Looking Forward To: Half of the talented Under Armour Circuit will be at the Pitt Hoop Group Jam Fest, and at the 17 and under level that makes for some very interesting matchups featuring some big time players. One question is after a big time high school year, how will Romelo Trimble look, some in the area think he is primed for a huge spring and summer.
Also there is the question of a few guys like A.J. Turner and Dakota Mathias. Both had breakout high school seasons, and picked up major college interest. However now how will things go for them with the schedule featuring more talented teams an talented players.
Then there is the question of the younger kids. Will 2016 standout Seventh Woods match the hype as one of the top young players in the country. Also can Carlton Bragg and Trey Thompson answer the bell and show why they have a lot of buzz as potential McDonald's All-American type talents. It will be an interesting event as always, and a lot of players emerge and raise their stock in the Steel City.
