Providence Recruiting Guide to the Second April 2017 Live Evaluation Period

The second and final live recruiting period of April is here to close out the live evaluation periods until July. Providence’s coaches were at all of the major shoe company events last weekend between Hampton, VA, Dallas, TX and NYC. Week two of the Nike EYBL will be in Indianapolis and they are joined in Indy by Under Armour’s Association. The adidas Gauntlet series heads to Atlanta this weekend.

As I traditionally do each 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. This post will be updated as the weekend goes on and more information is known. The name of the assistant next to the player’s name indicates who the lead assistant is for that player and does not necessarily mean that coach will be at that event Continue reading Providence Recruiting Guide to the Second April 2017 Live Evaluation Period

Who Will Be Providence’s Next Priority Recruit in 2016?

With the news on Sunday night that 2016 guard Temple Gibbs gave his verbal commitment to Mike Brey and Notre Dame, the Providence staff will now have to shift their focus in the class of 2016. Gibbs had been a priority recruit for the 1 open scholarship that PC has for next year. He had visited Providence for Late Night Madness last October in Bob Simon attended a number of his Seton Hall Prep games throughout the season. The question now becomes, who will the Friar coaches prioritize next in 2016?

Let’s take a look at some potential targets that could become the next priority recruit.

Providence Recruiting Guide to the 2nd April 2015 Live Evaluation Period

This is the second of two live evaluation periods in the month of April. A live evaluation period means college coaches are allowed to attend and evaluate recruits. 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. It should be noted that the basketball team’s end of season banquet is on Saturday, April 25th. Cooley will be off the road for that and also the visit of Washington transfer Nigel Williams-Goss. I expect the assistant coaches will skip the banquet to be out recruiting during this critical live evaluation period.

UPDATE: You can watch live games of the EYBL circuit by clicking this link. The players numbers are next to their names below. Big thanks for Craig Leighton for sending the info about the live stream.
