As a sophomore at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in downtown Minneapolis forward Jericho Sims led a still relatively new basketball program to 15 wins averaging 17.2 points per game last winter.  Sims then joined Net Gain Sports 17 and Under Team and blew up in July grabbing six high major scholarship offers.

 “Jericho is a very versatile player, with an extremely high upside,” said Net Gain Coach Al Harris.  “Offensively and defensively he has all the tools with a combination of gifted athleticism.    
 “(Jericho is) an athlete that has the length to play a frontcourt position along with a fluent skill set to be an efficient perimeter player. He's still developing his strength as he's now 205 pounds.”   
 NHR watched Sims play in the spring, then again in June a few games, another few times in early July, and each and every time Sims improved.
  
 Next thing you know Jericho had a tremendous game in front of numerous coaches at the Under Armour Championships in Atlanta and scholarships
