Looking forward to: After the initial Breakout Camp last year, it appears Reebok has stepped it up further snagging a handful of five-star prospects and plenty of post depth for their event. Robert Hubbs will be in attendance and it'll be interesting to see how he does in a big setting against top competition.

adidas Invitational

Where: Indianapolis, Indiana

Looking Forward to: This should be one of the best events of the July period. How will Noah Vonleh match up against the best in 2013 during a team setting, will the up tempo system that Team Thad plays show well against some of the best in the nation, and what younger prospects such as Hyron Edwards really step up. On one of the biggest stages a big time quality roster of teams competes for one of the premier titles of the summer.
