The live recruiting period is coming around the corner. First up will be the NBS CAMP in three weeks and it will be a great chance for some kids to make a name for themselves and watch their stock rise. Coaches are going to find there recruiting boards are going to change daily. I can assure you coaching recruiting boards will look completely different after the first week of July; than they look today. Players, D1 Coaches thought were “B” level kids kids are going to move to “A” status. Some kids with offers are going to become “B” kids in a hurry. The Covid recruiting era is coming to a end after this years class. But the Portal recruiting era is here and is going to challenge every coaches ability to evaluate. Many coaches are going to find kids that committed to them have not improved and will have to make a big decision, live with their mistake or break ties They also are going to find kids they didn’t offer was a mistake as well. Coaches then will try to a find a way to clean that mistake up as well.
Well me I have been watching kids all spring. I know who is stock up and who is stock down. I know the kids who have committed who are on vacation. I know the ones who are trying so hard to protect what they have earned by picking when and where they train or play. These players are simply trying to make it to the national signing day. I know the kids whose practice and training habits have not changed regardless if they have a offer or have committed. I know the hungry ones. I know those RARE COMMITTED PLAYERS WHOSE STOCK IS STILL RISING, these players are priceless and hard to find. So today I will give coaches a little treat, before the NBS summer camp cheat sheet comes out in three weeks… cause today I am going to tell which kids across the state whose stock is up. Because a kid doesn’t make my list of stock risers doesn’t mean a player is not good. There are many players I have not seen this spring. Also a player may be a superstar talent and still one of the best regardless if they improved or not… but their habits may have changed and slowed their development. In other words this is about the kids…who have handled their business this spring.
These are the players who in my opinion have made the biggest jumps of the players I have seen this spring. We are not saying they are the best. We are saying they have had the biggest improvement curves. These are players I have seen over the last few months. They are ones who have made the biggest jumps in terms of player development. These are players on this list I have seen the last 3 months from outside and inside the shore who have blown up….reputation plays no factor; all that matters is the improvement curve and these kids have got it done….
Julia Corsentino of the New Jersey Gems U17 Select team… she has been sensational and it why she has been in position to call her own shots. She has multiple offers including A-10. Talk about rising your stock and game, she has done both.
Isabella Asencio of United U17 she just keeps producing and showing she is the best pure point guard in New Jersey. Soon someone is getting a mega talent and that is a fact because she seems to never play poorly.
Alexandra Loucopoulos of the New Jersey Gems 17 Select… she may be the most interesting player on this list. The work ethic and perform ace has been sensation and she clearly has elevated her stock.
