Daphne, AL – The NCAA Basketball Live Evaluation Period is upon us quick fast and in a hurry. We all know that the Transfer Portal is full of talent across the board. So will there be room for graduating high school seniors and athletes coming behind them.
The NCAA has granted an extra year of eligibility to athletes because of COVID-19 making programs shutdown their season early. Now that restrictions have been lifted by the CDC dealing with COVID-19, colleges and the NCAA are allowing Coaches to do in person visits and yes the live period.
This Live Period will be a very different and College Coaches will really be evaluating athletes on every aspect of their game and character. Athletes will have to show that they are coachable, a team player, overcome adversities like if their shot isn’t falling what else can you do. College Coaches look for key things in an athlete that will fit their program and style of play.
Let’s not forget about the most important element academics is the key to being a student athlete, without grades you can’t be on the court. Good luck to all athletes this live period.
