Harlem guard picks up his 16th offer!

The NYC guard has been terrorizing the EYBL circuit

Rising high major prospect Anthony Nelson of South Kent (CT) ’18 has a growing list of offers, the latest of which coming from San Diego. The 6’4 Harlem raised southpaw has been blowing up this spring and colleges have been taking notice.

“I feel like I’ve been playing well, showing people how efficient I am.”

Nelson showed his defensive capabilities by finishing top 3 in steals in the EYBL, at times completely shutting top guards down. “I feel like I’ve been playing well, showing people how efficient I am,” He says. “But I feel like I can improve on my decision making.” Nelson was the lead guard in this years New York Lightning squad which made Peach Jam after a disappointing season last year. With him at the helm, the Lightning went 10-6 and turned some heads in the process. AAU season is still in full swing, and Nelson is trying to take full advantage of the time he has left. “Going into July I’m going to try to win a peach jam championship,” He says.
