  • Stewart, Cameron to Hudson Catholic (UPDATED)

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Kavon Stewart and Reggie Cameron were two of the rising stars on a Paterson Catholic team that went undefeated through much of the high school season and peaked at No. 3 in the nation.

    With Paterson Catholic closing this month, both players have elected to attend Hudson Catholic beginning next year, where they will play for Nick Mariniello, one of the top coaches in the Garden State.

    “That’s where I’m going,” the 5-10 Stewart, pictured above, told ZAGSBLOG contributor Alex Kline.

    Asked if the 6-4 Cameron was coming with him, Stewart said, “Yes.”

    Mariniello said Stewart was currently playing with Hudson Catholic in various summer events and will be attending in the fall.

    “Obviously, it’s unfortunate what happened at Paterson Catholic and I know he’s very attached to the school,” said Mariniello, whose team finished 12-12 in the coach’s first season last year. “Hopefully we can provide a stable situation for him from an academic, basketball and social environment.”

    Stewart said he enjoyed Hudson Catholic on his visit there.

    “When I went there on my visit they were treating me good. I’m very cool with the coaching staff. I think we will be good in a few years,” he said.

    Jersey City will now feature four of the top players from Paterson Catholic.

    Rising senior point guard Myles Mack and rising junior guard Kyle Anderson both opted to attend St. Anthony and suit up for Hall of Fame coach Bob Hurley.

    The schools do not meet during during the regular season and are in different state tournament brackets.

    In addition to the moves of Mack, Anderson and Stewart, several other Garden State guards have been on the move this offseason.

    Myck Kabongo, a Canadian, left St. Benedict’s Prep for Findlay Prep.

    Vaughn Gray departed Don Bosco for St. Benedict’s.

    And Tyrone Johnson of Plainfield is considering attending Montrose Christian.
