In my 10th year of evaluating talent. I have realized what it takes to become a good basketball player. Over 100 college basketball coaches read RealScout.net, in a effort to recruit new york city.
In this Four-Part series, I would like to put my honest opinions out there and discuss some of our top available players of 2009.
All these players aren't Division One superstars, but should be playing college basketball for free, in 2009.
RealScout.net NYC Uncommitted Seniors List
Rasheem King 6'4 Xaverian HS (Brooklyn)
King's versatility has been on display this season for the Clippers. King can handle and get to the basket better than most. His ability to post smaller guards and get a easy bucket is one of the many talents of this 2009 D1 player. King holds a offer from Manhattan College. With schools coming around late, expect Rasheem to make a decision in late April.
Alex Hall 6'5 Forest Hills (Queens)
Hall has been one of the biggest stories in NYC Basketball for the past week. Leading his Forest Hills Rangers to their first ever PSAL Queens Borough Championship. Hall has all the tools of a Low D1/D2 player.
Armand Thomas 6'7 Herbert Lehman (Bronx)
Thomas is one of the biggest players in the PSAL. A 6'7 270pound Center that is a excellent rebound a winner on the basketball court. Built like an offensive lineman, Thomas is formerly of St. Raymond's High School, and was the key player on a frosh squad which featured Tyreak Johnson and Omari Lawrence. Thomas is a shaq like figure in NYC Public School basketball.
Keith Spellman 6'3 Thomas Jefferson (Brooklyn) 19.8ppg, 7.8rpg, 5.6apg
The face of Thomas Jefferson for the last four seasons has been Keith Spellman. A athletic tough combo guard, that maybe could have won a PSAL crown if not for Lincoln in years past. Spellman is currently being treated for back spasms and is rumored to not have a single offer. While I think spellman does have offers, but not the ones he may want. The 2,000 point scorer and one of the states best will be playing D1 Ball next season.
Argelix Gil 6'4 Franklin K. Lane (Brooklyn)
24.8ppg, 16.1rpg, 3.2apg
Gil is easily a top 10 player in New York City. I really can't explain his game other than he's one of the best in the city. He can shoot, rebound, jump, defend, score, pass, and is extremely talented. I don't wanna talk him up like he's a Big Time D1 Talent. But, he is a Low D1 player in a "A League" School, that will never get the props he deserves...besides on realscout.net
