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

Rivals Released Expanded and Updated Class of 2019 Top 100 Recruit Rankings

Rivals expanded and updated their class of 2019 recruit rankings on Thursday with with mere hours to go until the start of the first April live period. The recruiting service bumped the rising junior class rankings from a Top 75 to a Top 100 and there proved to be little change in terms of where Providence’s recruits were ranked. A few new names were added to the mix with the additional 25 ranked spots and Providence has already cast a net over some very talented players who will be evaluated more closely in the upcoming months on the various grassroots circuits beginning on Friday.

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.

Providence Recruiting Guide to the 3rd July 2015 Live Evaluation Period

The final live evaluation period of the summer is upon us and most of the attention turns to Las Vegas as many of Providence’s targets will be lacing it up in Sin City over the next few days. There is also a big AAU National tournament in Louisville taking place and some events happening in New Jersey. The Rivals — read: Wenyen Gabriel — are in Vegas at the adidas Uprising Championships so I would expect Ed Cooley will be all over them at that event.

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

With the 1st live period in the books and Nike and Adidas hosting their big league finals it’s time for Under Armour to take center stage on the shoe company grassroots circuit. The UA Association Finals this weekend in Atlanta will host a number of top Providence targets and you can be sure the Friar staff will be in attendance.

There are also some camps and other tournaments happening all across the country and many players are playing in more than 1 event during this 2nd live period. Ed Cooley shadowed Wenyen Gabriel and the Mass Rivals team during the 1st live period and there is no indication that will change. Jeff Battle will be down in his hometown of Winston-Salem for the CP3 Live event hosted by Phenom Hoops Report. Andre LaFleur is likely going to take in action in Maryland at the Ty Lawson/Victor Oladipo All-American Camp while hopping around to other events. I expect to see Brian Blaney in Brookville, NY for the Adidas Uprising All-American camp while doing some event-hopping himself.
