ACC targets among Top 45 performers at Nike Peach Jam

We recently returned from the Nike EYBL (Elite Youth Basketball League) Finals at the Peach Jam in North Augusta (S.C.), where 6-9 Seattle (Wash.) Nathan Hale rising senior power forward Michael Porter and 6-2 Norman (Okla.) North rising senior point guard Trae Young led Mokan Elite to the championship of the 17-Under Division.

In the process, Porter (now a Washington commit) firmly established himself as the current No. 1 prospect in the high school class of 2017, while Young has moved into the top five as the top point guard prospect in the same class.

In the championship game, a scintillating 93-65 trouncing of the New York-based PSA Cardinals, Porter tallied 33 points and shot 12-of-16 from the field (including 5-of-6 on three-pointers), and Young contributed 28 points (9-15 FGs and 6-10 3FG), 11 assists and three steals. Their play in the quarterfinals (a 33-point victory) and the semifinals (an 18-point triumph) was also terrific, as they totally dominated strong and talented foes.
