2021 was a great year on the RecruitLook Hoops Circuit. Over 1,000 teams and thousands of college coaches (in-person & on the live streams) were in attendance. The results… a lot of student-athletes receiving scholarship offers!

The collection of talent from up-and-down the rosters was unmatched on the independent circuit scene. Teams from all over the country competed in the RecruitLook Hoops Circuit, with some of the talent getting offers like: Michigan State, Kansas, Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, Minnesota, Mizzou, and on and on.

Yes, there were lots of division one level players this year but remember we said up-and-down the rosters — meaning the depth of talent was off the charts. In fact, we had 150+ non-D1 college coaches at our July live period event in Kansas City! College coaches of ALL levels are tuned in with the RecruitLook Hoops Circuit.

The circuit finale in the 15u, 16u, and 17u games was an indication of how the grind of the season was. The games during bracket play were intense and in most cases decided by a single possession. Every championship came down to a last second shot — with the 17u champion, Young & Reckless, winning on a buzzer-beater.

We finished the year once again with one of the best camps in the entire country… The Larry Hughes Elite Camp. We had 60 of the nation’s best prospects in St. Louis competing and learning from NBA veteran, Larry Hughes.

RecruitLook Hoops' Larry Hughes Elite Camp

RecruitLook Hoops was proud to present the Larry Hughes Elite Camp 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 2022, 2023, and 2024 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.
