By ADAM ZAGORIAKamari Lands, the 6-foot-8 four-star small forward from Hillcrest Prep (AZ), has two visits coming up in December.
Lands, who decommitted from Syracuse in August, will visit Arizona State and Memphis.
Lands transferred to Hillcrest Prep (AZ) over the summer after previously playing at national powers Prolific Prep (CA) and La Lumiere (IN).
“Kamari has HUGE upside,” said Hillcrest Prep coach Nick Weaver. “He’s a legit 6’8 with a 6’11 1/2 wingspan. He can really shot the 3 and also is an outstanding rebounder. In our up tempo offense Kamari Lands will thrive! He just hasn’t been in the right system the past few years. He has all the tools to be a very good NBA player.”
Lands was offered by the Overtime Elite league but said he turned them down to focus on the college path.
“Yeah, I did,” he said by text.
