This past week in Atlanta, history was made as the first ever HBCU ELITE 100 prospect camp took place on Sunday at the International Sports Academy.
The camp featured over 100+ ELITE high school players from across nine different states (GA, SC, NC, MI, TN, FL, AL, OH, WV). Players had the opportunity to showcase and learn from some of the best coaches and trainers in the country in front of HBCU programs and coaches. They also had the privilege to learn the “Art of Shooting” from our special guest and one of the most sought after NBA shooting coaches, Chris Matthews AKA Lethal Shooter.
We had the privilege of having HBCU coaches in attendance while several more viewed the camp live stream via SUVtv.
The HBCU ELITE 100 Prospect camp provided 100 male basketball players (juniors, seniors, 11th, unsigned seniors and post grads), with a structured basketball learning experience that emphasizes fundamental skill development and recruiting exposure.
The goal is for this camp to revolutionize exposure for high school prospects across the country who aspire to play college basketball at a Division I, II, JUCO, NAIA or HBCU level.
The program will activate in major U.S. markets to include Atlanta, NYC, Dallas, Indiana, Carolinas and more.
We were also able to provide a P.E.P Talk Workshop with Dr Zanthia Reddish – Impowerdd LLC. Mother of former Duke University standout and current NBA Atlanta Hawks Cam Reddish. The workshop was a resourceful education and information session for parents around NCAA requirements, SAT/ACT and how to manage the recruiting process for their student-athletes.
Parkview High School (Gwinnett Co.) standout, Jason Edwards, had a successful run throughout the camp. He secured the MVP of the camp as well as two new scholarship offers.
Standout Players from the camp: Aaaron Reddish (Pebblebrook/GA), Earl Burgess III (Dorman, SC), Omarion Smith (Douglas Co/GA), Jackson Price (Hiram/GA), Isaiah Gaines (Pensacola HS/FL), George Pridgett (Legacy,SC) Robert Davis (Farmington HS/MI), Sageny Horace (Port St. Lucie/FL), Sami Pissi (Trinity Christian/GA) + more.
