DMV Preps Player Spotlight James Bishop: Locked & Loaded

Since stealing the show at the Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom Camp, James Bishop has propelled his name and his game onto the national stage and is considered to be one of the fastest risers in the class of 2019.  Bishop whose status as an elite level PG in known well throughout the DMV area is now garnering major attention nationally as he continues to impress scout across the country who have had the opportunity to see him compete.  Most recently Bishop was honored with the exclusive invite to Houston, Texas for the John Lucas International Camp and he is also at the top of the charts for consideration into the Middle School All-American Game to be held this summer in the DC Metro Area.

Bishop is a sleek scoring lead prospect who plays with poise, advances the ball well in transition, and converts buckets efficiently in the paint area with either hand – the array of finishes he uses and is able to convert it well beyond his years and he does so at a very high percentage – Bishops consistency at finishing is super and scintillating and he is maybe the DMV’s best 3D-Man; he drives, he draws, he dishes exemplifying his natural unselfish nature.  He has very good vision and while locating open teammates he is very adept at hitting shooters right in their shooting pockets. 

James has really improved his athleticism and strength in recent months which now allows him to absorb contact on the perimeter and in the paint.  As many are fully aware the Middle School game of basketball is about development and not peaking too early James Bishop is a prime example of growth and development as he continues to improve and impress as he prepares for the next level.  Bishop will continue to be one of the area’s best for the immediate future but his effort on and off the court are quickly moving his profile will beyond this area and into national consideration as a top national PG prospect.

Check out James Bishop below at the recent Winter Warz event in New Jersey where he went for an impressive 25-point effort against one of 2019’s best teams, Rio National.
