For Michael Jordan it was the tongue-wagging fade away jump shot, for Allen Iverson it was the ankle-breaking killer crossover and for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar it was the net-scorching sky hook; the recurring theme among all great players is great moves.

Every Monday during the football season we’ll scour the globe to check in with the country’s most elite players and have them spill the tea and break down on one of the many sure-fire juke moves they implement throughout the course of a game.

This week we caught up with Miller Grove (Lithonia, Ga.) point guard Alterique Gilbert, a five-star recruit who is signed to Connecticut.

THE MOVE: The In-and-Out Crossover

THE EXECUTION: “The crossover has to be cat-quick! After that, maybe I’ll do a little hesitation to get to the basket or look for a pull-up jumper.”

THE SELL: “No stopping this whatsoever.”

Watch how Alterique Gilbert gets it done.
