EMERSON, Ga. – Pound for pound, there are not many in the 2018 class that have more potential than Cameron Reddish. A 6-foot-7 guard that can play practically every position on the floor outside of center, the Team Final star has taken his game to the next level this spring showing that he can put his team on his back while remaining just as efficient.
Reddish is a bit further along in the recruitment process compared to his elite peers in the 2018 class as he recently narrowed down his school list to eight: Duke, Kentucky, Villanova, Miami, Arizona, Maryland, UConn and UCLA.
The fight for the top-five junior will remain steady in the coming weeks as Reddish was able to identify some of the varying pitches thrown his way from those involved.
Duke: “Just to come in and be the man. Be the leader straight from the start with the right guys around me.”
Kentucky: “Obviously they want be to be a one-and-done. Just to come in and that they’re going to push me to be great.”
Villanova: “Hometown school; they just basically assume that I am going to be a one-and-done so why not stay home and be a one-and-done in front of all my family and friends.”
Finishing out his final summer with the Team Final 17-under team and as one of the faces of the Nike circuit, Reddish spoke on a timetable for his final list of schools and a commitment thereafter. “I am down to eight schools right now,” he said. “I will probably cut my list down to five after Peach Jam in July and take my five officials at the beginning of the school year and then commit before my high school season begins.”
While Reddish is down to a final list of eight, the prevailing thought is that Kentucky, Villanova and Duke stand the best shot with the Pennsylvania native with the Blue Devils entering the summer as the favorite.
