GC Ballers Lead Guard Impressive This Summer

Reporter Mike Sullivan has story on a guard from the GC Ballers ...

GC Ballers head coach Jeff Bishop was busy this summer preparing his young team of talent for next year's big events for 17 and under. Bishop spent his time working with the 15 and 16 and under teams this past evaluation period.

"The kids are very coachable," Bishop said. "They played very well this summer, especially in Las Vegas."

A player that Bishop praised quite a bit was his lead guard Jamel Webb, 6-foot and 165 pounds. Webb competes for East High School in Buffalo, New York.

"He really rebounds well for a guard," said Bishop about his 2009 prospect. Webb, a rising junior, also has the ability to knock down perimeter shots.

"He shot about 60 percent from the three-point line," Bishop said about Webb. "He is deadly from the outside. He was the most valuable player from the 16 and under tournament at the ADIDAS 64 in Las Vegas."

Webb is now on the radar screen for some division one programs, despite being a rising junior. "Buffalo, Niagara, Siena, and St. Bonaventure are showing some interest now," Bishop said.

Jamel remains open in his recruiting process and is expected to play with the highly regarded GC Ballers AAU program over the next year. "He had a great summer," Bishop said. "Schools are just starting to find out about him."
