Justin Crosgile

Justin Crosgile, class of 2009 who plays for Wayne Depaul Catholic (and the Roadrunners), is a 5'11" point guard. I had the pleasure of coaching him in the Eddie Griffith Challenge last week, and a pleasure it was. He was the co-MVP with Tamir "Pop" Jackson and Justin put on a show. He was burying threes from downtown, locking down on the Philly guards (Malik Wayans is a beast, but Justin did not back down at all), and getting in the lane with some amazing finishes in traffic. Another thing I like about Justin was that he was coachable; he and I met for the first time that night, and he was a sponge, wanting to soak up all of the knowledge possible. The best part was that he never made excuses, he just worked very hard every minute on the court.

I project Justin as a very solid A-10 player, and if he continues to improve and has a big spring/summer playing for the Roadrunners, he may just end up a Big East or Big Ten guard. I think Penn State likes him, but in conversations with some folks this week, the top A-10 programs are all over him. Keep an eye on this guy.

How about those Red Sox?
