SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Over 70 teams and nearly 40 college recruiters flocked to the Chatham County Soccer Complex for this weekend's Senior Cup College Showcase.

Tournament director Gary Wright says it's a chance for athletes throughout the Southeast to display their skills in hopes of catching the attention of potential universities.

"I believe there was a good 20-30 players that got picked up from last year." Wright said.  "It's been very worthwhile."

The showcase, put on by the Coastal Georgia Soccer Association, began Saturday and concluded Sunday afternoon.
