Top 2012 Hoops Prospect Thinking Tigers

Talented elite camp prospect speaks about Missouri and interest in Tigers

After he returned home from Missouri's Elite Camp last weekend, 2012 G Cameron Biedscheid 6'6" 180 St. Louis (MO) Cardinal Ritter took some time to visit with ShowMeMizzou regarding his camp experience and recruitment.

"It was a good camp," said Biedscheid. "I had fun up there. I had a nice time. The atmosphere was nice. I feel like Mizzou is a good school, and it's close to home. I had fun there. I feel comfortable at Mizzou."

Biedscheid is awaiting the first of what will be many offers, and is being recruited by a number of schools, including Cincinnati, Duke, Notre Dame, UCLA, California, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Oregon State, and Missouri, among others.

"Considering the fact that it's in my home town, and it wouldn't be hard for my family and friends to get to the games," said Biedscheid about his interest in Missouri. "It's convenient for me, and everybody. It's a good program. It's a Nike school, and it's in the Big 12. You'd play against a lot of tough teams. I'm a competitive person, so of course, I'd like playing against those top players on the D-1 level. I definitely wouldn't have a problem going to Mizzou."

Biedscheid is playing on the St. Louis Eagles 16's this summer. He said that his dad taught him the fundamentals of shooting, and that he now works with a shooting coach to perfect his shooting mechanics.

Biedscheid describes himself as a "skilled combo guard who can handle the ball, has deep range, and can get to the basket with either hand."

He likes to shoot from along the baseline, and around the elbows, and from anywhere behind the arc. He's quick and athletic, and gets to the FT line a lot, where he makes over 80%. He averaged 18.7 points and over 8 rebounds per game as a sophomore.

Biedscheid expects to receive a Missouri offer before too long, and plans to sign with his chosen school in the fall of 2011, during his senior season.
