Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic Baby Ballers Top Performers Part 1
John Jackson Guard (Silverbacks National)- One of my favorites guards in this event. He seems to always make the correct plays which are winning ones. He stepped in the clutch as always to helped them defeat the NY Gauchos in the championship. Jackson always seems to find the winners circle.
Zach Schweid Guard (Silverbacks National)- Zach is a do it all guard in the mode of Damon Bailey. Which means he can score with ease or set his teammates up as simple. His basketball IQ is at a very high rate. We will be keeping an eye on him.
Jebron Harris Forward (NJ Bulldogs)- Harris was the biggest player on his squad but played the point most of the weekend. He displayed got ball handling and court vision to pick apart double teams. He continues to show his movement towards the wing. He has the basketball deep in genes.
Omar Gonzalez Forward (845 Elite)- Gonzalez is an athletic big who was a commanding presence in the middle. He displayed great footwork and touch. On the other side of the court he has defensive awareness, solid rebounder, and good outlet passer.
Chris Suber Guard (NY Gauchos)- Silky smooth point guard that runs the show with the pace and the poise of a much older player. He doesn’t play for or pass for the crowd but instead makes the pass that puts his guys in position to score. A true floor general.
Sharif Jackson Forward (Team Jacko)- This skilled big man passes the ball well out of the post. He already understands how to use his size to his advantage over smaller defenders. When the kid develops he will become a vocal point of any teams half court offense.
Luke Schorr Guard (NJ Shore Shots)- The kid with the Golden Locks has a deadly game. I fell in love with his ball skills and understanding his penetration and kick game. He also possesses a killer jump shot which he will shoot it from anywhere.
