Harper Kamp, the 6-foot-8, 250-pound power forward from Mountain View High School in Mesa, Ariz., is hoping to make his return to the court this weekend. After missing all of the regular season games so far, Kamp, the three-star prospect, would love nothing more than to return during his teams tournament in Hawaii.
"The schools showing the most interest right now are Stanford, New Mexico, UNLV, Iowa, USC and Washington State," said Kamp. "Arizona was recruiting me early on, but I think they are going in a different direction. UCLA, BYU, Oregon and Oregon State are some of the other schools showing an interest in me. I have really enjoyed the recruiting process so far. I have tried to have fun with this and I am hoping to make the best decision possible in the future.
"Stanford, UCLA, Northwestern and Iowa were here earlier in the year to watch me practice," he added. "Nobody has been by lately because I have been out the last five weeks with a stress fracture in the fifth metatarsal of my right foot."
Being out of action during the last five weeks has been extremely difficult on Kamp. However, if he is cleared to play with his team this weekend, it would have been well worth the wait.
"My team is leaving for Hawaii on Friday to play in the Iolani Classic," said Kamp "I am still questionable right now, but I could possibly play during the tournament. I am going to meet with my doctor later today (Thursday) and hope to be cleared. I just want to try to play and help my team.
"If everything goes good with my doctor, I am hoping to play in Hawaii," he added. "I probably will not be able to play a lot of minutes, but I just want to get out on the court and help my team."
Harper Kamp Scouting Report: Limited athletically, Kamp relies on a heady and skilled approach to the game. Very good at using his body to get position, Kamp can score the ball with either hand around the basket. He also has a nice touch on his midrange jumper and passes the ball well out of the high post.- Jerry Meyer of Rivals.com
