The Top Rank National Showcase in Des Moines, IA on 9/2/17 will feature some of the most talented high school basketball prospects across the midwest and country. In conjunction with Under Armour, this event will feature 125 nationally recognized prospects competing for exposure, all-star status, and bragging rights. Each player will be featured in 3 games throughout the day, as well as an intense workout at the beginning of the morning session. Top performers will then be selected to participate in the Top 30 "Best of the Best" game.
Tyreke Locure of Nike MoKan Elite will be in attendance he tells us this weekend as we caught up with him at #TheWarmUp in Bentonville, Arkansas. Tyreke is currently ranked as the #2 overall player in Iowa behind University of Iowa commit, Patrick McCaffrey. Tyreke has a lightning quick first step and is virtually unguardable when he decides to attack. He is also a very good shooter. He has the ability to step out a few feet behind the 3-point line and make shots consistently. One of the better guards in the midwest, he is sure to shine at the Top Rank Showcase.
