Check out 15 year old Jeremy Sochan putting on a show as he leads Itchen to a big 74-70 upset win over previously undefeated Barking Abbey in the EABL.
The 2003 born 6’7″ guard further cemented his status as potentially the best prospect in the UK right now, as he went 12-of-21 from the field, added 15 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals for Itchen – 12 of his 31 came in the fourth quarter, where he carried Itchen back from a double digit deficit to hand BA their first loss of the season.
With both Polish and American passports, Sochan was born in the US, but moved to Southampton around the age of three, moving to Milton Keynes at 7 – where he played for the Trojans until this year – returning to Solent this season, where he plays with the Kestrels and Itchen in the EABL.
The youngest player suiting up in NBL Division 1 this season, he represented England Under-15s at the Copenhagen Invitational, and despite expressing a desire to play with GB, the federation did not sort his passport to represent the GB U16s last summer, and so ended up suiting up for Poland at last summer’s FIBA U16 European Championships (dropping 14 points and 10 rebounds on 7-of-9 shooting in a win against GB).
Conversations with GB remain unresolved and he will be representing Poland again this summer.
It is widely expected this will be his last season in the country, as he eyes up high school and prep school offers in the US.
