AAU tournament in city this weekend

Some of Baltimore's best high school basketball talent will be on display this weekend as the spring AAU season tips off.

The inaugural Karcher & Wise Spring Classic will feature teams from three age groups – 15s, 16s and 17s – all day Saturday and Sunday at St. Frances.

The Baltimore Under Armour Panthers and Cecil Kirk are two of the more high-profile programs scheduled to participate. The Panthers’ 16-and-under squad features Patterson point guard Aquille Carr, and the 17-and-under team has Digital Harbor’s Daquan Cook.

Check out Charm City Finest for a complete tournament schedule.

All games will be played at St. Frances. This post earlier stated that the Carmelo Anthony Youth Center would also host games, but that's not the case.

Looking at Kenny Tate switching positions, do you think that's a good move?
Had he decided to come out, he probably would have been a 2nd RD pick at S. Is it smart to mess with that?
I guess with his speed and ability, he could be an elite LB. But, isn't he a little too small? I would hate to see him get hurt getting blocked by FB and cutting OL.

I still think he is a pro bowler within 2 years of the NFL. AMazing talent.

Ryan: Good question. I guess this is a 'trust the coaches' scenario, but I was stunned that they moved him after he had such a great junior year. -- Matt

does anyone know the name of the PG for the VA Assault team? that kid is incredible!
