Jr. Elite Clinic Recap | Philadelphia


 

 

Thank you to everyone who attended our Philly Jr. Elite this past weekend. We had a great turnout among talented players, teams, and a thank you to our coaching staff that turned out for the event. Some of the top schools in attendance of our coaching staff were from St. Mary’s High School, Bryn Athyn College, and Eastern High school. Among the all the players in attendance, below are a few honorable mentions:

 

 

G.Q. Dominguez #50, 9th grader

G.Q.  used his athleticism and strength to dominate the event.  He has a high motor and was unstoppable in the open court, especially his average 14 points between both games. As a high school player, his quickness and ability to move with the ball will make him a stand out player on any high school court.

 

 

 

 

 

Zack White #49, 8th grader

Zack showed up to win this weekend at Philly. Standing as a 5’6 guard, Zack’s talent stands him above many of his peers, putting his game to a whole new level. What Zack did well this weekend was using his athleticism to break down defenders and finish at the basket or create space for himself to get an open shot. Zack finished both games with an average of 16 points.

 

 

 

 

 

Four Petre #15, 6th grader

Four impressed the coaches this weekend with his ability to handle the ball. Not only is Four able to break down his defenders, but he does a tremendous job as a point guard getting his entire team involved in the game. What the coaches loved most about Four ability to communicate with his teammates on the court. Looking forward to seeing Four’s grow in the upcoming season!

 

 

 

 

 

Ari Henderson #17, 5th grader

Ari  is an ultra-talented guard who plays for Reading Intermediate School.  As one of the youngest players at the event this weekend, he moves fluidly and can put the ball on the deck and finish from any spot on the floor. Here at the Hoop Group we are very excited to watch Ari grow and develop throughout the years with our program.

Player Highlights

Jack Savare

Jack Savare has a nice combo of size and speed. The 9th grade freshman at Red Bank Catholic is a skilled combo guard/wing and should be an impact player for RBC down the road.

Jeremiah Dorvilus

The St Mary’s 9th grader stood out for his knock down shooting. The sweet shooting wing knocked down 6 threes in the first game set today and will be a sniper for years to come.

AJ Walker

A 9th grader from Cherokee High School and South Jersey Elite AAU dominated with his overall play. With the combination of his skill set and court vision he is dangerous and able to score from anywhere on the court.

Nyle Coleman

The 2023 proved to be a “do it all guard” today and impressed with his overall technique and skill.

Bryson Brown

The Manhattan NYC native demanded evaluators’ attention with his ball handling and overall play. A young 2024 guard plays strong and is not afraid to get a little physical. Slasher with a step back jumper.

Jr. Elite Clinic Recap | NYC


 

Thank you to everyone who attended our NYC Jr. Elite. This event had a very talented young group that blew our coaching staff away and certainly held their own.

Our many coaches represented a few programs such as: Queen’s College, Messiah College, St. Francis Prep (Queens, NY), St. Peter’s Prep (Jersey City), Marist HS (New Jersey), St. Mary’s Elizabeth (New Jersey), Saddle River HS (New Jersey), Stroudsburg Hs (Pennsylvania) and East Orange HS (New Jersey).

Player Highlights

Jermel Thomas | 4th grade

A true NYC point guard! Jermel is one of the best 4th graders in the country and certainly in NYC. Jermel has an unbelievable ability to handle the basketball putting together series of crossover moves that made it almost impossible for defenders to stay in front not to mention he was the youngest player at the event. Besides his incredible ability to handle the rock Jermel is a natural playmaker always looking to get his teammates involved. Do not give Jermel to much space he also proved he could knock down some shots from beyond the arc. Keep a close eye out for Jermel he will be continuing to make noise around the city.

Kiyan Anthony | 5th grade

Kiyan is a very smart player with great court awareness. Kiyan is a very good shooter and showed it with his ability to knock down multiple 3 pointers. Kiyan’s ability to shoot is no surprise considering he is the son of NBA super star Carmelo Anthony. Kiyan also showed his ability to handle and pass the rock. Kiyan has a lot of potential and will be making some noise in the near future.

 Maurice Henderson | 7th gradeMaurice is a point guard with a very high basketball IQ. Maurice is great in transition and seems to always make the right play. He can attack the rim but also can step out and knock it down from the outside. Most importantly Maurice is a lockdown defender that gives opponents a very hard time.

 

Bryson Brown | 6th grade

Bryson is all business on the hardwood. This kid can do it all from handling the rock to shooting from 30 feet out with ease. Bryson is a quiet kid but his game speaks very loud and he shows great leadership. Bryson does not take plays off and gives 110% effort every time he steps on the court. Watch out for Bryson I believe we will hear a lot about this kid in the near future.

