Middle School Elite regional scouts are live at the Peach Jam in North Augusta, South Carolina. Remember, we're the only 'national youth' website in existence. Before we'd let Joel Berry out the bag, not too many people knew of him on a national level. Berry's made a name for himself, as the top rising 9th grader in the country. Very soon, you'll hear Berry's name mentioned by scouts who tend to follow our lead.
As we reported earlier, Johnson and Berry are playing with 16U 'Each One Teach One', coached by Reggie. E1T1 is sponsored by Amare Stoudemire, a NBA player who recently signed with the New York Knicks. Well, Kejuan Johnson went straight to work at the 3 position and caught four pretty dunks in one game. The highlight of the day is when Johnson slammed it on Jarnell Stokes a 6'8 muscular forward from Memphis, TN. Stokes plays for Memphis YOMCA and he's ranked #7 for the class of 2012, according to Rivals.com. Johnson finished that game with 15 points. Impressive for a 13 year old.
Joel Berry did his thing; nevertheless, he started off a little sluggish. He didn't catch a dunk, but he made several assist to demonstrate his passing skills. We observed Berry applying excellent defense as well. He averaged 10 points a game playing up with athletes 17 years old and younger. " I adjust easy and tomorrow I'll have a better game", said Joel Berry on his way to the locker room. It's going down in Georgia and Middle School Elite is in effect. Stay tuned as we bring you reports, on both of them, at the Peach Jam. Look for the Joel Berry Sr. interview, coming soon. Joel Berry and Kejuan Johnson exclusive on MiddleSchoolElite.com.
