Stepping It Up!!!

Marlell Coleman & Darrion ” DJ” Jones

Marlell Coleman & DJ 2021- Are two of the toughest combo’s in the state, these young fella’s have been playing together for several years and are virtually inseparable, they have been causing havoc on opposing teams. Marlell known as one the best on ball defenders and taken his game to a new level as he showing his ability to finish in traffic and is showing a new found handle and dish game where he can translate to playing some pg look for young fella to move up the list in new updated rankings for sure. DJ who has been known to destroy opposing teams with his physical attacking the basket relentlessness is showing perimeter skills needed at the next level and proving that he played down low because of team needs at the Middle School Level and will be giving opposing teams fits at the next level. Bogan struck gold with these recent new additions.

CJ and Malik

Charles Doyle Jr. & Malik Williams 2021- Here is a dou who have been building a lot of chemistry for years, they seemed poised to contribute very early and be key pieces of a Farragut Admirals team which boast a young nucleus who will be good for the next few years for sure. Malik is a power point guard who can score points in bunches and attacks the basket with reckless abandon, young fella has put together some games that make you say ” wow did you see that!!!” CJ is a smooth combo guard who plays with patience and specializes in knocking shots down from all over the floor. These two have a chance to be one of those tandems in a few years that people will be talking about in the conversation as best in the conference.

JRHOOPSELITE TOP 200 CLASS OF 2021 

There has been plenty of movement in the newly released rankings, we have been out watching prospects 5 out of 7 days a week, however there are still players who have been off due to playing another sport and players who have just shut it down for a while. Please remember that the rankings are to be used for motivation and inspiration. There are several prospects who have just been ripping it up lately on the court and are improving day by day, there are others who are now currently growing into there body and will be a handful down the line. There are new players who are making there debut on the list(congrats). JrhoopsElite will be out this spring and summer looking at prospects, if you feel worthy and feel like you have not been seen feel free to contact me. I also occasionally leave off a kid or two after making adjustments by mistake so feel free to give me a call if you think that is the case, also remember I do not include any players I have not actually seen.

Top 5 Bucket Getters Regardless Of Class Below.

 

1.

Norvell Meadows

Norvell Meadows 2021- This young fella here is known for giving teams points in a hurry and he started off his Varsity debut with several 20 point games including a 26 point performance in his first game. look for young fella to be an impact freshmen this up coming season and young fella will be in attendance at the Best Of The Midwest Fabulous Freshmen & Super Sophomore Showcase In August. 

2.

Mar’Keise Irving

Mar’Keise Irving 2021- This kid here scored over 70 percent of his teams points leading a less than stellar team to the  State Championship Game. capable of giving any defender 40. virtually un-guardable one on one. A two sports star it’s crazy how good he is at both.

3.

Amari Bailey

Amari Bailey 2022- Young Fella is giving people big numbers and doing it rather easily, i don’t look at him as a scorer because he does so much and is so talented, but right now young fella is on the list of Bucket Getters because he has been putting the ball in the rack.

4.

Willie Bradley

Willie Bradley 2021- Young Fella is known for playing one- side of the ball and doing it really well. Young Fella has a sweat stroke, an old school pull-up game and some crafty finishing ability. There isn’t a player who scores more points per minute than Willie. He can give you 25 in 2 quarters easily.

5.

Tye Banks

Tye Banks 2022- Young Fella scores at a rapid pace, he has a feel for scoring, nothing spectacular just a knack of a scorer, I witnessed young fella lead his team to an undefeated State Championship giving teams bucket after bucket, he followed that up with a Spring in which he has steadily given the bigger name teams and players buckets.

 

 

Early June Stock Risers

Ed Harris Jr.

