“Talented and Fearless!!”

Vernon Henry

Vernon Henry 2022- Here is a big slashing combo guard who can give you buckets in a hurry, playing alongside 2 other big time guards Mikey Brown & Lamont Johnson sometimes people get it confused as too each ones individual talent. Young Fella has in several instances went on double figure scoring runs and specializes in beating his man off the dribble and putting them in the bucket, where many kids will have  the challenge of dealing with the physicality of the high school game, here is a kid whose transition shouldn’t be that difficult. Young Fella has put in some major work this season and people are definitely taking notice. Young Fella is also a player whose heart is as big as anyone in the class, he is fearless and another one of the players who wants to compete with the best as he figures every-time he steps on the court he is the best player. Vernon Hill is a competitor who Jr Hoops Elite will definitely be keeping close tabs on and one we see making an impact on the next level.

” Your Time Is Coming!!”

Khalil Morgan

Khalil Morgan 2022- Sometimes you see a kid and you say ” Yep!! When His Body Catch Up!!!” well that’s definitely what I said the first time I saw young fella. Wrap around dribble pull-up jump-shot basket, cross a defender over finish with a floater basket, dribble penetration kick out for a 3 point shot to his teammate assist, all on successive possessions as the game first started ” who is that? I ask a parent” I was about to leave now I have to stay a watch the game. Yep and then I came back to get another look. Khalil Morgan is a kid who is multi skilled, yet very slight in frame and yep he has a baby face so he wouldn’t strike you by sheer sight as one of those players who has his type of game, a elusive pg with handles who can score quickly or break his defender down and set up his teammate. While sometimes at this level kids can bruise their way to the whole on the next level it’s more space and more skilled is needed. Young Fella is a player Jr Hoops Elite will be keeping close tabs on as we think once his size and strength catches up with his skill set many will be in trouble.

” Gives His All !!”

Jamal Keyes

Jamal Keyes 2022- Here is a kid who plays as hard as anyone on the court, here is a kid who will do whatever asked of him on the court, here is a  kid who ask ” coach was that ok? or what should I have done” Yes Jamal is a player who gets better each and every-time he steps on the floor as he is continually picking up the nuances of the game. Young Fella specializes in knocking down the long range 3pt shot, when his feet is set he is a kid I would want taking the game winning shot as he has ice-water in his veins and is not bashful or scared of the moment, while young fella appears to be a late bloomer, he is a kid we see being much better down the road and a kid we see that when he gets in high school he will be much better because he will have a certain system he will run year after year and he will become familiar and comfortable and  the more comfortable he is the more dangerous he is. One thing a coach can count on with young fella is ” He Gives You Every Things He’s Got.

Top 5 Back-courts In The State

#4 Terry Elias & Ahmad Henderson

Ahmad Henderson & Terry Elias

Ahmad Henderson & Terry Elias- Are both guards capable of going on runs and putting a team on their backs individually, I have witnessed both go on scoring binges where they put up 25-30 in a game. but what makes them one of the better back-courts is either can bring it up and either can play on the wing. Terry is an attack first guard who gets to the rim at will and finishes in traffic, his perimeter game is getting better and better as he is attempting the 3pt shot without hesitation and Ahmad who is one of the best shooters in the state with range that extends out to N.B.A. range and is one of the few smaller guards in the state who knows how to play without the ball in his hands, he moves without the ball and has that quick release. These two fit well together and come in right now as our number #4 back-court in  the state.

 

#5 Donavan Dyrd & Toby Onyeknowu

Toby Onyeknowu 2022 & Donavan Byrd 2022- Are a dynamic duo who gets the job done. Donavan is a heady pg who controls the pace of the game, he can play uptempo pushing the ball or he can slow it down and dissect a defense, young fella never seems to let the situation of the game rush him into anything he doesn’t want to do, he’s a coach on the floor and Toby is a scoring guard known for his ability to knock it down from deep and score in bunches I have watched put 20 on the board in less than a half a few times, add the fact that young fella is stretching out, his ability to play the passing lanes and his defense has picked up. Both of these players have been known for hitting clutch shots during the travel and AAU seasons. These two form one of the best back-courts in the state and come in this segment as J.H.E. the #5 back-court in the State.

“Future Looks Bright!!!”

