INDIANAPOLIS, In. -- While he might not have been the "best" player at last weekend's MiddleSchoolHoops Camp, our favorite player was a young guard out of DC. A player that almost is on almost no one's radar, Judah Jordan is on track to be a big time player by the time he gets to the end of high school. The 2019 guard was consistently great through the camp, getting buckets at will and earning a spot as one of the best 5 players in attendence.
The young guard excels at getting to the rim off the bounce and has already started to understand how to operate in the mid-range area. His 3 ball is streaky right now but he can definitely make shots from deep. The young guard gets teammates involved on the drive and kick. He has all the tools to be a high-level on-ball defender as he already gets a large number of steals.
Judah really feels like his physical development will help his game go further as well as bringing consistency to his jumpshot. "I actually have a lot I can work on, including ball-handling, making the right reads using screens, and being more vocal on the court. I really want to be the leader of every team I play on, that's my job as the point guard."
He has started high school at Capitol Christian in Washington, DC and should slide into place as a major contributor on his high school team immediately. We think as his high school plays in high profile games and events, he will begin to really bust onto the scene.
He told me his goals for this high school season include: "getting my hands on that first offer, along with more to come" and "gaining experience and getting used to playing against players more physically advanced than me." He thinks a good high school season will get him primed for a big AAU season with his Team Loaded (DC) squad that will play this season on the Adidas Gauntlet.
On the court is not the only place Judah excels, however. He has already registered a score of 1600 on the SAT and has been taking college classes as a freshman at Capitol Christian. He is, by all accounts, a great kid and is already very well-spoken.
He was our favorite prospect at the MSH camp for a reason and was even more fun to get to know throughout the weekend. Judah has all the makings of a high major guard and should be a nationally ranked player as time goes on.
