This is the third year that LacrosseRecruits.com has written a recruiting camp guide. Each year, the date that they publish continues to creep earlier in the year. Players have already started receiving invitations to Jake Reed’s Nike Blue Chip, Maverik’s Showtime Spotlight, and Top 205.
The need for a guide like this has become more and more important as camps have pushed the invitation process ahead because they are all competing for the top players in the country. There is lots of legwork that goes into getting a spot at these camps and showcases (need recommendations from your coach, must get paperwork together, submitting highlight reels, etc) but even more work goes into making sure you are on the map approaching the summer.
