Super Skillcase Profile: Isaiah Brown (New Milford, NJ)

Name: Isaiah Brown 

Position: Combo Guard 

Class: 2024 

Hometown: New Milford, NJ 

Breakdown: Brown is a skilled ball handler that lives to get in the lane. Once inside he converts with floaters and scoop shots. I would like to see him trust his teammates a little more by adding some drive and kick to his game. Otherwise he looks to be an impact guard on the 7th Grade level.

Super Skillcase Profile: Tyonna Bailey (Newark, NJ)

Name: Tyonna Bailey 

Position: Shooting Guard 

Class: 2023 

Hometown: Newark, NJ

Breakdown: Bailey is very skilled in terms of ball handling and finishing with both hands. She has a strong frame so she knows how use it to score on taller shot blockers. She knows her why around floor and performed well even when she was moved to the boys division.

Super Skillcase Profile: Montique Nedd (Ridgefield, NJ)

Name: Montique Nedd 

Position: Point Guard 

Class: 2023 

Hometown: Ridgefield, NJ 

Breakdown: This lefty possesses get dribble moves when attacking defenders. His go to move was a hesitation crossover which allowed him to get into the lane whenever he wanted. He scored with some pretty layups. I don’t know who he plays AAU for but someone needs to pick him up.

Super Skillcase Profile: Jahmir Smith (Galloway, NJ)

Name: Jahmir Smith 

Position: Shooting Guard 

Class: 2023 

Hometown: Galloway, NJ 

Breakdown: What impressed me about this guard was his strength, leaping ability and rebounding effort. He posted up smaller guards and jumped over them for buckets. On defense he was able to steer ball handlers wherever he wanted. He’s a little under the radar now but that’s not for long.

Super Skillcase Profile: Luke Schorr (Rumsom, NJ)

Name: Luke Schorr 

Position: Combo Guard 

Class: 2025 

Hometown: Rumson, NJ 

Breakdown: Schorr is a scrappy guard that not only can hit the outside shot but can also drive the ball and create plays. I’ve seen his game grow over the last few events he has attended and he had this confidence on full display at the Super Skillcase. He was in attack mode and looked very comfortable on the floor.

Super Skillcase Profile: Keion Elliott (Egg Harbor, NJ)

Name: Keion Elliott 

Position: Point Guard 

Class: 2023 

Hometown: Egg Harbor, NJ 

Breakdown: Elliott had an attacking style off the dribble that helped him get in the lane. He knew how to create separation from defenders and create plays for himself and teammates. I also think he has a few inches to add to his frame which would make him a more intriguing prospect.

Super Skillcase Profile: Shaun Purvy (Souderton, PA)

Name: Shaun Purvy 

Position: Point Guard 

Class: 2023 

Hometown: Souderton, PA

Breakdown: Picture former 76ers point guard Eric Snow. Purvy is very efficient, takes good care of the rock and doesn’t turn the pill over. He ran the show and looked good in the pick and roll type offense. On the other side of the ball he moved his feet week and gave a great effort.

Super Skillcase Profile: Troy Buxton (Forked River, NJ)

Name: Troy Buxton 

Position: Combo Guard  

Class: 2023 

Hometown: Forked River, NJ 

Breakdown: Buxton had good size for his position and played with some flair to his game. His confidence spilled over to the scoring column also as he was able to get some buckets. I think he surprised a few defenders with his ability to attack and his array of dribble moves.

Super Skillcase Profile: Jaedon Harris (Triangle, VA)

Name: Jaedon Harris 

Position: Combo Guard 

Class: 2023 

Hometown: Triangle, VA 

Breakdown: The guard was shifty and quicker than he looks. I like his mid-range pull up and his extended range. He maneuvered around defenders with a low dribble. He took the drive up from Virginia and didn’t waste his money.

Super Skillcase Profile: Kabrian Goss (Trenton, NJ)

Name: Kabrian Goss 

Position: Point Guard 

Class: 2024 

Hometown: Trenton, NJ 

Breakdown: When Goss jump shot is falling like it was at Sportika it makes him difficult to contain. It draws the defense out and gives him more room to attack. When he gets that room, he uses his explosive drives to get to the rim. On defense he moved his feet well and caused some turnovers.

Super Skillcase Profile: Ryan Bisono (Bronx, NY)

Name: Ryan Bisono 

Position: Point Guard 

Class: 2023 

Hometown: Bronx, NY 

Breakdown: In an event where most players are trying to score points Bisono used this showcase to show off his passing skills. He threaded the needle on several occasions while hitting teammates on the dime. His slick handle kept defenders guessing and his teammates were helping running with this kid.
