Player Spotlight: 2012 Aly Mohamed of Houston Trent International

Only 10 days out from the first live event of the NCAA recruiting period various roster tweaks are occurring as top level players are making decisions on where their best opportunity is for playing time and exposure in the key July period.  There’s no doubt that the Houston Defenders are one of the country’s elite teams this year and are on every college coaches radar.  So, too are the Texas D1 Ambassadors-Houston who are loaded with talent.  The Defenders have Big Shaq Cleare who commands and deserves lots of playing time.  2012 big man, Aly Mohamed wants more time for his game to shine.

On Sunday,  2012 6’9″ Aly Mohamed has crossed over to the Texas D1 Ambassadors camp and gives the orange and black a true man in the middle at 6’9″ and 260 lbs.  The native of Egypt who played last season for Houston Trent International is a high, high level player.  He has a special combination of size, strength and a wide ranging and intriguing skill set that makes the sky the limit for him.  Down low he has great footwork and an assortment of nifty low post moves.  When he faces the basket he can knock down the mid range shot. In fact, he can shoot the three too.  He is devastatingly accurate as a passer out of the high post as well.  Our players are quickl dreading practicing against him because he is PHYSICAL.  However, they can’t wait until the games begin and he’s on their side of the ball because he is a PRESENCE.

Check out his video below from a year ago.  He’s that much better again today as witnessed by his outstanding performance at the recent Under Armour Camp in Atlanta, GA.  Overall he graded out as the #3 ranked player at the UA Atlanta Camp.

Mohamed joins a talented D1 Ambassador frontline that includes 2011 F 6’9″ Keynan “Slim” Willis of Crosby, 2013 6’9″ Johnathan Motley of Houston Northshore, 2012 F 6’8″ Maurice Letcher-Ellis of Houston Yates,  2014 F 6’8″ Kendrick Morris of Phillips Exeter (NH)  and 2013 F 6’7″ Parker Callender of Houston Clear Springs.

His backcourt mates are a fearsome foursome of 2012 guards.  Chase Brogna of Houston St. Thomas, Joshua Hagins of Bossier City Airlne (LA), Devon Turk of Houston St. Pius, NBA Player’s Camper Alex Caruso of College Station A&M Consolidated and 2011 G Jalen Washington of Pflugerville Hendrickson.

Great American Shootout -Pearland Wrap Ups

For many of Texas’ teams with their sights set on the July recruiting period, the Great American Shootout-Pearland is a final tune up before they hit the trail in search of scholarship opportunities for their athletes.  The Texas D1 Ambassadors-San Antonio arrived in Pearland with the goal of defending the championship they’d won 3 weeks ago at the GASO in Bryan/College Station, TX.

Texas D1 was super pooled and went through their 3 pool games unscathed:

GASO Pool Play:
Texas D1 Ambassadors-San Antonio 60  Team Texas-San Antonio 53
Team Texas jumped on top 9-3, but Texas D1 went on a 29-14 run to lead comfortably at the half. 2012  Uche Ofoegbu of San Antonio Stevens led the balanced scoring with 15 points.  He’s getting recruited mid to high major.  He’s receiving serious consideration from SMU, Tulane, Colorado, Texas A&M, Stanford, Penn State and Yale just to name a few.  

2012 Adam Perez of San Antonio Clark dropped 13 in support of Ofoegbu while 2013 G Justin Graham was the best player on the floor for Team Texas-San Antonio as he had 15 points and handled constant pressure well in the loss.

2012 Uche Ofoegbu of San Antonio Stevens keeps raising the level of his game.

Texas D1 Ambasadors 57  Deron Williams Elite 48

Once again Uche Ofoegbu led the way in the scoring department as he notched 21.  2012 P 6’9″ Connor Lammert had 10,  as did 2012 G Matt Gramling.  2012 F Antoine Burrell had 13 for D-Will Elite. 

Texas D1 Ambassadors-San Antonio 61  Houston Lynx 55
2012 G Matt Gramling showed why his San Antonio MacArthur squad went deep into the Texas 5A State Playoffs as he scored 20 points and had several key assists in the win over a solid Lynx squad.  2012 Jacolby Green led the Lynx with 13 points.

