We were on pace for 100+ teams in 2020 before COVID-19 shifted the way we did things. Early indications show 2021 being bigger and better than what 2020 had planned.
Teams will compete in a competitive League and move up-and-down the standings based on their wins and losses. All roads lead to Atlanta where are bracket finale will take place. Teams will be seeded based on their League standings. Winner take all!
Top players from the League will be invited to participate in the Larry Hughes Elite Camp. This has quickly become one of the top camps in the country and will feature nationally ranked players from across the country to compete against top RecruitLook Hoops League players.
Every event that we host prior to the Bracket Finale in Atlanta, Georiga will be considered a League Session.
Teams are required to play in all 3 NCAA Live Periods as part of the League (2 in April and the July live period).
Teams will be required to play in at least 1 non-live event hosted by RecruitLook Hoops.
Standings will be based on your April Live Period records PLUS your best non-live event record. For example, if you went 8-0 in April live periods, 0-4 in the only non-live period event, then your record is 8-4. If you went 8-0 in April live periods. 0-4 and 2-2 in the non-live period events, then your record is 10-2.
Prices are TBD right now. However, League teams will get discounted prices for tournaments.
Non-League Teams will receive multi-team discounts for select events.
Each Event Will Go As Follows:
1.) Each team will play 4 games at the designated showcase location.
2.) Each event is a 3-day showcase style tournament. Your schedule is mapped out for the entire weekend.
3.) We accommodate schedule requests in the order registration and fees are paid.
4.) The Bracket Finale will be a 4-day event. The bracket will play out for 2 days — then teams will play showcase style games the remaining days.
All events are also Open Runs. We don’t want to limit the number of teams that are looking for quality events to play in, so we will offer Open Run Division for teams to come and play at the same venues. These events will be showcase-style for the Open Run Division.

“We found a recruit at your July event last year. We had no intention of signing anyone but we couldn’t pass him up. We’ll be back every year.”
“We know we’ll get a good evaluation on a recruit with the collection of talent here.”
“Your events are always well run and you take care of us. Coach [head coach] appreciates the info on players, too. You guys have a good thing going.”
“We appreciate everything you do, Mike. You guys do a good job getting teams in here and everything ran smoothly. Keep sending us your event lists.”
At RecruitLook Hoops, we feel it is vital to promote the success of teams and individuals throughout the year, especially during our events, which helps bring more recruiting exposure to all the talent we come across.
Our team is dedicated to covering events from many different angles, which we highlight below.
It’s is extremely important to play in events that will cover AND promote your players! College coaches have very limited travel days this year, and they’ll be relying on RecruitLook Hoops to get names & access to players!
We’ll invite other media outlets to attend events outside our scouts, too.
RecruitLook Hoops was proud to present the Larry Hughes Elite Camp on August 10-11, 2019 in St. Louis. This was an invite-only camp that brought in some of the top high school basketball recruits from across the country. The two-day event featured a mixture of 60 national recruits in the 2020, 2021, and 2022 recruiting classes – all getting the chance to learn from NBA-veteran and skills trainers.
The Larry Hughes Elite Camp provided athletes an opportunity to showcase their skills against elite competition, while also learning more about the game of basketball and life-skills from special guests. In addition to the drill work and skills sessions, the camp focused on teaching valuable lessons off the court.
This camp featured wearable technology that tracked everything that the athletes did on the court. Campers wear the device, and the Kinexon platform takes over from there — providing valuable data that will give college coaches a better idea of what athletes can do on the court.
Hughes has an impressive resume having played for the Philadelphia 76ers, Golden State Warriors, Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Sacramento Kings, Charlotte Bobcats, and Orlando Magic. He was drafted by Philadelphia in the 1st round of the 1998 NBA Daft out of Saint Louis University, where he was named Freshman of the Year. He was recognized as a versatile and athletic guard with strong defensive abilities, and was selected to the 2004-05 NBA All-Defensive 1st Team as a member of the Wizards.
Even though now he’s mostly know as “Jayson Tatum’s Dad”, Justin Tatum is one of the top high school basketball coaches in the country. Justin played college ball at St. Louis University where he helped lead his team to a Conference Championship and NCAA tourney appearance in 2000. Since then, he’s shifted his focus to coaching, where he’s eclipsed 200 wins and 4 state title game appearances — winning twice.
