Cameron talks process

With a visit to NC State on Friday, Reggie Cameron breaks down his recruitment and where things stand.

Four-star power forward Reggie Cameron is one of the best pure shooters in the class. The 6-foot-7 forward was absolutely on fire during the EYBL and helped his Playaz Basketball Club team reach the Peach Jam. Now he is starting to get serious about his recruiting.

"I thought the whole AAU season went pretty well for me," said Cameron. "My recruiting picked up a lot over the summer and during the spring."

He continued, "I felt good as soon as my sophomore year finished. I got into a lot better shape, and I just was able to move up and down the court better and do a lot of different things. I had a good junior year, and it just continued this AAU season."

Recruiting wise it is a long list of schools that are after Cameron.

"North Carolina State, West Virginia, Florida, Miami, Oklahoma State, North Carolina, Indiana, USC, Cincinnati, Seton Hall, Richmond, Michigan, and some others," he noted.

While many of those schools made him a priority during July, Cameron did say he noticed a few of them in particular watching him quite a bit.

"Since the summer started I noticed Michigan, Connecticut, North Carolina State, Indiana, and a bunch of others," said Cameron.

Cameron's only scheduled visit is to NC State, and he says the Wolfpack have done a good job to this point in their recruitment of him.

"I talk to Coach (Rob) Moxley and Coach (Mark) Gottfried a few times per week," Cameron said. "They make sure to talk to me and we are trying to set up a visit."

Also recently to jump in was Indiana. The Hoosiers came forward with an offer, and it is one that means something to him.

"I was excited. Indiana basketball, that is what Indiana is about," Cameron explained. "My friend Stan Robinson from Team Takeover is going there. It was just real exciting to get that offer."

Another Big Ten school, Michigan, has also been very active in recruiting Cameron, and like what they see from him as a stretch forward.

"Coach (John) Beilein is a great coach and Coach (Bacari) Alexander calls me all the time," Cameron explained. "Coach Beilein has known my high school coach for a while because he recruited Da'Sean Butler. They seem like good people."

Cameron doesn't have a time table in place for a decision, but he does know what he is looking for in a school.

"I am just looking for somewhere I can get a lot of wins because I hate losing, where I can develop as a player, and also a place I can get a great education," he explained.
