2022 Circuit Information

2022 RecruitLook Hoops Information

We hosted 1,000+ boys basketball teams in 2021 and over 1,000 college coaches (in-person & on the live streams) throughout the spring and summer. Our circuit teams benefited by playing top-level competition in front of college coaches — giving the coaches the best opportunities for proper player evaluations.

The Circuit is open to any team to play in our Open Runs; however, we have a select group that is in our premier division that gets all the benefits of committing to the circuit. Teams will compete in a competitive League and move up and down the standings based on their wins and losses. All roads lead to The Finale where our 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 Kansas City 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). The July 7-10 Live Period will be in 2 locations (Atlanta and Omaha). Teams will need to qualify for the Atlanta event based on standing and invites from RL Hoops staff.

Teams will be required to play in at least 1 non-live event hosted by RecruitLook Hoops.

Standings will be based on your Live Period records PLUS your best non-live event record. For example, if you went 12-0 in live periods, 0-4 in the only non-live period event, then your record is 12-4. If you went 12-0 in live periods. 0-4 and 2-2 in the non-live period events, then your record is 14-2.

Prices are per event. 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 in Kansas City. The Bracket will take place over 3 or 4 days depending on location and number of teams.

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 want to make this a great experience for everyone involved. We want you to be proud of the Circuit that you are in. We know that the best advertising and marketing is word-of-mouth, and we’ll strive to make a lasting impression on you.

Our team has been running events for decades, and we know that attention to detail, big or small, is key when running an event. We’ll make sure that your time on the RecruitLook Hoops League is enjoyable.

Every team must visit each individual tournament page and register each time for the tournament through the links provided.

ALL RecruitLook Hoops Events will be Live Streamed through BallerTV for College Coaches and Fans to enjoy!

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.
