Louisiana Elite lost the first game in bracket play to Philly Pride 70-62. Jaemyn Brakefield was terrific all game leading the way with 21 points & Jahein Spencer poured in 17 points in a losing effort.
Louisiana Elite bounced back with two impressive wins on day two showing why they are one of the better teams on the UA circuit this summer. In the first game they defeated Rising Stars 75-64 & was led by stud Jalen Cook with 17 points. Cook did an excellent job of controlling the pace of the game with his ability to score it at all three levels on the floor along with setting his teammates up for easy buckets. Joe Cooper & Jahein Spencer poured in 13 points a piece, while Jaemyn Brakefield added 12 points.
In the second game LA Elite defeated Virginia Elite 74-64 behind a hell of a performance from Jahein Spencer who led all scorers with 22 points. Jalen Cook added 14 points & Jaemyn Brakefield chipped in 12 points. The 3 headed monster of Brakefield, Cook, & Spencer is a sight to see every game along with some other talented players on this LA Elite team. And by adding Jaemyn Brakefield & Joe Cooper to a already talented roster don’t be surprised if this team is in the mix to win UA Finals in Las Vegas.
Louisiana Elite 17U lost to a tough New Heights team 63-54 on day 1 of the Under Armour Challenge Showcase. 5 star prospect Jaemyn Brakefield made his debut for the first time on the Under Armour circuit since switching over from Adidas & he had every major D-1 coach in attendance to see him on day one. Brakefield only finished with 12 points in the game but he made it clear that he was the best player on the court. Jalen Cook was stellar leading Louisiana Elite with 18 points & Jahein Spencer chipped in 13 points.
E.D White 3 star athlete Brandon Legendre made it official on Sunday commmiting to the University of Louisiana-Lafayette at their elite prospect camp.
1st year Louisiana-Lafayette head coach Billy Napier has to be ecstatic to keep the highly touted Legendre in the state with all the major D-1 offers he’s picked up. Legendre currently holds offers from Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, UTSA, TCU, SMU, Arizona St, Kansas, West Virginia, Kentucky, & many more. It’s evident that coach Napier & his staff made a big impression on Legendre from the beginning since he took the job this past December. “From the very beginning ULL felt like home,” Legendre said. “Coach Napier & his staff really believe in me as a player, but more as a man & that was big for me. It was big to me how he always talked about making his players into better men. He is a guy I see myself loving to work with every single day. Their offense is a system I could thrive in & see myself doing great things.”
Legendre will only have to go about a hour & a half up the road to go to school & he emphasized how that played a part into his decision to stay close to home. “Staying close to home is huge to me,” Legendre said. “I can’t remember a time that I’ve played & my family wasn’t there to watch me. After evaluating everything that was something I didn’t want to give up.”
Two weeks ago Coach Napier & his staff got big commitment from Rummel quarterback Chandler Fields. Legendre expressed how that was big to him because he felt they could do something special together in Lafayette. “Chandler & I have been talking a lot as of late ever since he committed,” Legendre said. “We’ve been talking about breaking records but most importantly winning is something we know we can definitely bring to the program. Me & Chandler know how awesome ULL is & we want to get more studs up there so they can see how great of a place it is as well.”
Legendre is arguably the most electrifying athlete in the state & when he touches the ball he can take it the distance at any given moment. This kid was clocked at a 4.39 laser at the Nike Opening camp this past April, which is why he’s a touchdown waiting to happen when he gets the ball. It’s no doubt ULL got a steal & I see coach Napier’s offense fitting Legendre very well when he gets there come next year.
