Summer Camp Open Thread

Nike Camps

Several Michigan recruits and players will be in action at various Nike camps over the next few weeks. These Nike camps feature college and high school players and are broken down into different mini camps before the final LeBron James camp.

The Deron Williams and Vince Carter camps kick off this week. Country Day point guard, and Michigan class of 2010 recruiting target, Ray McCallum will be playing in the Deron Williams event. DeShawn Sims will be playing in the Vince Carter event as well as 2010 commitment Evan Smotrycz and target Casey Prather. These camps will run June 23-26th, full rosters can be found here.

Michigan Elite Camp

The bad news regarding Michigan prospects playing in the Nike camps is that Michigan’s elite camp tips off this week as well. Because of the overlap, guys like Smotrycz and Prather won’t be in Ann Arbor for the Elite Camp.

There are still expected to be a number of prospects in attendance. I don’t have a full list of players that are expected to attend but here are a few names that have been linked to the camp.

  • Brandan Kearney  (2011) – (USA Links: Freep, Det News)
  • Trey Zeigler (2010)
  • Tim Hardaway Jr. (2010)
  • Spencer Turner (2011) – camp & visit
  • Allen Payne (2010)
  • Dwaun Anderson (2011, Suttons Bay)
  • Sean Sheldon (TC St. Francis)

This is such a big event because this event is also a chance for relatively unknown prospects to burst onto the radar. Stu Douglass was an anonymous guard from Indiana before he shot the lights out at Michigan’s Elite Camp, by the end of the summer he had committed.

I’ll leave this open for camp discussion, and hopefully get some updates over the next couple days.
