Bolding, Others To Play In Area All Star Game

Reporter Mike Sullivan has list of player who might compete in Nate Blue's All Star event ...

The list is growing for Nate Blue's All Star event to be held on the campus of Fordham University on July 31st, the last day of the evaluation period. The three games will feature many of the area's top players.

The first game begins at 4:30 PM with the underclassman game. The second game starts at 6 PM as the Big Apple Junior College All Star game is held. And the final game of the night starts at 7:30 PM as the Senior All Star tips off.

Louisville recruit Melquan Bolding is expected to be one of several big name prospects playing. Bolding is a 6-foot-4 strong guard who has the ability to score on moves to the rim against the big bodies around the basket.

Scott Machado of St. Mary's (featured on this site a few times in the last two weeks) is listed as well as Rutgers recruit Christian Morris, the 6-foot-9 powerhouse. Morris recently committed to Fred Hill's basketball program after his recruiting started to get a more national flavor to it.

The underclassmen game features big man John Riek, James Padgett of Xaverian High School, Omari Lawrence of St. Raymond's, Lamont Jones of Rice, and Tamir Jackson of St. Benedict's.
