The Elite 101 is an exclusive look at the top 101 8th grade basketball players in the nation. This list contains a collection of athletes who are competing for Division I offers, some of whom have already received recognition from top tier high school and college programs around the country. The Elite 101 has been compiled over the past year and athletes have been identified through coverage of camps and tournaments as well as direct contact with coaches, players and program personnel.
After the success of the Elite101 and Freshman450, we are proud to present a brand new set of rankings with our Next Up Watchlist.
The Next Up Watchlist is the first list of it's kind at Youth1. This list identifies the budding young talents from the 7th grade. We know that elite talent can be identified at a young age, and this list will serve as a resource in pinpointing those athletes that we should expect big things from in the near future.
