Testimonials

“Prep Hoops Freshman showcase was a game-changer for me. It was great exposure and the feedback from Prep Hoops scouts has helped me focus on what I need to work on to be the best at my role and improve my chances of being a college basketball player. The coaches, refs, and scouts did a great job providing us with instruction, exposure and feedback.”

“My son raves about anything Prep Hoops is involved in, and the Top 250 Expo was no different. It was very well organized, and very well run, and the coaches were all high-level. We sign up for anything and everything that Prep Hoops is involved in locally - you all just know how to do it right. My son attended another local showcase two weeks ago and it wasn't even close to being on the same level as yours; in fact, it was a total waste of money. Please keep doing what you are doing for all of these kids. Appreciate all you do!”

“We are not usually fans of camps because it brings out ball hogs and bad basketball with selfish players not playing the game the right way. This camp was different though... It was very refreshing because more times than not these types of camps seem more like money grabs rather than an actual benefit to the real talent attending them. PH made sure to put on a real showcase where top talent could be evaluated the right way.”

“Attending the Prep Hoops showcase was an exhilarating and unforgettable experience. As soon as I stepped into the gym, the buzzing energy of the event was palpable. I was immediately immersed in a world of sheer athleticism and talent, surrounded by passionate players and die-hard basketball enthusiasts alike. The atmosphere was electric as every participant showcased their skills, leaving the audience in awe with their breathtaking dunks, precise ball handling, and lightning-fast footwork. The level of competition was intense, pushing me to raise my own game. Throughout the showcase, I had the opportunity to connect with other players and coaches, exchanging tips and tricks to improve my technique. The event not only fostered my love for the game but also, inspired me to continue honing my skills and pursue my basketball dreams.I want to attend more showcases as I move forward in my basketball journey.”

“The Prep Hoops Freshman Showcase experience was first class and well organized. The participants were given a fair and equal opportunity to showcase their skills against the other top 9th graders in the state, and if they made their mark on the court, the coverage was there to catch it all. The knowledgeable coaches kept the energy high on the court, and the basketball was fun to watch for everyone there.”

“I had a great time at the showcase. It was fun playing with different teammates than I usually play with. It was also fun playing against new competition and playing so many games in 1 day. That was my second time going to this showcase and it was even better than last years.”

Jackson Green
Player

“Prior to this year, he had flown under the radar even though he was an outstanding player. [Scout Jon] Gilbert recognized this talent last summer at player camps and ran some very nice pieces about Andy. That recognition served as the final piece in helping Andy receive an athletic scholarship to play Div. II Basketball at Lake Superior State University. Mr. Gilbert's recognition of Andy was vitally important given that recruiting is restricted currently and coaches have to take a little bit of a chance in extending offers.”

“Thank you for having a platform to promote and highlight high school basketball players who are performing at a very high level and giving them exposure to help them be discovered and achieve their goals of playing at the next level. This platform is especially helpful for kids whose school program may not promote their top players or report stats to news media outlets.”

Christopher Black
Parent of Mason Black

“We think our son works pretty hard, but it is always nice when others notice. He currently has an offer from Mercyhurst and there are others that have been contacting him on a regular basis. I believe that your articles have helped that process.”

Parent of Aidan Reichert
Parent

“I have been very impressed with Prep Hoops. They have stood out as the leading media outlet for high school basketball in our state. Our son played on one of the top-ranked teams in Colorado and Prep Hoops went above and beyond to recognize players when local media coverage was few and far between. Thank you all for the non-stop coverage. Prep Hoops is definitely worth the subscription! We also appreciated the camp that provided an opportunity to compete against other players.”
