The Coastal Carolina University Team Camp took place this weekend and Prep Hoops took in the action. Lets take a look at some News & Notes from the camp.

Yaturi Bolton and Kyle Watkins  both rising sophomores played well this week. Bolton transferred into Goose Creek HS from Cathedral Academy.  Bolton runs the floor very well while rebounding the ball on both ends of the floor. Bolton saw good minutes last season at the SCISA 1-A school where he averaged 9 ppg and 8 rebounds a game.

Watkins a point guard is a table setter who plays at a really good pace on the floor. Watkins hit some mid-range jumper for his team the Carolina Forest HS Panthers today.

JB Favorite, Tonka Hemingway, Tyrese Mitchum and Mason Garcia all play big roles on their basketball teams. These 4 players might end up having better careers on the football field.
