INDIANAPOLIS — Maybe no player at this weekend’s EYBL Session 2 is playing his cards closer to his vest than Cameron Reddish. The 6-foot-7 combo guard standout plans on taking all of his visits, but he won’t say much about the leaders for his services.
“Nice. That’s all you’re getting out of me,” Reddish said.
How about Arizona?
Besides Kentucky and Arizona, Reddish says the schools consistently contacting him are Villanova, UConn, Duke and Syracuse among others.
He’ll tell you that they’re all “nice.”
Reddish “is hearing a lot from Villanova, Kentucky, Duke and UConn,” Team Final coach Aaron Burt said on The 4 Quarters Podcast. “He has to continue to grow as a player, but he has a terrific skillset.”
INDIANAPOLIS — One of the top-ranked players in the 2018 class, New Jersey’s Louis King had 19 points and 10 rebounds in front of Kentucky coach John Calipari at the EYBL Session 2 in Indianapolis, then talked about UK and his other suitors.
King, a 6-foot-6 wing who plays for Hudson Catholic in New Jersey, mentioned this weekend he’s hearing a lot from Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, Oregon, UCLA, Syracuse and Indiana.
King said has talked a lot with Kentucky assistant Joel Justus and said, “I know they get guys to The League. They had Isaiah Briscoe and Malik Monk and a lot of great players in that program. So going to that program is like a privilege.”
INDIANAPOLIS — Athletic wing Nahziah Carter is taking his time.
After the former Dayton signee reopened his recruitment when Archie Miller left for Indiana, Carter has relished the second chance to go through the process and keep his options open. He is now in the Class of 2018 although he’s qualified for 2017, City Rocks coach Jim Hart said.
“I’ve gotten way more interest. I feel my game speaks for itself,” Carter said.
St. John’s, Georgetown, N.C. State, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Penn State and UMass have all offered.
Carter will visit Georgetown Saturday-Sunday but cancelled a visit to St. John’s set for Sunday night-Monday.
