Baskerville Recovers From Injury

It's been a long road back for Cameron Baskerville, but the wing from Georgia is fully healed and focused on winning a state title.

Cameron Baskerville is finally healthy.

The 6-foot-6 wing tore his ACL last year and was forced to the sidelines for the entire summer. After going through rehab and spending hours in the gym, he's back to 100-percent.

"It was pretty rough," Baskerville said. "It was a lot of work and a lot of pain. When I put forth the work a lot of good things came out of it. I've gotten my jumping ability back, I can cut and I can do things that I used to do before the injury."

With Baskerville healthy Atlanta (Ga.) Whitefield Academy has had a solid season and is looking to finish strong. The Wolfpack just finished their conference schedule and went undefeated in the league for the second consecutive year.

"Everybody is on the same age and everybody is playing together and now we are looking for a state championship and a regional championship," Baskerville said.

"Personally I have played consistent and most of all I think I've just given it up for my team"

College coaches have taken notice of his play recently as well. Baskerville currently claims interest from Clemson, Auburn, Oklahoma, Cincinnati, Tennessee, Kentucky, South Alabama, Toledo and Georgia State.

"Clemson is number one on the list," the talented junior said.

Of the schools showing interest only South Alabama, Toledo and Georgia State have offered scholarships.
