At 6-foot-8, Looney is one of the best and most versatile forwards in the class. The No. 14 ranked prospect has proven himself at all the top events, and now at the NBPA Camp says he is learning a lot about life going forward.
"It is a great opportunity to meet a lot of former NBA players," said Looney. "They are great coaches who teach you a lot. You learn life lessons, off the court pressures, and how you have to make decisions. It is a great camp."
Overall Looney likes the way he has been playing so far this spring and summer.
"I have been playing pretty well," explained Looney. "I have been working hard to improve in all parts of my game. I am just continuing to try and get better."
Recruiting wise it is no surprise that his school list continues to grow with more high level schools calling.
The Marquette Golden Eagles have done a great job recently of keeping Milwaukee kids home for college, and they are hoping to do the same with Looney.
"They have been recruiting me real hard, but staying home isn't a big issue to me," said Looney of Marquette. "Whatever school I like the best is where I will go. Marquette has done a great job of recruiting me though."
Also the Michigan Wolverines have begun to pick things up with him on the recruiting front.
"Michigan was really calling my coach during the open period," Looney noted. "They have some good recruits like Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson coming in, and I know they have a great team returning."
At this point Looney hasn't scheduled any visits for later on, but he hopes to sit down with his family soon and discuss maybe seeing schools and narrowing down his list.
"I haven't sat down with my parents yet to talk about it, but after July I will probably begin thinking about what I want to do," said Looney.
