Phoenix, AZ. – The 4th installment of EBC Arizona attracted over 150 players from the valley of the sun as well as a few from outside state (CA, NM, NV, WA). Although there were none of the nationally recognizable names like there have been in the past (Jaelen House, Jason Harris, Jovan Blacksher, Nico Mannion and Tyrone Washington), the overall talent pool level went much deeper than it has ever been.
Here is a look at some of the top players in attendance that stood out:
