SALMON'S QUOTE ON EPPS: "He was a big part in helping our 16 and under team win the Rumble in the Bronx title."
Salmon's Playaz Club, the 16 and under team, won the Rumble in the Bronx title with a victory over New Heights in a game played at Manhattan College.
PREVIOUS EVALUATION OF EPPS' INDIVIDUAL GAME:
STRENGTHS: Isiah is an exceptional shooter and also does a nice job with his handle
AREA TO IMPROVE: Needs to be a better defender
EVALUATION BY FRANK MANTESTA AND MIKE SULLIVAN: Epps is one of the best players in the 2010 class. Isiah has exceptional range on his jumper and possesses a good handle. If he is able to master the point guard position, Epps will end up being a high major player and an immediate impact player on the college level.
His AAU coach likens him to Kenny Anderson, the former NBA player and Molloy High School standout.
