810 Varsity Showcase Session II Preview

810 Varsity closes out their basketball showcase schedule this Saturday at Lee’s Summit High School. This event may very well be their best one yet, as it’s loaded with talent at all levels. Featuring many top ranked teams in the state of Missouri, and some of the best teams in the Kansas City Metro. 

Here is a preview of the games:

11:30 AM Game 1: Liberty vs Harmon

Liberty is the #8 ranked team in Missouri Class 5 and #13 in 810’s Top 25. Liberty will be led by Grant Stubbs, who is on the verge of eclipsing 1,000 career points. The Blue Jays are a well rounded team who will look to get out to an early lead and not look back. I expect Javion Byers and Jermaine Booker will look to make an impact in this game as well. 

Harmon is currently ranked #4 in 6A in Kansas and #14 in 810’s Top 25. Like the Blue Jays, the Hawks are another well rounded team who get contributions from all around. Lonnell Lane, Chauncey Keys, Mike Carson, and Walzel Evans will all help lead the scoring attack for the Hawks. 

1:00 PM Game 2: :Lee’s Summit West vs Leavenworth

Lee’s Summit West is ranked #20 in 810’s Top 25, which will be led by senior guards Tysen Brennan & Tayven Glasgow. Glasgow & Brennan are a great backcourt duo together, who really mesh well. Brennan is a sharpshooter who has the ability to light it up from three, and Glasgow is a great all-around player who will look to guard Leavenworth’s best player and give him trouble. 

Leavenworth will be led by Alan Robinson, Jr. on Saturday. The Pioneers will come in looking to play aggressive from the start and hope to force turnovers early and convert them into points. They’ll be looking to spoil LSW’s Saturday in hopes for an upset bid. 

2:30 PM Game 3: William Chrisman vs Blue Valley West

Chrisman is currently ranked #18 in 810’s Top 25. The Bears will be led by their talented point guard, Isaiah Jackson. Jackson is a gamer who can do it all for the Bears. He will bring tenacious defense and will look to get his teammates going early. 

Blue Valley West is currently ranked #24 in 810’s Top 25. The Jaguars will be led by the duo of Omar Stanley and Spencer Bain. Stanley has been on a tear the last few weeks, leading his Jaguars in scoring during the Valley Center tournament last week. The big man will look to continue to wreak havoc in the post come Saturday. Bain will also be looking to get things going early. Bain is a talented guard who can shoot and will be feeding Stanley early. 

4:00 PM Game 4: Grandview vs CBC (St. Louis, Mo)

Grandview is currently ranked #5 in Class 4 and #16 in 810’s Top 25. They’ll be led by sophomore sensation Taj Manning and current Air Force commit, Reggie Morris, Jr. The Bulldogs will need their star duo to be at their best come this Saturday. 

CBC will be in town from Saint Louis, who are currently ranked #5 in Class 5. They will be led by their star senior point guard, Caleb Love who is a McDonald’s All-American and North Carolina commit. Love is an aggressive guard who can score at all three levels and finish at the rim. Love will be looking to score early and get his teammates involved. He will be accompanied by Larry Hughes, Jr., the son of former NBA player, Larry Hughes. The younger Hughes is a tough guard, crafty, and has an advanced lay-up package. He’ll be looking to feed off of Love and hope to lead his team to victory.

This will most certainly be the highlight event that will have loads of high major talent involved. Must-see basketball!

7:30 Game 6: Lee’s Summit vs Lee’s Summit North

Lee’s Summit, the host team will be led by their big man, Max Whisner. Whisner is a skilled big man who will look to be aggressive in the post early and use his array of moves to get things going. The Tigers bring a balanced scoring attack and will hope to capitalize early. 

Lee’s Summit North will be led by Kolby Franklin. Franklin is a long and athletic guard, who uses his length to his advantage on the defensive end. Lee’s Summit North’s experienced guards and balanced scoring attack will look to get out to a fast start on Saturday in this Rivalry Game.

Press Release

August 2nd, 2019

RecruitLook Hoops will once again host the Larry Hughes Elite Camp on August 10-11, 2019 in St. Louis. This is an invite-only camp that will bring in some of the top high school basketball recruits from across the country. The two-day event will feature 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.

NBA veteran, Larry Hughes, along with state-champion high school coach, Justin Tatum, will be the lead instructors for the Camp that will take place at Hughes’ brand-new facility.

Hughes has an impressive resume having played thirteen seasons at the highest level of professional basketball in the NBA. He was drafted by the 76ers in the 1st round (8th overall) of the 1998 NBA draft out of Saint Louis University, where he was named Freshman of the Year. Hughes was recognized as a versatile and athletic guard with strong defensive abilities, and was selected to the 2004-2005 All-Defensive 1st Team.

“Larry is passionate about spreading his basketball knowledge to the younger generation, which aligns with our vision and overall goal of RecruitLook Hoops,” says Mike Enright, Founder of RecruitLook. “It’s paramount that we have an influential partner like Larry to assist with the development of the next generation of basketball players.”

This camp will also feature wearable technology that is found in top-notch NBA facilities, including the RSPCT Basketball System to track shots, and the Kinexon’s sports technology cameras to measure player movement. All the data is tracked and logged into a digital locker, which will be shared to college coaches of all levels.

“We founded Larry Hughes Basketball Academy as well as our BTS (Basketball Training System) to develop athletes’ basketball abilities and basketball IQ — as well as their character and life skills,” says Larry Hughes, Founder of LHBA and BTS. “We share the same vision when it comes to assisting youth within the sport of basketball. We’re excited to build leaders on and off the court.”

The Larry Hughes Elite Camp provides athletes with 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 campers will receive, the camp will focus on teaching valuable lessons off the court.

The camp is not open to the public, only family members of the campers. Media requests need to be submitted to
