Basketball Spotlight Elite 80 Expo Preview: Central Jersey Version

The Basketball Spotlight Elite 80 Expo is coming next weekend at Hoop Group Headquarters and should be an action packed event. The top talent in the Northeast will be on hand to showcase their skills in front of Basketball Spotlight and other analyst. Here’s breakdown of some of the top talent that will be in the building.

Central Jersey Ballers Looks To Impress

Jordan Forehand Guard (Bridgewater, NJ)- Forehand is probably one of the most anxious players in the Garden State to show his skills at this event. If the Adidas Jr. Phenom Camp is any indication then the rest of the field better look out. Jordan’s strong play especially going towards the basket is hard to defend on this level. He plays the game with serious intent and usually has positive results. This might be the regional coming out party.

Trevis Wyche Guard (Neptune, NJ)- The long time floor general for the Fliers is back running his club and should be ready to show his worth at the Expo. When Watching Wyche expect a high pace tempo and few mistakes when he running the show. He has excellent court vision and will can the open jumper if left open.

Drew Corsi Guard (Rumson, NJ)- Another point guard that needs to introduction is Corsi. He spent many years dazzling the crowd and shaking defenders with his wizardry ball handling for the Bayshore Bulldogs. He also can black out from behind the arc as he showed on a few occasions this season.

Darrian Collins Guard (South River) – Speaking of shooters look for further than Collins. The combo guard has a sweet stroke and can tickle the twine in bunches. His low center of gravity make him difficult to strip and his basketball IQ stands out on this level.

Jahad Harris Forward (Linden, NJ)- Harris is an undersized monster on the blocks. He has decent moves in the paint and isn’t afraid to throw his body around to create space. Jahad should be ready to make his mark in the Garden State. He plays for the Ballers so you know he will be ready.

Bryan Rivers Guard (West Windsor, NJ)- I like what I saw from Rivers at the Hoop Group Jr. Elite Camp. He has good size for a guard and has some swagger to his game. Bryan can handle the pill with either hand and finish in traffic. He is still under the radar right now but that might change this weekend.

Chad Mordecai Guard (New Brunswick, NJ)- If you like small guards with slick ball handling then Chad’s your man. Mordecai changes directions with the best of them and loves delivering the rock to teammates for easy buckets. He did his thing at the Hoop Group Jr. Elite Camp but the comp here might be a little stiffer.
