2017 Nike EYBL Schedule and Teams

Nike EYBL releases 2017 grassroots schedule

The Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) is arguably the best grassroots circuit on the planet. 100 players that played on the EYBL circuit were chosen as McDonald’s All-American nominees in 2016. Twenty of the twenty-five selected to play in the prestigious McDonald’s All-American game were alumni of the EYBL.

The NBA is where prospects on the Nike EYBL have a good shot of landing. In the 2014 NBA Draft, 3 of the top 4 picks were former EYBL hoopers. In the 2015 NBA Draft, #2 and #3 overall were EYBL alum, and 18 of the 30 first round picks played on the EYBL. In the 2016 NBA Draft, the #1 overall (Ben Simmons) played on the EYBL, and 10 of the 30 first round picks were Nike EYBL alum.

The Nike circuit is rich with talent, and the 2017 live periods can’t come fast enough.
