Los Angeles, CA (Future150) -- 2018 SG Jules Bernard of Windward (CA) is one of the top prospects on the West Coast and had a adversity filled Sophomore season, but tried his hardest to make everything the best it could be. 

"Our season was composed of a lot of ups and downs with us having a coaching change midway through the season," Bernard said. "I feel like I really stepped up as a leader of the team. I just felt that I had to group everyone together and encourage all of us to continue to play hard, and don't think too much about the coaching change." 

Becoming a good leader on and off the court as just a Sophomore could pay dividends for Bernard later down the road, especially when he gets to the high major level of division one college basketball. 

"I'll tell you this, even though it was a difficult season we all got better mentally and physically," Bernard said. 

Plenty of college coaches have already came to know Bernard's game quite well as he already has an offer list composed of eight schools. Arizona State, Colorado State, Nevada, SMU, UCLA, USC, Utah, and Vanderbilt have all extended the wing guard a scholarship offer. 

"The schools that are showing me the most interest right now are USC and UCLA," Said Bernard. "Given the fact that they are in LA and are very close to me, it has been easier to go and visit those schools and attend some of their games." 

Bernard has enjoyed the recruiting process thoroughly and plans on visiting other schools down the road. 

"Being able to experience all these schools recruiting me, and learn all these amazing facts about every school is just fascinating and uplifitng," Bernard said. "I do plan on visiting other schools and experiencing their campuses and programs as well." 

Now that spring has arrived, the focus for most players shift to the AAU season where many younger kids like Bernard will get to showcase their talents to even more schools and coaches that haven't got a chance to see them play yet. 

"I'm ready to see some teammates that I haven't seen in a while, and ready to play against some top-tier competition," Bernard said. "I have been working hard to get my game in tip top shape for this summer, so I can show people what I can do. I just want to come out and have fun with my team, and win. A LOT." 

Continue to follow along with Future150 as we track Bernard's progress throughout the Spring and Summer during the wonderful season of AAU basketball.
