98 NIKE EYBL alumni currently rostered in NBA

By D1 Circuit Staff, 01/19/18, 6:45PM EST


As the ninth season of the EYBL circuit sets to tip off in April, we wanted to provide an update of alumni in the league.

As of January 18th, there are 97 NIKE EYBL alumni on NBA rosters. Each 1 Teach 1 (FL) leads the way with six, followed by Houston Hoops (TX) with five.

34 different programs have an alumni in the NBA.

When factoring out 67 foreign players who did not play grassroots, EYBL alumni account for 23% of the American born NBA.

All current alumni of the NIKE EYBL are 26 or younger. If you factor out the 197 players in the NBA are older than 26, and the 37 foreign players under the age of 26, that gives you 263 American-born players - making the EYBL grassroots path for roughly 36% of the American-born NBA since it's inception. 

That number should continue to grow as the league gets younger and the veterans start to be replaced with rookies. The last three NBA drafts have been EYBL heavy, as the basketball world saw 43 alumni get drafted - highlighted by 18 in 2015.

There are currently 51 alumni of NIKE programs that played before the inception of the present-day EYBL.
