The 2009 senior had some attractive offers to play basketball and land a big time quality education but Josh is looking to perhaps play at a higher level than he is currently being recruited at so far this year.
Not interested in Navy, he saw Lehigh move on after landing a commitment. Northeastern and Yale are also showing interest in Elbaum's individual game, which ranges from taking the ball to the basket, defending, rebounding, or making a nifty pass to an open teammate.
Reporter Brian Towey stated in his last report that Elbaum could tkae a prep year. Below is Brian's scouting report.
TOWEY ON JOSH ELBAUM'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: A big, rangy point guard with good vision and a feel for the game, Elbaum takes care of the ball and makes good decisions. He is a strong defender on the ball.
Elbaum, who plays for Jim Plate at St. John the Baptist, runs with the Long Island-based Rising Stars in AAU.
