Recruiting/placement has been going at full tilt at the top state JUCO level since the state playoffs and even before.  July will be the first time that four year college head coaches will get a shot at see the JUCO talent in California.  Antelope Valley College could have as many as five sophomore invitees this year.

All American JUCO Showcase Elite 80 West Location: Southern Highlands Boys and Girls Club – Las Vegas, NV Dates: July 23-24 Info: This invite only camp features the top 2017 junior college prospects in the U.S. More than 500 coaches attended the All-American JUCO Showcase Elite 80 events last year and more are expected this year.

The Showcase will feature 12 teams that consist of 10 players each. The rosters will be divided evenly according to skill and position. Teams will be coached by respected individuals within the college basketball community. Players will play up to four games throughout the weekend. The event will conclude with the Top 20 All-Star Showcase featuring the event’s top players.

Last year’s 80 players were some of the best JUCO players I have ever seen in a showcase.  Parking is very difficult and seating….I recommend bringing your stadium seats…air conditioning didn’t work much…but great talent.
