There’s no way to deny it. Colorado hoops has risen in recent years.
And, the current upswing looks to continue. The 2016, 2017, and 2018 classes could produce record numbers of Division I recruits and the depth of talent beyond the D-I level prospects has increased.
While the latest group is extremely promising, it is time to give credit to those who played high school hoops in Colorado and are still competing at some level to this day. They’ve helped set the stage for the ongoing success of Centennial State basketball.
Without further ado, here’s Prep Hoops Colorado’s first Where Are They Now article in an ongoing series.
Josh Perkins: The electric playmaker broke his jaw after a promising start to his true freshman campaign at Gonzaga, but received a medical redshirt from the NCAA this week. Perkins, now a redshirt freshman and a former Regis Jesuit talent, represents the future of the Bulldogs’ program at point guard.
Reggie Jackson: The Detroit Piston guard signed a 5-year, $80 million contract last month after averaging 17.6 points, 9.2 assists, and 4.7 rebounds in 27 games for the Pistons a season ago. The Palmer product could be an All-Star level talent soon.
Josh Scott: The 6-foot-10 big man, an all-time great in Colorado hoops while at Lewis-Palmer, is one of the better forwards in America with his skilled, crafty, and efficient game and could have NBA potential after he graduates from Colorado.
Cameron Michael: The Northern Colorado guard, a transfer from Air Force and a Loveland High School grad, blossomed as a sophomore as he excelled as a three-point marksman while shooting 39.3 percent from downtown and averaging 12.9 points per game.
Josh Adams: The former Chaparral guard has earned a reputation for the Wyoming Cowboys as one of the most explosive athletes in the nation and he helped lead his team to the Mountain West tournament title as a junior. Adams could have NBA potential, as well.
Eric Garcia: A dynamic player for the Grandview Wolves a few years ago, Garcia has been a solid starter for a Wofford program that has earned an NCAA Tournament bid each of the last two seasons. The guard averaged 7.7 points as a sophomore and is known for his poise.
