Superstar Camp Focus: Laval Lucas-Perry

SUWANEE, Ga. – Camp week is huge for a number of prospects. Laval Lucas-Perry, like many kids in the Class of 2007, has an opportunity to parlay a strong adidas Superstar Camp into even more college offers.

The writing is on the wall for Flint (Mich.) Powers combo guard Laval Lucas-Perry. He's going to play high-major basketball for who and where may be determined this week at the adidas Superstar Camp.

Last week, the 6-foot-2 quick penetrator shined at the Arizona Wildcats elite camp. How good was he? Well, Lute Olson personally offered him a scholarship based on his performance at camp. Lucas-Perry had played well this spring, but from the sounds of it, Arizona's camp was the high point of his summer.

"It was a great experience playing with the NBA players," the guard said. "The coaching staff was great and I loved it there."

Arizona joins Penn State, Wisconsin, Boston College and Dayton as programs that have offered him a scholarship. Michigan, Michigan State, Marquette and Indiana have not but that could change based solely off his efforts here at camp and Lucas-Perry knows it.

"I think a lot of folks are coming to evaluate me and probably make offers also," Lucas-Perry said. He knows it's big for him, basically a live audition with future implications. Still, he's not about to change his game or sweat it that much. Whatever happens, well he's going to be alright with it. Plus, he's already weighing some outstanding offers.

"(Colleges are) going to call me and they're going to talk to me about some stuff (after camp). It doesn't really matter; I'm going to keep on playing my game."

And if they all don't offer? "I'm alright if they don't. I'm going to keep on playing my game and play hard all the time."
