High-majors in pursuit of big shot-maker John Camden

The game of basketball will evolve in the way it is played. We’ve seen it happen in the past decade as the three-point shot has become a bigger presence in the game. 

So, college coaches are always looking for guys who can knock down the long ball. With the three-point line moving back to international basketball distance of 22 feet, 1 ¾ inches, programs are adjusting to the move. Shooters are at a premium. 

Enter John Camden. The 6-foot-8 junior from Archbishop Carroll (PA) is a hard player to guard because of his ability to knock down the long ball and stretch the defense. His shot-making ability is drawing in a number of schools. 

Camden holds offers from Virginia Tech, Florida, Temple, Miami, Syracuse, Xavier and Penn State. Virginia Tech and Temple were at his game during the Pete and Jameer Nelson Classic at Thomas Jefferson University after Christmas. Memphis and Ohio State are also interested, Camden said. 

While shooting is his bread and butter, Camden is a skilled passer and a player who can push the tempo. He’s a mismatch on the court and valuable on so many spots on the floor. 

Camden is a top 125 player nationally in the composite rankings. He plays with Team Final on the Nike EYBL circuit.
