Rise Above Basketball has been one of the fastest growing programs in New England in recent years.  Started in 2012 as a youth program, RAB didn’t have their first high school program until five years later with their first graduating class finishing up in 2019.  In the two years since, they’ve sent over 25 players on to play at the college level with potentially as many as 25 more on the way as part of the class of 2021.  Last… READ MORE >

Posted Monday, August 3rd, 2020

The Be Seen Tour brought us back to the state of Rhode Island last week to check out BCRI, an emerging program in the state whose u17 team features prospects for D1, D2, and D3 college coaches this year.  Collectively, the group is exactly what we had in mind when we designed the tour.  While everyone is lacking normal exposure opportunities this year, college coaches are understandably focused on the programs and prospects they already know. Meaning, while it’s hard… READ MORE >

Posted Sunday, August 2nd, 2020

This was going to be a big year for Anthony Clayton as he was going to have the opportunity to play, and prove himself, against the best competition possible, both in the prep and grassroots ranks.  It began in the NEPSAC, where he transferred into Avon Old Farms to run Matt Mihalich's team.  This spring and summer, Clayton's long tenure with the City Rocks program was going to culminate with a spot on the roster of their EYBL team.

Posted Friday, July 31st, 2020

Yesterday, we profiled the players in the New York Lightning Select’s 2021 class. The roster features a pair of prospects in the class of 2022 as well though in Peter Carey and Tommy Mooney.  As we said yesterday, Carey just might be the biggest sleeper in all of New England, but that certainly won’t last. It takes about two minutes to see the size, fluidity, and athleticism that make him a very rare long-term prospect. The comparisons to a young… READ MORE >

Be Seen - NY Lightning Select

Posted Thursday, July 30th, 2020

There are lots of sneaker sponsored grassroots programs that have multiple teams, but let’s be clear about something, the New York Lightning Select program is no one’s “B team.” In fact, when we watched them workout last week, we found ourselves asking the same question repeatedly, “isn’t that guy good enough to play for the EYBL team?” The first and most obvious example was Peter Carey, who might just be the best kept secret in New England. It won’t stay… READ MORE >
