Al three major AAU circuits are in action this weekend, meaning that even though the college basketball season is over, you've still got some basketball to follow if you are a hoops junkie. Villanova has their lone verbal commitment (Omari Spellman) in action for the next few months, and the coaching staff will be on the road frequently to scout their targets in both the 2016 and 2017 classes.

Here's a quick breakdown on the schedule for Villanova's top targets this weekend. Use this as your open thread for any and all recruiting or prospect talk this weekend.
Omari Spellman (Nike EYBL - PSA Cardinals)
Two other Villanova targets -- Kassoum Yakwe and Bryce Aiken -- will also play alongside Spellman. The big fella should be the center of attention on the offensive end for his team though.
- Friday, 6:30pm ET vs. Travelers (KY)
- Saturday, 9:30am ET vs. City Rocks (NY)
- Saturday, 5:00pm ET vs. Playaz (NJ)
- Sunday, 11:00am ET vs. GA Stars (GA)
Lamar Stevens & Lonnie Walker (Nike EYBL - Team Final)
Stevens and Walker are the big names for Villanova fans, but this team is absolutely loaded with Tyus Battle switching over from PSA. They've also got Tony Carr, Josh Sharkey, Nazeer Bostick and Vaughn Covington from the Philadelphia Catholic League. They'll expect to compete for a Peach Jam title this summer.
- Friday, 6:30pm ET vs. Stampede (GA)
- Saturday, 11:00am ET vs. Spiece Indy Heat (IN)
- Saturday, 8:00pm ET vs. Mac Irvin Fire (IL)
- Sunday, 11:00am ET vs. Boo Williams (VA)
Rawle Alkins (Adidas Uprising - NY Rens)
Alkins will be joined in the backcourt by Hamidou Diallo, who Villanova has expressed some interest in for 2017. Alkins is the main man in 2016, as Jay Wright searches for a compliment to Omari Spellman.
- Friday, 8:15pm ET vs. Indiana Elite (IN)
- Saturday, 3:25pm ET vs. Team Loaded (NC)
- Saturday, 8:35pm ET vs. Atlanta Celtics (GA)
- Sunday Playoffs, Times TBD
Quade Green (UAA - WE-R-1)
Green lit up the PCL this year as a sophomore, even if Neumann-Goretti couldn't bring home a title in the end. He should have the keys to the offense for Tim Delaney's old team this spring and summer. WE-R-1 are the defending champs on the UAA circuit.
- Friday, 7:00pm ET vs. New Heights (NY)
- Saturday, 11:30am ET vs. MWA Elite (TX)
- Saturday, 4:45pm ET vs. Carolina Wolves (SC)
- Sunday, 10:15am ET vs. One Nation (MI)
