Nike Pre Draft Jumped Off Today!

The Nike Pre Draft Camp kicked off today at Life Center Academy in Burlington, NJ. This camp was strictly about working on the fundamentals and skill development. Basketball Spotlight was in the building and we got some of the participant’s input on this camp.

Jason Applegate Guard (Columbus, NJ)
“I think the camp was excellent because they gave us good skill work but also gave us a good education. The information they gave us was very important for elite ball players.”

Tyus Battle Guard (Edison, NJ)
“The camp gave us a chance to show off your basketball skills. I think skill development is always very important. It was a great experience.”

Tuva “Buttah” Mott (Philadelphia, PA)
“This camp was a great source for skill development. I really needed to work on my basketball IQ and they gave me some information that should help go a long way.”

Jake Klores (New York, NY)
“It was different from other exposure events because the focus was really about development and doing drills. The coaches really pushed us and kept us focused on what they were trying to teach us.”

Danielle Tunstall (Willingboro, NJ)
“It was kind of weird being the only girl at this camp I adjusted. The drills taught us different skills that I will take with me for my future.”

Manny Taylor (Philadelphia, PA)
“The camp is new and exciting. It helped me pick up some new skills. I will definitely leave this camp with some new tools.”

Kwame Camon (Alexandria, VA)
“The camp taught me some new stuff. When I go back to my AAU team I will be taking some new skills with me.”

Evan Myers (Rockville, MD)
“I loved the level of intensity. The coaches really pushed you to strive for your best. I loved the instruction and the coaches.”
