HoopStars Tracker: New Canadians in US Colleges/Universities

Much has been said about the Canadian explosion of young talent these past few years. Our National Teams’ recent performances over the summer (i.e. Bronze in U17 Worlds & Bronze in U18 Americas) testify to that. More and more are leaving Canadian high schools early to experience the U.S. prep school experience as a launching pad to future success. With supporters and naysayers from coast-to-coast continually battling over what they feel are best for homegrown talent, the prep school exodus really began its impact in large numbers with the High School Class of 2010. With a new record of over 40 Canadians heading to Division 1 for the first time this fall, there is arguably more hype than ever before. HoopStars Canada gives you a chance to monitor all our post-secondary student-athletes down south with this “Canadian Tracker”.

*This list will continue to update as more Canadian recruits are confirmed for this season. If you know of any corrections or ones that are missing, please e-mail Barry Hayes.
