Such will be needed for the Juice All Stars, traditionally one of the best AAU programs in the country, as the Joe Brown Memorial tournament begins tomorrow in Englewood, New Jersey on Route 4.
The two day event is run by the Playaz Basketball Club of New Jersey and Jimmy Salmon.
Stokes was impressive to us a few weeks ago as he dropped in shots from long range at the at the Rumble in the Bronx held on the campus of Fordham University.
Stokes told us he was working on all parts of his game, getting stronger, playing defense, moving the ball quickly out of double teams, and taking the ball to the rim.
Stokes, who stated he is open in his recruiting process, is a player to watch since he has the ability to scorch a defense with his shooting skills.
Just a rising junior, he has a couple more high school seasons to improve his individual game and prove to division one programs he has the ability to produce points.
