Place: Wilson, NC (Barton College Gymnasium)
Event: Elite 80 Showcase Camp (NC State commit Ryan Harrow and recruit Luke Cothron)
We mentioned earlier that NC State commit Ryan Harrow would be in attendance this weekend at the ScoutsFocus Elite 80 Showcase in Wilson, NC. We also wanted to let you know a few more details about the event.
Luke Cothron has confirmed that he too will be in attendance until 2pm, at which time he'll be heading back to Raleigh to take in yet another NC State football game. This is more good news for Pack fans who are hoping to land the highly touted big man from Flora MacDonald.
The event will begin at 9:30am and the we have been told that the camp will be structured around the State football game, taking into consideration the State fans that want to see Ryan and Luke, but still want to make it back to Raleigh for the game. We are told that both Ryan and Luke will play two full games and they will also hold a dunk contest (not sure if any State targets will be participating) all before 2pm, giving everyone ample time to get back for anyone with tickets to the State/Duke football game at 3:30pm.
We were in attendance at the last Elite 80 in Wilson and got some great footage of Ryan. The camp is structured to have 80 elite players that are looking to be seen by college coaches. The last event was during a dead period, but this one is open to college coaches, so you may see a few familiar faces in the crowd. This event is also being attended by SLAM magazine, and HoopMixTape among others.
If you have some free time Saturday morning, we encourage you to get out to Wilson, NC (@the Barton College Gym) and get a glimpse of Ryan and Luke. You will also get to see other talent you may recognize such as Maryland commit Mychal Parker and others.
If you plan on attending let us know. We'll see you out there. Here are the highlights from the last Elite 80, in case you missed it.
