AAU Sprint:
Nike GBBall
It is really a shortcoming on the part of Nike Girls Elite Youth Basketball to sponsor a club team program classify them as tier two then not invite this particular club team or their 15U squad to the Nike Nationals Event.Sponsoring Twenty-five plus club teams are too many for Nike to adequately commit to.

The NCAA has killed the college recruiting process for prospects on a whole by shortening the viewing periods. Student-athletes do not get to experience the process of being recruited.

The NCAA travel club border regulation rules takes away from the esthetic of AAU travel ball.The fiber of summer basketball is beginning to become watered down and mundane.

NCAA Universities athletic directors really need to put an onus on shoring up the women’s basketball head coaching position.Forty plus openings is a very sad epidemic.Our prospective young ladies deserve better stability and structure in place in-so-far as the head women’s basketball coach position.

This gives all three prospects a chance to learn how to to play without the basketball.King has great ass coaches in former Boston College Standout Clare Droesch and Asia Petty a California native and former standout guard at Howard University.

Blacktop Prospects:Brianna Jones 5-11 2015 NY

brianna jones


Jones is the ideal wing guard prospect,great size at 5-foot-11 solidly built spry and athletic.She has a go-to move in a dribble-drive into a medium range well elevated pull-up jump shot,with this advanced offensive concept it enables her to be very effective in a half-court set as well as in transition.Jones will elevate herself to an even higher echelon as a prospect if she can utilize more dribble drives to punish defenders and finish at the rim. Jones plays for North Babylon HS on long Island,NY coached by former St Johns University women’s basketball legend Debbie Brajevich.
