PC Recruiting Guide to the Second July Evaluation Period

This will be the second of three live evaluation periods in the month of July where college coaches are allowed to attend and evaluate recruits. These three live periods are so critical as coaches can start to really focus on specific targets and maybe even have a new player catch their eye so they can offer and get involved. I’ll be taking a look at some of the major grassroots events that are in this second live period and giving you a list of PC recruits that will be in attendance at each one. This will be a working document so if/when I see a name that PC is recruiting at one of these events and I don’t have the player listed I will add him. Also, if you want to keep track of where Ed Cooley and the rest of the PC staff is during this live period, click here.

Nike Peach Jam (N. Augusta, SC) 7/16/-7/20

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Peach Jam is the culmination of the Nike EYBL circuit and acts as the playoffs. Only 24 teams qualify and there is a play-in game Wednesday to determine that 24th team. I could write up a big preview of this event but the guys at D1Circuit.com have done an absurdly good job at putting together this preview so I would be doing a disservice to try to write anything further. This is an absolute must read for all recruiting junkies especially because, as you’ll see below, there are a TON of PC recruits at the Peach Jam this year.

UA The Finals (Atlanta, GA) 7/16-7/20

The UA has some good players and will surely get lots of attention from the Providence staff with Donovan Mitchell and The City playing in Atlanta this weekend.

Houston Defenders

NE Playaz

New Heights

SportsU

The City

WE R1

NY2LA Summer Jam (Mequon, WI) 7/16-7/20

This tournament seems to be fairly loaded with talent and has a bunch of the Adidas teams that don’t have an Adidas Uprising event this week. I scoured the interwebs for rosters for all the teams and couldn’t find anything for most of them. Here are the PC recruits that were there based on what I could find:

Atlanta Celtics

Wisconsin United

Hoop Group Summer Classic East (King of Prussia, PA) 7/16-7/17

This is an team event being held Wednesday and Thursday. Expressions Elite has their 15U, 16U and 17U squads in attendance. It’s basically the same teams that will also play in the Jam Fest over the weekend.

DC Warriors

Expressions Elite 17U

Expressions Elite 16U

High Rise Team Up

  • 2015 Steve Enoch will not be playing so he can rest his injured thigh, per Adam Zagoria’s tweet:

Mid-Atlantic Select

NYC Jayhawks

Hoop Group Summer Jam Fest (Manheim, PA) 7/18-7/20

DC Warriors

Expressions Elite 17U

Expressions Elite 16U

High Rise Team Up

Peach State Showcase (Aiken, SC) 7/16-7/20

Potential 2014 guard target Ricky Council will be playing with his Brand X team in this event. Aiken, SC is about an hour drive from N. Augusta where the Peach Jam is being held so if the Providence staff wants to come down and take a look at Council to decide if they want to offer this is as good a chance as any. If the PC staff doesn’t send someone to the PSS it would seem to indicate they are not interested enough to offer a scholarship to Council and they may be content to go into next season with their current roster as is.

Brand X

  • 2014 Ricky Council II

Note: Council went for 28 points in a win over Mass Rivals 7/18 at 6pm.

Maryland 3D

Mass Rivals

Basketbull Hall of Fame Invitational (Springfield, MA) 7/18-7/20
