Chicago Summer Jam Review!!!!!
Updated: Jul 15
I was at the Chicago Summer Jam last weekend. It was a live period for college coaches. Thanks to Toi Baylor and her staff for putting on a great event. I saw a lot of small college level players in the gym. Here's some of them who had very good performances.
TEAM MACK 2025: Yes this team is sponsored by my cousin Shelvin Mack. This is the 15U team who finished 4-1 for the event making it to the semifinals in their bracket. Top players are 6'0" shooting guard Elijah Craig who is a nice scorer at all three levels, 5'10" shooting guard Rashard Faulkner is a lefty who attacks the basket and scores at the rim. Andrew Noble is a 6'5" power forward who scores at the rim and hits the glass doing the dirty work for the team. Fun player to watch is 5'3" point guard Christopher Wright who is a pesky defender who gets steals in bunches. Do not put the ball down because he'll take it away from you. Of course a mention of my cousins Kristian Gerton 6'0" forward who is a slasher to the basket and pesky defender, Montae Ashford 5'10" point guard who likes to attack the basket and a serviceable three point shot. Rest of the roster: Garryon McClain. Shoutout to Oreese Ivery who coaches the team.
Top team I saw: BROOKTOWN FORCE(IL): Based out of Bolingbrook this team won the 17U Platinum Championship with ease. Most talented team here and showed it. Best player was Trevon Roots 6'6" wing who showed rim protection, scoring on the interior, and a good three point shot. Eduardo Chiquito is a big time three point sniper as a 6'3" wing. Jakhi Gary is a smooth 6'1" point guard who can run a team and get to the rim with ease and has a nice three point shot. Big time sleeper who coaches need to look at is Jenkins Adeji from Antwerp, Belgium. He's a 6'5" athletic wing who will dunk on you and is a big time slasher and finish at the rim.
Top players at the event:
Kymoni Hunt, 5'11" shooting guard, Milwaukee Ballaz Elite 2024 is a big time scorer on all three levels. Very explosive on the offensive end of the court.
