Over the course of the 2023 travel season we had the opportunity to evaluate a number of very talented 2032 players in some very competitive tournaments. At the conclusion of each event, we published tournament recaps which included a list standout performers in the form of all-tournament teams. Below is our list of the top 3rd grade players we saw all season in the form of 10 “All-American Teams.”
In terms of our criteria, we only included 3rd grade players who we personally saw play this season. We also considered the level of competition of the tournaments and how frequently we saw players compete at a “national” level. In addition, we went back and reviewed our prior tournament recaps and “All-Tournament Team” selections.
Let us be clear, our list does not represent “rankings,” as it does not included some of the other top players in the country whom we did not see in tournament play this year.
Moreover, we did not consider players we saw in camp/showcase settings only. Some of the top tournaments we attended this season included: T3TV March Madness, Buckeye Prep Invitational, Dru Joyce Classic, Hell’s Kitchen, Ballin on the Beach and AAU Nationals.
Our list is primarily designed to provide recognition for standout performances in team settings and competitive environments. We also hope the recognition will serve as motivation for players to continue to work hard and to further develop their games. On a final note, we will continue to update our “2032 Watch List” going forward in order to shine the spotlight on the top players in this class. Follow us on IG @robt1
