Pure Sweat All-Access Camp Standouts

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Luke Cooper’s All-Access Camp was this weekend, which was free for any high school basketball player in the area that wished to participate. Cooper, a Pure Sweat basketball trainer, took them through a number of individual drills, helping them add to their arsenal of already expanding basketball moves. They had Top Speed Sports on hand to run the players through a variety of basketball combine testing as well. Whilst it was a learning experience for some, they got the feel for live-game action as well. We were on hand to catch the camp and take notice of a few players who stood out during the live-game action. 

2022 Trevor McBride/Basehor-Linwood High School

McBride has an innate feel for the game from the guard spot and is a natural scorer. He’s improving as a facilitator, and you could see as much on Saturday at the All-Access Camp. What impresses me the most about McBride is he’s always active on defense, having quick hands, and becoming a lockdown defender. 

2022 Kortez Stevenson/Center High School

Stevenson was arguably the most impressive player from both sessions on Saturday morning. Stevenson is physically imposing, with a strong build that he uses well in the post on both ends. His footwork was simply amazing on Saturday, not too many players like him have the footwork in the post that he does. Stevenson has a nice touch from the midrange that can eventually lead to developing a consistent three-point shot. Stevenson’s team went through him every time on their offensive possessions and there was very little the other team could do. A developing talent who is only going to get better. 

2022 Mozae Downing/Lawrence Free State

The lone 2022 player to play up with Juniors & Seniors, Downing showed why he should be considered one of the top players in the state in the class of 2022. Downing continued to show his elite court vision and willingness to get teammates involved, even in a camp setting like this. Downing has the ability to take over games with his scoring prowess. 

Isaiah Jackson 2020/William Chrisman

A hidden gem in the Kansas City area, Jackson is a certified bucket getter who is only getting better. Jackson is a crafty guard, who can pick his spot on the floor and get things going in a hurry. Jackson displayed it all on Saturday at the All-Access Camp. Jackson is improving as a floor general, which will be huge as a veteran for his William Chrisman squad looking to get back to the state tournament. 

Dalton Gayman 2020/Nevada High School

Gayman tested extremely well according to some trainers at the camp. The Arkansas Fort Smith commit is an absolute steal for them the more I continue to watch him. Watching him in the spring verse watching him on Saturday, he has vastly improved on every aspect of his game and gotten faster and stronger as well. Gayman scored at all three levels on Saturday morning, showing his playmaking ability.

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.
