I am proud to announce that Grassrootsballin will be turning the page to a new chapter in it’s brief history in the near future with the launching of www.premohoopsrecruiting.com.
This has been a long process in getting everything together to be able to launch my new pay-site. The membership cost will be $5.00 per month. The membership will include access to player interviews, scouting videos, event videos, recruiting news, player signings, player evolutions and in-depth event coverage. We are also going to have a 7 day free trail period so people get a chance to see what they will be getting with a membership.

Eric Murphy (St. Mark’s, MA) picks Florida
On Wednesday night Eric Murphy decided where he will continue his basketball career next year. Eric picked the Florida over Duke, Boston College, Uconn, Marquette, Ohio State and Virginia.
Eric is a 6’9 combo forward that has a high basketball I.Q. and has the ability to score from anywhere on the floor. He finishes strong at the basket with an array of post moves. He also has good court vision and is solid on the boards.
This is just the latest commitment from an elite player in the class of 2009. Florida got a really nice pick up here.
