The past few months have been extremely difficult for Cameron Rundles. After breaking his shoulder during a football game, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound point guard from De Lasalle High School in Minneapolis, Minn., has yet to step on the basketball court this season. However, the No. 136 ranked player in the class of 2006 is planning to make his return in February.
"I have not had the opportunity to play yet this year because of my shoulder," Rundles said. "I actually broke my shoulder during a football game earlier in the year, so I have been out of action for a long time. My doctor says that I am two months ahead of where I should be, so I should be ready to play in February. The plan is to keep doing my rehab and just hope for the best."
It should come as no surprise that Rundles is having a hard time with this adjustment. To make matters worse, his team is currently 0-4 and just cannot find a way to get the job done without their star point guard.
Despite the fact that Rundles has been sidelined with an injury, several high major schools are still very much involved in his recruitment.
"I know that several schools are planning to come watch me play when I return in February," Rundles said. "Michigan State and Iowa have already talked to me and my coach about coming out when I do return. I also know that Creighton is coming out to watch us play this week.
"My coach is good friends with one of the coaches' at Creighton, so even through I am injured right now, they want to come watch us play," he added. "Several others schools have talked about coming to watch me play when I return, but Creighton, Michigan State and Iowa are probably the schools most interested in me right now."
