Villanova basketball recruiting: April live period primer

New, 49 comments

What you need to know for April’s first evaluation period.

Kelly Kline | Under Armour

This weekend marks the first evaluation period of the spring and summer recruiting season. College basketball coaching staffs can hit the road and attend AAU events to watch, evaluate and ‘show love’ to their targets.

Jay Wright has already extended several offers to players in both the 2018 and 2019 class that will be playing at the top level of AAU circuit (and there’s some 2020 prospects to watch too), but even at the various sneaker events there will be younger age groups worth monitoring.

Here are the prospects to watch at each event this weekend, with schedule and viewing information where applicable. I’d expect Villanova to hit both the Nike and UA events given the proximity and the number of targets they have playing in the events.