Edward Harris Jr. 2021-  If I say thee is a kid who has improved as much as anyone it would have to be Ed Harris Jr. to some known as EJ. young fella has went from a quiet on the court compliment player a year ago to one of the hardest competing players in his class. Young Fella has been in the gym getting better and better, this past week I watch young fella score the ball in a variety of ways, he was knocking the long ball off the dribble and attacking his man off the dribble and scoring at the rim looking like a stud in route to finishing the game with 31 pts in impressive fashion. If there is a kid primed to make a big leap in the rankings June 15th its this young man. Look for EJ this weekend at the Top Prospect Showcase as he is expected to be in attendance and on a mission.

 Promising Prospect Article Jaylen ” JRock” Drane Below

 

 

Commitment List as of 5/25

 

Promising Prospect 32#

“Extra Special”

Jaylen Drane

Some players just have that “It Factor” some players have gifts that can’t be taught, well there is a player out here when I see him play I say he has that ” Extra Special” his name is Jaylen Drane a 6ft plus combo guard who I’ve witnessed tearing holes out of his opponents and making it look easy on a regular. Dribble right split the defenders no look pass to his center for a basket, back down reverse spin off tear drop for a basket, cross half court dribble right crossover left 30ft jump-shot all net. “J-Rock” as known too most is a player who loves the big game, he is a player who loves and embraces the moment young fella is fearless. But what impresses me the most is his versatility and willingness to do whatever it takes, he can takeover a game scoring 20 in the second half or he can be a facilitator slicing and dicing his way thru defenders and spoon feeding his teammates for critical baskets at critical times. I stated last year I thought he was one of the Top 10 Prospects in Middle School and that’s when he was in 6th grade. In a class (2022) where talent is heavy at the top young fella is one that you will be hearing about on a regular at the next level, get ready to open you Sun-Times and see All Everything, get ready to see College Coaches lined up to get in gymnasium, J-Rock is a kid you can put the stamp on Division 1 and that’s something I rarely do at this early stage, but young fella has that “Extra Special” one of a few players when I leave the gym I say he was worth the price of admissions. Young Fella has been JrhoopsElite 1-3 rated player depending on the week, and certainly has the talent to be a household name in the country when things are all said and done down the line. JrhoopsElite looks forward to covering Jaylen Drane in the future and seeing him and his development as we must remember, as talented as he is the kid is still just in 7th Grade Wow!!! we would like to acknowledge Jaylen “J Rock” Drane as our Promising Prospect “Extra Special” yep young fella has game.

Put Some Respek On My Name !!!!

Ka’Mari Weatherspoon

Ka’Mari Weatherspoon 2022- WoW!!! young fella is Nice!!!!!! talk about a sweet shooting, smooth scoring, rebounding big who makes things look easy. Ka’Mari is quite the package, in 7th grade he makes it look super easy, as as it stands right now he definitely is one of the premiere post players in the State, but don’t get it twisted young yella has a lot of sauce off the dribble, he has a little of that Zack Randolph in his game where he can drag you outside and kcock it down from deep also. We look forward to watching plenty of Ka’Mari in the future, look for young fella too move his way up the rankings when they are released later next month.

Gavin Johnson

Gavin Johnson 2022- Curl the screen swish, dribble to the right knock down, 5 ft behind the line “all net” wait a minute this kid here is the truth!! Talk about text book form and elevation on the shot, I haven’t seen 3 in the class who do it better. Mark it down right now, here is a kid you will be seeing in the newspaper on somebody All- Area team in a few years. Gavin is a plus size 2 guard  from Central Illinois who can score points in a hurry. This past weekend Gavin made himself a must see prospect who JrhoopsElite will be keeping close tabs on. Look to see Gavin in our updated rankings being released June 15th.

Tre Woodlawn

Tre Woodlawn 2023- Here is powerful athletic point guard who is ready to show he belongs being mentioned with some of the elite in the state. Tre showed this past weekend that he is capable of taking over a game at anytime. He can create for others and get everyone involved or he can beat his man off the dribble and get to the bucket. JrhoopsElite will be keeping a close eye on young fella and we look forward to watching Tre play against the elite in his class. Young Fella is a hot prospect and he will definitely be climbing his way into the rankings when the update comes out June 15th. 

 

Keenan Abnar Jr.

