HIGH SCHOOL: Peekskill High School in Peekskill New York
FAMOUS BASKETBALL ALUMNI OF PEEKSKILL HS: Hilton Armstrong and Elton Brand
PEEKSKILL HEAD COACH: Lou Panzanaro
BRIAN TOWEY'S VIEW: Mookie is terrifically long and great in transition, an exciting run-and-jump athlete. He established himself as a shooting threat as an underclassman, and has gradually expanded his range. From 16 feet on out, he is very capable (lethal along the baselines).
MIKE SULLIVAN'S VIEW: Mookie is very productive in an uptempo situation. He seems equally skilled in transition in a high-pace game. However, he also possesses good hands and does a nice job in deflecting balls in the passing lanes. As he improves his medium range game, he will become an exceptional college player.
Mookie's list has a national flavor. Will he head outside the New York area to play college basketball? We should get that answer from the 2008 prospect over the next several months.
