We’re excited to join forces with the Hardwood Classic on July 16-18 to co-host the biggest independent event in the Midwest during the NCAA Live Period. This is going to really benefit the players as more teams will be competing under one event — meaning more college coaches watching the games.

Entering the 21st year of the prestigious event, AAU teams from all over the country will be in attendance. Each year, some of the top talent will be on display for the Sunflower Showcase.

July 23-25 | Indianapolis | Dinos Trigonis Pangos Events + RecruitLook Hoops
We co-host the Indy event with Pangos founder, Dinos Trigonis. The west coast resident is one of the most connected event operators in the country and host of some of the biggest camps in the country. The collaboration will be one for the ages as we bring in top teams from around the country for a showcase event in front of college coaches.
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.
