Verbal Commits and the Sunflower Showcase are teaming up to host a Junior College (JUCO) Showcase event July 27-29, 2017 in Kansas City. The JUCO event will run in-conjunction with the 2017 Sunflower Showcase, a national NCAA certified boys basketball tournament.
Verbal Commits has quickly cemented themselves as a leader in the college basketball recruiting industry for breaking and confirming high school scholarship offers, tracking college transfers, and providing recruiting updates on JUCO athletes.
The Sunflower Showcase is an established tournament that has hosted some of the best basketball players in college and professional ranks. Each year hundreds of the top travel basketball teams from across the country will compete in front of college coaches searching for their next big recruit.
“We’re always trying to bring in the top talent from across the country at the high school level to give college coaches a reason to come to the Sunflower Showcase, and partnering with Verbal Commits on a JUCO showcase will further incentivize college coaches to attend,” says Mike Enright, Sunflower Showcase Tournament Director.
The Verbal Commits JUCO Showcase will feature freshman and sophomore junior college players seeking more college recruiting exposure. Each JUCO attendee will receive 3 games guaranteed in front of college coaches and a chance to play in the JUCO All-Star Showcase, if selected.
“Our junior college database has grown exponentially the past few years, and we know partnering with the Sunflower Showcase is the right platform to elevate our presence in this space,” says Nathan LeClair, CEO of Verbal Commits.
In addition to Verbal Commits providing event coverage, RecruitLook will be involved to provide recruiting tools for athletes and parents to educate them on the college recruiting process. Every athlete at the Showcases will have access to a RecruitLook membership.
“RecruitLook is excited to again be hosting the events under our brand. We’ll be sure to provide a first class experience for everyone involved,” says Tommy Canale, National Scout for RecruitLook.
You can register your high school AAU team at the Sunflower Showcase, and also be sure to follow the tournament twitter account.
We encourage all JUCO players to apply for a spot at the Verbal Commits JUCO Showcase, and teams attending the Sunflower Showcase can spread the word to their former players now at the JUCO level.
