Tony Neysmith joined Samardo Samuels and committed power forward Justin Burrell on the campus of St. John's as Norm Roberts' team completed its annual day camp. The Red Storm hosted a handful of prospects during the event.

The St. John's Red Storm accomplished a few things this week. Norm Roberts and the St. John's held their annual day camp brought back a few former players and a slew of prospects visited campus as well.

Tony Neysmith, whom the Red Storm has offered, was in town. Neysmith's father and AAU coach, has family in the area and tied in a trip while the camp was taking place.

" Yesterday was the last day," Horace Neysmith said. "They had the past players play against the current campers after camp. Felipe Lopez was there. It was pretty good."

Red Storm Commit Justin Burrell
Neysmith, a senior combo guard target, had company on campus. Justin Burrell, one of the nation's elite post grad players and a St. John's commitment, was on hand taking in the hoopla. He was joined by power forward Todd O'Brien and forward Tyrone Nash. Jeremy Hazell, a post grad guard who hails from New York, was in town.

The Red Storm also had underclassmen on campus. Top 10 prospect Semardo Samuels made another visit to headquarters. A day after camp ended, underclassman John Edwards made an unofficial visit and he was joined by senior target Malik Boothe, Christ The King's point guard.

The visit was a chance for Neysmith to see what St. John's has to offer. His father was impressed. "They offered Tony so they're extremely high on him. They're looking to bring another guy in. I've known Norm for many years. I think it's a good situation there and we're going to take a look at a few other schools. St. John's is definitely a good situation."

Neysmith will visit Oklahoma unofficially the final weekend in August and has offers from Mississippi, Virginia Tech and Charlotte.
