Mike Silverthorn Is Blair Academy Bound!

Mike Silverthorn the #1 prospect in the Garden State has decided to attend Blair Academy. Blair Academy is known as an excellent institution and has produced some top notch talent including NBA Players Charlie Villanueva and Loul Deng. Blair’s coach Joe Mantegna in his 11th year is excited about Silverthorn’s arrival. “I think Mike can help out program because he can shoot the rock, has a high basketball IQ and remains humble. Which means he wants to get better” said Joe. Mike currently travels the circuit with the Juice All Stars and has made his presence felt at events such as Grand Finale, Clash For The Cup and AAU Super Regionals in Hampton, Virginia.

Regardless of these praises and accolades Mantegna sees room for improvement in Silverthorn. “I feel he needs to work defense and his ability to put the rock on the floor. If he’s willing to work like I believe he does he can accomplish those goals with our program” Mantegna finished. Basketball Spotlight would like to congratulate Mike and his family for his acceptance to this elite institution. We wish him the best of luck in the future.

Stay tune as Basketball Spotlight will feature more high school choices by the Class of 2014.
