Some of the top high school basketball talent North Carolina has to offer will head to Raleigh this weekend to showcase their skills.

The 7th Annual Dave Telep's Carolina Challenge will tip off on Saturday morning at Ravenscroft School. Slideshow     u 08 Our lens on 2013 Carolina Challenge players

Each year, the Carolina Challenge features 80 of the state's top underclassmen basketball players in a one-of-a-kind camp. The players will be put into teams by Dave Telep, the Senior National Recruiting Analyst for ESPN, and will play a series of games against one another.

"This belongs to the guys of this state. It has my name on it, but it's their deal," Telep said. "We have what I think is the youngest group we've ever had. I think the freshman class in our state will be deeper than it has been in years past."

The camp also features skill development, a recruiting seminar, a guest speaker, and more.

Since the Carolina Challenge was created in 2007, the event has featured seven McDonald's All-Americans, seven Jordan Brand Classic selections, and has seen the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft – John Wall.

"It's starting to add up," said Telep. "If you look at the ACC, at one point this past year, 20 percent of the ACC had played in the Carolina Challenge."

Admission to the Carolina Challenge is free and open to the public. Concessions will be available.

Players will begin check-in at 7:45 a.m., with a team practice starting at 9 a.m. The first games will take place at 9:30 a.m.

Start times for games throughout the day are 9:30 a.m., 10:40 a.m., 1:20 p.m, 2:30 p.m., 4:10 p.m., and 5:20 p.m.

"The fan can really expect to see a snapshot of the talent in the state of North Carolina. There's no fluff, everyone is here for a reason," said Telep. "We could see about 75 of the 80 kids playing Saturday become Division-I basketball players, so you're getting an opportunity to see kids who are going to play college basketball."

Local players participating in the event this year include:

Julius Barnes, Garner
Dante Battle, Rocky Mount
Ian Boyd, Apex
Rob Brown, Millbrook
Austin Burnette, Cardinal Gibbons
Gary Clark, Clayton
Chris Corchiani, Ravenscroft
Ricky Council, Northern Durham
Tyler Creammer, South View
T.J. Evans, Apex
Parker Fennema, Sanderson
Cameron Gottfried, Broughton
Phillip Haynes, North Raleigh Christian
Brandon Ingram, Kinston
Quentin Jackson, Middle Creek
Justice Kithcart, Riverside
