With the Spring live periods of April and the various non-live period events in May in the rear-view mirror Scout.com released an updated and expanded Class of 2019 rankings on Thursday. The previous rankings were only a Top 60. The Friar staff is still looking into adding a player for next season and the main focus beyond that is the Class of 2018, but it’s key for relationship building to start as early as possible. Unlimited electronic communication just started for coaches and members of the 2019 class on June 15th at midnight. Here are players Providence is involved with in the class of 2019 on Scout’s latest Top 100:
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
The first live recruiting period of April is upon us and the Providence coaches are expected to hit the ground running to find future Friars all across the USA this weekend. The major shoe companies have their opening weekends with Nike’s EYBL starting off in Hampton, VA, Under Armour’s Association beginning in NYC for the second straight year and the adidas Gauntlet series kicks off from Dallas, TX. You can also listen to the latest Friartown Fan Voice podcast where, among other interesting topics, Brendan McGair and I previewed the first live period of April.

Providence’s first public appearance at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center for the 2016-17 season is about a week away when the Friars will play an exhibition game against Canadian school Carleton University on October 29th. The season being right around the corner doesn’t mean that the Providence coaching staff has taken their foot off the pedal on the recruiting trail, though. Providence extended an offer to a 2019 big man this week and has recently expressed interest in some new names in the class of 2018. Let’s learn more about these new Providence targets.
It’s September 27th and Providence has two commitments for the Class of 2017 to fill the two scholarships that were available for next year’s roster at the present. While the coaching staff hasn’t totally stopped keeping tabs on 2017 targets, much of the recruiting attention has already shifted to both the Class of 2018 and Class of 2019. As of today, pcbb1917.com now has a “Class of 2019” page. There are only 8 recruits there right now compared to over 30 on the page for the Class of 2018, so let’s take this opportunity to meet some of the players the Providence coaching staff has already identified — and offered in many cases — from the class of current high school sophomores.
