Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a look at the individual game of former Long Island star basketball player Josh Elbaum, who competed this past season at Northfield Mount Hermon in Massachusetts ...

Josh Elbaum, a 6-foot-3 multi-versatile guard prospect formerly from Northfield Mount Hermon in Massachusetts, is ready for his next challenge -- to play division one college basketball for Vermont.

The former St. John The Baptist High School player (Long Island, New York) is excited about the next step in his basketball/student career.

"I go up there on July 6th," he said. "I'm very excited about the chance to play there and make a contribution."

Vermont lost a key lead guard and Elbaum is a very skilled player in several positions, including playing minutes as the floor general. "They think I can come in and play right away," he said.
