Senior Guard Gearing Up For D-1 Competition

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a free look at the individual game of Bronx-based guard prospect Michael Alvarado, who is expected to be an impact player on the division one level ...

Mike Alvarado, a 6-foot-2 backcourt prospect from All Hallows High School in the Bronx, New York, comes from a boy's basketball program that teaches fundamentals.

Alvarado, who signed a National Letter of Intent in the Fall to play division one college basketball at Manhattan College, is likely to make an impact at this level.

We previously reported that Alvarado showed Manhattan basketball fans at the Jordan Brand Classic local all-star game held at Madison Square Garden he can be a very effective player on both ends of the court.

Michael produced 14 points on six of six from the floor. He also recorded two assists in 13 minutes of playing time.


His play and improvement has been noticeable over the past two seasons. He does a nice job making basketball decisions and can help his team win a game in many ways.

Alvardo always competes hard on both sides of the ball too. He should be able to help the Manhattan basketball program as a freshman too as he played for a high school program that demands hard play both defensively and offensively. Taking a possession off wasn't tolerated at All Hallows.
