The upcoming live weekend is huge as prospects around the country are looking to impress coaches. Jersey Force had a practice yesterday to get ready for the event as several players stood out, especially in the 17U session. Here are the 17U standouts from the Jersey Force practice sessions.
Peguero stood out throughout the practice and is a good addition for the 17U HGSL team. He is a big-time leaper as he elevated for dunks with ease. Peguero showed off a good release on his jumper and shoots the ball with confidence. He moved well off the ball and pushed the ball up the floor nicely during the transition drills. Peguero is an athletic wing prospect who should have a big weekend at Pittsburgh.
Hearns had a standout practice as he wowed throughout. He is a high-flyer as he threw down several highlight dunks, including a 360-windmill. Hearns has a quick first step, which he uses to blow by his defender and get to the rim. He skied for rebounds on both ends of the floor and has the athleticism to defend multiple positions. Hearns should turn heads this weekend with his athleticism for the Jersey Force 17U HGSL team.
Weise had a solid showing as he showed his ability to effectively run the offense for the HGSL team. He has a good handle and was not sped up during the scrimmage sessions. Weise played with his head up and was able to find his teammates in good spots throughout the practice. He finished nicely around the basket and has a nice release on his jumper. Weise will be the floor general for the Jersey Force this weekend in Pittsburgh, which should help his stock in a big way.
Pit showed off his all-around skillset at practice yesterday as he looks to be a key part of the HGSL’s offense. He has a smooth shooting stroke and did not rush his jumpers. Pit attacked the basket hard and threw down a couple of nice dunks during the practice. He set good screens in the half court and ripped down rebounds on both ends of the floor. Pit’s ability to stretch the floor and play on the perimeter is something that will help his stock in a big way at Pittsburgh.
Torres practiced early with the 16U HGSL team with 17U Diller, but he was still able to make an impact. He was an absolute force on the boards as he was constantly getting offensive rebounds and second chance opportunities for his team. Torres moved well off the ball, creating open layups and jumpers for himself. He did a good job on the defensive end and used his body to defend in the post. Torres is a hard-working glue guy that will do whatever it takes to help his team win.
