SLUH Basketball: 3 Impact Players

Nick Kramer | SLUH  | Class of 2022 | Wing

Kramer is a 3 level scorer who plays a physical style of basketball. He uses angles, explosiveness, and his strong frame to make scoring around the rim look easy. On the perimeter, his coach runs a variety of sets to get Kramer shots off curls and handoffs where his tough shot-making ability shines. Kramer doesn’t over-complicate the game and makes big scoring nights look routine. His consistency and production in every game are eye-opening. We see Kramer being a stock riser this summer with more exposure.  

Aaron Walker Jr. | SLUH | Class of 2023 | Point Guard

Walker Jr. is a guard who is starting to make a name for himself. At first glance, his speed and desire to push the ball when the opportunity arises stand out. He gets to the rim quickly, and when there are taller defenders to challenge, he uses outside hand finishes to protect the ball. Walker brings energy and quickness to the floor when it comes to collecting rebounds and getting steals as well. He averages over 3.5 steals per game where his anticipation and quick hands show. 

Jaden McClain | SLUH | Class of 2022 | Point Guard

McClain is a high IQ, pass-first point guard. He runs the offense with efficiency and takes care of the ball. He’s one of those point guards that is an extension of the coach. It’s rare to see McClain make the wrong read out of pick and roll or within the offense. Coach Erwin Claggett has obvious trust in his junior point guard and his game has developed nicely over time.

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
