LATEST UPDATE: Jeriel Henriquez has been impressive this season on a team that is fun to watch -- Long Island Lutheran. The coaching staff at Long Island Lutheran does a nice job in getting its players all involved offensively. And when one has a hot hand, they make sure that particular player receives more touches. Jeriel has shown he has the ability to score from many places on the floor.

Below are previous evaluations on his game:

STRENGTHS: Unlimited range, tremendous leaper, explosive first step and possesses good body control

WEAKNESS: Jeriel will sometimes try to do too much with the rock

EVALUATION: Jeriel combines the city game where he grew up with the structure of the Long Island game making a nice combination of confidence, attitude, and basketball sense.

He can get to the basket and finish with a thunderous dunk. He sometimes dribbles too much but Coach Brian Carey of Long Island Lutheran is making a point of it to him and he has made big improvements in that area.
