First Annual TSR Unsigned Senior Showcase to Be Held Saturday
Sometimes, all we really need in life is an opportunity.
For dozens of Memphis-area basketball players in the Class of 2013, that opportunity has been lacking. College coaches, enamored of big-name talent such as JaJuan Johnson (Southwind), Nick King (East), Austin Nichols (Briarcrest) and Johnathan Williams, III (Southwind) might not have paid attention to kids like Keydren Moore (Southwind), Tyler Lee (East), Gavin Robinson (Mitchell) or Jeremee Hemphill (Central).
Make no mistake about it, though, this class is deep in talent, and plenty of intriguing basketball players are still looking for colleges to attend starting this fall. Chances to let college coaches see what they can do, however, are quickly dwindling away.
There is still time to get seen, though. On Saturday, May 18, 2013 at Victory University, 255 North Highland, TSR Managing Editor Leroy Watson, Jr. proudly presents the 2013 TigerSportsReport.com Unsigned Senior Showcase, sponsored by Elite Recruiting Service.
The event will begin promptly at 1:00 p.m. and end at 4:00 p.m. Registration begins today. Reserve your place by calling 901-315-1246 and giving us the information you will be prompted for. The cost is just $20 per student-athlete. Participants are advised to show up at noon on Saturday to check-in and pick up their practice jerseys.
There are 12 colleges already confirmed to be there; we project that there will be 20 different college coaches in attendance and quite possibly even more than that. Colleges that have already committed to have a representative on-site are:
Delta State (MS) Community College
Eastern Oklahoma State College
Howard (TX) College
Itawamba (MS) Community College
Jackson State Community College
Kennesaw Junior College
Northwest Mississippi Community College
Shawnee Community College
Southwest Tennessee Community College
Participants will go through warm-up drills and then begin competitive scrimmages until 3:00 p.m. Following a brief intermission, the best performers will be divided into two teams and a final showcase will be played.
College athletes interested in transferring to a junior college are also welcome.
It is expected that about 60 student-athletes will show up.
The event is open to the public and local media. Light refreshments will be available. For more details, contact Leroy Watson, Jr. via e-mail: Leroy@tigersportsreport.com.
