Three U of L commits headed to LeBron camp

All three members of the University of Louisville's Class of 2014 recruiting class are expected to be in Las Vegas this weekend for the LeBron James Skills Academy. The event features the 80 top college basketball prospects in the country.

University of Louisville basketball commitment Quentin Snider is looking forward to spending some time with two future teammates this weekend.

"It should be fun for us to get to know each other better," Snider said.

Snider, Shaqquan Aaron and recent commitment JaQuan Lyle will all be in Las Vegas, competing in the LeBron James Skills Academy. The event is not open to college coaches but is always one of the top events of the summer.

The LeBron camp features the 80 top college basketball prospects in the country. The players will go through three days of intense skills sessions and competition on teams divided up before the camp.

"I'm looking forward to getting there and just competing against the best players from all over the country," said Snider, who also attended the NBA Players Association top 100 camp last month and was recently in the Deron Williams Point Guard Skills Academy camp.

The 6-foot-1 Snider is a senior at Ballard High School and has been committed to U of L since August of 2011, the first commitment in the '14 class.

The 6-8, 170-pound Aaron is ranked as the No. 36 player in the country and is from Seattle Rainer Beach. He committed to U of L last winter.

Lyle committed two weeks ago to the Cardinals. He's a 6-4, 170-pound guard from Evansville Bosse, who is ranked as the No. 12 player in the country.

A bunch of other U of L targets in '14 and '15 will be competing in the LeBron camp. An official roster of those participating will be released on Saturday.
