COLLEGE/UNIVERSITIES OF INTEREST: Trawick has already signed a letter of intent to play high division one college basketball for the Georgetown Hoyas basketball program this fall.


Jabril scored 18 points in the Mary Kline Memorial All Star game, a tremendous event put together by scout guru Alex Kline. Alex is trying to raise money for charities in memory of his mother, Mary. This event was heldon May 28th at the Pennington School in New Jersey.

"Jabril stole the show from the get-go as he he won the Slam Dunk Contest with ease," said Kline.

"He goes hard every single play and has a ridiculous motor. Although his jumper is not where it should be for a wing, he makes up for it with his physicality.

"Trawick scores in the lane like no other and is a bully. He needs to work on his handle more but Jabril could be a special player under John Thompson III."


We previously reported Jabril landed scholarship offers from division one college basketball programs such as Florida State, LaSalle, Fairfield, Drexel, Robert Morris, Delaware, Richmond, and VCU.


Jabril will put his skill level on display tomorrow night when he competes in the Mary Kline Memorial All Star game, run by scout guru Alex Kline (his mom who passed away so young from cancer). The event will be held at The Pennington School in New Jersey.

Trawick was also named to the all tournament team (2011 D'onofrio All-Tournament Team). He previously averaged over 20 points a game this season for his high school team and has worked very hard on many areas of his individual game. He improved his consistency from the perimeter and made progress in extending his range on his jumper.

He previously scored 16 points and hauled down 10 rebounds to help his team blast Shipley, 60-40, in a league contest. Trawick also contributed five assists and three blocks.

In addition, Jabril also had a terrific game against a very talented Life Center basketball team, producing 29 points and grabbing nine rebounds. AFS defeated Life Center, 85-75.

Trawick made solid progress in playing the wing position, making him a more effective offensive player during his senior season for AFS. He proved he could hit the perimeter jumper while also using his handle to dive past defenders to the basket.
