Accidently pressed enter, about to post the full post.
Washington, Illinios, DC area have all produce a lot of talent, but right now the place to recruit is Texas. Texas has top flight talent entering college and is deep in talent in high school right now. To name a few off the top of my head: Harrison Twins, Winslow, Randle, Suliamon, Jones, and a bunch of Big men.
Im dissappointed of the small amount of basketball talent out of the Bay Area. Top blue chip talent is rare, a few solid players every year but not the depth of players.
All those.guy are from Washington the state not the DC area in Maryland
I accidently pressed enter before I typed The D.C area players, and I did a 2nd post with the full list but it seems as if NBAdraft.net took it down, I have no idea why, The list is based off of where the players were born and players who are in the NBA today.
But for the DMV/DC Area- the list is- Deron Williams, OJ Mayo, Bill Walker, Keith Bogans, Justin Harper, Vernon Macklin, Julyan Stone, Reggie Williams, Ed Davis, James White, Kevin Durant, Chris Johnson, John Lucas, Sam Young, Roger Mason, Patrick Patterson, Delonte West, Jeff Green, Dajuan Summers, Josh Selby, Gary Neal, Ty Lawson, Jarrett Jack, Rudy Gay, Jerome Dyson, Dante Cunningham, Michael Beasley

West Virginia and Virgina were originally one, that's the reason I did that.