Karriem Thomas | 7th grade

Older brother of Jermel Thomas Karriem also a NYC point guard. Karriem played up with the 8th and 9th graders and did more then just hold his own. Karriem was able to handle the defensive pressure of the older guys with his tight handle and court awareness. Karriem has great court vision and was able to make plays for not only himself but all of his teammates. Karriem was able to use his quickness to blow by defenders and get to the rim and finish. Bright future ahead of both the Thomas brothers.

Jeremiah Peoples | 7th grade

Jeremiah is a silky smooth guard who has a knack for finishing around the rim. He can knock down shots from almost all parts of the court and is a high effective distributor that rarely turns the ball over.

 

 

 

Preston Edmead | 5th grade

Preston had a great showing in NYC impressing our evaluators with his ability to score. Preston can get in the lane and finish around the basket will both hands. For a young player he had great court vision and a very high basketball IQ.

Tyler Hawkins | 8th grade

Tyler is a very quick and strong guard with a tight handle and ability to get to the rim whenever he likes. Defenders had a hard time staying in front of the shifty guard as he sliced through the defense. Tyler can break a defender down with the dribble to get his own shot or to create for others. If Tyler’s outside shot improves he will be almost unguardable.

Noel Echivarra | 8th grade

Noel is undoubtedly one of the top 8th graders in NYC. At 6’2 Noel can do it all from handling the rock to guarding the biggest strongest guy on the court. What is most impressive is Noel’s play making ability. Noel is just as good off the ball as he is on the ball, he can knock down an open jumper as well as come off a ball screen and make the right read. If he keeps working hard this kid could be a real good high school player.

Jaheim Grant | 8th grade

Jaheim is a strong bruising guard that loves to play physical. He is a runaway train in transition that defenders do don’t want to get in the way of. What was most impressive about Jaheim was that he is a lockdown defender and can guard multiple positions.

Ronald Greene | 8th grade

Ronald is a beast! Ronald is a big wing that can do it all and has potential elite guard skills. He has a very tight handle with the court vision of a point guard. Ronald can attack the rim as well as step back and knock down the jumper. He showed great athleticism with high level blocks and plays at the rim. Ronald might have shown the most potential and upside at our event.

Isaac Santiago | 8th grade

Isaac Is a combo guard that can shoot the ball real well. In NYC he showed his ability to shoot from behind the arc. Isaac can also handle the ball and does a very good job getting his teammates involved. Every time he stepped on the court he played as hard as he could and did not take any plays off.

  

Abdul Doumbouya | 8th grade

Abdul is a combo that can do a little bit of everything. His lightning quick first step made it hard for guys to stay in front causing many defensive breakdowns. Abdul can get to the rim and finish with both hands equally as well. Abdul is not only an good offensive player but he is a lockdown defender and he gave problems to anyone he was guarding.

 

Jr. Elite Clinic Recap | DMV


Thank you to everyone who attended our DMV Jr. Elite. This event had a very talented younger group that blew our coaching staff away and certainly held their own. Our many coaches represented a few programs such as: Messiah College, St. John’s College, and Bethlehem High School.

Spotlight Coach

Jr Elite had over 10 coaches out to help put players through high intensity workouts, coach them in two game sets and provide them with a player evaluation at the end of camp.

Player Standouts

Darren Wright

A 9th grader that certainly proved he is ready for the varsity high school level. Whether it was crossing someone up, finishing at the rim or getting a stop on the defensive end, Darren is absolutely a play to watch in high school this year.

Chase Williams

A dangerous player that plays at a level higher than his age. Capable of producing in any situation the game throws at him, Chase is a future all star on the rise.

Isaiah Abraham

The Virginia native is explosive on the floor and one of the best athletes in the class of 2022. Isaiah’s ability to make big plays and knock down big time shots are what put him above those in his class.

Thurstan Davis

Thurstan used his athleticism and strength to dominate the event. Thurstan is unstoppable on the open court, between his handle and quickness, no one can stop him on the way to the rim. It will be exciting to continue to watch Thurstan grow in the game.

 Damontae Necols

A commander on the floor at such a young age, this fifth grader made you second guess his age. With his fluidity and vocalness on the floor, scoring buckets is just an added plus to his game. Damontae should be unstopable by the time he reaches high school.

Bigger Than Ball Vol.9 : B.J. Boston

This time last year, B.J. Boston was just another player from Georgia and virtually unknown to major basketball circles. After making it to the High School State Championship this past season and his play with 15u Georgia Stars on the EYBL circuit, B.J. started to blow up. A long and smooth wing,  he entered 2017 Future All American Camp an ESPN Top 15 player.  

MP—What NBA player do you model your game after?

B.J Boston—- Kevin Durant

 

 

MP—–What makes you different from the other top players in the country?

BB-I have a lot of confidence, I know how to score the ball

 

MP——What motivates you when you play?

BB—My mother, I do it for her.

 

MP–You are from Atlanta so I have to know, Migos or Gucci Mane?

BB–Oh, Migos all day.

