Hoop Mountain Showcase

It's time again for the Hoop Mountain Showcase that includes many of the top scholastic basketball recruits in the area participating Saturday afternoon at Robert Morris University's Sewall Center in Moon Township, Pa.

Some 200 boys' basketball recruits primarily from the Pittsburgh area, as well as across the United States and Canada with skill work by college position at 3 p.m. The games begin at 4 p.m. and run until 8.

Some of the top prospects at the event include the trio of 7-foot-4 sophomore center Sim Bhullar, 6-9 sophomore forward Stefan Jankovic and 7-2 freshman center Tanveer Bhullar from Kiski School Saltsburg, Pa. Tanveer Bhullar already has been mentioned as the No. 1 player in the Class of 2013.

According to Hoop Mountain Pa., Hoop Mountain Basketball Camps and Recruiting Showcases for more than 20 years have given basketball players an opportunity to improve their skills, play against top competition from around the the world and be seen by hundreds of College Basketball Coaches and Basketball Scouting Services.

Hoop Mountain recruits top coaches from around the nation to coach at its camps. These include head and assistant college basketball coaches, top scholastic coaches and AAU coaches. These mentors all share a love for teaching the game and developing players. All the players will be pushed to improve their basketball skills and understanding of the game by these coaches.

Hoop Mountain maintains a great relationship with many college basketball coaches. Following each basketball camp and recruiting showcase, Hoop Mountain will send a detailed report on each player in the camp to every Division I, II and III head coach in the country as well as many assistants. These reports have helped thousands gain recruitment and earn scholarships.

Hoop Mountain National Exposure Basketball Camps and Recruiting Showcases are directed by Coach Daryn Freedman, Director of Hoop Mountain PA, who spent nine years as a Division-I Assistant at Massachusetts, Memphis, Northeastern and Duquesne universities, as well as four years working in the NBA with the New Jersey Nets and Philadelphia 76ers.

Admission into the event is $6 for adults and $3 for students and seniors. Children under 8 are free. Information for any players who are interested in participating can find it at www.hoopmountainpa.com or call 412-375-7420.
