DUNCANVILLE, Texas -- The entire stable of players in the adidas arsenal was on display at the adidas VIP Exclusive Run this past weekend. The event was defined not by upper-tier 2014 talent but by a number of players who used the weekend to either break out or elevate their stock.
While there was a strong crop of college assistant coaches on hand, most of the high-level head coaches were in Los Angeles for the first session of the Nike EYBL. The Exclusive Run, meanwhile, was a hub for tweener forwards, a few unsigned seniors and an increasing number of talented underclassmen. The 16-and-under division of the tournament was the strongest age group represented in terms of upper-tier talent.
Here’s a look at some of the standouts from the event.
