6'4" Jr. Steve Elman, Apache Junction, had a solid 2002-2003 campaign which earned him 4A All-State honors. After this springs Houston Kingwood Classic, Elman opened the eyes of many NCAA Division I Coaches and has elevated himself into one of the top prospects in Arizona.
A slender 6'4", this combo 2G/Swing turned in the best performance of any Arizona Cager in Texas. His high flying dunks caught the attention of everyone courtside, but his effort baseline to baseline, his pull up 3's and the quickest first step in AZ earned the respect of Stanford, Long Beach State, Northwestern, NAU, Oregon State, New Mexico to name of few.
Elman indicated to me his desire to stay close to his family as he ponders his college future. With his continued improvement, experience on the National level and hard work in the classroom, his future looks bright.