Keenan Abner Jr. 2022- Every now and then you see a player and say “Prospect!!!!” yep make no mistake about it KJ is one of those kids who you look at and say “Umm hmm” he stands 6/2 with long arms and moves like he will not stop growing anytime soon. Young Fella played well this weekend and is a kid the more he plays against good competition the better he will be. While many kids are reaching their peak, young fella appears to be hitting ready to hit his stride. JrhoopsElite will definitely be in attendance to catch many of Keenan’s future games and look forward to monitoring his progress, look for Keenan to make his debut in the updated rankings being released June 15th.

Mid- May Stock Risers

Isaiah Donnell

 

Isaiah Donnell 2021- This ultra smooth  6/1 plus pg skills look better and better and some people at the next level can’t wait to play with a kid like this. Young Fella makes the game easier for his teammates as he makes everyone around him better with his play making. The fact that he is involved in all facets of the game( rebounding, scoring, defending multiple positions) make young fella a more complete player than most in his class. Young Fella stock is again on the rise look for him to make a jump up in the updated rankings being released June 15th Isaiah is a prospect who is sure to garner a lot of attention in years to come by the college recruiters.

Trey Pettigrew

 

Trey Pettigrew 2022- A consummate guard who is ready to explode, young fella has all the tools to be one of the elite guards in the class, he knocks it down with consistency, he handles it under pressure, he makes the necessary play to get his teammates involved and he is stretching out in height currently hitting the 5/10 mark. Being able to adapt to any situation is one of Trey’s strengths. haing lead his team to a better than 90 percent winning clip over the past couple of years, young fella personal game is starting too take off. In a class where the guards are starting to emerge young fella is right there and his Stock is definitely on the rise.

James Dent

James Dent 2021- Springfield, Illinois has a combo guard that has a knack for putting it in the bucket and has moves that will freeze most defenders, JrhoopsElite watched this young man knock it down from deep in the defenders face, split the double-team and hit pull up jumpers and slice his way through opponents off the dribble as if they were standing still. At Times James look like Jamal Crawford out there having defenders off balance. There is no doubt James will be in the Updated Rankings Being Released Next Month and is a Prospect jrhoopselite will definitely be keeping a close eye on.

 

Keshon Gilbert

Keshon Gilbert 2021- Here is an underrated, under the radar poised pg who can play with anyone in the class. Keshon seems to always be in control and one of those pgs that can hurt you in a variety of ways, young fella was unstoppable this past weekend getting to the rim at will there was absolutely no one who could stay in front of him. Young Fella had the play of the tournament when he crossed over his defender making him fall to the floor, then easily stepped too the side and nailed the pull-up jump-shot all net that set the gym off. Keshon is a player whose stock is on the rise and definitely a prospect who will be in the updated rankings being released next month.

Shane Miller

Shane Miller 2021-  At the Shaun Livingston Tournament this past weekend young fella showed he is a combo guard who has a variety of skills , young fella plays both ends of the floor as he competes hard. Shane can shot the long range jump, has a solid handle and can take the smaller opponent in the post and shoot over them as I watched him do several times. Shane is a prospect whose stock is rising and a prospect JrhoopsElite will be keeping close tabs on. Young Fella will be in the updated rankings being released next month.

Dionsysius Sims

Dionsysius Sims 2021= Beast, This Athletic, Powerful Wing Forward is A problem for people. “Big D” as we call him at Jrhoopselite is transforming his game forma straight down low power player to a powerful wing who candle handle and knock down the outside shot. When I say absolutely unstoppable, that he was thus past weekend, scoring, rebounding, handling and going coast to coast dunking and hanging on the rim as if it were 8 ft. Some people are definitely in trouble has young fella skills are catching up with his athleticism. Look for Big D to rise up the ranbkings when they are released next Month.

