Julius Rollins Scouting Report

Julius Rollins is a 2021 wing from Hillcrest High School in Chicago. The athletic 6’6″ hooper holds 10+ division one offers with more schools checking in on him recently. Rollins is one that will attract significant attention from MM/HM programs this summer and into the high school season.

Name: Julius Rollins
Height: 6’6″
Position: Wing
High School: Hillcrest (Chicago)
AAU: Young & Reckless
GPA: 4.2
RLH 2021 IL Player Ranking: #11 overall in 2021 class
Offers at time of post: Toledo, Chicago State, North Carolina A&T, Oakland, Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Kent State, UIC, SEMO, LIU and others.

Strengths: Rollins skill-set is vastly underrated. He’s extremely versatile… he’s long… he’s athletic and strong… and he can play the #1-#4 spots. Rollins bounce and athleticism are tough for defenders as he can create mis-matches all over the court. His layup package is one of his biggest scoring threats…he can finish through traffic with contact, he can maneuver his body mid-air to avoid defenders, and he can just rise up and flush it with ferocious dunks. His passing and court vision are some of the best we’ve seen in his class for his size. It isn’t just on his dribble-penetration but also when he’s playing off the ball and flashing to empty spots — he makes quick decisions with ball-fakes and no-look passes to open defenders. Defenders tend to be on the lookout for his passing, which opens up his triple-threat or dribble-drive moves. Rollins is smart and knows how to take what the defensive is giving him. His length is another strong part of his game… his ability to snatch rebounds that most others can’t, his ability to pick the pocket of ball-handlers, and his ability to block shots are areas that he impacts that game with his length & athleticism.

Areas to improve: Rollins tends to get a bit right-hand dominant on his dribble. He likes to attack going right even when using the left to create separation. He can be more consistent on his jump shooting but he’s definitely a very capable scorer from the outside — we would just like to see him score more going to the Left or Right off screens/passes/dribble out on the perimeter.

2019 Larry Hughes Elite Camp Preview

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.
