Basketball Spotlight Preseason 7th Grade Top 10

The Basketball Spotlight circuit is set to begin once again and we are excited. We would like to start off with our preseason Top 10 for each grade level. We definitely understand that it is still early so some player movement can change things a little. 

Basketball Spotlight Preseason 7th Grade Top 10 

1. Team Nelson: The Grand Finale Champs return looking to win another banner. As usual they will skip the Tip Off Classic but will be ready to rock for the MLK Classic. Right now we have to say it’s their title to lose. 

2. Metro Flyers: MF made a great run at the AAU Nationals finishing #6. They have the team concept together and are one of the best defensively. They are still in search of their first Spotlight banner which could happen at the Tip Off Classic. 

3. Team RIO National: This newly formed squad has 6 players rated in our Top 50 and the roster still isn’t complete. They plan to play a true national schedule and have a good chance of winning the Grand Finale crown. They are loaded with talent. 

4. Team Takeover: TT has brought in ETU Select therefore they should be a force. They also haven’t had a chance to hold a Spotlight banner which should make the Spotlight circuit that more exciting. 

5. CIA Bounce: Bounce will be returning to Spotlight after an impressive showing during last year’s Clash For The Cup. They will have a chance to move up after December. 

6. New Rens: NR returns with one of the best backcourts around. We expect them to be in the heat all season and make a run for the Grand Finale final four. 

7. 6th Man Warriors: They made a name for themselves last year and they won’t be a surprise team this time around. They are geared to appear at the Tip Off Classic. 

8. MJ Mavericks: The Mavs have an Orange Division season under their belts. Now they will be ready to bang out with the big boys again. I will see them December 7th. 

9. RJS: RJS made it to the Grand Finale final four and will be looking for another run. They have an aggressive style and will be looking to run and gun from the outset. 

10. Playaz Basketball Club: The Playaz check in at #10 but I don’t think that will be for long. They have some good pieces and really might have an outside chance of bringing home the banner.
