Kids Transfer ALL the Time! Deal With It…

Transfers are very, very common among high school students… Even some VERY GOOD basketball players transfer… Here’s a few off the top of my head…

Rico Washington – Frankford to Ben Franklin

Brian Shorter – Gratz to Oak Hill

Tasheed Carr – UCity to Oak Hill

Nazeer Bostick – MCS to Roman Catholic

Mike Watkins – Bartram to MCS

Traci Carter – Roman to Life Center

Tony Carr – Abington Friends to Roman Catholic

Josh Sharkey – Abington Friends to Archbishop Carroll

Devon McClendon – Academy Park to Chester

Glenn Sabb – Cheltenham to ANC

Zah Harrison – Wood to Cheltenham

Dave Beatty – Carroll to St. Benedict’s to Imhotep

Matthue Cotton – ANC to St. Benedict’s to Eastern

DJ Newbill – Imhotep to Strawberry Mansion

Jarrod Denard – Imhotep to Friere Charter

Marcus Littles – ANC to Neumann-Goretti

Justin Anderson – Chestnut Hill to ANC to Archbishop Caroll

Rashid Bey – Glen Mills to Neumann

Allen Betrand – Fels to Roman Catholic

Justin Steers – Tacony Charter to Friends Central

Skinny Warwick – UCity to Friends Central

SROMAN20-G

Three TRANSFERS Stevens (Haverford School), Bostick (MCS) and Carr (Abington Friends)

I guess the ADs of these sending schools failed to “protect” the kids from themselves?

Kid doesn’t want to go to your school?

Let him go…

Wish him well…

Open enrollment and school choice is a good thing! A VERY good thing!

The Significance of “Open Gyms” for Uncommitted Prospects

Across the country, an extremely important, but frequently overlooked, phase of the basketball recruiting process is underway… College basketball coaches are, once again, able to visit high schools, watch scholastic players and evaluate guys they have prioritized over the AAU/grassroots season. These “open gyms” are significant for a number of reasons: 1) a coach’s presence reveals that he continues to be very interested in a prospect; 2) players get to perform in a more relaxed setting with HS teammates; 3) players that have been previously overlooked or did not play on one of the major shoe company circuits get an opportunity to catch the eye of college coaches.

The Black Cager will be visiting “Open Gyms” throughout the mid-Atlantic Region. Also, 48 HS teams, featuring some of the finest players in the nation, will participate in the Black Cager Fall Classic October 14-15 at Girard College. Black Cager Scouting Service will share player evaluations with college basketball programs.

Below please find a list of scholastic players that have exhibited potential to play at the collegiate level. Many are capable of playing at D1, D2 or NAIA schools that offer athletic scholarships. Still others, are sure to draw the interest of high level Division 3 programs.

An Open Letter to College Basketball Coaches…

Coach… Coach… Relax Bro… I know it’s been hectic the past few weeks. Sit back and chill for a few… Let me holla at ya…

Airports, hotels, rental cars D2 gyms, D3 gyms and HOT ASS high school gyms one after another…

Couple days home, then…

Airports, hotels, rental cars D2 gyms, D3 gyms and HOT ASS high school gyms one after another…

The grind is real!

I feel your pain Bro… I understand… You gotta get that kid… You been stalking him, texting him, direct messaging him, calling Mom, calling Dad, listening to his Ol’ Head’s ‘assessment’ of how he fits in YOUR offense… I get it… You’re tired as shit…

This week you’re sitting down with your Head Coach and the other Assistants on staff and discuss what you’ve seen… You’re trying to come up with a plan for August. “How do we close?”

“We gotta get this shit done!”

“Who should we bring on campus this month? Which local kids do we invite for unofficials? Who do we bring in on official visits?”

Allow the Black Cager Scouting Service to help you sort through some of this clutter… We can help you evaluate and contact kids playing in the mid-Atlantic region (NJ, PA, DE & MD).

We know the pressure you work under… We appreciate your time, we don’t waste it… You’re looking for kids that can help you win games in your conference… You need to get to a post-season tournament…

The Black Cager Scouting Service helps college basketball coaches identify NCAA-eligible student-athletes.

