"The Best Player You've Never Heard Of"?
Got an interesting one here. Eitan Chemerinski, a 6-9 forward at Jewish Day School, has committed to play for Ivy League defending champion Cornell, first-year JDS Coach Matt Feldman said.
"He's going to be the best player you've never heard of, without a doubt," said Feldman, who previously was an assistant coach at St. John's. "He could start in the WCAC. I still think with a little bit of publicity he could be second-team All-Met. You're going to have to come watch. No one has given him any pub or any love. He could play the three in college."
Chemerinski had never played travel-team basketball before this past summer. After he played in one game, he phoned Feldman to say that "they had three guys who were 6-8. Coach, I've never played against anyone taller than 6-5." Even then, Feldman said, he opted to skip going to Las Vegas for the bigger tournaments in order to attend another camp that showcased players interested in Ivy League schools.
"He's totally off the radar," Feldman said.
