    Yes prospects from overseas are definitely recruited.

    Locally...
    University of Winnipeg(roster not finalized) has a player from Bulgaria: http://www.wesmen.ca/sports/mbkb/2019-20/roster
    Univeristy of Manitoba has a player from Senegal and... New Zealand: https://gobisons.ca/roster.aspx?path=mbball

    For adult participation it's golf.

    Popularity-wise nationwide it's definitely ice hockey.

    My general observation is that basketball & soccer are definitely the top 2 sports for minorities & immigrants in terms of participation & popularity.

    Ryerson also has a 7’2 kid from Senegal who has a lot of potential (to add to that list). On a side note, I’m definitely in favour of the recruitment of international players as long as they increase the level of competition.

    I also hope that more kids stay and play for local Canadian schools, but the US is just too close to pass up. However, it’s still nice to know that many of the players in the current Canadian Senior team are products of U Sports programs, and now play in pro leagues across Europe.

    if you guys follow JBA's (Japan's hoop fed) social media accounts, you can see that every December, they have this Basketball Winter Cup, where the top high school teams from all over Japan compete in a tournament style , knock out format . And almost all the top teams in both Boys and Girls divisions have African players.

    I mean, its almost like the college scene here right, (at least the non-NCAA teams)...but there in Japan, they have African prospects as early as high-school age, thereby increasing their chances to discover real gems in an early age and making them local players, and not naturalized players. This is aside from the benefit of increasing quality of competition.

    Kaine Roberts. 6'2 Guard, Japan



    Promising prospect Roberts, a 188-cm (6'2) playmaker born to an American father and Japanese mother, displayed flashy dribbling skills and agility throughout the final day’s activities, driving baseline at one point and rifling a kick-out pass back to the top of the perimeter to a teammate during the All-Star contest. Roberts is transferring to Santa Margarita Catholic High School in Rancho Santa Margarita, California, for his senior year. He previously attended Kinnick High School in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture.

    He a named Grit Awardee (Best Prospect) in the recently concluded Basketball Without Borders Asia Camp

    To put things in perspective, Forthsky Padrigao was the NBA BWB Asia All Star game MVP last year. That edition included Kody Stattmann who played his freshman year in Virginia. I'm not so sure if we can say that Padrigao is better than Stattmann.

    In the same article it mentions he already has 2 offers from mid major programs, Northern Arizona and Bucknell.

    Quite small though as SG, hope he will have another growth spurt to make him a viable SG prospect internationally

    All Star Game MVP doesn't have the same weight as Best Camper.