5/24

Lamontray Daugherty 2020

Lamontray Daugherty 2020- This kid here has that thing that draws coaches to him the minute he walks in the gym, his frame and athleticism are what makes young fella an intriguing prospect. a couple of years ago young fella was a kid who ran the floor well and finished in traffic with either hand pretty nice around the basket, fast forward a year and young fella is a ” watch ya head” type player who has the ability to put it on the floor off the dribble, knock down the perimeter shot or put you in a highlight by dunking ya body to body. Jrhoopselite has been recently catching up with the 2020 class and will be updating after the July live period. Lamontray Daugherty is definitely a prospect who is going to rise back up the charts and a prospect who College Coaches have inquired about. Talk about a future prospect to keep a close eye on. We look forward to seeing young fella at the Super Sophomore Showcase in August.

Maqael Henderson 2021

Maqael Henderson 2021- Here is a prospect who has gone a little under the radar through-out the state but the future Orr Spartan is about to serve notice to a lot of people, Maqael is a gritty grimy grammar school post player whom the coaches have been working too make the transition to combo forward and wing spot in high school. Young fella has a motor and competes at a high level. Look for Maqael and several of his teammates at Chicago Elite to surface as the summer continues. JrhoopsElite looks forward to watching Maqael and a few of his teammates at the Top Prospect Showcase June 10th and Nationals June 30th- July 2nd.

Shaun Harris 2020

Shaun Harris 2020- Why Why Why!!!! has Jrhoopselite slept on young fella for so long, or should we say we have not seen a player progress as quickly at Shaun Harris underrated and underappreciated is definitely whats the case here. This 2g is definitely a player to watch as he has a nice offensive package where he can rise from deep with ease and gets to the rime with little effort on his defenders. What impresses me about Shaun is he makes everything look easy and he has that confidence that ‘ no one can check him, in several close games over the last two weeks I’ve witnessed young fella knock down the go head basket 3 times in late game situations he seems to never feel pressure and he does this all while be under control and playing off other good players. Look for Shaun to be rather high in the updated 2020 when they are released and also we look forward to seeing Shaun at the Super Sophomore Showcase in August where many of the Top Rising Sophomores will be in attendance.

Promising Prospect Article Andre Casey Jr. Below!!!

 

Promising Prospect #31

” A Problem Causer “

Andre Casey Jr.

Somebody is walking around the Chicagoland Area, that is getting better and better by leaps and bounds. Drop Step Basket, Mid-Range Jump Shot Basket, On the break watch ya head a Power Dunk Basket, beat your man off the dribble Block Shot Against The Glass, uh oh young fella is  “A Problem Causer” here is a kid  whom people thought would be good in a few years just last year. Well everybody young fella  is ahead of the curve and becoming dominant right now. While I tell people the little guards are always better at an very early age, they have the ball in their hands, they dribble in the basement and hone ball handling skills early, they are quicker at understanding their bodies they look more fluent and polished. The bigs do not have all the early luxuries, but boy do they have all the potential and upside. Introducing Andre Casey Jr a player who has taken his game from a support player who can protect the rim into a feature player who shows all the skills of a future All- State and Division 1 player. I witnessed young fella a couple of weeks ago score 20 plus several games in a row, showing explosiveness to the rim and knocking down the perimeter shot, then this past weekend in the Championship Game at Chicago Jam-Fest I witnessed young fella score 27 being physical and finishing through contact at the rim and consistently knocking down contested jump-shots under pressure in leading his team to the victory and earning MVP. Young Fella is impressive and what makes things even scarier is that “AJ” upside and potential are starting to surface, he is not done growing and still getting use to his body, along with getting better his game and skills are getting smoother. Young Fella is now taking one step and dunking it like kids 4 years his superior, add the fact that young fella is  a great kid whom has always been respectable, polite and very coach-able and you now have the formula for something down the line that’s definitely “Problem Causer” While Jrhoopselite has Andre Casey Jr. as our #2 rated prospect in the class of 2022 he is one of several who has a chance to be special down the line and a kid whom I get 5-10 calls per week inquiring about. We would like to acknowledge Andre Casey Jr. As our Promising Prospect #31 ” A Problem Causer”
