Dropped an IBL Record 68 points last year 2006-2007
 

Like his Portland Jefferson school teammate, Antone Jarrell (6'-6' Jr. SG/SF), whose Pump N Run Gold teammates simply call him "Tone",   is quickly becoming one of the top scorers on the west coast.

Antone has been a consistent scorer this spring,  first at the Double Pump Easter Tournament, then at Purdue for the Spiece Run N Slam, and finally culminating with the adidas EBO/EA Hoop Summit Championship game, where he nailed five three pointers and finished with 23 points and 11 rebounds.

Jarrell is a deceptive-looking player, and he appears decidedly slower than he really is. A great spot up shooter, he can also move the ball extremely well in the open court, and is also a very strong player under the boards. He has great leaping ability, and in addition to being a great outside shooter, also likes to slash to the hole and run the break. He's an extremely athletic player, who competes at both ends of the floor, and with his long arms, he's also an excellent shot blocker.

A player with great fundamentals, he has excellent footwork, and is also a smart team player, with good passing skills who, like his Portland teammate Brooks, also has some guard skills, as can be seen from his ability to hit the open man, share the ball, as well as his ability to either slash to the hole, or spot up outside for the long three. 

Antone impressed more than a few college scouts in Indiana and many coaches as well during the Easter Tourney, and we'd expect both Oregon and Oregon State to try to make major pushes to go after him; in conversations he's mentioned several other schools, all high majors, and whether those schools also show the same interest in him is something that will probably be determined by midway through the summer. Antone will attend adidas ABCD camp and then will fly to LA for the second session of the Pump West Coast All-Star Camp.  From there he'll be with Howard Avery (who also coaches him in Portland along with Brooks and Heath Bailey, and before them, Mike Dunleavy, Jr.), and will travel to the adidas Las Vegas Big Time Tournament and then back to LA again for the Best of Summer tourney at Cal State Dominguez Hills

Antone Jarrell Signs National Letter of Intent To Play Basketball at UTEP

F Antone Jarrell (Portland, Ore./Jefferson HS) has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball at UTEP, Miner head coach Jason Rabedeaux announced on Monday. Jarrell was also recruited by Pac-10 powers Oregon State, Washington State and USC.

The 6-6, 205-pound Jarrell averaged 15 points, 7.5 rebounds, four assists and three steals as a senior at Jefferson High School in Portland, Ore. Jefferson, the 2000 Oregon State 4A champions, finished the season 28-0 and was ranked fourth in the nation by USA Today.

"Antone Jarrell is rated as one of our top 100 seniors in the nation," said recruiting analyst Bob Gibbons, editor and publisher of All Star Sports. "Antone had a great year for a nationally-ranked team. He is an excellent catch for UTEP."

"Antone is a diamond in the rough," said Jarrell's high school coach, Marshall Haskins. "He has a chance to be a superstar in college. In three years people will say 'Wow, how did guys miss on him?'"

"I really felt Antone was one of the biggest sleepers in terms of the late signing period," Rabedeaux said. "After getting the chance to see him play, we were amazed that more schools were not recruiting him. Antone has a tremendous upside as a basketball player. He's 6-6, he's extremely long, he wears a size 18 shoe and he has an outstanding basketball body. As he continues to grow and mature, I have no doubt he will turn into one of the most spectacular athletes in the Western Athletic Conference. Antone epitomizes the type of freshmen we want to recruit to UTEP, as his talent level would allow him to play in any of the major conferences around the country. He is an extremely personable and intelligent young man, and will be a great representative for us in all facets of our program, the community and the university."
