New York Recruiting Report

Lawrence Stands out…Terrence Samuel intro...Morton to Marist…Brittingham drawing interest…Harris visits St. John's...iS8 highlights...Mosley transfers

Class of 2013 PF Jermaine Lawrence (Bayside, N.Y./Cardoza) has the tools to be a special prospect down the road.  I got my first glimpse at the 6-foot-8 prospect this weekend at the Metro Elite 75 Frosh/Soph Showcase and saw right away he's a high-level athlete with long arms and agility to match his bounce. Lawrence is the prototypical run-and-jump athlete who thrives in the city.
New York City has always been a top producer of point guard talent and Terrence Samuel looks to be one of the next wave of young talent in the Big Apple that college coaches are intrigued with. The 6-foot-3, 180-pound point guard out of the New Heights NYC AAU program and South Shore High School in Brooklyn has seen several college coaches stop by this fall to get a look at his game and he continues to hear from a growing list of colleges as his recruitment is just beginning to pick up.

Now you can add Shaquille Mosley to the list. A good chunk of Long Island's talent has exited the public basketball leagues over the last 18 months in domino fashion.
Thursday at the iS8/Nike featured two exciting match-ups. First-Up, Wings (1-2) and Bayside (0-3) would go at it in a dust up.  Afterwards, Raising Champions (1-2) would take on 2 The Rack (4-0) in a fast paced foray. Thankfully, there were no blow outs but two entertaining confrontations.
On Thursday, the death of New York City basketball streetball legend John "Franchise" Strickland (1972-2010) rang throughout the Mecca.
