Providence Recruiting Guide to the 1st April 2015 Live Evaluation Period

This will be the first of two live evaluation periods in the month of April. A live evaluation period means college coaches are allowed to attend and evaluate recruits. This will be the first time coaches can see players in their grassroots setting since July 2014. As I did last spring and summer I’ll be providing a guide for fans to follow along and see where Providence’s targets are playing during a given live evaluation period. I’ll also be doing my best to keep up with the map that tracks where Ed Cooley and his staff are during each live period and any recruiting period in between. This post will be updated as the weekend goes on and more information is known. Note: All teams are 17U unless otherwise noted.

EYBL Hampton, VA Session 1 4/10-4/12

The Nike EYBL circuit is widely considered to be the best run grassroots league with the most talent. While the other shoe company-run leagues by Adidas and Under Armour are getting better, EYBL is still the gold standard. There are a lot of Providence targets playing on the EYBL circuit this season so I wouldn’t be surprised to see more than 1 coach in Hampton, VA this weekend. Game times are local to Virginia (EDT).
