Prep Hoops began in March of 2012 to fill a gap in the coverage of college-bound prospects.
The top players were being followed and publicized, but there remained a significant number of talented, potentially college-bound prospects that weren’t getting the coverage they deserved. As a result, Northstar Hoops Report was born in Minnesota.
It was an immediate success and led to the subsequent launch of Prep Hoops Iowa in April 2014. Within 18 months, Prep Hoops had expanded into several markets across the country with the ultimate goal of offering comprehensive prospect coverage in every state.
By covering prospective players in all divisions – Division 1, Division 2, Division 3, NAIA D1 and D2, and Junior College – Prep Hoops helps student-athletes fulfill their dreams.
In addition to publishing the most comprehensive grassroots, high school, recruiting coverage and analysis, Prep Hoops runs first-class tournaments and showcases. In 2016, Prep Hoops ran 17 expos in 25 states and hosted thousands of top players in 8 tournaments across the country. Prep Hoops will expand the number of events in 2017, offering more opportunities for top prospects to showcase their talent in front of Prep Hoops staff and college coaches across the country.
The goal of Prep Hoops remains the same as the network expands: to continue to be the most comprehensive resource for high school basketball evaluation and recruitment in each state and, ultimately, the country.
