The nineteenth annual Deep South Classic will be presented by the Greater Raleigh Sports Alliance in April. The four day event will be hosted at the Raleigh Convention Center that will feature 20 courts from Thursday, April 21 through Sunday, April 24, 2016.

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 2016 event will include the following divisions: 17 National, 17 Signature, 16 National, 16 Signature, 15 National, 15 Signature, 14 National, 14 Signature, and 13 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 2017 through 2022. 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.
