The Illinois Bobcats were very lucky that Jeronne Maymom chose them. So also will be the university chosen by this 6-6 swingman from Madison, WI. His versatility, strength and athleticism have him ranked in a lot of people’s top 50.
Maymon fits in the Tayshaun Prince mold of the versatile 3-man that brings skills in just about every aspect of the game there is. Offensively he can theoretically play four positions, though he is a natural 3. He brings the ball up the floor when asked. He hardly ever shoots the ball from outside unless his team is down a lot late. He probably would shoot more if he did not get to the hoop with such incredible ease. He almost never gets his shot blocked. His specialty is getting to the foul line where he gets nearly half his points and shoots a good percentage with a smooth stroke. He is an absolute iron man. He played 79 out of the 80 minutes his team played on this afternoon. He looked a little winded toward the end, but still was slicing through the lane to convert some easy lay-ups. He gets a lot of second chance points and has vice-grips for rebounding hands. He is an above average passer and often surprises teammates with his no-looks. He is pretty soft spoken and never argues with the refs (and it was definitely warranted in this tournament). In the GBOA he guarded the other teams best non point guard about 90% of the time showing decent weak side shot blocking ability. However he is definitely most disruptive defensively in the passing lanes where his long arms reek havoc on teams who “windshield wipe” in their half court offense.
Versatility is the key word here. He can do many different things for Baylor, Marquette, Indiana, WISCGB, or wherever he goes. Seeing Indiana and Marquette on his list is very interesting due to the recent coaching carousel. One thing that was very noticeable was his relationship with his parents. They seem very close with him and it wouldn’t be a surprise if they were pivotal in his choice of school.
Jeronne Maymon is the fastest rising player in the 2009 class in Wisconsin and he is a guy that a lot of schools will follow closely this spring and summer. Maymon is transitioning from the post to the perimeter and still needs to work on his jump shot and his ball handling. He is a great athlete, is extremely long and wiry and plays all over the court. He has a chance to be a great defender in college. He is developing his 3-point shot and is becoming more consistent and comfortable on the perimeter each day. He has tremendous upside and continues to improve with each game. He still needs to work on his consistency and he needs to “bring it” every game. Maymon is a talent who, as long as he continues to work, may become one of the most sought after players in the class in Wisconsin. -ESPN.com
Bob Gibbons of ESPN, who has rated high school basketball prospects for many years, tabbed the 6-foot-6 Maymon the 33rd-best prospect in the country in updated ratings released Wednesday. Additionally Both Maymon and Wilson stand atop the updated Wishoops.net player rankings released today for the class of 2009 as well, though for the first time Maymon has taken over the No. 1 spot with Wilson coming in a very close No. 2.
