Ismael Massoud 2019

Nike Grassroots Basketball hosted 100 top national prospects in the classes of 2019 and 2020 at their annual Nike Elite One Hundred last week in Saint Louis.

Invited prospects, who were selected almost exclusively from within Nike's sponsored grassroots programs, competed in closed session drills and games from Thursday to Sunday in front of Nike staff, select media, and limited family.

Tabor Academy and Expressions Elite guard Noah Fernandes was in attendance along with MacDuffie School and PSA Cardinals guard Ismael Massoud. Nate Tabor, a Connecticut native who currently attends Our Savior New American in New York and plays for the New York Rens, was also in attendance.

Fernandes has been playing up on Expressions' EYBL team all spring and seen his impact increase with every passing session. He had a particularly big weekend earlier this month when he helped Expressions earn the championship at the Rumble in the Bronx. Below are some of his highlights from that weekend.

Massoud has been a staple of PSA Cardinals' 16-and-under team this spring. At 6-foot-7, he has tremendous perimeter size along with the versatility to play multiple positions. He holds early offers from high-major programs including Xavier, Wake Forest, Rutgers, and Minnesota among others. Below are highlights of Massoud along with some of his MacDuffie teammates during the recent season care of Hoop Major.

Tabor is a 2020 prospect who began his freshman year at Sacred Heart High School in Waterbury before transferring to Our Savior New America prior to the season. He's been a major contributor for The Rens 16-and-under team this spring and utilized as a point guard for stretches due to his unselfishness and passing ability. He holds early high-major offers from St. John's, TCU, LSU, Auburn, and Texas Tech among others. Below are some of his recent highlights.
