July is a loaded month for college basketball recruiting, as the championship tournaments of the major AAU circuits give prospects a chance to show what they can do when the stakes are highest.
Nike’s Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) culminates in the Peach Jam in South Carolina, Under Armour’s Association gets its Finals in Georgia and Las Vegas hosts the Super 64 finale for Adidas’ Gauntlet. All three tourneys featured a share of the nation’s best high school talent, all hoping to excel in front of top college coaches.
