When the spring Edition of the Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase tips off on March 9that Otterbein University, Ohio’s most elite 4th graders will command the big stage. For the first time ever, the class of 2027 will have the opportunity to participate in the prestigious Ohio North vs South All-Star Games. Also, for the first time ever, and because the class is so loaded with elite talent, and many of the top players have already expressed a significant interest in the game, a 3rd team will be added to the mix. For this event, the top players from northern, central and southern Ohio will compete to determine not only the best players in the state, but also what region of the state has the best 4th grade players.
Below is a tentative list of players who have been invited to participate in the Saturday morning North vs South All-Star games. This list was compiled based on feedback we received from the coaches of the top travel teams in the state and other individuals who are familiar with the top players in this class. Although 39 player names appear on the initial rosters, only the first 30 players to register (10 players per team) will get to participate in the games. Below is a registration link for the event, as well as a link to the event’s Information Page.
For those 4th grade players who did not make our initial list, there is still the opportunity to participate in the elite showcase and play your way to the final all-star games at the end of the event. Also, a Although the spring showcase has primarily been used to highlight the girls slate of Ohio North vs South games, we added 4thgrade boys division this year so that we could get an early look at this class. There will also be North/South games for 6th-8thgrade girls as well, as we will be building rosters over the next several weeks.
This event will not only provide the best players to emerge from the pack and to receive early exposure, it will provide us with the opportunity to see the best players in the class and to begin posting features and tracking their progress. As one final note, if someone from Michigan, Indiana or Kentucky is interested in putting together an all-star team for their respective state, lets us know and we will add it to the slate of 2027 all-star games! Moreover, we would also add a 3rd grade boys game if we can identify and make contact with the coaches parents of the top 3rd graders in the state. So, Coaches/parents, let make it happen!
