Aussie guard, Cameron Healy, adding interest

2017 Australian guard Cameron Healy is starting to garner college interest. The 6-2 guard played with AUSA Platinum the past two weekends and proved himself as a talented combo guard.

Jacob Epperson seemed to be the rage among college coaches during the second evaluation period, but his AUSA Platinum teammate Cameron Healy is starting to garner attention as well.

A 6-foot-2 guard, Healy is a hard-playing, aggressive prospect that showed a good mix of scoring and facilitating during a pair of games at the NY2LA Summer Jam this past weekend.

“When I’m at my best I’m finding my spots on the floor,” Healy said. “I’m aggressive. I’m driving, whether I’m kicking to open shooters or finding big man or getting points in the paint.”

“When I can get into the middle of defense and make plays, that’s when I’m at my best,” he added.

Healy said he’s grown up playing on the ball, but is starting to become more of a scorer.

“Combo guard, I can play both,” he said when asked which position he wants to play. “I think as I transition to America I’ll become more of a shooting guard, but I’ve grown up my whole life playing point guard.

A native of Australia, Healy will play at Montverde in the United States this coming season.

College coaches have begun to show interest in Healy. Cal Poly has offered, while Stanford, Columbia, Princeton, Denver and Pepperdine are recruiting him.

“It’s good,” he said of his recruitment. “I’ve talked to a lot of schools and some have come to watch, but I only have that one offer.”
