Elite 80 Expo Profile: Jordan Forehand

Name: Jordan Forehand

Position: Shooting Guard

HT: 6’0

Hometown: Bridgewater, NJ

AAU Team: Hoop Heaven

Strengths: Jordan is a great athlete and has some take over the game characteristics. He drives to the cup and finishes better than most in this class. Forehand’s leaping ability allows him to get his shot off over many shot blockers. He also has the strength to absorb contact while in traffic and still finish off the play. On defense he moves his feet well and goes hard on the glass for caroms. Good Potential.

Areas of Improvement: Jordan needs to shoot between 500 and 1000 jump shots a day. Not only will this improve his accuracy but it will also give his confidence in his outside. This improvement will make his penetration game even more deadly. It also would keep the defenders honest. He also will need to work on his decision making because he most likely will play some point guard on the next level.
