The AAU season is almost upon us and it’s a lot going on in the world of middle school basketball.

As we know in AAU nothing is guaranteed but our information is obtained for very reliable sources.
Word On The Street
They say guards win games and We All Go All Stars took this statement literally as they have put together the top 8th grade backcourt in America. Mainstay Tyger Campbell is back but the Tennessee squad has allegedly added super guards Marquise Walker and Jovan Blackshear. All three guards are rated high nationally on just about every list. Thus Walker’s move from Chicago to Kentucky for this coming school year makes a lot more sense.
Word from California is that 6’6 power forward Walter Talley has reclassified into the Class of 2019 and will hoop with the I 10 Celtics. This move his big for the West Coast squad because it’s gives them a legitimate forward with a wealth of experience. Coach Paul Suber continues to have his pipeline reaching from the Empire State. I can't wait to see them when they hit the Spotlight circuit.
Pierre Joins National Champs!
The word out of North Carolina is that high scoring combo guard Myles Pierre has left the Charlotte Rivals and and has joined CP3 All Stars. The terrific trio of the Langley Twins and Mike Green will also the highest ranked guard in Carolina to help with the scoring power. This move will help CP3 try to be the first team to 3-peat since the Mickey Mitchell led Texas Titans.
DC Premier has loaded up their 2019 group with some talented players. The Mitchell twins are now joined Christian Depollar, and Marvin Price. They definitely have one of the longest frontlines in the country and should be the favorite for the DMV AAU crown.
