Top Flight Invite: How to watch key recruits (like Bronny)

The third annual Top Flight Invite will feature eight elite club basketball teams vying for a tournament championship in Las Vegas.

This year's tournament might feature the strongest group of star power and talent with 28 prospects ranked in the 2023 ESPN 100, 2024 ESPN 60 or 2025 ESPN 25, including commits for Kentucky, Duke, Oregon, Kansas and UCLA, as well as the uncommitted Bronny James, the 34th-ranked senior, and Cameron Boozer, the son of former NBA All-Star Carlos Boozer and the No. 1-ranked sophomore.
