EYBL LOGO

Coaches will board planes and criss-cross the country this weekend as the first NCAA sanctioned Evaluation Period of the 2017 Summer Circuits gets underway.

The Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL), Adidas Uprising and the Under Armour Association Grassroots Circuit all tip this Friday, April 21st.

The EYBL will once again be loaded with high-level talent, highlighted by the 2018 Top 10 talents of Marvin Bagley III, Cameron Reddish, Simi Shittu and Darius Garland. Led by the dynamic duo of Michael Porter Jr. and Trae Young, Mokan Elite was able to take home the Nike EYBL championship, winning Peach Jam last summer.

Last year the EYBL also saw Collin Sexton break out for the Southern Stampede, as he averaged 31.7 points per game. Sexton’s incredible run was capped off with a 44 point outburst against the Georgia Stars in an 85-83 victory. Sexton is committed to Alabama and participated in both the McDonald’s All-American Game and Jordan Brand Classic.

Adidas will show off the skills of maybe the best highlight reel in high school basketball and top 10 2018 class member Zion Williamson along with Romeo Langford, Jordan Brown and Immanuel Quickley.
