The 2021 season was not kind to all teams as some were able to play over 10 games, while others were limited to as few as four. The lack of games did not stop newcomers making an immediate impact on their team, especially in Non-Public A. Here are the top impact newcomers in Non-Public A.

Elliot Cadeau Elliot Cadeau 6'2" | PG Bergen Catholic | 2024 State NJ , 6’2 PG Bergen Catholic 2024

It’s hard for a freshman to make an instant impact on one of the top team’s in the state, but Cadeau was able to do that. The 6’2 guard has a good handle and the athleticism to finish above the rim. Cadeau plays with a scorer’s mentality as evidenced by his 30-point performance against St. Joseph (Mont.) He has proven to be more than just a scorer with three games of six or mores assists including 10 against Gill St. Bernard’s. Cadeau has earned the title as the top prospect in the 2024 class and has an extremely bright future ahead of him.

Tarik Watson Tarik Watson 6'7" | SF Don Bosco Prep | 2024 State NJ , 6’8 SF/PF Don Bosco Prep 2024

The Ironmen are one of the top teams in Bergen County as they have a stellar young frontcourt duo in the Watson brothers.
