The focal point of the Deep South Classic event in Raleigh will be on the standouts from the classes of 2015 and 2016, but the younger players will also be getting plenty of attention. Some of the top prospects from the Class of 2017 will be playing for the Bay State Magic club.
“I think this team will be very successful. Most of them have been together for four or five years, and they are a loyal, hardworking group of kids,” said Coach Jim Wardwell. “We have a balanced team with a lot of depth, and there aren’t any egos. These kids are happy to be playing with each other.”
The Magic will be tested at the 2014 Deep South Classic, which will be played in on April 25-27. Now in its 17th year, the Deep South Classic annually hosts many of the nation’s elite travel teams in a field that will eclipse 200 squads, and hundreds of collegiate coaches will be on hand searching for talent. The 2014 event will mark the second year that the Deep South Classic has been held at the Raleigh Convention Center. The venue was a tremendous success in its debut last year, with all games played at one site on 18 courts, and it is in a convenient central location.
