As was mentioned in my previous post, on Saturday, I was lucky enough to attend the Under Armour Elite 24 game in Venice Beach. For those of you who don’t know, the Under Armour Elite 24 is now in its seventh year, and brings together the top high school basketball players in the country. Most of the best players in the classes of 2013 and 2014 attended this year’s event, which was played last Saturday (and yes, as a graduate of the class of 2003, attending the event this weekend definitely made me feel old).
Anyway, while the story was on the game itself, I was lucky enough to grab a bunch of the participants and shoot some exclusive video that simply can’t be found anywhere else. Some players discussed what it meant to be at the event, where they were looking at college and a million other things.
Below are the videos, along with the names of the players, their information and also if and where they might be attending college in the fall of 2013. Because I shot quite a few videos, they will be broken down into two separate posts. So if your favorite high school player isn’t in this one, there’s a very good chance they’ll be in the next one.
Enjoy, and if you want to check out all the videos, you can get them on YouTube by clicking here.
