Four area high school basketball players to participate in elite camp

Posted: July 11, 2013

SOME OF THE best high school basketball players in the country will assemble at Philadelphia University today for the start of Reebok Classic Breakout camp.

Players will participate in the 3-day event to showcase their skills and boost their recruiting stock to a number of college coaches.

Four players from the Philadelphia area are among the 100 players at this year's camp.

Senior Rashaan Armstead-Holloway, from Schalick High in Elmer, N.J., has offers from Drexel, La Salle and Temple. Senior Mike Watkins, of Imhotep, committed to Penn State last month. Senior Kyle Kuzma, of Rise Academy, has offers from several colleges including Penn State, Texas A & M, Virginia Commonwealth and Utah. And, junior Sean Lloyd of the Haverford School has an offer from Saint Joseph's, and has drawn interest from Syracuse, Miami, Georgetown and La Salle.

Sixty of the campers were handpicked by a national selection committee. The other 40 were among the top performers at regional Reebok Classic Runs held in eight cities around the nation.

The camp has several success stories, including Temple players Dana Dingle and Josh Brown.

Last year, the Harrison twins, Aaron and Andrew, participated in the camp and committed to Kentucky to play for John Calapari.
