Last week was another busy one on the basketball recruiting trail, as the second of July's three open evaluation periods brought plenty more events and lessons to be learned.

We already caught you up with what we learned from the first eval period (July 10-14). So with the second live period (July 17-21) now over and our team of RecruitingNation scouts out at events like the Nike Global Challenge, Under Armour Summer Jam, Best of the South, Elite 32, a pair of Hoop Group events, The Battle at the Beach and a pair of SoCal events, it's time to check in again and see what they learned from the second week. We'll weigh in again next week following the third live period (July 24-28) to recap not only the final evaluation period but also the entire month of July.

What was the biggest thing you learned from the second evaluation period?
