Providence Recruiting Guide to the Second July 2017 Live Evaluation Period

The second July live evaluation period has arrived and the Providence coaching staff will be out and about stalking down talented future Friars all across the country over the next few days. A live evaluation period means college coaches are allowed to attend and evaluate recruits at certified events. This particular evaluation period begins on July 19th at 5pm and is active through 5pm on July 23rd. To read about why the July live periods are so crucial for recruiting, check out this excellent article by Rob Dauster at College Basketball Talk.

They will have both semifinal games as well as the final game. This is a great chance for fans to see some of the top high school players in the nation and hopefully a Friar recruit or two will be involved in the action.

Under Armour also has action during this live period with their inaugural UA All-America Camp being held in Charlotte from July 7th through July 10th. They will have 80 of the best players from the UAA circuit in attendance.

Adidas is also hosting an event this live period with a similar event to the EYBL’s Peach Jam. The Adidas version is the finale of their Adidas Uprising Gauntlet circuit featuring the top 32 teams from that circuit this Spring. There are also a number of other camps and tournaments ongoing during this live period.