Below you will find some recent observations… These are for coaches recruiting at the highest levels, like guys working for Power Conference Schools or ambitious programs in the A10, Mountain West, American and C-USA conferences, etc.

We all know… It’s levels to this shit! Black Cager keeps that in mind at all times…

Coach… Are you in the market for a high end, “One and Done” level talent?

If you are at or near the top of one of the Power Conferences and need a piece that can put you in position to make a Final Four appearance there are a couple of mid-Atlantic prospects that could help you get there. These are the guys at the very top of the food chain.

Cameron Reddish (Team Final/Westtown), ESPN, #4 2018, is definitely a target for guys in this predicament. A genuine, certified, verified, bonafied “one and done” prospect, Reddish is nearly 6’8” and approaching 210 lbs. He is a highly skilled WG/SF. Straight out of casting central, Cam looks the part. He has the handle… He has the shot… He can pass… He can rebound… He can defend… At times, he makes it look too easy. Although a few have questioned if he has a true killer instinct, none have questioned his elite basketball abilities. Cam is THE MAN in the mid-Atlantic region. Reddish a very good, not freakish, athlete.  But he is extremely smooth and explosive enough to translate his game to the collegiate level and beyond. Programs that routinely feature 1 or 2 year college players are heavily involved with Reddish. Kentucky, Duke, UConn, UCLA and Villanova round out his top 5.

vjkxgdleavnun8aghctr

The other sure fire prospect for those seeking a “one and done” talent in the mid-Atlantic region is Nazreon Reid (Sports U/Roselle Catholic). Reid, ESPN #8 2018, at first glance looks like an old school back to the basket low-post player until the game starts. After jump ball, he becomes a 6’10”, 250 pound highly skilled forward with solid ball-handling skills and exceptional vision. He makes very good decisions with the ball in transition. He keeps his head up and finds teammates with accurate no-look passes. A very good athlete, Reid possesses a mature frame. A solid year in an intensive collegiate strength and conditioning program will convert Reid into an NBA-ready physical specimen in short order. Make no mistake, Reid is a naturally strong, highly skilled and unselfish young players figuring out how to impose his will on games. He has quick release and a repeatable stroke from deep. He shoots over 42% from beyond the arc. He won’t be a college player for long. I’d be surprised if he earns more that 15-18 credits… UConn, Kansas, Louisville, LSU and Maryland are just few of his primary suitors.

Are you looking for a guard that can contribute to a HIGH MAJOR program early in their careers and is likely to stay in school beyond one season?

There are several to top prospects choose from in the mid-Atlantic region. I really don’t think you can go wrong with anyone of them…

26_4516219

Immanuel Quickley (Team BBC/John Carroll) is a 6’3” 180 pound point guard from Baltimore. Quickley, ESPN #15 2018, is a big point guard with room to add size and strength. He has an athletic frame with broad shoulders and long arms and legs. He plays a cerebral game. Quickley consistently makes smart plays and possesses a good instinctive feel for the game. An outstanding defender both on and off the ball, he applies great pressure to opposing point guards and is extremely disruptive in the the passing lanes exhibiting impressive quickness. Arizona, Cincinnati, UConn, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Maimi, Providence and UCLA are some of the schools pursuing Quickley.

26_5274429

Jahvon Quinerly (Sports U/Hudson Catholic) plays the game at a very even pace. At 6’1” 175 pounds, Quinerly, ESPN #16 2018, is never in a hurry and plays with a very calm demeanor. Usually paired with very talented teammates in both AAU and high school settings, Quinerly has an advanced feel for the game. An exceptional ball-handler, Quinerly is equally adept going right or left. While he is able to create space for himself off the dribble with in and out moves and crossovers, he is at his best utilizing screens and in the pick and roll. Quinerly plays the game with a very high degree of confidence. He is a HIGH MAJOR point guard prospect for sure. Arizona, Kansas, Maryland, Villanova, UCLA, Syracuse and Virginia are among the offers he has received.

