Day 3 Brings College Offers for the Camp’s Top Talent

As scorching hot and humid outside conditions descend upon Reading, the display of talent at Albright College is heating up.

Despite legs starting to get tired from three long days of hoops,  day three of Elite session two showed just how much talent that these campers have to offer.

And Division 1 colleges made no mistake. They pounced on this talent, with multiple players adding to their tally of mid to high major offers.

First, it was the pair of standouts from Immaculate Conception in New Jersey. Two friends, both Jalen Carey and Justin Winston, received offers from Penn State.

Carey, a 6-foot-2 point guard, is lightning quick, can get to the rim at will, and plays with tremendous energy at both ends of the floor.Ranked  32nd on ESPN for 2018s, it’s no surprise that the rising junior has amassed 12 D-1 offers.

The third player to pick up a D-1 offer here on day three is New York big man Chris Efretuei. The 7-foot center received an offer from St. Bonaventure, making the Bonnies his 4th D-1 offer. Efretuei displayed his always improving post game, as well as his ability to dominate the glass with his long frame, in today’s three sets of games.

From the morning sessions all the way through the night, Efreteui was a standout, not just because of his height, but because of his ability to dominate both the paint and the glass.

“Being here has helped me a lot because I didn’t get much playing time this summer with EYBL, so coming to this camp has helped me show coaches what I can really do with scoring and rebounding,” the rising senior said.

Efretuei, who hails from the Park School of Buffalo, works every day to refine his raw talent. He’s always getting up shots, working on his post game, and lifting to get stronger on the block.

“I practice  my post moves every day, like a hook shot, a jump shot. Just basic simple moves, like a catch and shoot. It’s not hard, I just have to be devoted to it,” Efretuei said.

For many guys flying under the radar, or trying to improve their list of D-1 offers, this camp represents an opportunity. A chance in an open forum to earn a college scholarship and continue their basketball careers. And many, including Carey, Efretuei, and Winston, have seized these three days and added to their lists.

With one day left of camp, the players will have their final opportunity tomorrow to make a big impression college scouts and coaches.
