Myers Park (NC) is one of the best teams in North Carolina, and 2023 forward Elijah Strong is a big factor into that, leading the Mustangs in scoring at over 15 points per game this season.
In late January, Strong decommitted from Wofford, making him one of the better unsigned forwards in the southeast. Since then, he has heard from a number of Division I programs including East Carolina, St. Bonaventure, South Carolina, Liberty, San Diego, Iona, Duquesne, High Point, Western Carolina, and FAU among many others.
Strong was a top performer on our stage this past spring with Team Curry. He's got a very strong build at 6-foot-8 paired with an extremely high skill level on the interior as well as on the perimeter. He's taken huge strides with his movement & athleticism and should be a no-brainer for MM & MM+ programs.
