After an impressive showing this weekend some sites have said that offers should start coming. Well, if they do their about 6 months late. As I reported back in July, Georgetown University swooped in the 24th hour and secured him. Beating out the school 30 minutes from his home St. Johns University. Kansas was also involved in his recruitment as well as many other programs. Jordan is an explosive, exciting player. Can weave his way to the rim and score in a variety of ways either with finesse or power. He can change games offensively with a ferocious dunk or a tremendous block on the defensive end. He needs to improve on his range but has a great work ethic and will absorb plenty from his hall of fame coach Patrick Ewing.

The old expression is just play and coaches will find you. It is never more true than this year. Hobart College found Pat and he will be an integral part of their program for 4 years. An athletic player with great ball-handling skills. He can get off his own shot off the bounce. Exceptional mid-range game. Great work ethic and is a winning type player. He can lead the team or do all the little things to get the win. Continues to add strength to help him at the next level.

If we get into the gyms and play games this year. Jack should be the new career leader in points at his high school. A pass-first player who can score at all three levels. Does everything well. Has committed to the University of Rochester. Late in the game, you can trust him with the ball in his hands make the right decision, and seal the victory at the charity stripe. Working on expanding his range.
Brian Blanchet. 5”10. 2022. North Babylon HS
Shot 40% last year from three. High IQ. Sees the floor really well. Makes the right decision with the ball in his hands. A heady player. Makes clutch shots. Not afraid to take the last shot. Needs to improve defensively.
Xavier Lewis. 5”9. 2022. Half Hollow Hills East HS
A pass-first guard with a tremendous pull-up game. Extremely quick off the bounce. Lightning-quick change of direction handle. Has the ability and court awareness to change speeds. Can get into the lane and score. Is improving on his overall defense. College programs should start checking in before it’s too late.
Malachi Moore. 6”2. 2022. Copiague HS
High basketball IQ. Tremendous court vision and awareness. Great work ethic. Rebounds well for his size. Can guard multiple positions. A very versatile player. Rising star, colleges need to look at.
