Word On The Street: Bankrupt!

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 some of this information is from reliable sources including those directly involved.
“The Bank” Is Closed? 

Reports out of The Big Apple has #2 13U Milbank breaking up. According to a source inside the program Coach Rodney has decided to take Paul Person, Keshaun Ellis, Hayes Kechner and Sean Morris out of the program and move to another camp. My source also indicated that the direction of the program was the main reason in their departure. They also indicated that tough guard Tyrese Whitaker is on the fence and but might end up joining the rest of the players that have departed. Expect another announcement soon about where this group might land.
Harge Leaves NC Rising Prospect?

 The report out of Carolina is that point guard Damon Harge has decided to end his short tenure with NC Rising Prospect 13U squad. Harge became well known through the camp circuit and recently playing varsity basketball as a 6th Grader. It will be very interesting to see where he lands. This could be a major coup for another squad in NC especially if he decides to play 12U basketball.
Is Wall 2 Wall For Real? 

 Before the AC Showcase I got an email from a team from Allentown, PA claiming to be the real deal. This team was Wall 2 Wall and once they came to the AC Showcase they proved to be too much for the Blue Division. Currently they have qualified for the Mid Atlantic Final Four after defeating some good teams including #7 East Coast Elite. Is this squad ready for the primetime? We shall see very soon.