 

MP—Who is your favorite migo?

BB—Ohh that’s a tough one. Quavo is the best migo, but Offset is the best rapper.

 

MP—-Best BBQ in Georgia?

BB—–Chicken no doubt, I have a lot of it

 

MP—Favorite NBA Legend and why?

BB–Michael Jordan. Nobody is stopping him.

 

MP—One Goal this year for you on the court?

BB–For school I am trying to win a state championship. Last year we got there, but we came up short

By my senior year I am trying to be the number one player in the country.

 

MP—If you did not play basketball, what would you play?

BB—Football. I’d be a quarterback.

 

MP–What is the toughest matchup you have had?

BB–I don’t know, I just blew up this year so I have faced a lot of good guys.

 

MP—What do you look to improve out on the court?

BB–I need to get stronger.

 

MP—What do you look to prove out on the court?

BB—I want to show that I AM the best.

 

MP–Describe your game in one word.

BB–Smooth.

 

The quiet Georgia native may be new to the spotlight, but he will not be leaving any time soon.

Bigger Than Ball Vol. 8 : Trey Patterson

Most of the 2021 class is just starting their young basketball careers. However, Trey Patterson is already on college coach’s radar. One of the top prospects in his class, Patterson’s 6’7” frame allows him to do a little bit of everything on the court. The young star holds offers from Rutgers and Wake Forrest, proving that much more is to come for the swingman.

 

 

MP-What NBA player do you model your game after?

Trey Patterson- I’d probably have to say maybe LeBron because he’s just an all-around team player, he can score the ball, he gets his team involved, and he plays a bunch of defense.

 

MP–What motivates you when you play?

TP–

Being one of the top kids in the country. It puts an extra target on my back. I have to play as hard as I can because there’s always someone after me.

MP-You play for Team Rio right?

TP–Yes.

 

MP-Being from NJ, we need to know. Is it Pork roll or Taylor Ham?

TP–Taylor Ham. No doubt.

 

MP–Favorite pre game song?

TP–Right now, Solo by Future.

 

MP–If you didn’t play basketball what would you play?

TP–I used to play football and baseball, so one of those.

 

MP–What is something you can improve on?

TP–I can always improve on my ball handling and my shooting, so those two things.

 

MP–What do you look to prove out on the court?

TP–That I am one of the BEST out here and that no one can stop me.

 

MP–Describe your game in one word

TP–Versatile.

 

The future is bright for this budding star from Rutgers Prep. Patterson knows how to go out and get the job done. He carries himself and plays the game beyond his years. Looking forward to seeing him develop.

 

Bigger Than Ball Vol. 7: Jalen Green

The mantra around California basketball in recent years has been that it’s all flash, no fire. That the players aren’t “tough enough”. When it comes to Fresno native Jalen Green, those words are never used. Jalen was recently named ESPN’s Class of 2020 #2 overall player. An absolute terror in transition, the 6’5’’ shooting guard from San Joaquin Memorial High School is an athletic force. Green not only has good body control, but a tight handle on the ball and array of moves to compliment his game. Green brought home a gold medal with the USA U16 National Team. We had a chance to catch up with Jalen at Future All American Camp.

MP—What NBA player do you model your game after

JALEN GREEN—-I model my game after Kevin Durant.

 

MP—–Best part of your game?

JG-Probably attacking, getting to the cup.

 

MP—What part needs the most improvement?

JG—I’d say shooting, defense, my offense in the half court things like that.

 

MP—Favorite Athletic Achievement to date

JG—-On the court? *Laughs* probably hitting a between the legs something like that.

 

MP—-What motivates you when you play?

JG—–Always having a chip on my shoulder. I WANT to get buckets, I want to be the best player out here.

 

MP—-What was it like playing for team USA

JG—-

It was great experience, I can tell you that. All the people that are out there, all the top players in the country playing against them competing for a spot. It’s fun.

 

MP—-Biggest pregame ritual

JG—-I like to eat junk food. *Laughs*. Skittles or Starbursts or something.

 

MP–Favorite twitter or Instagram follow

JG—-Probably Ball is Life, they always have videos up there.

 

MP—Of you?

JG—*Laughs* Sometimes.

 

MP–Toughest matchup you’ve had

JG—Either Nico (Mannion) or Josh Green, or Jalen Suggs. They’re always aggressive, they take no plays off. It’s always a battle.

 

MP–If you didn’t/couldn’t play basketball, what sport play

JG–Football. I’d be a receiver for sure.

 

MP–What’s the thing you look to prove the most when out on the court?

JG–That being from Cali doesn’t matter.

https://twitter.com/TheHoopGroup/status/893278240525111298

(A little proof from earlier today he was not kidding)

 

MP—One word to describe you as a basketball player.

JG—BUCKET.

 

The future is bright for the young gunner from California, and he is hungry to bring the bark back to the West.
