|Jeremiah Francis Represents Ohio in Top 50|
Recently, Jeff Meadows and Hoopsreport.com dropped their list of the top 50 players in the class of 2019 (7th grade), and as expected, almost 30 of the 50 players listed participated in the inaugural season of the National Youth Basketball League (NYBL). As was the case at the 6th grade AAU Nationals a few weeks ago, the NYBL was well represented on the national scene. North Carolina Prep’s Wendell Moore was ranked as the number 1 player in the country and is projected as a “pro” by the Hoops Report.
In addition, of the top 10 players on the list, 6 of them are NYBL alums. Also, the Buckeye State was well represented on the list, as 2 of our own were listed among the top 10 seventh graders in the nation. Jeremiah Francis (#4) Jordan Mitchell (#9) both reside in central Ohio and are among the best the class has to offer.

If you want to see these kids in actions, more than half the players on Hoop Reports’ list will be participating in the Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase on September 21st and 22nd. By most accounts, the exposure offered by the NYBL undoubtedly led to the aforementioned players receiving national attention! Congratulations to all of the NYBL players for this most significant accomplishment!
