Old Mill guard Camari Wilkerson has yet to see his recruitment take off just yet, but has seen some interest come in from three programs.
“Southern Connecticut State, Mount St. Mary’s, and Quinnipiac have been in contact with me; they’ve called and texted,” said the 5-foot-10 senior. “I have plans to visit Southern Connecticut State, they’ve been wanting me to come up, but I just need to find some time to fit that into my schedule.”
Wilkerson spent his spring and summer with two seperate area grassroots programs, starting with Mid-Atlantic Select, but ending with Maryland 3D.
“The roster on Mid-Atlantic Select had too many people, and Maryland 3D just played more people and I was able to get in more,” he said.
“I really worked on my off-hand and my shooting, and getting more assists and more shots.”
The 5-foot-10 prospect has spent most of his playing career as a point guard, but is also comfortable playing the off-guard. He described his playing style to PHM.
“I like to find my open shooters, and then once I get the shooters rolling I can get to the inside and get the post players involved. I’d say my passing and ball-handling are my best strengths,” said Wilkerson, who is getting set for his senior season with the Patriots.
“This year I’m going to start at the two so that I can get more shots up. I’m comfortable playing either guard position, but I do like to come off the screen and play offense that way. And I think we should be able to make it to regional championships, or even further.”
