  • After winning a gold medal in the recent FIBA U19 World Cup in Egypt, Canada is riding high in the basketball world right now.

    The young Canadian talent will attract a slew of high-major college coaches this weekend for two events over the last live period in July.

    Kentucky’s John Calipari, Arizona’s Sean Miller, Baylor’s Scott Drew, Vanderbilt’s Bryce Drew, Oregon’s Dana Altman, Michigan’s John Beilein and South Carolina’s Frank Martin are among those expected at The Classic in Toronto run by the CIA Bounce AAU program.

    Many of those same coaches may also attend the Signature Camp run by UPlay Canada. Coaches from Kansas, Louisville, UCLA, UConn, UNLV, Virginia and Washington are also expected at this event.

    “Canadian talent continues to grow,” said Tony McIntyre, the director of CIA Bounce and also the father of Lakers guard Tyler Ennis and Dylan Ennis, who recently signed in Serbia. “This year promises to be the best year in recruiting North of the border with coaches attending the Classic in Toronto.”

    Marvin Bagley III, the No. 1 prospect in the Class of 2018, will begin his official visit to USC on Wednesday and will then visit Arizona the first week of his August, as first reported by FanRagSports.com two weeks ago.

    “USC is the 26th and 27th [of July], and Arizona is the first week in August,” Marvin Bagley Jr. said at the Peach Jam.

    Bagley is expected on USC’s campus after 5 p.m. Wednesday until Friday, at which point their staff will begin recruiting in Las Vegas.

    The 6-foot-11 Bagley is coming off his first official visit to Duke beginning last Thursday. Bagley’s father, Marvin Jr., is originally from Durham and Marvin III’s grandmother still lives there.