6_5317589

Louis King (Team Final/Hudson Catholic) is a very talented small forward/big wing oozing with potential. He has very solid ball-handling skills as a result of growing four inches in the last two years. When he is on, he can be dominant offensively. King at 6’8”, 205 lbs, ESPN #17 2018 can put up big numbers even when his man is playing outstanding defense. He’s effective in pick and roll situations where he can simply dribble off and pull up. He is crafty enough to create space for his shot in isolation situations. He has decent range and nice form on his jump shot, but his shot-selection at times hurts his percentages. King gets nice elevation and can shoot off balance with little trouble, particularly from mid-range range. Operates as a bit of a point forward. Great one-on-one skills. Excellent hesitation moves and use of ball fakes. Plays the game at many different speeds. Effective crossover. Hard to stop off the dribble. Outstanding ball-handler at his size. Kansas, Kansas St, Louisville, Seton Hall, St. John’s, Syracuse and VCU are pursuing King.

FullSizeRender.jpg.0

Jalen Carey (NJ Playaz/Immaculate Conception) is a very athletic combo guard. He’s very smooth and capable of explosively attacking the rim in transition. Carey, ESPN #56, 2018, has great size and explosive scoring ability. In both AAU and High School settings he has proven himself to be a very natural scorer with an effortless shooting ability and excellent instincts off the dribble. He’s very quick in half-court situations with an excellent first step. He penetrates the defense and gets into the paint with ease. Carey is fast and goes from end to end in a blur. He consistently makes good decisions in fast-break opportunities. Great size for a point guard, standing 6’3” and weighing 175 pounds. Very capable of creating shots for himself off the dribble with a lot of hesitations, crossovers and fakes to get himself open. Shoots the ball often and with confidence. UConn, Notre Dame, Villanova, Syracuse, Penn State, South Carolina, Pitt, Rutgers, St. Joseph’s, Temple, VCU are some of the schools recruiting Carey.

C8SxabZXcAE60E1

Noah Locke (Team Melo/McDonogh) is an athletic shooting guard, with great scoring potential. Locke is a very good shooter, with quick release. At 6’2” 195, he shoots it well coming of screens and he more than capable of creating his own shot off-the-dribble. He is a deadly pull up jump shooter. Locke, ESPN #82 2018, is a “old school” shooting guard who possesses a very solid mid-range game. His strongest asset is his ability to put the ball in the basket. He has a compact and repeatable shooting stroke with a high release. He was one of the best three-point shooters on the EYBL cuircuit this year. He also has potential as a defender even though he’s not very big or exceptionally strong. He has quick feet, and should be able to defend college shooting guards on the perimeter. His recruiting has really picked up this Spring/Summer with Florida, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Michigan, Notre Dame, Pitt, Providence and Virginia Tech in hot pursuit.

UAA FINALS

Eric Ayala (WeRone/Putnam Science) is a big highly skilled point guard. Ayala, 6’4” 190 pounds, is relatively tall and strong for his position. He possesses adequate quickness and speed, but his size and physicality are his most useful assets. Ayala, ESPN #88 2018, is able to slide over to shooting guard on occasion without much difficulty. Has a great feel for the game, highly refined ball handling skills, and is as clutch as they come. He’s been a big part of consecutive (2016, 2017) Under Armour 17U national championship teams. He’s never afraid to take the big shot. One of the most reliable and efficient offensive point guards in the nation. Ayala is very effective in pick and roll situations. He’s difficult to guard on the high pick and roll due to his shooting ability. Capable of stopping and popping from just about anywhere. Needs to become more consistent from three point range. He is great at initiating contact and finishing. Goes to the line at a high rate. Great killer instinct. Doesn’t turn the ball over at all for how much he dribbles. Not a fancy ball handler, but a good one. Not a fancy passer either. However, he is well above average in that aspect of the game. Arizona, UConn, Oregon, Indiana, Maryland, Miami, Ohio State, South Carolina, Syracuse, St. John’s, Temple, Saint Joseph’s, VCU and USC are some of programs pursuing Ayala.

College, JUCO, High School, Junior High School, Middle School and AAU coaches and basketball trainers are invited to attend. The Black Cager Philadelphia Philadelphia Basketball Coaches Clinic will be held on the historic campus of Girard College located in at 2101 S. College Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19121.

