Recently, our good friends at Prep Hoops Ohio published a list of their Ohio All-Freshman Teams. As we suspected, a number of Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase alumni made the list, including the entire “First Team!” Because the Buckeye Prep Report has done a great job of both identifying and attracting the best up and coming players in the state (and nation for that matter) to our events, it should come as no surprise that our alumni go on to be stars at the high school, college and even NBA level.
You don’t have to attend Buckeye Prep Report-sponsored events to achieve your goals, but our record of featuring the “stars of tomorrow” is unmatched in the state and region, and the early exposure we provide helps players standout in the crowd. It should also be noted that every player on Prep Hoops Ohio’s First Team (as an 8th grader) was selected to participate in the 2013 Ohio North vs South All-Star Game and was a standout. The Ohio North vs SouthAll-Star Games were the first of their kind and have been well received by elite players from around the state. Below is Prep Hoops Ohio’s complete list of All-Freshman Teams. Congratulations to all of out alums as they pursue their basketball-related dreams!
