ABCD: Henry Salter Talks about Recruitment

TEANECK, NJ -- Henry Salter of Gulfport, MS played well at the adidas ABCD Camp. Salter spoke with ITV while about his performance and recruitment.

6'4 Henry Salter is an athletic, small forward who thrives in transition and finishes well on the break.

Salter, who is regarded as one of the top five players in the state of Mississippi, spent several weeks in Louisville this summer playing against current UofL players at the SAC.

Salter hoped to open the eyes of college scouts this week and his performance certainly did nothing to hurt his stock. Salter showed he could score and rebound and even drained a few three pointers to prove he has range on the jumper.

"I started off real slow the first two games, but I think the next game I tried to do the little things that count as far as dunking, passing the ball well, getting my teamates the ball," Salter explained.

Salter explained what his hope was for this week.

"I'm looking for exposure and trying to be seen by a lot of coaches because I know they don't rural Mississippi," Salter said. "It's not really known to alot of people, where I'm from...so wherever I go I'm just trying to get exposure...I just play hard and play to the best of my ability."

Salter is receiving interest from several high major programs and listed West Virginia, Ole Miss, Mississippi St., Cincinnati and Virginia Tech as the schools who've shown the most interest to this point.

Salter said he currently has no offers and that Louisville has sent a few recruiting letters in recent weeks.

"Right now I'm just getting phone calls...Nobody's made an offer yet," Salter told us on Wednesday.

We'd heard in recent weeks that Salter may end up finishing high school in Louisville but Salter told us that he'll be back at Gulfport High School in the fall, largely because of his mother's wishes.

"My mom..she wants me to come back and finish my senior year in Mississippi," said Salter.
