Damion Byrd shines for Silverado High School

Damion Byrd (2022/PG/Silverado HS/Las Vegas) attended the 2019 Larry Hughes Elite. We got to see him compete against nationally ranked players that were older than him — and he held his own. In fact, he even outplayed some of the more highly sought after recruits.

We liked his ability to compete. It was an intense and competitive setting: NBA alum working camp… all the data being tracked and sent to coaches… nationally ranked upperclassmen in attendance… the level of energy was high-level.

Damion didn’t back down. He didn’t try to blend in. He didn’t shy away from the competition at the Larry Hughes Elite Camp, and that confidence he established there is carrying over to his sophomore season at Silverado High School.

Damion is now getting good run for his high school team at the point guard position. He is one of the best table-setting guards we’ve seen in his class. His tight handles…ability to change direction without losing speed…his overall speed with the basketball is elite level…and his passing abilities are off the charts.

Damion is a solid finisher at the rim for his size. With continued work on his mid-range and three point shooting, he should develop into a solid college level prospect.

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
