Double Pump: Kamaka Hepa
Given its extreme distance to the rest of the country, Barrow (Alaska) isn't a city you would usually travel to looking for prospects. The northernmost city in the United States, Barrow essentially requires a plane to get in and out of. You can expect that airport to receive a little extra traffic over the next couple of years because one of the city's less than 4,500 residents is going to be recruited at the high major level. Kamaka Hepa, a 6-foot-8, 205-pound power forward from Barrow High School, has good size and length and an unusually high feel for the game given the fact that he hasn't had the reps playing organized basketball as pretty much all of his peers. Hep, who plays AAU for Team 907, rebounds well, can hit the open jumper from midrange or three, plays hard and is an impressive passer. The rising sophomore listed five offers - Grand Canyon, Northern Colorado, New Mexico, San Francisco and Portland.
