After tearing his ACL injury last winter and subsequent surgery in March, Augusta guard Camryn Snapp is now back and ready to show college coaches he can be effective at the next level.
Snapp underwent surgery on March 5, and will be ready for the regular season which starts a week from today.
“I went to the doctor about three weeks ago, and he cleared me for everything,” said Snapp.
“When it comes to my recruitment, I know that coaches saw I tore my ACL, and I feel like they think I won't be the same. My motto is to come back even stronger, and I’m hoping that after I get some games in and the coaches see my stats and game film, they’ll see me staying positive and hopefully get some offers.”
Though he missed out on his entire 17U offseason, the talented guard – PHK’s 76th-ranked 2016 – has seen some plenty of interest come his way.
“I’ve actually had some from Asbury College, they have shown interest in me, I went and watched a game there last week. Also Shawnee State has shown interest, and Lindenwood in Missouri, also; Berea, Union, Lincoln Memorial, Transylvania, and Centre,” said Snapp.
“Right now Transylvania would be one showing me the most interest, Lindenwood too, and Asbury and Shawnee State too. They are all calling me and texting me, I talk to one of them every day.”
The 6-foot-2 guard explained his style of play to PHK.
“I’m not a true scorer, I’ll get up some points but there’s more than just scoring to me, I like getting my teammates involved and helping them score,” said Snapp. “I like rebounding. I’m pretty much an all-around player, and one of my favorite things to do is play defense. Getting steals or a five second call really pumps me up — defense is one of my passions.”
With the regular season starting a week from today, the senior guard says his rebounding and leadership will need to ramp up.
“This year won't be much different from last year for me. I think I’ll have to step up my rebounding more, and I’m hoping to average a double-double this year,” said Snapp. “And I’ll have to be a leader out there and help my guys stay calm and stay positive, and get those wins.
