For many young aspiring hoopers, the National Youth Basketball League (NYBL) provides a platform whereby they could both compete against elite players from across the country, while gaining national exposure. Chance Mott (6'3 PF Mansfield 2020) did just that this past season as he led his Mansfield Cavs teams to some surprising big time wins in the NYBL. Mott not only proved he could power a team, rebound and provide low post scoring, his standout performance (Top 5 Award winner) at the recent Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase confirmed his ability to excel at individual events. For his handwork, Mott has received national recognition and now appears on top player lists around the country. In fact, Prolific Performance recently ranked Mott as the #51st best player in the country. Already 6'3 and only in then 7th grade, Mott projects well and is worth tracking going forward. Pictured holding some hardware above, with continued growth and development, Mott should add a lot more peaces to his collection down the road.
