Heat Elite 17U Player Named USJN All Star!

Shout out to Heat Elite Mariah Hill(Rockford East, Class of 2020)for being named USJN Pool “B” All Star Team this past weekend at the USJN Midwest Qualifier tourney held in Lynwood IL. Mariah had missed all of last July and is picking up were she left off. At 5’6” she continues to be one of the most fiercest defenders in the floor, her strong build allows her to guard anyone! Mariah will look to attack offensively or pull up the 3 ball. College Coaches looking for a very intense guard with court vision, IQ, and finishes left or right should get in contact ASAP! Mariah missed all recruiting last summer and is a under recruited prospect.
