Iroegbu has big Reebok Camp

PHILADELPHIA -- Ikenna Iroegbu had it working on Thursday at the Reebok Breakout Camp. Using his tremendous athleticism, speed and newly developed mid-range game, Iroegbu dominated at times.

The Reebok Breakout Camp was built around John Wall's story and his rise to stardom during a Reebok Camp a few years back.

While Ikenna Iroegbu was already an established name on the recruiting circuit, he had hit a rough patch this past year on the court.

During his junior season at Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill, Iroegbu barely found his way to the court. He sat behind North Carolina State lead guard Tyler Lewis and didn't get a ton of minutes.

However, that experience at Oak Hill helped Iroegbu.

"I feel like I've become a smarter point guard playing behind Tyler [Lewis] and how good he is at the point guard position helped me a lot," Iroegbu said after a great outing during the second day of camp.

Despite not getting much playing time as a junior Iroegbu, a 6-foot lead guard, said he never lost confidence in his ability.

"I knew I was getting better," Iroegbu told "With six seniors going D-1, I wasn't worried about that. I knew I was getting better and I knew I was putting in work in the gym."

What has he improved the most?

"My mid-range game," Iroegbu said. "Last year I was either shooting threes or going to the basket, but right now I'm shooting more mid-range pull-ups."

In an evening game on day two of camp, Iroegbu showed off that mid-range game, nailing a trio of pull-ups from 15 to 18-feet. He also made plays in transition and had a few impressive finishes at the rim.

"It feels great to just come out here and show people what I've improved on during my time at Oak Hill," Iroegbu said following one of his camp games. "I'm just trying to win games out here really."

Iroegbu said he currently holds scholarship offers from USC, Washington State, Oklahoma State, Colorado, Virginia Tech and College of Charleston. He also mentioned that California, UNLV, Stanford and UCLA are recruiting him.

"It's real mutual with all the schools right now," Iroegbu said.

Following the Fab 48, where Iroegbu will play with Dinos Trigonis' Belmont Shore team, Iroegbu is planning to take some visits. He said he wants to sign during the early period.