Brandon Jones

Brandon Jones 2022- Yep here is a player that spell potential and prospect, the long wiry combo guard has length and plays the passing lanes as well as anyone in the class. Throw any kind on cross court pass and young fella is picking it off and going the other way. BJ as known by many is one of the more versatile guards in the class and one who has the frame that spells better down the line. Young fella is slithery going to the basket, knocks down the 3 consistently when he feet is set and has one of the deadliest pull-up jump shots in the class. This is a prospect who people will be saying ” where did he come from? in two years. If and when young fella adds the strength and the will to compete every play needed a lot of people are in trouble. BJ will be at the Top Prospect Showcase Feb 24th and is looking too show everyone how he has progressed into being one of the better players in the class.

“Quietly Making A Name!!”

Terrance Jones III

Terrance Jones III 2022- Here is a young fella who has nice skills a player who is unassuming at times on the court but has a plethora of ways to put the ball in the basket. ” tre” as known by many can knock the 3 ball shot down with consistency, shoots the floater or pull-up well and has a handle on the ball that allows him to get by most defenders. Tre is a team first combo guard that the more he plays against top notch competition the better he will be. Look for young fella to make his debut in the 2022 updated rankings being released Thanksgiving. Also we look forward to watching young fella compete at the Top Prospect Showcase Feb 24th were many of the Top Players in the Midwest will be in attendance. Jr Hoops Elite  believes young fella is sometimes too unselfish and once he employs being more aggressive his game will take another level, here is a kid we will be making trips to see his progression and performance this winter no doubt.

“Cash Him Out!!”

Denim Juette

Denim Juette 2022 – There is a scorer in the western suburbs who has been giving people buckets for a very long time and is capable of erupting for 30 at any given time. Denim Juette is the player you want in a clutch situation a kid who is fearless when it comes to pressure of the moment. a kid that knows one thing ” put the ball in the bucket” yep he did it again in a rivalry game against Oak Park – Julian. In a hostile environment with the game going back and forth and Demetrius Dortch(31pts)  seemingly ripping up his team,  Denim was sent to the bench in the 3rd quarter after his coach apparently felt he was forcing things a little. Young Fella appeared a little frustrated as his team had lost the lead and trailed by 1, enter young fella back into the game. It’s 4th qaurter now and the fans are anxious Yep !! young fella knocks down a 3, he then gets a steal slices to the basket for a basket and a steal, then after another stop, young fella pulls up at the elbow, ” nothing but net. then after a turnover by Julian, and 2 minutes left the coach says slow it up no shot, Well Denim lets go a 24 foot 3 pt shot that swishes the net and sends the fans in a uproar. Game, Set, Match!!! young fella goes on a 12 point run by himself in 2 minutes and 28 seconds to close the game as Julian call time-out young fella run across the cousrt and yells  “THIS IS MY —–!!!

“A Coaches Dream!!!”

Eugene Brown

Eugene Brown- Here is a player that a coach can find no fault in, here is a kid who leaves it all on the floor, here is a kid who gives you everything he has in his body, Eugene is one of the toughest players in the class no doubt about it. young fella is a top 3 on ball defender who can guard 94 ft, he is a bull-dog driving to the lane and he is a developing leader on the court, but what makes young fella special is that he is a throw back,” lock up” I gotcha coach, ” what the hell was that” ” my bad coach” Run My Play!!!” “ok coach which side?” ” who told that boy to take that crazy shot? we up!!” ” hey yall slow it down” yep young fella never makes and excuse he never says anything back he wants to be coached, ” boy your jumpshot broke” can we get to the gym so I can get some jump-shots up? Yessss Indeed if any coach can find fault in this kids effort please let me know, here is a kid that any High School coach would welcome with open arms and a kid who I see as being very successful down the line in basketball and life. Look for Eugene at the Top Prospect Showcase Feb 24th as he will be looking to see who everyone thinks is the best guard as young fella feels he will shut down anyone. So people need to take notice shorty has locks.

” Silky Smooth”

 

Vijay Wallace

Vijay Wallace 2023- Yesssssss sirrr!!! here is a kid who is underrated and unknown by most, but that’s about change as Jr Hoops Elite sees young fella has an arsenal of offensive weapons to his disposal, he has a outside stroke that looks pretty coming out of his hands and more often than not goes in, while he is not lightning fast, young fella uses changes of speed and change of direction better than most and keeps his defender of balance. Vijay is a prospect who we see getting better and better the more he plays high level competition. Young Fella has the tools and Jr Hoops Elite will be paying close attention to young fella, he earned an invite to the Top Prospect Showcase Feb 24th with his play these past couple of months.
