Sweet Shooting Guard Camps at Auburn

Texan Damiyne Durham is big scoring two-guard being recruited by the Auburn Tigers.

Oakwood, Tex.--One of the most impressive performers at Auburn's elite basketball camp knows how to put the ball in the basket.

Damiyne Durham, a six-foot-four shooting guard, averaged 27 points this past season while earning All-State honors as a junior at Oakwood High School.

At Auburn's camp he showed a great shooting touch with the ability to make treys from well behind the three-point line. The guard notes that he learned to be a good shooter on his own without any coaching.

"Shooting is something that comes natural to me," he says, adding that is a skill he has felt comfortable doing ever since he started playing the game.

At this stage of the summer before his senior season at Oakwood High the guard notes he has scholarship offers from Auburn, Baylor and Marquette.

Commenting on Auburn, he says, "I liked it a lot at the camp. There were a lot of good people there and we had a lot of fun."

"I like the real big conference (SEC) they are in and that they play on television, which is something I want to do," Durham says. "I like the campus, too. Everything about Auburn is nice."

This summer as he attends camps and plays with his AAU team Franchize All-Stars, Durham says he is working on taking the ball to the basket, a skill that should improve as he matures. "I am still growing," he points out, noting he currently checks in at 175 pounds on his six-foot-four frame.

A starter since his ninth grade season at Oakwood, he was named his district MVP as a junior as he led his team to the regional finals. "We made it to the game before state," he says.

He is in no hurry to make a decision on his college choice. "I am planning to wait until next spring to sign," Durham says.

Asked what the best part of his game is, the guard says, "It has to be shooting. I like Stephen Curry a lot and I try to shoot like him."
