The NY2LA Basketball Association continues to trend in the right direction as the new 15U-17U platform launched by NY2LA Sports earlier this month is already firmly entrenched with quality programs from 10 states. This week two more quality programs came aboard with the additions of ALL IN/Y&R and the R.E.A.C.H. Legends.

We are pleased to welcome Billy Welcome, Justin Brimm, Stanley Boateng, Steve Parham and the Illinois based ALL IN/Y&R program to the fold. Already a strong presence in the Chicagoland area, the ALL IN/Y&R program had 5 alumni make Division 1 commitments in their inaugural year. Jordan Hughes signed with Western Illinois as part of their 2015 class in the spring; Zion Morgan verbally committed to Valparaiso and then subsequently de-committed last night; Brandon Johnson committed to Western Michigan, Spencer Foley committed to Canisius, and KJ Santos committed to Illinois-Chicago. They are another strong addition to the NY2LA Basketball Association both individually and collectively and we are pleased to have them on board.
Also joining the fold earlier this week was Marcus Webster and the R.E.A.C.H. Legends. A strong Michigan based program with heavy Detroit area ties, the R.E.A.C.H. Youth Programs was founded in 1980 and they have been actively involved in helping Detroit and Michigan youth for over 35 years. The program has 21 alumni currently playing at the NCAA Division 1 level right now including, but not limited to, the likes of Mychal Mulder (Kentucky), Raven Lee (Eastern Michigan), Jalen Reynolds (Xavier), Kahlil Felder (Oakland), Mory Diane (Buffalo), Justin Tilman (VCU), Kenny Goins (Michigan State) etc. We are pleased to have Coach Webster and a quality program with a rich history of talent like the R.E.A.C.H. Legends join the NY2LA Basketball Association.
