    Nextup does have camps like many of the others, but no question their staff hits gyms during the HS season and Spring/Summer all the time. I have seen them as far away as Dallas this Spring, so they put the work in to evaluate.

    It isn't that I am right, because I could just as easily be wrong. It is just not as simple as a team being really good and having a really good player like Allen. There is more of a chance to get a Friend of Nike 15U or 16U spot and play in the EYBL in those age divisions. for 17U EYBL, those EYBL spots drop to 40 and there are more than 40 long time established NIKE programs with history of having really good teams with D1 players year...

    Not trying to send shade on the team getting a shoe company contract, but it just does not work that way. A single team rarely gets into the EYBL unless you have a Top 10 prospect like Marvin Bagley in 2018 whose father was given a spot before his junior HS season. NIKE is not looking for good teams, they are looking for the next LeBron. Romeo got his own Adidas team for his final year in Adidas, but he was the #3 player in National Rankings....

    Greater Cincy is like the odd man out when it comes to having a shoe sponsored team, but it is more due to the shoe companies like to avoid change when they find success with programs. NIKE has had All OH Red and King James for the longest in OH. King James has had some turmoil this past year, but as long as they survive there is not going to be a 3rd program in OH. Adidas has OBC that is a long standing OH program and then Indiana Elite not...

    I think you could argue that a prep school moving in could be a good thing for plans that had been in the works. That was an existing prep school so it did not take any of the funding or people who were kicking about a new prep school idea. Having one in town actually helps because now you have two for the price of one when other prep schools travel to town. Most areas in the country that have a strong prep presence benefit from having...

    One lesson is that the more schools you go to in high school, the harder it is to get NCAA certified. David was at one school for 2.5 years and then touched 3 different schools in 1.5 years. The more schools, the more difficult it gets with getting through the Clearinghouse and then JUCO becomes the only option left. He will be playing D1 ball when he finishes up there. Also choose your prep schools carefully if you go that route, find one...

    Told tonight the former HC is taking the AD position at the West End Boys School in Louisville which is a private boarding school for kids up to the 8th grade. Not sure if they plan to expand or not, but that is the reason he left Seneca is what I was told.

    I agree he is a wing, but from what I saw of several games the team played a point and a center with 3 wings. It is true Romeo is a dominant wing player who has earned his stripes so to speak. The rest of the team has some good players that need to earn their playing time with their production and ability to make others better. I don't feel he should take a backseat to anyone, but guys like Faulkner and Kunkel would not be taking backseats to...

    I am going to suggest that many kids who have: A) played on their HS team or even been on an AAU team where they are no question "The Man" status and... B) where they are rarely taken out of a game they sometimes have a difficult transition to being on a team with several if not the entire team of players who equally are as talented or perhaps even better. That is just not Allen, but many kids. It is a situation that I believe is more...

    CJ is a sharpshooter from 3 point land. To hit over 50% of your three point shots after the first two weekends in the Adidas Gold division in front of college coaches will serve him well. Despite Indy Elite only winning one game in each session, CJ will be just fine hitting 3's at a clip like that. I feel he projects as a really good shooting guard at the next level and it will be interesting to see where he chooses to further his career. ...

    I think he is a great fit, he could slide right in and replace Lavone Holland delivering a very similar value. I am just a big Trevon fan and it would not surprise me if he gets some Power 5 conference offers.

    NKU loves him, not sure if that is the best fit for him but they sure are high on him.

    What all of those programs have is strong funding as well. Trust me....the amount of expenses a family pays for their son to play all over the country and in many cases attend with him is significant. Many well funded programs cover every dollar a player incurs and often helps the parents out as well. That is a big reason in addition to the other things you mention, but don't kid yourself that $$$ come into play as it relates to covering...

    KY All Star staff needs to go back to selecting the team and not having a tryout. The tryout this year was essentially for show. Having kids who did not attend the tryout make the team doesn't make sense. Either go with a draft or go with a true tryout. There were some selections that are questionable given some of the players that were not selected. This event is not about putting the best players on the floor to get a chance to win, but I...
