Every year, the Nike Peach Jam is one of the premier events for college recruiting junkies. An inordinate amount of college prospects and coaches descend on North Augusta, SC for the 5-day event, and the Kansas basketball program always has at least two or three coaches on hand.

The live recruiting period is about to begin, and it’s a big one for the Kansas Jayhawks coaching staff. With 2017 expected to be a huge recruiting year for Coach Bill Self, the Jayhawks coaches will be out at the Nike Peach Jam (also known as the EYBL Finals) in full force.

While there are other major events over the next two weeks – including the Under Armour Finale and Adidas Gauntlet Finale – the Nike event figures to once again feature the main targets for the Kansas staff.

Below, we’ll take a look at the top guys to watch, as long as a few we think may draw more attention now that the live period is here.
