Dear college coaches, I'm here to help you with your travel. 

Ever wonder which states produce the best college basketball players? Some are obvious. The largest states (Texas, California and Florida) are bound to be on the list, but where else?

Honorable mention: Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, Michigan, Virginia and Missouri.
