2011 Upstate Prospect Has Early D-1 Looks

Reporter Mike Sullivan spoke to Albany City Rocks program director Jim Hart about the individual game of Jerel Scott, a 2011 prospect who is picking up some division one interest in his skill level ...

Jerel Scott, a 6-foot-4, 170-pound point guard from Bishop Mcginn High School in Albany, New York, is a 2011 prospect who has grown quite a bit over the past year.

According to Albany City Rocks program director/head coach of the 17s this season, Jim Hart, Scott has a solid overall individual game.

"He doesn't have any weakness," Hart said. "Even though we lost three games at Boo Williams, he was our best player for the 16 and under team. He averaged over 30 points a game."

JIM HART'S THOUGHTS ON JEREL SCOTT'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

He's athletic and has grown five to six inches over the past year or so. 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. He works very hard. He can play and help you win a game in so many areas. And he's a great kid.
