2022 Willie Wilson Offered By Florida

Minneapolis North and Grassroots Sizzle class of 2022 Willie Wilson received an offer from The University of Florida on Thursday. Wilson had a very productive spring and summer for Grassroots Sizzle and followed it up with a strong performance at our Larry Hughes Elite Camp a few weeks ago, which solidified the offer. 

“It feels good to receive an offer like this,” said Wilson. “I’m still putting in work though, so I’m not really satisfied!”

Wilson’s family are excited about the offer, but they know he can’t stop there. “They were happy for me, but they still expect more from me,” added Wilson. 

The Florida coaching staff is wasting no time to get in to see their newest offeree, showing how much of a priority he is going to be for them in the 2022 class. “Coach Mike White and Coach Al Pinkins are going to be in on September 10th to see me play.”

The Grassroots program has seen Florida come into Minnesota and offer quite a few kids in their program, but that’s nothing of concern to Wilson right now. “We cooling,” said Wilson regarding his teammates having the same interest from Florida. 

Florida isn’t the only school interested in the 2022 guard, and not the lone SEC school as well. According to his AAU director Brian Sandifer, Iowa, Iowa State, Illinois, and Vanderbilt are expected to be in at some point in the fall to see Wilson. 

As for what’s next? Well, that’s simple. It’s still fairly early in the recruiting process for Wilson, the two sport standout athlete as he’s currently focused on the football season at the moment. But that’s certainly not going to stop him from continuing to work on his game and earn more offers. 

“Just putting in more work.”

Press Release

August 2nd, 2019

RecruitLook Hoops will once again host the Larry Hughes Elite Camp on August 10-11, 2019 in St. Louis. This is an invite-only camp that will bring in some of the top high school basketball recruits from across the country. The two-day event will feature a mixture of 60 national recruits in the 2020, 2021, and 2022 recruiting classes – all getting the chance to learn from NBA-veteran and skills trainers.

NBA veteran, Larry Hughes, along with state-champion high school coach, Justin Tatum, will be the lead instructors for the Camp that will take place at Hughes’ brand-new facility.

Hughes has an impressive resume having played thirteen seasons at the highest level of professional basketball in the NBA. He was drafted by the 76ers in the 1st round (8th overall) of the 1998 NBA draft out of Saint Louis University, where he was named Freshman of the Year. Hughes was recognized as a versatile and athletic guard with strong defensive abilities, and was selected to the 2004-2005 All-Defensive 1st Team.

“Larry is passionate about spreading his basketball knowledge to the younger generation, which aligns with our vision and overall goal of RecruitLook Hoops,” says Mike Enright, Founder of RecruitLook. “It’s paramount that we have an influential partner like Larry to assist with the development of the next generation of basketball players.”

This camp will also feature wearable technology that is found in top-notch NBA facilities, including the RSPCT Basketball System to track shots, and the Kinexon’s sports technology cameras to measure player movement. All the data is tracked and logged into a digital locker, which will be shared to college coaches of all levels.

“We founded Larry Hughes Basketball Academy as well as our BTS (Basketball Training System) to develop athletes’ basketball abilities and basketball IQ — as well as their character and life skills,” says Larry Hughes, Founder of LHBA and BTS. “We share the same vision when it comes to assisting youth within the sport of basketball. We’re excited to build leaders on and off the court.”

The Larry Hughes Elite Camp provides athletes with an opportunity to showcase their skills against elite competition, while also learning more about the game of basketball and life-skills from special guests. In addition to the drill work and skills sessions the campers will receive, the camp will focus on teaching valuable lessons off the court.

The camp is not open to the public, only family members of the campers. Media requests need to be submitted to info@recruitlook.com.
