Governors Challenge Attracts College Recruiters to Delmarva

Posted:

SALISBURY, MD- With 35 high school boys basketball teams from all over the region and hundreds of players, the Governors Challenge is a great place for college recruiters to try and find those special players to add to their rosters. For players, the Governors Challenge is their opportunity to show they have the skills to play at the next level.

Players like Seaford's Jakeen Banks knows this is their opportunity to showcase their talents and help bring college recruiters their way. 

"People get caught in trying to stand out," said Banks. "If you play as a team the recruits will see that you may be a great fit for their school."

Edgar Walker is the director of DMV Elite Scouting. He was one of the recruiters that were found sitting at the baseline checking out the competition. He admits that he doesn't come to Delmarva often, but this is a tournament he doesn't miss.

"It's just kind of a nice situation scouting wise," said Walker. "You see that with some college coaches turning out and scouting these players. And guys like myself with scouting services come through and try and get a good read on some of these guys."

The Governors Challenge has had much success in the past for discovering talent.

"Players have made names for themselves here. Good teams have made names for themselves here in the past," said Walker. "I think we'll see that again this year."