Coaches Clinic Poster-page-0

The Black Cager is excited to bring coaches from the Big 10, ACC, CIAA, Big East and CAA conferences to Philadelphia for this event.  Philadelphia has hundreds of basketball coaches working at every level from college down to elementary school. This clinic is designed to help these coaches pick up valuable information they can take back and apply while working with their players.

Moreover, the Black Cager feels that relationships play a larger role in basketball than perhaps any other sport. We want to give local coaches a chance to spend a few hours with these college guys. We want them to forge relationships that they can build upon and use to further the careers of the players in their programs.

Philly Native, David Butts Joins NC A&T Coaching Staff

Greensboro, North Carolina – June 6, 2017 – North Carolina A&T University has named Philadelphia David Butts, Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach. This past year, Butts worked as Assistant Coach under Head Coach Robert Hughes at Rosemont College. Rosemont went 16-11 and 13-5 in the CSAC. They reached the CSAC semifinal where they fell on road to nationally ranked Neumann University.

Butts (pictured below left, with Kentucky Coach John Calipari) was an integral part of Coach Hughes success at Rosemont this season. Butts states, “I can’t say enough about the opportunity that Coach Hughes gave me to be an assistant in a highly competitive program. I was able to learn a great deal about the importance of attention to detail and preparation from him.”

484091_523984997639824_2142362410_n(1)

He will join the staff of Aggie Head Coach Jay Jones at North Carolina A&T. “Coach Joyner has given me an opportunity to work at the Division 1 level in the historic MEAC Conference. I have a deep appreciation for the history of the A&T basketball. One of the all-time great Aggies is from Philadelphia. Joe Howell played in the 50s and still ranks as one of the top 5 scorers in the history of the program. I want to give some of the young players in Philly an opportunity to come to Greensboro and write some new chapters in the history of Aggie basketball.”

He has worked at the prep school, JUCO and collegiate level. As a result he brings a wealth of experience in dealing with prospects at all levels. According to Butts, “When kids come to A&T they will go against Morgan St. Norfolk St, Howard, South Carolina State, Florida A&M and Delaware State. The MEAC has some of the toughest rivalries in all of collegiate sports. But most importantly, the HBCU experience will greatly benefit a lot of kids. The nurturing environment on the A&T campus is much different from the large impersonal setting found at a lot of Division 1 colleges.”

South Carolina Assistant Coach Perry Clark  and St. Joseph’s Assistant Geoffrey Arnold spoke very highly of Butts. Clark says, “David is very passionate about coaching and eager to learn. Those are the traits one looks for in a young coach.” According to Arnold, “Dave is really an effective communicator. He relates very well to the kids playing high school and AAU basketball. I think he will do very well at A&T.”

Black Cager Sports Media will follow Coach Butts and the North Carolina A&T Aggies very closely.

 

 

South Carolina’s Sedee Keita Transferring

A key reserve as a freshman, Keita played in 29 games during rookie campaign.  He posted averages 1.1 points, 2.0 rebounds and 0.4 blocks in 9.6 minutes per game. In SEC play, he saw action in 14 games, posting 0.7 points and 1.9 rebounds per game.

His offensive output was hampered by a wrist injury that caused him to miss the first four games of the season. Keita tallied a season high seven points in win over Lander (Dec. 27), and pulled down a season high seven rebounds in non-conference finale at Memphis (Dec. 30)

He played a season high 28 minutes at No. 13/12 Florida (Feb. 21), posting two points with six rebounds. He also collected two blocks in Elite Eight win over No. 20/17 Florida (March 26).

Keita immediately becomes one of the best available power forwards in the nation. South Carolina Head Coach signed Keita’s release without any restrictions.

Keita is an athletic power forward who has a strong frame and good mobility and agility for his size. This year he demonstrated an ability to be an excellent post defender. He was a four-star recruit according to ESPN.com and rated the 85th player in the ESPN100. Also a four-star recruit according to Rivals.com and the No. 82 prospect overall.

La Salle and Pittsburgh have expressed an interest in Keita. He will likely hear from programs in all the major conferences.
