FIVE-STAR BASKETBALL CAMP TO OPEN SUMMER IN A BIG WAY ON MONDAY
Nestled in Prince Edward County, Virginia is one of the oldest college institutions in the country, Hampden-Sydney College. A town of roughly 1300 people which includes the student body of this premier liberal arts college.
Many of basketball’s top players have converged on to Five-Star’s Virginia home to open their summer and have used this Five-Star session as a springboard towards a greatness.
Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Zach Randolph, John Wall, Tywon Lawson and the list of pros who at 15 years old developed their game here is staggering.
A few years ago, a skinny then 6-6 forward out of Chicago recently relocated to North Carolina turned heads, he’s now in the NBA draft. His name is Quincy Miller. Quincy spent back-back summers at Five-Star’s Hampden-Sydney Camp.
This summer will be no different with many talented players from Maryland on south looking to gain momentum and build their game for the high stakes of July.
Here’s a few of the “must see” list of participants;
Josh Newkirk 6-2 2013 Word of God (holding offers from Tennessee, NC St, Ga Tech…)
Josh Level 6-5 2014 New Gardens Friends (holding offers from Oklahoma State, Charlotte…)
Level burst onto the scene last summer at Hamdpen-Sydney as a major award winner. The bouncy wing has steadily improved his offensive arsenal and with some two-ball work this summer can solidify himself as a high-major guard.
Perry Dozier 6-4 2015 Spring Valley HS (strong interest from Virginia, Virginia Tech, South Carolina and Miami)
Dozier looks to return and improve on last year’s impressive performance where he shared the Most Promising Prospect Award. PJ has been working hard this spring on taking the game over and has helped lead 15u Columbia Slammers to great heights. We look for PJ to continue his ascension as one of the nation’s best players in the 2015 class.
Kanayo Obi-Rapu Jr 6-3 2014 New Gardens Friends (strong interest Ohio State, Wake Forest…)
Johnathan Milligan 6-2 2013 Christian Faith (Strong interest from Oregon State, Clemson, C Michigan)
Torian Graham 6-5 2013 Word of God (NC St commit)
RJ Currington 6-5 2013 Oak Hill Academy (Harvard, William & Mary)
VJ King 6-5 2016 St Vincents St Marys (OH)
Jarrod Williams 6-3 2013 Blue Ridge School (holds offers from W KY, Ohio U and VCU)
Patrick Rooks 6-3 2013 Charlotte Christian (Clemson commit)
Ahmad Fields 6-5 2013 Blue Ridge Schools (GW, Colorado, St Josephs)
