UCONN THE LATEST TO OFFER ’13 SF REGGIE CAMERON
The recruitment of Reggie Cameron continues to steadily increase. The 6-foot-8, 220-pound forward is regarded as one of the elite shooters in the Class of 2013. He has only reinforced that belief on the Nike Elite Youth Basketball Circuit with the NJ Playaz this spring. In the 20-game EYBL regular season, Cameron averaged 15.6 points a game, but most impressive was his three-point shooting accuracy. Cameron drained 51% of his attempts from beyond the arc, going 58 of 114 on threes. He also shot 82% (41-50) from the foul line and helped the Playaz qualify for the EYBL championship next month at the Peach Jam.
Cameron is able to stretch the floor with elite perimeter shooting from the forward spot. Cameron has one of the smoothest jumpers in America and is comfortable with it well past the college three-point line. His basketball IQ also stands out as he has excellent footwork and sees the floor very well. Cameron is constantly working on his quickness and agility to improve his overall game. At 6-foot-8 his size makes him a very difficult matchup.
Cameron, who attends Hudson Catholic in New Jersey, has been very busy in the last several days with college coaches now allowed to contact recruits in the Class of 2013 and 2014 with unlimited phone calls, texts or messages via social networking. It is a rule Cameron welcomes and looks forward to it helping him in the recruiting process to develop relationships with those recruiting him.
“I don’t mind the rule,” he told NBE Sports last night. “It helps you get a better understanding of the coach’s thoughts and getting to know them better.”
He has had a lot of coaches to get to know in just the last several days.
“Miami was the first school to contact me,” said Cameron. “Xavier, North Carolina State, Florida, North Carolina, Richmond, West Virginia, USC, Connecticut, Seton Hall, Clemson and Indiana have contacted me since the rule change.”
The contact from Indiana and Connecticut was new interest in the recruiting process which also led to his latest scholarship offer, which came yesterday.
“UConn is the newest offer,” he said.
Cameron is still taking all the attention on the recruiting side in stride telling NBE that “no one really stands out right now” in their recruiting efforts. He has told NBE earlier this spring that he will look to narrow his list at the end of the summer and go from there.
This past high school season Cameron really proved he was a high-calibre recruit, displaying the improved all-around game that has pushed his recruitment to a higher level this spring. For Hudson Catholic he averaged about 21 points and 10 boards a game while earning 2nd team all-state honors as well as league player of the year, North Jersey player of the year and county player of the year. He will return to Hudson Catholic for a senior season hoping to get his team over the final hurdle and win a state championship.
In the meantime you can catch Reggie Cameron on the AAU circuit with the NJ Playaz as they attempt to capture the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League championship at the Peach Jam during the open July evaluation period. You can be certain the college coaches that will continue to stay in close contact with Cameron will be there to watch him play and continue to develop the relationship with him that they hope will pay off with his commitment. Stay tuned to NBE sports through the summer to follow the progress of his game on the court and his recruitment as one of the top 2013 prospects, not just in the Northeast, but the country.
