Coach Jonathan Hemingway had some high praises for JeLan Roberson and Choncie Banks as they competed against some of the areas top talent.
JeLan Roberson (2016) is a combo guard from Desoto Central (MS).
” Roberson plays the game with an enthusiasm that is infectious for everyone around him. His ability to get into the lane and create plays opened up the game for his teammates and led to multiple scoring opportunities. He earned the nickname “Elfrid Payton” after the camp because of his play-making ability and floppy hair as a point guard. However, do not sleep on Roberson’s jumper. He has solid form and proved that he can hit the open 3-pointer with his feet set. Roberson represented the large contingent of players from Mississippi very well on Saturday morning.”
Choncie Banks (2015) is a stretch four from The Soulsville Charter School in Memphis, TN. College coaches should really take a look at this unsigned senior.
” The 6-foot-4 forward made a name for himself at the camp by working hard, rebounding and do many of the dirty jobs on the court. Because of that willingness to work, Banks turned out one of the most productive performances at the camp. He scored multiple buckets and snagged rebounds consistently”
We are proud of these young men accomplishments and can’t wait to see them play on the next level.
