NJ Baby Ballers Represent At Adidas Jr. Phenom Camp

Harris Finished Ranked #1 At Adidas Jr. Phenom

Three Baby Ballers from NJ took the trip to San Diego, California for the Adidas Jr. Phenom Camp and represented the Garden State to the fullest. There were over 120 players in their age group and all 3 players finished ranked in the Top 20 and played in the All Star Game. Here’s a breakdown of the rankings.

Jamir Harris (Piscataway, NJ)- Harris the powerful forward for the #3 Team in the land stormed the camp and finished as the #1 rising 6th Grader in the entire camp. This experience should catapult Jamir’s play next season and I’m looking forward to seeing the added swagger. Good Job Kid!

Tyus Battle (Edison, NJ)- Battle played center during this camp and got a wealth of experience crashing the glass. His talent was still apparent as he finished ranked #9 overall for his grade level. Battle also learned the importance of rewarding the big man first hand.

Tyler Jones (Lawrenceville, NJ)- The point guard actually was listed as a wing forward and had to do much damage because he ended the camp ranked #13 overall. His confidence also should be through the roof when the new season starts.

We would like to congratulate these youngsters on their success and remind them to keep working hard because this is only the beginning.
