficient 24. Fire 46- Meanstreets 44
And One 14U- Fire 14U- When I say these two teams came out roaring it was crazy they were knocking down shots at a rate that most high school teams would noy have kept up with. And One came out looking like a sophomore team with 6/4 and 6/4 up front and a pair of 5/10 guards. There were 10 3’s hit in the first half including 3 in a row by Ahmad Henderson who personally went on a 9-0 run in the first half in a minute stretch that gave his team the lead as they walked into half time with a 39-34 lead Kameron Kraft f had 15 in the first half also of the fire. Tyler Faucett had 10 and Raleigh Roberson had 8 for And One. In the second half the teams went back and forth before and it appeared that And One was in position to take the lead then Nick Harrell came down the lane splitting defenders and reverse laying it up in traffic, then got a rebound, pushed it up the floor, zigging and zagging around defenders with the nifty dribble before again finishing thru one 6/4 and around the other that put the crowd in a roar. And One did not go away and finished strong despite being with out its leading scorer and tournament leading scorer thus far in the tournament Lil Toby. Several players played big in this game for both sides and contributed Fire were lead byKameron Kraft 17, Nick Harrell 12, Ahmad Henderson 9 And One we lead by Tyler Fawcett 14, Raleigh Roberson, Jared Badie 11 Fire 54- And One 52
Tyler Fawcett 2022- When looking at Tyler all you can say is “they don’t come around like this very often” here is a player who is a force in the paint, I had been out to see young fella play several times last year but he was never dressed to play, well I finally got to see this talent in action and let me tell ya young fella “ IS THE TRUTH!!!!”. Young Fella has great balance, uses his base, post moves and great foot-work you do not see much on this level, and his catch and shoot mid-range jump-shot is money in the bank. There is no doubt about it, when mentioning best post players in the state Tyler will definitely be in the conversation somewhere no doubt. This is a prospect who Jr Hoops Elite will be monitoring carefully and definitely out at school games this winter to see. Tyler definitely has earned an invite to the Top Prospect Showcase where many of the top players in the Midwest will be in attendance Feb 24th. Young Fella will definitely be making his debut in our updated rankings being released Thanksgiving Night @ 10pm.
