NCAA Recruiting Period Tips Today
The NCAA recruiting period, often known as the "live period," tips first thing Thursday morning.
The latest chapter in the new recruiting cycle, this year's period will consist of only four days as opposed to the 15 days we've seen in years past.
Of course, those missing days were replaced by two weekends of scholastic events in June and two sessions of NCAA camps later in the month. Regardless of how successful some scholastic events, like the NEPSAC showcases, were though, the fact of the matter is that the vast majority of players in the country didn't have access to June events and so the July period is now more important than ever.
All three of the national sneaker circuits will crown their champions this week. The EYBL Finals will take place at the Nike Peach Jam in North Augusta, South Carolina with Expressions Elite among the 24 teams in the 17u field. BABC's 17u and 16u teams, along with Expressions 16u, will be just across town in Augusta, Georgia for Nike's Peach Invitational Tournament. The Mass Rivals will be in Birmingham, Alabama for the Adidas Summer Championships while NE6 will be in Atlanta for the Under Armour Finals.
Many of the region's top non-sponsored programs will be traveling to Atlantic City, New Jersey and Manheim, Pennsylvania for a pair of Hoop Group events.
