As I put in the Buffen thread......
These could be some of the players the staff watched this past week, among many others. This is the Evaluation Period for Coaches and Players. Their Main Targets may very well change over the course of the Evaluation Period. Some players did not perform up to expectations this past week, while other players exceeded expectations and raised their stock significantly, while others were about as expected.
Always interesting when the top talent in the AAU goes up against one another - tends to provide a separation from among the talent
Las Vegas is coming up which is a big Tournament. July is a great month.
On Campus Visits increase once School Starts. Coaches want to showcase their campus. Football Games take place and Basketball Players will sometimes attend the pregame tailgating, game itself and postgame activities.
I'd guess 2 to 3 of our 5 openings commit by the November Signing Day. After the July Evaluation period Coaches narrow down their lists
Our Coaching staff keeps things pretty quiet. Could very well be that some of the 5 openings are filled by players not publicized much. Coaches are also watching the 16U and even 15U players at these AAU Events, not just the 17U.Nike EYBL Peach Jam – North Augusta, South Carolina
