Looking forward to: This is the third stop in Nike’s Elite Youth Basketball League. Nike’ stable is full of talent and at least 20 of Scout.com’s top 30 in the 2014 class are expected to be in attendance this weekend. After covering Hampton a few weeks back, the Dallas event will be used to catch up on the teams that we’ve yet to evaluate and to see how some of the emerging prospects are progressing.
Getting a good evaluation of the Expressions Elite bunch is priority. Abdul-Malik Abu and Jared Terrell have received quite a bit of college attention and word is that they are making progress on the courts. In Hampton, Mikal Bridges and Sandy Cohen were among the breakout performers, we are curious to see how they perform during the third leg of the league.
