Providence Recruits Attending the 2017 NBPA Top 100 Camp

Providence has several recruits among the 108 players attending the 2017 NBPA Top 100 camp being held June 13th through 18th at the University of Virginia. This event is typically chock full of talented players in the rising senior and junior classes and it’s no different in 2017. Providence incoming freshman Makai Ashton-Langford attended this camp last year. One other interesting thing to note that usually happens at this event is the June 15th date for coaches to begin to have direct and unlimited contact with rising juniors. That begins at midnight on Thursday. The camp begins today and runs through Sunday.

Here is a list of Providence recruits attending the 2017 NBPA Top 100 Camp:

Recruiting News: Rivals Class Of 2016 Top 150 Updated

With the first live period beginning on Friday it makes sense that Rivals would want to update their rankings for the class of 2016. That class is now the focus for most schools now that the 2014-15 season has been put to bed officially. Providence only currently has 1 open scholarship for the class of 2016 but that could change depending on Kris Dunn’s decision and any other player movements that could occur between now and the fall of 2016.

Recruiting News: ESPN Updated Class Of 2016 Top 60 Recruit Rankings

ESPN updated their class of 2016 rankings from the top 25 to the top 60 today. Providence is involved with more than 10% of the ESPN top 60.

Similar to Adam Finkelstein yesterday with the class of 2015, Reggie Rankin offered “Ten things to know about the ESPN 60”. The below are excerpts where a PC recruit is mentioned by Rankin:

3. There are some big-time wing scorers in the Class of 2016. These bucket-getters attack defenders and are difficult to deal with when they have the ball in their hands. Shooting guards Malik Monk and Josh Langford, small forwards Mario Kegler and V.J. King and SG Tyus Battle lead the top 20 players.

5. Combination forward Miles Bridges and point guardDennis Smith are fresh faces in the top 10 because of their consistent production. A few dominant performances this spring on the travel circuit clearly separated them from their peers.

8. There’s a lot of variety and versatility in the 2016 class. Many players can play and excel at two positions, both in the post and on the perimeter. A few examples are Bridges, Omari SpellmanAmir CoffeyVance Jackson and Kobi Jordan-Simmons.
