ANSWER: It has been directly confirmed that Ben Todd has made a verbal commitment to Coach Carlos of WACG for the upcoming 2014/2015 season.  There may be some challenges as it relates to fulfilling this commitment that have nothing to do with basketball – but time will tell and dictate the situation.  Coach Carlos also made the statement that Todd is the next Marvin Bagley; whereas the excitement is appreciated on the coach’s behalf Todd remains far from a finished product.  The jury remains out on what is being called a wing player as it relates to the ability to play said position at the elite level.  Better than Bagley?  He may not even be the best Todd in the class frankly!  If WACG falls through look for WCAS and the Soldiers to be major players – as long as the rampant rumors of Jason Harris to WACG are false WACG pairing these two could create a twin tower situation that would be formidable. 

Who will Zion Harmon (DMV) #1 2021 Play for in 2015?

ANSWER: After averaging 40ppg in the NYBL playoffs against the rising and current 7th grade class Harmon went searching for new challenges.  His destination?  Slam City Elite 2019 starting PG.  The 6th grader is looking to expand his game vs. the best competition available.  While still moonlighting at the 6th grade level in specific events which currently includes another run at a national title under a “new” sponsorship umbrella Unlimited Glory; potentially being powered also by Slam City Elite.  Finally having Harmon in the Slam City Elite stable may pay huge dividends over the course of the year; the nation’s top 2020 team the “Terror Squad” are rumored to be preparing Harmon for cameo’s and including him on their title run – another situation of the rich getting richer.

ANSWER: One of the major moves taking place this past summer was the reclassification of Trey Patterson.  This move placed Patterson as a top 3 player in the country on multiple boards with some considering him the top prospect in the group.  With that type of status, talent, and skill set Patterson is naturally a hot commodity – our investigation has revealed that Patterson’s 2014/2015 home will be with another of the nation’s best players forming what may be the best 1-2 punch in the country at Team Glory Elite with Zion Harmon playing UNDER SPONSORSHIP!  Need confirmation? Check out the roster of the 6th grade championship photo from Hoop Groups Fall Jam Fest from the past weekend.

 

True of False - #7 Jeremiah Francis 2019 will play for All Ohio Red in 2015?

True
 81.54%
False
 18.46%


ANSWER: Rob Taylor and Buckeye Prep recently broke this major story that has been rumored now for several months relating to the Midwest Super Group which would be made up of top G3 players and All Ohio Red players.  Whereas the roster itself poses unique challenges internally as well as to national competitors; the primary question becomes who, what, where, and when?  Our sources speaking on the condition of anonymity have stated with respect to Jeremiah Francis only; read between the lines for the rest – that he (Francis) will be suiting up for All Ohio Red who will be operating from (how should we say) a very comfortable position. 

  

Who will Jordan Mitchell (OH) #27 6'6 WF play for in 2015?

Percentages
Ohio Basketball Club
1.59%
All Ohio Red
42.86%  
King James All Stars
52.38%
George Hill All Stars
3.17%





ANSWER:  Dru Joyce of the King James All Stars is either hanging with King James, is playing his cards close to the vest, or doesn’t appreciate youth basketball.  His claims to be unaware of his clubs newest toy and asset Jordan Mitchell is nothing more than an amusing ploy – but the word is out and it has been confirmed.  Mitchell will be leaving one of the nation’s best teams now for several years (All Ohio Red) to develop and expand the aspects of his game.  Having shown phenomenal wing skill and potential last year, Jordan is looking to make another huge transition by moving to the PG position.  We believe Mitchell best and future destination will be at the wing but we will be watching closely in 2015 to see Mitchells progress.

#11 Player in the Class of 2019 6'6 Marvin Price will Play for who in 2015?

Answer Choices
Percentages
Team Melo
21.54%
DC Premier
66.15%
Baltimore Elite
9.23%  
Boo Williams
3.08%

ANSWER: A few short years ago this wouldn’t have even been a question; top players in Baltimore stayed in Baltimore.  There has been a recent tread of top players leaving the area to maximize their opportunities that are being watered down by too many teams and egos within the city of Baltimore.  Without question together they have some of the country’s top talent this includes Marvin Price; looking to expand his opportunities and national visibility Price will run with DC Premier.  Team Melo almost knocked off the 2018 WACG team at nationals so that group is strong and special – but with Price DC Premier is a favorite to claim the 2019 national championship and any other event they enter for that matter.

 

True or False: #6 2019 6'7 WF Chandler Lawson will play for NIKE Team Florida in 2015?

Answer Choices
 Percentages
True
 35.38%
False
 64.62%


ANSWER:  Potentially the top prospect in the class when it’s all said and done; the prospect of teaming Lawson with 6’10 Balsa Koprivica on team Florida was a scary proposition for the country.  Lucky for them this will not be happening as Lawson will remain in his home state and from our understanding continue to compete with the Wildcats and moonlighting at time with teams such as the War Eagles.

Team Felton
1.56%
Atlanta Celtics

ANSWER:  In what clearly is the worst kept secret of the year; Myles Pierre will in fact be suiting up for the National Champion CP3 All Stars.  The only question that remains is how the top SG in country comes off the bench and how long does that last.  In what has been an absolutely amazing job over several years of ego and personnel management if any team can do it; it Langley and his CP3 crew.

True or False: There is a New Prep School in the DMV where the Nation’s Top MS Players are applying to?
Answer Choices  
Percentages
True
 66.67%
False
 33.33%


ANSWER: For the youth basketball world evaluating their High School options, there is another bigtime option on the table beginning in 2016.  Define bigtime you ask?  Try Findley Prep, Oak Hill Academy, Huntington Prep, and Prime Prep – and of course those that know are taking early advantage looking to secure roster spots now – this includes top International players who are entering the 9th grade.  With what many considered to be the top basketball producing market and without question the region with the top national prep school competition in the heart of ACC & SEC country the institution is looking to immediately become a national championship contender.  Certainly just as with the other schools mentioned, the roster will be made up of the most elite players in the country which is creating a level of excitement like no other on the east coast and across the country.
