A lot of things are going on around the AAU world right now. So we decided to hit a couple of our sources and bring you another “Word On The Street”. Remember most of this information is not concrete as of yet but mostly from the rumor mill.
National Champs Break UP?
My sources from the Carolina’s have reported that the Reigning 12U National Champions South Carolina Ravens are no more. Apparently standouts Ty Graves, Keenan “The Problem” Black and Madison Cone will return home to North Carolina to play with the CB Spiders. It looks like the CB Spiders will have to be one of the favorites to take home the national crown this year in Memphis.
Men In Black Are Back?
Coach Cole ended the speculation and has announced that his F.A.C.E.S. squad that dismantled a last season are back together and looking for redemption. The Philly Boys (Taylor and Jolaoso) have returned and scoring guard Trey Lowe has also returned from NJ Got Game. This group will be playing in the Grand Finale and I know they will bring out the black uniforms.
My Big Apple sources have told me that Coach Steve Harris formerly of the Gauchos has decided to bounce from the Choz and form his independent squad named Harlem Elite. I know if Steve is involved he will bring serious energy to this squad. I also hear that his first major pickup will be Shamorie Ponds. Things could really get interesting for Steve and his crew. We will keep you posted as this develops.
