Hey gang –
I spent most of this sun-shiny, pleasant day at Day 1 of the second annual Maverik Showtime National Recruiting Spotlight at Western Connecticut University’s West Campus in Danbury.
We will have updates throughout the week as well as video interviews and highlights. So be sure to check back for that.
The invitation-only event includes 160 of the top rising sophomores and rising juniors in the nation.
And I do mean nation. There are players competing this week from Las Vegas, Florida, Kentucky and Oregon as well as the traditional hotbeds and the nation’s No. 1 lax hotbed the New York/Connecticut LaxLessons.com region.
The players spent most of today checking in and getting set up with the their dorm rooms, getting their roommate assignments, etc.
After that, each team had an hour-long practice, and then games began.
There will be games all week from 9-11 a.m., 1-3 p.m. and 5-7 p.m.
The all-star game, which attracts the most attention from college coaches, will be held on Wednesday night at 7:30.
It’s early, of course, but here are a few players to keep an eye on as the week unfolds:
- Read “Comments” portion of this thread for many other names of those participating. If you have any questions regarding who else is attending, etc., fire away and I’ll answer back.
