Louisville, KY (Future150) -- The state of Kentucky usually imports the great basketball talent from around the country.  This year The Bluegrass State is starting a new tradition.  

Exporting.

This week alone Braxton Beverly verbally committed to the Miami (Ohio).  Beverly is ranked #127 amongst Class of 2016

"Miami really wanted him," said AAU Coach Andre Mahorn.  "He has a fellow Traveler over there, Zach McCormick.  He just looks for the best opportunity."

Beverly is an accomplished scorer, capable of dumping in points from either guard spot.

"It feels great to be committed to the Miami RedHawks," said Beverly.  "I love what they stand for on the court, off the court, and in the classroom.  They believe in me and I feel great about the coaching staff and guys in the team. I look forward to helping Miami bring home some MAC titles and making some noise in the NCAA Tourney!"

Beverly will carve out a masterful career in the MAC. 

"Miami really wanted him," said AAU Coach Andre Mahorn.  "He has a fellow Traveler over there, Zach McCormick.  He just looks for the best opportunity."

Beverly is an accomplished scorer, capable of dumping in points from either guard spot.

"Miami built that relationship and signed the young man up," said Coach Mahorn.

An AAU-teammate of Beverly, Matt Wilson also ended his recruitment this week.

Wilson is a workhorse, capable of winning countless rebounding battles.  He picked Army-West Point.  Few cadets will outsize the 6-foot-9 power forward.  

"With Matt Wilson, he had an intriguing year," said AAU Coach Mahorn.  "The kid really worked hard to put himself in a good position.  He grew every game and got better in every game."

Quentin Goodin (#55) hopped across the border to verbally commit to Xavier.

Forward Ben Weyer (Newport) will attend Bellarmine in Louisville.  He selected the nearby D2 school this week.

Younger But Better?

Exports are a new tradition that is only picking up steam.

The Class of 2017 and 2018 are very strong in Kentucky, possibly stronger than any in recent memory.  The depth is especially tantalizing.

"Samford, Vanderbilt, Cincinnati, and Georgia State will be in to see Trey Hill and his teammates next week," said father Willie Hill.

Hill is one of the top players in the 2018 class along with Future150 Alumni, Danny Butt and Steven Fitzgerald. Together they had a fantastic July with the Louisville Magic.  Three Final Four finishes in three tough tournaments. 

The Class of 2017 has Chris Vogt.  Vogt has offers from Western Kentucky, Tulsa, and Middle Tennessee.  Along with Vogt, surefire D1 prosepcts from Kentucky include Jaylen Sebree, De'Von Cooper, Cole VonHandorf, and the list goes on and on.

David "Day Day" Sloan is high major material.  JR Mathis had a breakout July for the Magic.  

Damon Tobler and Caleb Williams have D1 potential on the wing.

Tavin Lovan (Travelers) was evaluated by WKU earlier today.  He is a legacy at that school, as both parents played hoops there.

The entire sophomore class is loaded in Kentucky.  From now on exports are trend worth noticing.
