Nice look into the background of 2017 target Lonnie Walker.


4/24 Updates
Good to see JB not miss a day of the live period so far. The PSA Cards(Green, Bamba, Randolph) vs Team Final(Walker and Reddish) is on deck.

Lonnie Walker is putting on a show so far and Brandon Randolph might be the best pure shooter that I've seen in EYBL play.

Cameron Reddish is really starting to fill out.Has grown to 6'7 and is still fluid w/guard skills.

Underrated aspect about Quade Green's game is that his mid-range pull up is quite nice as well. Very good 3 level scorer.

May have seen two of the best open floor players in consecutive classes in Josh Jackson/Hamidou Diallo that we've seen in several years

Team Final G Lonnie Walker (): 20 PTS, 3 AST, 2 REB in a win over PSA Cardinals

Team Final G Cameron Reddish (): 10 PTS, 5 AST, 4 REB, 3 STL in a win vs Team United

PSA Cardinals G Brandon Randolph () scores 16 PTS vs Team Final

PSA Cardinals G Quade Green (): 12 PTS, 10 AST, 4 REB, 2 STL vs Team Final

JB closing out the live period checking out Hami Diallo and Jordan Tucker. Both reportedly might visit late in the month

Expressions Elite G Kimani Lawrence (): 16 PTS, 11 REB vs MOKAN

Expressions Elite F Nick Richards (): 18 PTS, 12 REB vs MOKAN

NY RENS G Hamidou Diallo (): 20 PTS, 5 REB vs Spiece

NY RENS G Jordan Tucker (): 14 PTS, 4 REB vs Spiece

CIA Bounce F Simi Shittu (): 13 PTS, 6 REB in a win over All Ohio

6'10" 2018 5-Star Simi Shittu of & has received an offer from

ESPN 60 Jordan Tucker plans to take a visit to Indiana tomorrow and Syracuse next weekend. Maryland expected to visit him this week.

Quade Green has started the 2016 EYBL season with 10+ assists in each of ' first 7 games. Safe to say he has himself a record.


4/23 Updates

Jimmy B up early to check out Hami Diallo once again. JB not backing away from this one so far.

Hameir Wright was tremendous for City Rocks in a big win over Meanstreets

Albany City Rocks F Hameir Wright (): 16 PTS, 9 REB in a win over MeanStreets

Nice win for The Rens. Solid game for Hami Diallo, but Jordan Tucker had his best overall game that I've seen him play in.

Expressions Elite F Nick Richards (): 11 PTS, 6 REB in a win over Oakland Soldiers

NY RENS G Hamidou Diallo (): 15 PTS, 5 REB, 4 AST in a win over RM5 Elite

NY RENS G Jordan Tucker (): 19 PTS, 8 REB, 4 AST in a win over RM5 Elite

CIA Bounce F Simi Shittu (): 17 PTS, 6 REB vs Nike South Beach

Jimmy B is now checking out the PSA Cardinals. The Cards features Quade Green, Mo Bamba, and Brandon Randolph.

Quiet game mostly for Q. Green, but he knocked down a bunch of FT's late to close out the game in a win. 2019 PG Cole Anthony was terrific.

PSA Cardinals (NY) F Mo Bamba (): 12 PTS, 12 REB, 3 BLK in a in over LV Prospects

PSA Cardinals (NY) G Brandon Randolph (): 11 PTS, 2 REB in a win over LV Prospects

Team Final G Cameron Reddish (): 21 PTS (7-7 FT), 7 STL, 4 AST, 3 REB vs Indy Heat

Team Final G Lonnie Walker (): 17 PTS, 5 AST, 2 REB, 2 STL vs. Indy Heat

Top-25 junior Lonnie Walker said Villanova is the school recruiting him the hardest. "By far."

Long term, very few 2018’s have the upside of F Jalen Smith. Can hurt you inside & out. Big Maryland target.

Really hard to matchup up with Bradon Slater and Myles Dread. Both are athletic wings equally comfortable distributing and scoring

Pretty impressive the role acceptance of Quade Green. Double digit assists in every eybl game thus far. Averaging close to 11 this spring

Not many more sturdy at the pg spot than Jahvon Quinerly. 2018 knows how to run a team. So savvy and mature with his approach to the game

It's easy to see why Jahvon Quinerly is sought-after in 2018. Can beat his defender and finish, make shots -- but also can run a team.

JB is now checking out Hameir Wright putting in work again for the Albany City Rocks.

Wright hit the game winning bucket over a 7-footer that is a UConn commit. JB needs to offer asap just for that alone lol.

Disgusting poster by Simi Shittu, put it on defenders head

CIA Bounce F Simi Shittu (): 18 PTS (8-10 FG), 6 REB, 3 BLK in a win over Stampede

Albany City Rocks F Hameir Wright (): 16 PTS, 5 REB, 3 BLK in a win vs Nike South Beach

JB now closing out the night checking out the heavyweight match between the PSA Cards(Q. Green, Bamba, and Randolph) vs MOKAN(Mike Porter)

HT score PSA Cardinals leads Mokan 36-24 2017 6'6" Brandon Randolph is having a nice 1st half for PSA

Offense of 4-star SG Brandon Randolph was story of first half. His 14 helped PSA build 12 point lead over MoKan

Hami Diallo just went the full length of the court with 5 secs left down 2 to send the game into OT.

Munch Williams draws up a beautiful inbounds play which leads to a Brandon Randolph triple. PSA leads 71-66 as MOKAN begins to foul.

Team Final G Lonnie Walker (): 18 PTS, 5 AST, 3 REB in a win over Team United

Team Final G Cameron Reddish (): 14 PTS, 4 AST, 2 REB, 2 STL in a win vs Team United

Jalen Smith | 6"8 Mt. St. Joseph's had an impressive weekend | agile shot blocker | strong finisher and rebounder

PSA Cardinals F Mo Bamba (): 11 PTS, 14 REB in a win over MOKAN Elite

PSA Cardinals G Quade Green (): 15 PTS, 12 AST in a win over MOKAN Elite

PSA Cardinals G Brandon Randolph (): 21 PTS, 3 REB, 2 AST in a win over MOKAN Elite

NY RENS G Hamidou Diallo (): 19 PTS, 6 REB, 2 AST in a win over St. Louis Eagles

PSA Cardinals G Brandon Randolph (): 28 PTS, 5 REB in a win over RM5 Elite

PSA Cardinals G Quade Green (): 14 PTS, 14 AST, 3 STL in a win over RM5 Elite

ESPN 60 PG Quade Green went for 14 points and 14 assists tonight. Duke, Syracuse, Xavier, Maryland all visited him this week. Stock rising.

Jimmy B closing out the night checking out 5 star big man, Nick Richards.

 
Expressions Elite F Nick Richards (): 13 PTS, 6 REB in a win over Phoenix Phamily
