BallasTv Showcase Quick Recap

BallasTv held their first annual showcase today.  The day was filled with great excitement.  Among notable attendees were Jalen Adams (committed to UConn), Jermaine Samuels, Jordan Hardwick, Dexter Thompson, Monytung Maker, and Isaiah McLeoud.  Jalen Adams was dominant getting to the basket with ease and hitting any shot he wanted.  Isaiah McLeoud who is fresh off his visit to Stonehill College played great.  He created for his team well and hit a bunch of shots from behind the arc.  Dexter Thompson had the best day for anyone trying to make a name for themselves.  Thompson drove to the hoop hard and finished off with nice slam dunks multiple times.  He plays with a Jaylen Brown or Stanley Johnson style.  Dexter seemed to be a few steps ahead of everyone on the court because of his great awareness and high basketball IQ.  Dexter Thompson will receive attention from a few schools due to his performance today.  Monytung Maker also had a breakout performance.  Maker seemed to be everywhere on the court and putting his stamp on the game.  Maker has a smooth offensive game and rebounds the basketball well.  The story of the day though was Jermaine Samuels.  He seemed to dunk anything and everything around the rim.  Several times Samuels had the gym in disbelief with his highly athletic offensive game.  Samuels is a top 25 national prospect in the class of 2017.  Jermaine Samuels is a special player and will receive offers from the top colleges in the country sooner or later.  BallasTv certainly put on a show for fans and coaches.  The top talent in New England looks promising.  Come back soon for the full recap from the event.
