Brookwood Elite is back. Last summer after a sluggish 1-4 start to the Adidas Gauntlet, the boys from La Belle Province wheeled off an incredible 18 game winning streak.
Their successful summer included an Adidas Invitational Final 4 and Adidas Super 64 Elite 8 finish.
This summer Brookwood Elite returns with a collection of high profile talent eager to make Canadian hoops fans proud again playing in America.
Fresh off his strong season with West Oaks, FL Richardson Maitre will facilitate and be the staw that stirs the drink for this 17U roster representing Montreal, QC. Maitre a 6’0” point guard is entering the live period with interest from Auburn, Arkansas, Baylor and Missouri.
2016 6'5" Nikita Kasongo is an undersized four but makes up for it with his 6’8” wingspan and is one to keep an eye on.
2016 6’0” Kash Thomas is another key component who will offer relentless on the ball defending for Brookwood throughout this summer.
Kentebe “Junior” Farquhar is the only 2018 on the Brookwood roster but he is tough beyond his years. An ultra athletic player with some deft ball handling skills make Farquhar a bullet in the open court. After just one season playing in America, Junior is already drawing interest from prominent prep powers like Montverde and John Carroll. Next level wise the young man has a Baylor offer and Ohio State is keeping tabs.
Most intriguing prospect on Brookwood may be 2017 6’9” Anthony Longpre. Longpre a prototype stretch 4 has soft hands that catch the ball like a butterfly to a flower.
Longpre who played last season at Glenelg Country in Maryland has an offer from Georgetown and in February set his career high with 37 points. Wisconsin Badgers are the latest program to show serious interest in the prospect known in Quebec as La Rouge for his red locks.
Biniam Ghebredikan and Max Boursiquot should add rebounding and toughness for Brookwood to compete against elite American competition.
6’5” 205lbs Bourisqout in 2014-15 played high school ball domestically in the Ottawa area and was dominant. Max improved his guard skills significantly including handles and long range accuracy. It showed in his production in mid March during CYBL action iwhere Boursiquot was beastly dropping back to back 28 and 30 point performances versus stiff competition.
Looking to parlay his recent production on to the AAU scene, Boursiqout interest list already includes Davidson, Northeastern, Stonybrook and Binghampton as programs who have all inquired about his signature for post secondary school.
6'9" Ghebredikan was a member of the 2015 Canadian U18 FIBA Americas team that finished 2nd in Colorado Springs where he dropped 8 points and 9 rebounds in 20 minutes versus a tough Puerto Rico team. Ghebredikan also represented Canada last summer at Nike's Global Challenge in Chicago, Illinois.
