CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Junior International World Championship is a prestigious tournament for young basketball players.

Guys like LeBron and Jared Sullinger are playing in it. And now, so is a young man named Seth Wilson of Westlake.

He is one of three kids from Ohio on the team, the rest are from other parts of the country. They are in Italy playing in front of crowds of thousands and the competition there is so good, they say 2-3 kids from each team could make the NBA.

Wilson is the top ranked eighth grader in Ohio and is already getting national attention.
