Hoop Group Mid-Atlantic Jam Fest - Saturday Blog
NERR scout Jared Exler was on hand over the weekend at Spooky Nook Sports in Manheim, PA for the Hoop Group Mid-Atlantic Jam Fest.
In case you missed any of the action, here is a rundown from him on some of Saturday's standouts.
2024 @GlobalSquadBB & @SpringdalePrep guard Elwyne Wordlaw caught my eye last game set. He is a tenacious on ball defender with his lateral quickness/physicality. Also has impressive vision as a half-court/transition passer. pic.twitter.com/4ZOCl4vcIz— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) July 16, 2022
Available 2022 @bweliteaau & @TepFamBball big man Chad Anglin uses his explosiveness to finish well from the dunker spot or corral difficult rebounds. Also is fluid running the floor in transition and impacts the game as a weak-side rim protector. pic.twitter.com/5prqKJn5ll— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) July 16, 2022
2023 @bweliteaau & @BurrsBasketball wing Marcus Branker regularly gets to the basket with his good burst/strong body. He also has a creative layup package and is comfortable playing through contact which allows him to finish well around the rim. pic.twitter.com/qB0u50kASG— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) July 16, 2022
2023 @TTO17uNational & Riverdale Baptist guard Marcus Banks uses start and stop moves to regularly get into the paint, can score over bigger defenders with a soft floater, and makes good decisions as a half-court playmaker when opponents collapse on him. pic.twitter.com/n5LioPAe65— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) July 16, 2022
Johnny McCain, a 2023 from @rensunited & @cburyboysbball is a sharpshooting guard with a quick release. Excels at hitting three-pointers off the catch while also being able to attack closeouts for mid-range pull-ups. pic.twitter.com/u0cl5p93IV— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) July 16, 2022
2023 @rensunited & @LC_BoysBBALL big man Justas Bardauskas stood out last game set as he was all over the offensive glass, moved well without the ball, and showed some upside as a passer out of the post. pic.twitter.com/ehOSueiEkp— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) July 16, 2022
2023 @yorkballers & @hillcrest_prep guard Julian Gabbidon uses the nice wiggle in his handle to consistently get lane penetration, finishes well at the rim with a soft touch off the glass, and can find teammates zipping bounce passes in tight windows. pic.twitter.com/b1RWKLxAx7— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) July 16, 2022Kahihl Venable, an available 2022 from @TeamLoaded804 & @PrepMoravian is a crafty playmaking guard who can also hit open standstill threes and make an impact when guarding on the ball. pic.twitter.com/Iw6a3OCAkX

2023 @oharaboyshoops wing Izaiah Pasha is spending this weekend playing for @TeamPA before the @UANextBHoops Finals next week. He stood out last game set showcasing his shot creation skills, potent mid-range game, and length altering opponents’ shots. pic.twitter.com/XvSXGJ4U74— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) July 16, 2022
2023 @ALLINHoopsNJ & @SJHSMetBball guard Jeremy Clayville is a terrific shooter making treys off the catch/bounce/move, can hit difficult mid-range shots, while also being able to create for others on ball screens. pic.twitter.com/NAKMmJwd9Q— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) July 16, 2022
2024 @cavemanbb & @MarsHS_Hoops big man Remi Black can space the floor hitting standstill threes, has a soft touch/strong body to finish well from the dunker spot, and is a solid defensive rebounder with his good hands. pic.twitter.com/SqfxwMvwUI— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) July 17, 2022
2024 @cavemanbb & @FxCAthletics guard Jefferson Moorefield-Brown was impressive in the 7:30 PM window. He constantly got downhill with his burst in the half-court/transition and showed a nice feel finding others. pic.twitter.com/Zoku7Br4rX— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) July 17, 2022
