Atlanta Xpress 2024 Is Now ENG United

We are proud to announce that we will no longer be known as Atlanta Xpress 2024, and instead will compete as ENG United Basketball Club in the Prep Hoops circuit for the 2021 NCAA Live Recruitment periods.

After three successful seasons with Atlanta Xpress on the Under Armour Future circuit, the move to launch ENG United for the high school journey was not an easy one.

"While we appreciate the amazing opportunity given us by AX, we felt it would be in the best interests of our players and staff to continue our a grassroots basketball journey independently," says ENG United's Founder & Head Coach - Shaine Freeman.

Coach Shaine states, "When the 2020 coronavirus pandemic forced us to sit out the eighth-grade travel season, we used that downtime to evaluate our team's vision for the 15U-17U high school years. We quickly realized that we needed to pursue a more suitable option for our team, and felt that launching ENG United was the right move.  We are excited to continue our journey as one of Georgia's top grassroots basketball teams, with the same goal of helping our talented and high-academic student-athletes secure college scholarships."

ABOUT PREP HOOPS CIRCUIT:   Prep Hoops Circuit is the largest independent league in American grassroots basketball. Prep Hoops provides independent programs an opportunity to compete against the best teams in the country, while gaining exposure to college coaches at the NCAA, NAIA, and NJCAA levels.

Edwards came to Georgia as a five-star out of Atlanta with the highest expectations since Dominique Wilkins. And though the team may have had a disappointing season, going 15-16, Edwards put on a show all season.

Atlanta Xpress 2024 would like to acknowledge and offer our prayers and condolences to the family of a basketball icon/legend, Mr. Kobe "Mamba" Bryant, and his lovely daughter and fellow 2024 classmate/rising hoops star - Gianna Bryant.

January 26, 2020 is a day that will live on in our hearts and minds as the day the game of basketball and those of us who love, play, coach, and work so hard to master it -- lost two of our most beloved comrades.  So, this year, Atlanta Xpress 2024 will play with the Bryant family in our hearts and minds; as a reminder for us to never take for granted the time and talent we have been given in & through the game of basketball.
