Game Recap: Jarell Eddie vs. GDS

DeaconSports was on hand in Greensboro, NC Friday night to witness to one of the nation's elite sophomore recruits in Jarell Eddie. Eddie and his Cannon School squad were matched up with an undefeated and highly ranked Greensboro Day team.

This was a great early season test for Cannon School as Greensboro Day is the reigning state runner up from last years playoffs after losing to the Christ School in the championship.

Jarell Eddie, a 6'6, 180-pound prospect who has already taken unofficial visits to Wake Forest, Kentucky, NC State, Clemson, Ohio State, and Virginia Tech among others, didn't have his best game but kept his team in the game most of the night before falling 68-47 Greensboro Day School.

Eddie plays inside primarily but can take his game outside if he needs to. His slashing ability gives him great opportunity to create his own shot and it's amazing to see the 2010 prospect weave his way through traffic. Against Greensboro Day, Eddie finished the night with 13 points on 5-13 shooting and 8 rebounds in 26 minutes.

Eddie's athletic ability will allow him to be a terror against any team he faces this year. This athletic ability was quite evident from on the offensive glass on Friday as Eddie worked to grab six offensive rebounds in the game.

Another part of Eddie's game is his defense; he's not just an offensive guy and that was evident on Friday. Eddie's athletic ability allows him to stick on his man as he moves his feet very well and stays in front of his man and uses his long arms to create problems.

Overall, Greensboro Day was just too much led by senior Bruce Woodall with 19 points. Woodall has signed to play golf at the University of Virginia after receiving mid-major interest from schools to play basketball. Ultimately this was a nice learning experience for Jarell Eddie and his Cannon teammates and yet another opportunity for Eddie to show why he is considered one of the state's best prospects in the class of 2010.
