After a rollercoaster of a basketball season in 2021 has ended, the majority of basketball players have already chosen their next home. With NY, there is such a wide variety of talent with multiple D1, D2, D3, and JUCO players looking to make an impact next year. However, the commit season hasn’t wrapped up, as some players are still making their decisions. Today, we take a look at some of NY’s 2021 best available.
The quick point guard from Xaverian,is reportedly still being courted by a number of JUCO teams. The point guard was stellar this season for Xaverian, proving that speed wins games as he covered all 92 feet of the floor en route for a semi-surprising championship run for Xaverian. Every college team has room for a good point guard who can defend and push the pace, so don’t expect Fulcher to remain on the market for very long.
| Brooklyn Collegiate
This past COVID shortened PSAL summer season,had one final chance to prove how he was a Division I talent, and Allen made no mistake in turning on. In six games this year, Allen scored 34, 25, 20, 25, 40, and 74 points. Yes, 74 points. Allen is reportedly down to his final three and will most likely make a decision this week, and it’s no doubt whichever program lures Allen will be lucky to have him.
Dillon Hod | Scotland Campus
Originally from New York, Dillon Hod decided to take another year of basketball for JUCO D1 at Scotland Campus. Since then, he has done nothing to impress, and is now on the hunt to play more basketball at a higher level. Hod is a muscular 6’5 guard who is able to simply body his way into the paint and score, and his strength does opponents no favors on defense as well. His court vision and awareness are stellar, and his shooting is something that all opponents have to look out for.
O’Zhell Jackson | Olympus Prep
Jackson is in the same position as Hod, reclassifying and going from NY’s Stevenson to Olympus Prep to further focus on basketball. Jackson is remarkably underrated, still available even after being only one year removed from a second-team all-state selection. Jackson has length and is able to defend well, and is also able to generate offense and penetrate to the rim, something every program cannot have enough of.
Todd Rochelle | St. Francis Prep
Earlier, we had a poll asking for NY’s best point guard, and Todd Rochelle had the talent to come in second. Rochelle has the speed, playmaking, and scoring ability to possibly lead not just any high school team in the country, but probably a good amount of college teams as well. As programs look to finalize their rosters, there is no doubt Rochelle will find a home, either by reclassifying or becoming a late roster addition.
