Tarif has shown considerable improvement since the last showcase. He did an excellent job handling pressure for some of the bigger, stronger guards. His ability to consistently knock down open shots was extremely impressive. What Jackson lacks in size he makes up for with his shot making ability.
Reggie Thompson Soph. Guard Middletown NJ
The first impression one may have of Reggie is that of a power guard. While he is considerably strong, he displayed a velvet touch from behind the 3 point stripe. Heâ€™s such a good long range shooter that he relies on it a bit too much. When he learns to mix it up a little more heâ€™ll be even more dangerous.

Derrick Flash Gordon is a blur in transition, especially when it comes to filling lanes. Heâ€™s a strong finisher and slasher whoâ€™ll surprise you with his ability to rebound the ball and punish smaller defenders on the block. He may have been the best defender in the camp and his improving outside shot should make him one of NJâ€™s best before itâ€™s all said and done.
Chase Plummer 5 Soph. Forward St. Patrick Elizabeth NJ
Since making the transition to a wing forward, Plummer has shown some flashes of settling in to that slot. He looked very comfortable from 17-19ft out (shooting and handling the ball) and his size and strength make him an excellent weak side rebounder. This kids shows improvement every few months. A definite sleeper in the 2010 class.

Don appeared at home on both the perimeter and block. Match that with skill and you have a pretty versatile player in Mr. Deleo.

Definitely one of the better prospects at the showcase.

Manjot Parhar Soph. Guard Martin Van Buren NY
Unlike a lot of current players, Manjot moves well without the basketball. He proved to be a very good all-around player that makes his living by taking advantage of the extra pass and knocking down the open J. Heâ€™s very unselfish, didnâ€™t force much and usually took what the defense gave him.
Aldon Muhammed Sr. Guard Queen of Peace NJ
This young senior will do himself well to attend a prep school just to have an extra year to showcase his many talents. Heâ€™s a very good ball handler whoâ€™s great in the open court. He gets to the basket better than most is not afraid to go inside and mix it up to get a rebound.
One to keep an eye on.

Javonteâ€™ Dickerson 5 Fr. Guard Atlantic City NJ
Javonteâ€™ is a rocket in the open floor that can get end to end as quickly as anyone weâ€™ve seen in recent years. Heâ€™s equally adept at driving the lane and finishing at the rim as he is at finding open teammates. On top of all of that he can knock down the open J. He may bring back memories of All-Stater Frankie Turner to the Atlantic City High School Die Hards.

Frankie Smalls Fr. Forward St. John Neuman -Goretti Phila, PA
Frankie is an offensive match-up problem. Heâ€™s too strong for most players his size to guard near the rim and crafty enough to make taller defenders disappear. Heâ€™s a fierce competitor thatâ€™s developing a deadly face up game from 20 feet out. Can string together points in a hurry.
Barry Spiller 5 Jr. Forward Pleasantville NJ
Barry is a pure workhorse. He simply outworked anyone he faced. If there was a Mr. Hustle Award, he would surely be the recipient. He punishes opponents on both boards and outruns his counterparts to rack up easy baskets in transition.
