We may be in the middle of high school basketball season but it’s not too early to look ahead to what’s coming up on the AAU circuit. Over the next few months we will be taking a look at the teams that will be participating in the PrepHoops Circuit Grind Region and here’s a look at Kansas Primetime Ballerz.

Kansas Primetime Ballerz will a teams in the 17U division of the Grind Region and will be at the Midwest Grind Session, Show Me Showdown, and Grind Region Finals.

Here’s a transcript of a conversation we had with coach Willie Dotson III.

Why did you start your program? How long have you been around?

I started Primetime Ballerz because I had some kids that wanted to play competitive basketball in hopes of going to college to play basketball! We started Primetime Ballerz in the summer of 2013.

What is the goal of your program for 2019?

The goal of our program is for all 8 of my young men to earn a scholarship to play basketball on the next level and if we win a tournament championship or 2 along the way this spring/summer then that would just be icing on the cake!

What is your program’s mission each year?

Every day, every practice, every game, every year our mission is to get better in life on and off the court! I encourage my players to do something everyday to better their situation!

Do you know of any players that will be back in your program this year? Who should we have our eye on?

Yes, my roster is loaded with 8 talented players who I believe you should keep your eye on!

Willie Dotson IV Lawrence High
Bryce Johnson Jr. Lawrence High
Max Adams Lawrence High
Dakari Middleton Freestate High
Alyus Wisdom Freestate High
Alton Easley Washington High

Noah Cubit Liberty High(MO)

Why did you choose the Prep Hoops Circuit?

We chose Prep Hoops Circuit because they have proven to us that they care about getting the kids exposure and they run some of the best tournaments around!
