Bishop Ford Forward Has Division One Interest

Reporter Mike Sullivan has some information on the game of Jermaine Braumuller ...

Bishop Ford High School is neatly tucked away in the great borough of Brooklyn. But don't be mistaken about the talent on its roster. There's plenty of division one potential players that are likely to get some coaches evaluating their individual games.

A player to watch over the next two seasons is Jermaine Braumuller, a 6-foot-9, 240-pound forward. Braumuller impressed us recently during Bishop Ford's big victory over Carey High School of Long Island, 71-59.

Braumuller had to battle Carey's key player, Mike Sands, at times during this very competitive game held during the Hope Through Hoops event inside the Hofstra University gym.

Jermaine did a nice job, especially in the second half. Sands is a very good player, headed to Yale after this season. And it's hard to stop Sands. Maybe you can contain him.

But Braumuller did a nice job himself offensively. He scored 12 points, grabbed some key rebounds, and had some blocks which helped Bishop Ford overcome a 37-34 halftime deficit.

According to Bishop Ford assistant coach, Peter Goyco, Jermaine is getting some division one interest in his skills. Remember, Braumuller is a 2008 prospect.

Among the schools Goyco mentioned were Long Island University, St. Francis of New York, and Albany. He is open in his recruiting process and doesn't have a leader.
