Jerel Scott, a 6-foot-4, 170-pound point guard from Bishop Mcginn High School in Albany, New York, is a 2011 prospect who is starting to attract some division one interest in his skill level.

According to Albany City Rocks program director, Jim Hart, Scott recently averaged 30 points a game at the Boo Williams tournament while playing for the 16 and under team.

"He's athletic and has grown five to six inches over the past year or so," said Hart. "There really isn't a weakness in his game.

"He plays defense, blocks shots, rebounds, and has a good handle. He can also shoot it."

Scott already has interest from Siena, Massachusetts, Fairfield and Albany. "He works very hard," said Hart. "He can play and help you win a game in so many areas. And he's a great kid."
