Player Focus: Che Evans

Today, we got an opportunity to chat with highly touted 6-6 wing, Che Evans about his impending transfer, college recruiting, and recovery from an injury. The versatile 2020 recruit has offers from Georgetown, Boston College, Boise State, Florida and Long Beach to name a few.

RLH: Why did you transfer to Neuman Goretti?

CE: After my shadow date with Head Coach Carl Arrigale and Assistant Coach Pat Sorrentino, I knew this was my home away from home. Watching Goretti lose to rival Philadelphia Catholic League, Roman Catholic, on YouTube in front of eight thousand plus [fans] was all I needed to see. As a senior, my parents and my godfather (Coach Wise) decided I needed a more competitive schedule, and overall structure to get ready for High level D1 College basketball. My goal is to be the difference, and help get this program win it this upcoming season.

RLH: How’d your injury impact your summer last year? 

CE: Last summer at 16u EYBL I showed my abilities in front of Scouts, and this helped me get invites to Pangos All American Camp and Nike Elite 100. I finished #3 overall at Pangos in 3pt%.  When I got to Nike Elite 100 Camp days later, my left shin was nagging me to the point I had to see the doctors provided by Nike Camp. I was diagnosed at home with a slight fracture to the shin, and I had to shut it down all July. This year, I’m confirmed to play in 17u EYBL sessions only to ensure I make therapy in between.

RLH: What camps will you attend this year? 

CE: I’ve already been invited to Pangos and NBA Top 100 Camp, but I’m not 100% sure I’m attending either, due to staying on target with therapy. I don’t want any setbacks, so I’m sticking with the doctors orders.

RLH: How is college recruiting going?

CE:  I’m gonna take my time and get some visits in with my parents. Oregon State and Texas Tech hopefully in May. In June, I want to visit Florida. I already did unofficial visits to TCU and Ohio State which I enjoyed, and an official to Boise State, where the Staff view me as [being able to make] an impact from day one. My goals are to be part of a family, and a system that will allow me some freedom.

RLH: We saw that you are listed on early mocks (NBA Draft Room) as a 2022 Prospect.

CE: My goal is to become a Pro, whether it’s year #1 or #3. I only focus on improving, and everything else will take care of itself. The college of my choice will obviously be a situation where they prepare me to eventually becoming a Pro. Every school listed in my Top 6 love big wings, and focus on development.

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
