RecruitLook Hoops Session 2 : SW Illinois Jets

By: RecruitLook Hoops Staff

The first and only NCAA Live Period for the Spring is going down this weekend, and we’ll be in Kansas City for the RecruitLook Hoops Session 2 & Open Run. This showcase-style event is sold out and will feature eighty-eight 17u-14u boys teams from 16 different states and Canada. This will be the only time for D1 college coaches to hit the recruiting trails at non-scholastic events before July.

The second-leg of the RecruitLook Hoops League will have teams competing for their seeding position in the Atlanta Finale July 11-14 – this weekend has a lot on the line with seeding and college coaches being allowed in the gym. We should see some competitive games from League Teams and the Open Division.

All participants will be evaluated by RecruitLook Hoops Scouts to earn their invite to the Larry Hughes Elite Camp

A quick look at SW Illinois Jets…

Rashad Weekly-McDaniels, 2020, PG, SW IL Jets. Big physical guard that can get buckets at all 3 levels. Not afraid of the big moment and plays with confidence. Offers: Western Illinois and SIUE.

Patrick Readye, 2020, PF, SW IL Jets. Physical player down-low that is working on extending his offensive game to the mid-range. Expecting several D2 and LM/MM+ schools to get involved.

Jordan Pickett, 2023, G, SW IL Jets. Younger brother of Javon Pickett (Mizzou). His game is already mature. He’ll be on a lot of D1 coaches radar as he gets older. 

Jackson Creel, 2020, G, SW IL Jets. He has the grades and game to play IVY League basketball and in-fact, several IVY schools are expected in Kansas City to watch him.

Ethyn Brown, 2021, 6’1, PG, SW IL Jets Orange. Brown averaged 8pts / 4 assists / 3.5 rebound per game as a sophomore for a good Althoff Catholic High School. 

Shaun Riley, 2021, 6’5”, SF, SW Illinois Jets Orange. Riley is a bouncy forward with nice moves around the basket. Athletic to get out and run & convert in transition. As he extends his game away from the basket, he’ll start to see his game & recruitment take off.

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
