Shavar Newkirk is finally at his dream high school located in Harlem, NY. He lives within walking distance, a sixteen block radius.
Newkirk’s rank should go up this year to a top 20 player in the nation. He’s widely considered the best player in NY for the class of 2014, behind Isaiah Whitehead.
Rice High School is where Coach Maurice Hicks produced Edgar Sosa, Kemba Walker (Pic left/below), and most recently Kadeem Jack (Pic right) of Rutgers University. The Rebirth is with the New Varsity Coach Dwayne Mitchell and his first recruit Shavar Newkirk aka “Mecca”.
We saw Shavar at age 11, when he played for Coach Mark Jerome/Riverside Hawks. Today, Newkirk is one of the most talked about high school freshman’s in New York City basketball history.
Shavar Newkirk’s new video features Felipe Lopez, a former Rice and NBA player. Lopez made the front cover of Sports Illustrated‘s Nov. 24, 1994 issue.
Closely watch “Mecca” give the business to your favorite player! This is another Middle School Elite exclusive.
