|Xaver Simpson-Michigan Pledge|
Today players from across the nation pledged their commitment to colleges and universities with their signatures affixed to National Letters of Intent (NLOI). One such player was Lima’s Xavior Simpson, who committed to the University of Michigan. Although their have been numerous players who have honed their skills through participation in Buckeye Prep Elite Showcases, we’re not sure any one player had more success or attended more events in their career than did Simpson. A look though the Buckeye Prep archives reflects that Simpson was selected as a MVP in every elite showcase he attended from about the 5th grade though his high school career. Not only did Simpson excel at an unprecedented level, he did so with class and grace. We at Buckeye Prep are extremely proud of Simpson’s accomplishments and consider him a huge part of the Buckeye Prep Family!

Along with Simpson, we congratulate all of the players in the class of 2016 (there are many) who realized a dream today with their commitments! As most Ohio basketball fans well know, the class of 2016 was one of the most talented classes in the history of the state, and Buckeye Prep had the opportunity to watch them develop from the time they were in the forth grade. Below are some links to a couple of lists, one of which is a list of some of the top 2016 players who attended our events, a number of whom signed NLOIs, and a list of Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase alumni. We are extremely proud of our long history of providing a platform for players to receive elite competition and national exposure!
