: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Who were the best Frosh, Soph, Jr, and Senior in Socal regardless of Division?

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : You first Dad, sounds like your daughter plays below D1, lol

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : So how does a player below D1 getting recognition impact your daughter? There are a plethora of players that decided go to schools that are D2 or lower that are great players and play on excellent club teams. If your daughter is that good you wouldn't feel the need to belittle other players because they don't play on those stacked recruited teams.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : They are recruited because they are the best.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Wow I didn't know that. Only the best are recruited. Guess I need to have my daughter change schools now because those letters from those D1 and D2 schools accidently went to her when they should have gone to your daughter at that D1 private school. Damn it I knew my daughter wasn't good!

: : : : : : : : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Level of competition at Open and Div 1 isn't the same as lower divisions. Otherwise there will be just one division (-:

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : Just like games over the weekend where Open and Division 1 played at The Pyramid while the lower divisions played at home school sites. Why do you think that is?

: : : : : : : : : : : : : :: It's hard for parents whose daughter shine at Park N Rec league level competitions that it's not Open or D1 level competitions. They somehow convinced themselves that their daughter is at the same level as Osborne, lol

: : : : : : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : : : : : How does every thread on this board just turn into hate?

: : : : : : : : : : : : All the OP asked was who people thought were the top players in each division. Whatever his/her motivation, it is a simple question.

: : : : : : : : : : : : Many people know the top players in Open/D1, but beyond that, the names might not be familiar.

: : : : : : : : : : : : Seems like it was all about celebrating some good performances.

: : : : : : : : : : : I can tell you from experience that I think it is better to be a superstar in D2 or D3 than the 4th option on an open division team. After all, if you are good enough, you will play on a good club team and get amazing competition over the summer. My daughter was a star in a lower division, which got her noticed and on a top club team, which netted her multiple offers. If she would have gone to an open school, she likely would have been the 4th or 5th option (or worse) and not had a chance to prove herself. Every kid has their own path and there are no "right" ones. Work hard, be coachable, and hope for a chance to showcase yourself and maybe even a little luck.

: : : : : : : : : : Glad it worked out for you and your daughter playing at low level. But the fact remains, lower level means lower competition. Coaches and scouts know this. You are basically training and competing against lower level players, not the ones everyone wants to recruit who are playing at D1 and Open.
: : : : : : : : : : Think about your growth potential if you are training and competing against the best out there. You play at low level then you will get noticed, if you are fortunate, that you are shining against lower tier competition. If you are cool with that then more power to you.

: : : : : : : : : The above poster has the right formula for getting noticed, player health and longevity and an overall enjoyable basketball experience.

: : : : : : : : : 1) Play at a HS where you will be the #1 or #2 option regardless of Division. Be a 4 YEAR Varsity starter. Put up good #'s / create a stat resume and have a fun.

: : : : : : : : : 2) Play for a CLUB that does exposure tournaments and teaches you the GAME!!!!! (not the traditional chuck 3's / play hand check bump man to man full court / and just lower your head and drive to the basket out of control basketball).
: : : : : : : : : A good CLUB team that is reasonable and faces good competition at exposure tournaments is key. Don't get suckered into PAYING for the other players as they get the TIME and the free ride.

: : : : : : : : : Grinding it out in the OPEN and then turning around 1-2 months later and grinding it out in the club circuit isn't helping your body. Most likely ACL injury and burnout.

: : : : : : : : : Like the man said - many paths to the ultimate goal. Get off your HIGH HORSE in regards to OPEN / DIV 1 is the only thing that matters.

: : : : : : : : : FORMULA -
: : : : : : : : : HS #1/#2 option - 4 year starter
: : : : : : : : : Solid Club - Exposure Tourneys
: : : : : : : : : 3.5-4.0 in classroom

: : : : : : : : : The world is your oyster! Feast!

: : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : : Sounds like a Coach from lower level division, lol. Trying to preach that a low level competitions is the way to go, bwahahahaha. Sorry, you are not fooling anyone (-:

: : : : : : : Go look at the rosters for the top EYBL teams. Each is about equally split between D1/open plywrs and the lower divisions. Having great numbers in D2 or D3 and occasionally D4 is a great way to get onto a top club team and hence have maximum exposure. Colleges scout clubs way more than they scout high schools, thatís a fact. I totally agree with the past poster. Go where you can be a top two option. And get good grades.

: : : : : : I've never heard a college coach say they wouldn't recruit a kid because they played for a school that was lower than D1. Most college coaches watch kids play with their club team and they only check out stats from the high school team. Typical high school playoff games, even Open/D1 games, attract more JuCo coaches than D1 coaches. Every year there are more Open/D1 players who don't get a scholarship than Open/D1 players who do. If you're putting all your scholarship hopes on playing for an Open/D1 school you will be disappointed.

: : : : : : It's OK to argue that the best high school teams play Open/D1. But to say that the best players all play Open/D1 is ignorant. Kids and parents pick schools for a lot of reasons.

: : : : : Absolutely correct. Where you play high school ball barely matters. Where you play club ball is most important. That being said, of course open and D1 have better competition, though Redondo Union night our up an argument. Likely they would have won D1 CIF too.

: : : : :Name former D2 or D3 players that are playing in top major D1 colleges.

: : : : That's a tough one huh?!? What about former D2 or D3 players that are playing in MID major D1 colleges.

: : I will name you 10-15 players in the last 3 years who played d1 College ball that played in non D1 HS teams. Is that what you are asking. I hope your kidding right now. Once I name the list will you get on here and eat your words. Just let mw know before I do it. Or will you then change your words and say the majority. Just let me know.

:
: :Just 1 and all the way back in 2012 that made it to a D1 Mid major college??? (-;

: Let's make this clear for the ones that are kinda slow.

Name a player more recent graduate like in the past 3 years that played HS ball below D1/Open that is currently playing in Top or Mid Major D1 college.
