First Day of the Live Period Brings Wealth of Opportunity

Whether you’re a scout, a coach, or a player, there is one month that everyone in high school recruiting has circled each and every year. The July Live Periods bring coaches and scouts to gyms across America to recruit high schoolers.

On Wednesday, the live period opened up for Division 1 coaches to watch players from all across the country, making it crucial for players to bring their A game in order to get recruited during this important month.

At 5:00, the Division 1 coaches came to Albright College to watch some of the top talent that the Elite session two had on display.

Many of the schools who arrived at the camp were in search of certain recruiting targets, much like Navy’s intended interest into rising Seton Hall Prep senior Austin Williams.

Joining Navy amongst the Division 1 programs were Penn State, Holy Cross, Columbia, Akron, Towson, and Central Connecticut State.

While a few of the camp’s elite talents enter with multiple top offers, many of the recruits are looking to receive their first offer or add to their current small list of offers.

One of those campers is Williams himself, who entered camp not having yet received any offers. However, over the past two days, he has received two. Both American and St. Thomas Aquinas have offered the 6-foot-3 combo guard from New Jersey.

Williams brings explosiveness, shooting ability, and excellent court vision each and every time he’s out on the court. And now, with the increased exposure from the camp, and continued quality performances, Williams could potentially be in line to add to his list throughout the live period.

While Williams was out impressing scouts on one court, Jalen Vaughns received a D-2  offer from Millersville. Vaughns, a combo guard from Pocono Mountain West, continued his solid play from his high school season into the live periods. The rising senior showed off his ability to both score and facilitate, as well as provide excellent energy on the defensive end.

With two more days left of camp, the campers will have even more opportunities on Thursday and Friday to make their case as a talent that will catch the eye of college coaches. For now, this camp serves as a perfect opportunity for many players to state their claim to a college athletics scholarship.
