Recapping 810 Varsity’s Titan Classic

We spent last weekend at the Titan Classic hosted by 810Varsity and Lee’s Summit West High School. There were teams from all around the metro competing, and we got an early look at some prospects and varsity teams. Here are some quick hot-takes…

(keep in mind… this is summer basketball and some teams are missing players)

Raymore-Peculiar High School is a balanced team that will make a run at the conference title. They have solid guard play and big-man, Kian Scroggins, is one of the best post players in the state.

Raytown South High School was very impressive over the weekend. They won the big-class bracket, knocking off defending Kansas state champions, Blue Valley Northwest. Not a ton of size but a ton of athleticism and interchangeable pieces. This team will make a run at state.

Lee’s Summit High School coached by Blake Little has the potential to be very good – like state bound good. They were young last year, but a lot of that youth got valuable JV and Varsity minutes. Their frontcourt is tall and deep and their backcourt has ball-handlers and shooters everywhere.

Lee’s Summit West High School coached by Michael Schieber will be looking to bounce back this year, and they have a chance to be pretty decent. Tayven Glasgow is the PG that makes this team go – add in a few underclassman that can hoop…and this team can be competitive throughout conference play.

North Kansas City High School has athletes… a lot of athletes. Not too many teams can hang with them if you fall victim of their style, which is a track meet. They play fast, put a lot of pressure on opponents, and get a lot of threes up.

Blue Valley Northwest High School coached by legendary, Ed Fritz, has won 5 of the last 7 Kansas 6A titles, including three in a row. They have a solid team that has to be the odds-on-favorite to 4-peat. They took the loss to Ray South in the championship game at the Titan Classic, but coach Fritz has another special team in the making.

Grandview High School were only in for a couple showcase games, but from the early looks, they’re going to have the pieces in place for a Missouri Class 4A 3-peat. The back-to-back state champs have some size down-low and a deep rotation of guards. Look for Taj Manning to have a coming out party this year.

2019 Larry Hughes Elite Camp Preview

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 info@recruitlook.com.
