West Coast Elite`s 17U Under Armour Association team has checked in at number 10 on the Indihoops rankings in what is poised to be one of the most talented groups to take the court since the program’s inception. The team is led by five-star guards 2019 Josh Green (IMG Academy), and 2020 Nico Mannion (Pinnacle; AZ). Joining Mannion and Green is fellow five-star prospect Jason Harris who is one of the top big men in the United States. On the wing, four star shooting guard Tory San Antonio (Rancho Verde) with his high level athletic ability and playmaking is expected to be a major contributor as the program seeks to capture the Under Armour Association this year. Joined on the wing is Julian Rishwain (Notre Dame) who is one of the top shooters in the country, exploding on to the scene during last year’s circuit. 2019 Oscar Lopez (Bishop Montgomery), 2019 Max Guinn (Francis Parker), and 2019 DJ Rodman (J Serra) are all versatile wings who are coming off successful high school seasons. Rounding out the roster is 2019 Point Guard Amani Harris (St. Bernard’s) who`s athletic ability, and defensive acumen will lead to major contributions on this loaded roster. 2019 Trey Anderson (SD Mater Dei) is expected to bring his length, and athletic ability around the rim after a successful high school season.
West Coach Elite Under Armor 17U Head Coach George Zedan on being ranked; “We are very appreciative of the lofty preseason ranking which solidifies West Coast Elite being one of the top teams in the country. However, our primary focus will be on continuing to build our culture of team first."
West Coast Elite Under Armour Director Donley Minor on this year’s 17U UAA team; “I am truly excited about this team, I’m extremely excited that we return five players from last year’s 16U team in Nico, Josh, Julian, DJ, and Amani, and with the additions of Jason, Tory, Oscar, and Max gives us a lot of depth and returning Trey Anderson gives us the experienced that will help put us over the top. I look at our program and I see a player like Amani Harris who’s been with the program since the 7th grade and then we look at Nico and Josh that started playing with us at the 15U, then 16U, and now 17U, shows how being consistent and willing to trust the process really pays off. Starting off at 10th in the country is a good start but now it’s time to go out and prove it on the court.”
West Coast Elite Under Armour teams will take the court this Spring.
