LATEST UPDATE: Jeriel Henriquez put on a show recently in the first quarter against highly regarded St. Anthony's High School of Jersey City, New Jersey. Henriquez produced all 11 LuHi points in the first quarter. After his sizzling start, Bob Hurley's fundamentally sound defense clamped down on the talented shooting guard.

Henriquez has great range on his jumper and is confident in his game. He can carry a team for a quarter or two with his offensive skills.

STRENGTHS: Unlimited range on his jumpshot and possesses good athletic skills. He had a solid first step to the rim and is a good enough athlete to manage scoring on drives to the basket.

AREA TO IMPROVE: Jeriel needs to use the seldom used skill of passing and moving without the basketball. Sometimes pounding the ball into the hardwood creates opportunities for defenders to double team his chance to score.