GASO Bracket Play: 1st Round

Texas D1 Ambassadors-San Antonio 64  Houston Starting 5 Phenoms 52
Balanced scoring was the order of the day as Texas D1 went deep into their bench.  Adam Perez, 2012 G Niko Maxwell of San Antonio Clark and 2012 Matt Gramling all had 12 points as they cruised to the W.

GASO Bracket Play: 2nd Round

Texas D1 Ambasadors-San Antonio 75 Corpus Christi Islanders 60
As Yogi Berra used to say, “It’s deja vu all over again” as for the 3rd consecutive GASO event the Islanders were sent packing by Texas D1.  The Islanders went up 13-4 but popped their cork too early as Texas D1 kept it’s composure and came roaring back.  The Texas D1 squad is a reflection of even keeled, classy Coach Paul Josephs. They just don’t get rattled. It was a close game until coaching techs took the wind out of the Islanders sails, sinking their ship.  2012 W 6’6″ Jeffrey Rodewald, MVP of his district with Alamo Heights gave them the business as he dropped 22 points, recored double digit rebounds and 6 blocks.  Adam Perez also added 22 in the blowout.

2012 Jeffrey Rodewald of San Antonio Alamo Heights is moving up the D1 radar as July nears.

GASO Semi Finals

Texas D1 Ambassadors-San Antonio 51  San Antonio Legends 44

There’s only one legendary group out of San Antonio, TX and that’s the D1 Ambassadors with 96 D1 players and counting.  In a spirited affair, Texas D1 went on a late 18-5 run to win going away.  Credit Jeffrey Rodewald’s high revving motor and Adam Perez penetrating to the paint at will as the keys to victory.  2012 Taurean Waller-Prince was the best player on the other side of the ball as he had 14 in the loss.

GASO Championship

Houston Hoopstars Elite 60 Texas D1 Ambassadors 51

In the third meeting of heavyweights in the past three weeks, the Houston Hoopstars Elite downed the Texas D1 Ambassadors in a great summer basketball game.  The Hoopstars led by double digits several times, and Texas D1 kept battling back.  With less than 2 minutes remaining Texas D1 had two chances to knot the score at 54 but could not get it done against a well coached, and talented Hoopstars squad.

Not too often that summer games are kind to big men in terms of flow and mathups but for the second straight GASO championship game as the two Pangos All American Campers: 2012 Cameron Ridley (Texas commit) and Connor Lammert battled all game long with intense post play.  Both kids are really good, both academically as well as in a basketall sense.  It’s going to be a great July recruiting period for Texas players as they head on the road for the July period.  Good luck and safe travels to all!

2012 PG Michael Hardge of Georgetown

Hardge is a scoring point who can get to the rim and elevate to finish against much bigger players.  He’s superior at taking contact and going to the free throw line.  Hardge’s quickness is an asset defensively as well where he’s a lockdown defender. Check out this video from a high school game (Hardge is #15 in white).

The son of former New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox player, Big Mike Hardge he knows what it takes to be successful at the highest level. He’ll be on the recruiting trail with the Texas D1 Ambassadors-Austin at the following events:

Player Spotlight: 2012 PG Joshua Hagins of Bosssier City Airine (LA)

The State of Louisiana is chock full of great athletes, many with the pedigrees of pros.  There are a couple of PG’s there with the complete package, including academics.  Down on the Bayou and throughout the country most everyone knows New Orleans St. Augustine’s Javan Felix who has made a national name for himself.  The “other guy” is ready for his coming out party this July.  He resides upstate, his name is Josh Hagins from Bossier City Airline.  He earned  5A All State honors this past season.

2012 G Josh Hagins of Bossier City Airline

Hagins is the latest player In our long tradition of great players from Louisiana who have suited up for the Texas D1 Ambassadors over the years. (Matt Derenbecker-LSU, Brian Williams-Oklahoma State, Trevante Drye-Tulane ..to name a few). He’ll strap it on this July with the Texas D1 Ambassadors-Houston squad as they travel fom coast to coast putting their talents on display for hundreds of Division 1 coaches.

For Hagins it all starts on defense where he’s an outstanding on ball defender.  On offense when the ball is in his hands he’s able to do what all great PG’s do…get in the lane where he draws defenders and hits the open man.  He is tough to stay in front of but if you sag off him he’s more than capable of hitting an assortment of midrange shots or he’s also a threat to let fly his pretty rainbow three pointer.  He’ll compete alog with his D1 mates at the following live recruiting events.
