Area Prospect Has More Schools Interested

Reporter Mike Sullivan updates the recruiting status of Josh Elbaum, a former player for St. John the Baptist in West Islip, New York ... Elbaum has more schools interested in his recruiting process ...

Josh Elbaum, a 6-foot-3 multi-versatile guard prospect formerly from St. John The Baptist High School on Long Island, New York, told us there are more schools coming to watch him workout the end of this week.

"Siena, Hofstra, and Wagner are coming up to watch me," said Elbaum, who played for one of the country's top prep programs in Northfield Mount Hermon in Massachusetts this past season.

Elbaum is still open in his recruiting process.

"The new Hofstra staff seems to like me," Elbaum said previously.

But, with the addition of two more schools, Elbaum will have a better chance of attracting a scholarship offer.


Josh sent in his application to Columbia. In addition, Quinnipiac and Colgate are of interest to him.


Elbaum has shown the ability to help his team in many ways. He has nice size for a lead guard and has impressed the reporters on this website many times with his ability to distribute, score, defend, and rebound.


A pass-first point guard with good size for his position, Elbaum has strong vision and defends well on the ball.
