Compiling this list was a lot of work but a lot of fun. This league still produces some of the best talent in all of the country. Players in this group 18-13 really are basically the same in talent. The difference between #18-13 would be what you are looking for, if you are a college program. But whoever you are getting is an extremely gifted player.
18 Jaden Pena 6”6. 2021. Xaverian HS
A wing player who you can run your offense through. A multidimensional player. Can score with both hands inside. Attacks the offensive glass. Tremendous rebounder. Very smart defensive player.
17 Tariek Foster 6”6. 2022. Cardinal Hayes HS
Has all the tools. Excellent skill set. Great frame. Real nice touch from the outside. Very high ceiling. Could move up this list pretty quick.
16 Christian Bliss 6”2. 2023. Molloy HS
Coach feels he is still growing. Great skillset already, so if he does continue to grow he will have guard skills with added height. Old school savvy player. He understands the game. Tremendous passer and can flat out score. A tremendous talent who could very well crack the top 10 by seasons end.
15 Orlando Wallace 6”9 2022. Iona Prep Hs
Hurt last season and still has D1 offers. Played on Jamaica’s under 16 team. Very active player. Knows how to use his body. Tremendous rebounder. Scores with both hands. Runs the floor extremely well. Rim protector.
14. 6”4. 2021. Fordham Prep HS
When you have a player with Ryans talent come in at #14, it confirms the immense talent in the City. Ryan can do it all. Defensively he is sneaky quick, getting his hands in for deflections that leads to steals and buckets. Offensively he is a lights out shooter from three. Can also take it to rim. Very good first step which usually ends with a nice floater. Excellent student on and off the court. Coach likes to have the ball in his hands at the end off games. He is automatic from the few throw line.
13 Noah Best 6”5. 2022. Mount St. Michael HS
A long player. Uses his length well on defense. Really good rebounder. Excellent ball handler on the wing and a terrific passer. The offers and interest in him have been blowing up. We expect it to continue especially when we start playing again.
