Widely considered one of the top rising freshmen camps in the country, invitations to the CP3 Rising Stars Camp are highly sought after. This past weekend in Lewisville, NC, over 200 freshmen participated in the elite event. Although it’s unclear exactly how many Ohio kids made the trip, we know that at least 2 Buckeyes rode standout performances to all-star game selections. Not only did Grant Huffman’s (6’2/SG/2020/Aurora) performance garner a lot of media attention, event organizers selected him for their Top 20 All-Star Game. Hufman’s bid to the premier game only strengthened his considerable national reputation as one of the top shooting guards in the nation.
Joining Huffman as an all-star was Zach Loveday (6’10/C/2020/Gallia County), who was selected for the event’s Top 40 game. Lovedays elite length at an early age is very intriguing, and his upside could be unlimited. Both Huffman and Loveday have been household names in Ohio and nationally, and both players project as early varsity starters and D-I prospects. Also attending and just missing out on an all-star nod was Nicholas Walters (5’9/combo guard/2020/Orange). Because Walters plays on a loaded NEO team, his talent is often over shadowed and overlooked. You can catch Huffman and Loveday in action on September 17th when they will compete on opposite teams as Ohio’s top 20 players square off in the prestigious Buckeye Prep Ohio North vs South All-Star Game! Congratulations to all of the above players for repping the Buckeye State!
