Caldwell holds three offers

Scout.com caught up with J.J. Caldwell, who had a strong sophomore season, at the NBPA Top 100 Camp to get an update on his game and recruitment.

Junior point guard J.J. Caldwell had a solid sophomore season averaging 12 points, 10.4 and 6.4 rebounds a game, while leading Cypress (Tex.) Woods to a 27-6 record and to the fourth round of the playoffs.

"I averaged a double-double," Caldwell said about his season. "Most of my teammates were shooters so it was easy just getting them the ball."

A 5-foot-11, 175-pounder, Caldwell says he's a pass first guard that plays hard on both ends of the floor.

"Getting my teammates involved, getting to the basket, getting fouled and playing hard nosed defense," Caldwell said when asked to describe his game.

Caldwell, who plays AAU ball with the Houston Defenders, said the next step in his development is to work on his jump.

At the NBPA Top 100 Camp last week, where Caldwell tossed out 18 total assists and averaged 3.9 points per game, told Scout.com that he currently has scholarship offers form Tulsa, Houston and Kansas State.

"The three schools that are sticking out to me are Arizona, Kansas State and Oklahoma," Caldwell told Scout.com.

"They said they wanted a point guard," Caldwell said about Arizona. "They have good point guards that have been there. I want to go there. That's my number one."

"They came and visited me at school one time and they asked me how I like it," he said about Oklahoma. "They said I needed to start shooting more and getting more shots up during the game."

"Kansas State has offered," he added. "That was my first offer. That was really big. They told me they want me to come visit them."

The only school Caldwell has visited to date is Houston. He also claims interest from Mississippi State, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Texas and Fresno State.
