There has been a lot of uncertainty when it comes to high school athletics due to the corona epidemic. Places like California, Nevada, Washington, and Oregon have been hit extremely hard on the west coast. Many School district’s in these areas have decided to forgo winter sports.
As we continue to survey the landscape of high school basketball, we have made it a point not to follow the norm. Being in the gym is the only way to become familiar with players from around the country. Don’t get me wrong live streams are fine; but being in person is even better!
Georgia was our first stop on our Tour of the southeast region. Holiday HoopsGiving was loaded with talent. I am quite sure players on the West Coast are not familiar with players in the southeast region.
2022 6’7 215 pound forward, Kendall Campbell of Norcross, Georgia was a player that stood out! Campbell shot 66% from the field in the 2 day tournament. Campbell showed that he has the ability to rebound among the trees. He has a strong body frame.
Campbell has good hand and eye coordination. He has a very active motor and can be disruptive on the defensive side! I was Impressed with his ability to get out in transition and run the floor. Anything around the rim, he can be very explosive off the bounce. Campbell showed flashes of having the ability to face up and knock down the mid range shot.
A good two-way player that has the ability to operate at a high-level. 247 sports has Kendall Nationally rank as the 126 player in the class of 2022. There is a lot to like about Kendall Campbell. If he continues to play at the current level; there will definitely be uptick in his recruitment.
At the current moment Kendall is being recruited by Georgia, Georgia Tech, Alabama, UAB, Rice, and Mercer, just to name a few.
