LSU five-star signee Ben Simmons was named the 2014-15 Grassroots Hoops Mr. Basketball USA on Wednesday.

Simmons’ talent level, and the production that led to his team’s dominance among the nation’s top teams, today earns him the 2014-15 Grassroots Hoops Mr. Basketball USA title.

Simmons, a native of Australia and LSU recruit, is the first ever Mr. Basketball USA honoree from a Florida program. The landscape of high school basketball is rapidly changing. Many of the nation’s top players don’t attend traditional high schools anymore and there is more foreign-born talent in America’s high school ranks than ever before. Simmons’ honor reflects that change.
Simmons is the first consensus national player of the year since NBA superstar LeBron James in 2003.
