Basketball Top Prospects springboards off the company's other popular recruiting reports, Elite 101 (Football), and Hockey Top Prospects, which also identify and analyze the strengths and skill sets of the best athletes in the country in their respective sport.  

"Prior to the tip off of basketball season, we are proud of this addition to the suite of premium content reports. It's a response to the hunger for unbiased scouting information on youth athletes, which, as the top provider of online youth sports news, we are uniquely positioned to deliver unlike any other organization directly involved in youth sports," comments Laura Petrillo, Youth1 President.

Basketball Sports Manager, Zachary O'Connor-Robol adds, "After much hard work and deliberation, we're very excited to provide our loyal fans an inside look at the tremendous basketball talent within the Class of 2017.  We've consulted some of the most respected and influential voices in grassroots basketball. As a result, we're able to offer more insight and analysis of these blue chippers before they take the court on national television."

"When I look at the 2017 class, I see a lot of talent in it. It's very guard heavy, there's a plethora of great guards, which shows how the game is transitioning," said Rickey Rivers, President of NYC's Fun Sport Inc.

Youth1 also plans to extend their coverage of top prospects to girl's basketball players as part of their "2013: The Year of the Girl," initiative.  The campaign aims to promote the efforts of the athletes, coaches and organizers of girl's sports.
