Upstate Backcourt Player Worth Watching

Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a look at the individual game of a update backcourt player who competed this past weekend at the Rumble in the Bronx held on the campuses of Manhattan and Fordham ...

Jerel Scott, a 6-foot-4, 170-pound combo guard from Bishop Mcginn High School in Albany, New York, impressed us this past weekend playing for Jim Hart's Albany City Rocks AAU program.

Scott competed for the rising senior Rocks' team at the Rumble in the Bronx, an event held on the campuses of Manhattan and Fordham.

Scott scored 12 points in a 60-59 quarterfinal loss to the New York Panthers, a game the Rocks led most of the way until late in the game. Jerel buried two three-pointers and another long range shot to show his game is diversified.

WHAT JIM HART SAYS ABOUT JEREL SCOTT'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

"He is a profilic scorer. He doesn't have any weakness. He can score from anywhere on the court."

And Scott proved that Hart was accurate about his thoughts on Jerel's individual game.

MORE OF 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.
