Thursday night marked the start of the DeMatha Summer League presented by Capitol Hoops and one of the standouts from the opening night was 2019 6’5 shooting guard, Cameron Brown, of Eleanor Roosevelt. He scored a game high 17 points in a win over WCAC foe, St. Mary’s Ryken. Brown can score at all three levels and does a good job of getting to the basket. Tonight he was 3/4 from three point range and shot it well from mid range too. He plays good defense and mentioned “he wants to be the guy to guard the best guy on the opposing team.”

The rising senior is playing AAU with District Basketball Club and he spoke on how his spring has gone thus far, “It is going real good, AAU started in March and we had a good April. The first and second live period and a few games and tournaments we played in May, all went good. We have just been putting work in together and we have been working out with our high school teams probably like two weeks after the season ended so we are all just trying to get better.”

He is really looking forward to the competition he and his teammates will be facing in summer league, “I really want to see where we stack up against the best in the DMV. We just want to see where we are and try to play good competition and work on what we need to do to get better.”

There are a number of schools recruiting Brown, “I am hearing from a lot of schools in the CAA, I am hearing a lot from Coppin StateTemple and VCU.”

Coppin State is close by and he broke down what they are telling him, “They are telling me they like me as a player and they like me as a big guard and that is what basketball is coming to.”

Temple is another school that likes Brown as a big guard, “Same thing, they see me as a big guard, they tell me that I can stretch the floor well and that I could play multiple positions on the court and just get out in transition.”

VCU is another school that is close by to Brown and his family, “I am going to probably get up there in June so I will see how I like the campus up there and they are just telling me the same thing. I have a good relationship with the coaches up there so I like it.”

When asked when he would like to make a decision on where he will be going to college, he said, “I am not quite sure but maybe sometime in September after everything in the summer is over. I am just weighing my options really.”

When choosing a college destination he mentioned some key factors that will play a role, “Really just a brotherhood and that I know everyone there wants to win but also have fun at the same time and that we are just always competing and getting after it in practice.”
