Posted Thursday, January 7th, 2021

Various states are beginning to get back on the court this week with state associations taking different approaches on return-to-play protocols throughout the region, with those protocols often beginning with their respective state governments.  So who is playing right now?

Over the course of the last two years our #RealTalk series has aimed to provide some candid insights on a recruiting world that can be extremely difficult for players and families to navigate because of the amount of misinformation and "noise" filling gyms and the internet alike.  This year, with the pandemic's impact on the recruiting world, many of these lessons are even more applicable now than they were then.  Consequently, we are looking back on the series in hopes… READ MORE >

Admittedly, we couldn't be sure how it would go. But when it was all said and done, the results exceeded even our most ambitious hopes.  There were 50 players profiled in the class of… READ MORE >
