The New York CHSAA is also planning a Live event in June, sources said.
Philadelphia is also expected to host live period events both weekends in June. D.J. Wagner, the No. 1 player in the Class of 2023, plays for Camden High School, which is expected to attend the Philadelphia event.
The NEPSAC is also looking at holding an event at Avon Old Farms June 25-27.
With multiple states hosting events on the same weekends, college coaches will have to be organized in planning which players to watch and which events to attend. Coaches will be busy those weeks.
