Blackjack Classic Returns To Vegas
Adrenaline lands in Vegas for the first of back-to-back, SOLD OUT events. After holding the 2020 event in AZ, Blackjack Classic returns home to notch another year on the sellout streak – a total of four straight.
Kicking off weekend one on Friday, the Las Vegas Prospect Day features over 60 colleges in attendance. NCAA programs are represented at every level including top schools Notre Dame, Cornell, Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, Syracuse, Ohio State, Rutgers, St. Joe’s, Michigan, Vermont, Williams, and Haverford. Before the ball rolls out for 160 players looking to make their mark, coaches will take position groups through a skill specific session and small group drills. After learning from the top minds in the game, day one in Vegas will conclude under the lights with full field games and real time feedback for those looking to reach the next level.
When the first whistles blow on Saturday, Blackjack Classic will officially return home amongst 150+ teams, from 45 clubs and 11 different states. With Adrenaline Power Rankings in play, and top teams in attendance from all regions of the West, every game counts at BJC.

Ty Xanders and the IL squad will be on site covering the top players and all things recruiting over the three days. While NextPro has the game film, our Adrenaline Media Team will be on the content train all weekend long.
