School lists from the EYBL 

May, 1, 2012
There’s what you see and what you hear and then there’s what it all means. The EYBL and similar events, affords one the opportunity to interact with the prospects and get to know them. It’s good old-fashioned communication, human interaction, talking not texting.

When you communicate with players at events, you put a face to the name and have a chance to add to your evaluation. It may be only a few minutes, but the conversation is a window into the life of the player, albeit only a peek. At this time of the year, much of the talk centers on recruiting and how the process is unfolding.

The spring is a dance. Players are constantly hearing from coaches and the coaches attempt to keep the players “warm” as they finish up their evaluations both on and off the court. Over the next few months, leading up to July, coaches and players alike will formulate and prioritize their lists. Here’s a glimpse into what some of the players had to say last weekend.
