After heavy thinking and evaluating. Basketball Spotlight has determined that the Mike Melton 2020 NJ State Player of the Year is Jamir Watkins from Trenton Catholic Academy and here’s why.
In a year which we have no McDonalds All American, TOC winner or State Champions factor in. I had to look at what I saw on the floor. When I saw Watkins face the Top 3 teams (Camden, Roselle Catholic and Patrick School) in the state he was undeniably “THE BEST PLAYER” on the floor even in defeat. Secondly, if you switched him with any other player in consideration their team would become better while TCA would actually lose more games. Finally, no other player dominated in the way he did. He handle the rock, scored from all three levels and played about the rim better than anyone else. Some might not agree but hes my pick! Jamir Watkins was the best player in the State of NJ!
