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.

2015 Nike EYBL Session 3 Providence Recruiting Guide

Nike EYBL continues with their 3rd session of the regular season on the way to the finals at the Peach Jam. There are a number of Providence recruits playing on the EYBL circuit this year again and even though the coaches won’t be allowed to attend this 3rd session in Houston there will be media members there covering the games and there’s a possibility for some games to be live streamed as well.
