There are a number of great high schools basketball players in the Philadelphia area. The fans will get a chance to see a lot of top scholastic players at the Wayne Ellington presents The All City Classic at Girard College, 2101 S. College Ave. The classic will be held on Friday at 5 p.m. Admission is $10.
“It’s good exposure for the players,” said Charles Monroe, the classic’s organizer. “That’s the big thing. We’re going to have Tom Konchalski (HSBI Report) and Al Rubin (Hoop Scoop) who work for the high school scouting services. A lot of Division I coaches read their reports.”
“Also, I really appreciate the support that Wayne Ellington has given us. Wayne played in the classic before he went to North Carolina. Now, he’s in the NBA (Cleveland Cavaliers). He remembers how much the All City Classic helped him as well as other players in the area. This should be good classic. We have a lot of good players.”
The classic will have one freshman game, two sophomore games and one game for juniors. Some of these players are already established and on the radar in terms of recruiting. However, there are some relatively unknown players who will benefit from this showcase.
