One of the top uncommitted prospects in the Magnolia state, Vincent Camper from Oxford High School has an offer in hand from Tulane and is receiving serious interest from several high major programs.
“Tulane offered me a while back and I am hearing a lot from Fresno State, UCLA, Connecticut, Ole Miss, Florida State, and SMU,” he said. “Outside of Tulane, Fresno State is recruiting me the hardest and those two schools are my favorites.”
The Green Wave offered Camper, a 6-2, 190-pound point guard, this summer and have made a strong impression with their persistence.
“The whole Tulane staff has showed me a lot of attention. Sending me letters, calling when they can and showing up for my games,” Camper said. “I really like their style of play. The way they play up-tempo and push the ball. Also I think that I could play early for them which I wouldn’t mind.”
Camper, who is rated a 3-star prospect by RivalsHoops.com, originally hails from California and indicated that Fresno State was also in good shape for his signature.
“The new coach (Ray Lopes) at Fresno is a really nice guy and I like what he has to say,” he said. “Lately they have put some guys in the NBA and they like to run and gun which fits me perfectly.”
Camper, who spent the summer traveling with New Orleans Jazz AAU basketball squad, said that he is in no hurry to make a decision and plans to take his time.
“I might wait until the late period and concentrate on playing my best during my senior season and improving my stock,” Camper said. “But if the right offer comes along and I feel it is the best place for me I won’t hesitate to go ahead and get it over with.”
Camper, who last season averaged 17 points, nine assists, five rebounds per contest, carries a 3.2 GPA and 20 ACT score will be a full qualifier.
