(2016) Algevon Eichelberger Jr. Sparks Recruitment Interest
Colleges recruiting a middle school basketball player is not always the norm, but it is starting to become more prevalent among elite players. Algevon Eichelberger Jr, a 6'5 PF out of Saginaw, Mi, is one of those elite players schools are now paying attention to. He received a recruiting letter from Iowa of the Big Ten conference and we found out that it's not his first. He has also received interest from the University of Detroit of the Horizon Conference. Algevon currently attends Reuben Daniels Middle School and will be attending Saginaw High School in the Fall. I watched Algevon at the Jr. All American Camp and at AAU Nationals last year. I was very impressed with his foot work, his ability to score at will in the paint, and how he pushed the ball on the break. If he keeps improving, he should have letters by the garbage bag full coming to his door. So, congratulations to Algevon and all the other elite players out there being recruited as middle schoolers. Keep working hard!
