Wilson Explodes in Season Opener

Seth Wilson
Most everyone on the national travel team circuit is well aware of the exploits of Seth Wilson (6’1”/P/SG/2021/Ohio). Well, the Westlake community in Northeast Ohio has now experienced Wilson’s immense talent.  In his season debut, Wilson led his Lee Burnson Middle School squad to a 1-0 start on the strength of a double-double, and what amounted to a complete all-around game.  Specifically, Wilson’s stat line went like this: 33 points, 11 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 steals. Already possessing great size for his position, Wilson is an excellent rebounder, and is almost impossible keeping him out of the paint.  Wilson has solid ball skills, is always in attack mode and consistently finishes near the rim.

Not only is Wilson excelling on the hardwood, his 3.9 GPA in an academic-conscience community is quite impressive, and makes him a favorite for selection to one of our All-Academic Teams.  According to Wilson’s father, his son will be returning to Coach Danyelle Love’s Tru Game team (formally known as King James) this summer.  According to Love, she has been impressed with Wilson’s game since he was very young.  “My relationship with Seth started when he was 7 years old.  Even at that early age, Seth stood out from his peers.  His IQ at that age was outstanding,” said Love.  She’s not just impressed with Wilson’s on-court talent, as Coach Love is a fan of how Wilson carries himself off the court. “If you watch some of Seth’s interviews, he’s very humble, tries to talk about his teammates and how he can get better rather than talking about how good he is,” Love said. “Seth is a humble kid who is insightful and grateful for everything he gets,” continued Love.

Not only is Wilson ranked nationally by just about every credible middle school evaluators, he is easily considered the #1 player in the state of Ohio.  Moreover, his performances at our Buckeye Prep Elite Showcases and other elite events have resulted in all-star game selections and MVP accolades. Additionally, when we release our preseason Power Rankings in a few weeks, Wilson’s team could be at the top, and when we hand out our individual honors, Wilson is likely to pick up some more hardware. Finally, you can catch Wilson in action at our Marth 12th Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase.  Get you some popcorn and enjoy the show!
