That's exactly what William Archambault did.
The 6-foot-6, 210-pound senior swingman, who led John Dangelas' squad in scoring each game at the Kentucky Hoop Fest, already has a handful of offers – and will likely be the go-to guy for this year's Champlain St. Lambert edition.
``He went to the tournament in Kentucky and lit it up," Dangelas said. "He didn't get invited to any of the shoe camps, but he's still getting plenty of looks."
``He's an outstanding shooter," added Dangelas. "Lights out with great size."
But Archambault, who averaged 10 points and six rebounds per game last season, has become more than just a one-dimensional guy who stands on the perimeter and launches trifectas.
``I'm a lot tougher physically than I was last year," said Archambault, who attributes some of his added toughness to his recent interest in kickboxing. "I like for contact more and crash the boards – and I have a better outlook towards my teammates."
The 18-year-old Archambault spent two years at C.P.E.Q. before being courted by Dangelas and his staff.
``Coach D (Dangelas) came to my house the first day he was allowed to recruit me and told mw how much he wanted me," Archambault said. "He brought his whole staff and a month later, I committed. It's the right place for me. Going to college in the states is what I always wanted and he prepares his players for that and gives them that opportunity."
Archambault, who has a 85 average and scored an 1160 on the SAT, said that Davidson and Rice are his co-leaders. He plans to take an unofficial to Davidson in a couple weeks and he may also stop in and check out Richmond. West Virginia is also in the mix and Archambault may also take an unofficial trip to Morgantown.
``I'll take official visits in September," he said. "The biggest thing for me is the academic level of the school and the level that the program is on. I also want to see if they send guys to Europe and the NBA."
