Demetri McCamey, of St. Joseph HS (IL), really has his high school team on a roll. The 6-foot-4 point guard has led them to a 16-1 record by averaging 15 points and 7 assists.
But the stat McCamey is most fond of is his four steals. The 14th ranked point guard in the 2007 class has picked up his defense and is really becoming a terror for opposing point guards.
"That was one of the knocks on me," McCamey said about his defense. "That I didn't play hard on the defense end so I've picked it up this year."
But like most point guards, what McCamey does best is get the whole team involved throughout the game.
"I like to share the ball because I think if you share the ball everyone plays equal," he said. "I like to pass first and I can also score. I just like to get my teammates involved."
There are quite a few schools that are trying to get involved with McCamey. He said the schools recruiting him the hardest are Illinois, Kentucky, Wake Forest, Clemson, Virginia, Michigan State, Michigan, Purdue, UConn and Miami.
He also claims offers from Michigan State, Purdue, DePaul and Wake Forest. And he has even taken a few visits. Notre Dame, Illinois and Michigan State have all received unofficials from McCamey.
