The dude is only a sophomore in HS. Things are getting out of whack with this basketball phenom thing.

Even worse, ESPN Magazine's latest issue did a report on a 6th grader called J-Mychal Reese and touts him as the best 6th grade basketball player in America. How far down will these phenom rankings go?

I agree it has gotten crazy but as long as there is a demand for these stories they will continue.

My 10 year old brother made 23 consecutive free throws in my driveway, and he probably shoots a consitant 70% from the free throw line. By the time he's 18 he'll probably be the next JJ Reddick, right? Maybe ESPN can come over to my house an write an article on my little brother.:rolleyes:

Well, first time I heard of him was his freshman or sophomore season of HS when he made the cover of Sports Illustrated.

According to ESPN, Ohio State is #1 on his list. They compare him to Chris Webber at this stage in his career.

No, he will be a Junior this upcoming year.

I read that same article, and I went to the website where they got the info from, but they wanyed like $350 for like 1 year. Kiss my *** if you want that much.

agreed. Im not saying the kid wont be good but its not like hes playing against kids who are as good as him so he will dominate at that age level. Wait until college to call him the next phenom when he plays against the good players.

My little brother is 9 years old and he has been named( by coaches and people who have basketball leagues) the best in Northern Virginia and all his coaches are coming to me and my parents and going crazy. I nevery league he has played he has won MVP and Scoring Champ.I think it's really bad for kids this young to get attention. They stop focusing on practicing and improving an they get really cocky( personal experience).

I think it's a bit extreme for kids that young to be getting that kind of attention. Let them live normal lives, and than in their senior year, that's when the talk can begin.

We had a kid in our high school who was a pretty good defensive tackle, and he was being recruited as a sophomore (and these were only D2 schools), and he lost friends because of it. Some kids can't react in a positive way to that kind of exposure.

Pretty prestigious place to go. Souther Cal, what more could you want?

Not a rich basketball tradition persay, but they still attract some fine athletes.

They give kids college offers at 12 years old. They had a special on this on ESPN Outside the Lines. I think it's ridiculous to be honest. I understand trying to find a competitive edge and trying to snatch up talent before anyone else but seriously, 12 years old? I'm sure there are cases were kids are even younger and being scouted. I'm a head coach for a 10-12 team and for me to sit there and even PHANTOM the thought of one of my kids being a college player is absurd. Freshmen in high school is the earliest coaches/programs should be allowed to make offers to. I can't even imagine being 10 years old getting a college offer. I was trying to figure out how to avoid going school sometimes rather then think about college at that age lol.
