R.J. Barrett, 5-Star Super Soph Takes Over Chicago Elite Classic! Full Highlights
5-star 10th grader R.J. Barrett was the top prospect at this year’s Chicago Elite Classic. In its fifth year, the 2-day event held at UIC Pavilion near downtown showcases
both the top teams and players from the Chicago area as well as from across the USA.
Widely considered one of the top players in the Class of 2019, 6’7, 16 year old Canadian-born R.J. backed up his ranking in front of the Chicago crowd. Scouting services have Barrett currently ranked 2nd (Rivals), 1st (Scout), 2nd (247) and 1st in the ESPN 25 overall in the Class of 2019.
In perhaps the biggest mismatch of the day, Barrett’s loaded, nationally-ranked Montverde Academy (FL) faced suburban Evanston HS (public school).
While Evanston gave their best effort, Montverde prevailed 82-51 with Barrett showing his complete, all-around game.
Check out these raw highlights from the Chicago Elite Classic. Rowan ‘R.J.’ Barrett Jr. finished with 23 points, 9 rebounds to go with numerous assists and blocks.
