Upstate Freshman Guard Shows Skills

Reporter Mike Sullivan has an update on a freshman guard from CBA ...

The talent is young and deep in the Albany City Rocks AAU basketball program. So Rocks program director Jim Hart realizes it's smart to bring the freshman team along slowly. Two weekends ago, Hart saw some impressive performances.

"The 15 and under team won the Boo Williams tournament," Hart said. "They were really only challenged once during the event. They blew out most of the opponents."

Hart was particularly impressed with freshman guard Kameron Ritter, a 6-foot-3, 160-pound floor general from Christian Brothers Academy in Albany, New York.

"He reminds me of being the type of guard like Andre Miller," Hart said. "He takes care of the basketball well, looks to pass first, shoot second.

"He's also very strong for his age. He can go and dunk the ball too. I like the way he moves the ball around the perimeter."

Ritter was a big reason why the Rocks claimed the 15 and under title, according to Hart. "He loves to play the game," Hart said. "He is also a great defender. He moves his feet well side to side and stays in front of his opponent."

It's certainly early in the recruiting process for Ritter. However, Hart believes over the next 12-18 months, Ritter will start to see some serious recruiting interest.

"It's only a matter of time before schools start watching him more seriously," Hart stated. "Kameron plays hard and looks to get his teammates involved."
