The Big Shots Myrtle Beach basketball tournament is in the midst of a tournament featuring 440 high school all-star teams at the Myrtle Beach Sports Center.

Big Shots VP and National Recruiting Director Kevin Schneider says this tournament will have a $6-million dollar impact to area businesses during the four day event.

Hundreds of college coaches have flocked to this tournament to check out the talent during the July recruiting period.

Some of the top players in the country are in Myrtle Beach this weekend, including David McCormack, a 6’10” center out of Oak Hill Academy representing VA Team Loaded. McCormack has dozens of college offers, including Kansas, Louisville, South Carolina, and Virginia.

There are several Grand Strand stars competing, including ABC 15 All-Zoner Justin Busby, Robert Guyton, and 6'6" forward Sam Woods representing Manzer.

Earlier this week at a Big Shots exhibition game, Socastee High star Kendrell Jenerette scored 55 points.

The Big Shots Myrtle Beach tournament will wrap up on Sunday.
