The Deep South Classic brings together many of the nation's elite prep athletes during the only live recruiting period allowed by the NCAA. In past years, prep superstars such as Courtney Paris, Alana Beard, Erlana Larkins, Candace Parker, Noelle Quinn and Tiffany Jackson have played in the event.

The 2014 event will include the following divisions: 17 National, 17 Signature, 16 National, 16 Signature, 15 National, 15 Signature, 14 National, 14 Signature, 13 National and 12 National . Each age group will include the top travel teams from across the country, featuring the top players. Considerable attention will be focused on the prospects in the Classes of 2014 through 2020. The Deep South Classic also provides college coaches with a tremendous opportunity to scout the up-and-coming youngsters. A series of elite players made their first mark on the national scene at past Deep South Classics, and more will gain fame this spring.
