Local big man Zach Cameron-Chodes was the first commitment of the 2015 class for Paul Lusk and Missouri State. The Springfield (MO.) Parkview High prospect signed with Missouri State this month.

Cameron-Chodes hopped on board with Missouri State this summer and signed with the Bears this November. As a junior he averaged 11 points, seven rebounds and three blocks per game.

“He plays above the rim and is a very aggressive player,” Lusk said of Cameron-Chodes. “He has great length and protects the rim. We really like his upside, and his willingness to work and compete will pay huge dividends for us in the future.”

Paul Lusk and his staff sold Cameron-Chodes on the Bears’ program.

“The coaching staff (stood out), definitely. They have been telling me the last couple of years that if I work hard enough, things will pan out for me. I truly believe that as a part of their program I can accomplish great things,” Cameron-Chodes told Scout.
