28th Annual Rick Bolus’ High Potential "Blue-Chip" Basketball Camp 2007

Session Two

July 22-26, 2007
Georgetown, KY

2007 by Ron Harrison

Introduction

The 28th Annual Rick Bolus’ High Potential "Blue-Chip" Basketball Camp was held in Georgetown, Kentucky at Georgetown College.

The camp director for this camp is Rick Bolus, who is entering his 35th season as a basketball scout and his 28th year as an exposure basketball camp director.  Rick Bolus started the Rick Bolus High Potential Basketball Recruiting Service in 1973.  He is also a consultant for several national basketball tournaments, shootouts, and All-Star games.  Numerous colleges representing all levels of play subscribe to his High Potential Basketball Recruiting Service.

Doug Huff will again be a camp player analyst this year.  Mr. Huff has been a national high school contributing editor for Street & Smith Magazine since 1975.  Mr. Huff also serves on the board for several All-Star and All-America committees.  His stories or columns have appeared in several prominent sports publications.

There are two sessions this year:  June 24-28 and July 22-26.  The first session includes a Junior division.  This report will cover the second session, held July 22-26.  Each session also features speakers on recruitment and academics.  All players also receive mini-clinics.  There are mini-clinics for guards, big men, and 3-point shooters.  There are also optional competition contests as well as a written evaluation from the camper’s league coach.

Some of the outstanding players who have attended Rick Bolus’ camps include Rex Chapman, Tim Couch, Richie Farmer, Travis Ford, Pat Graham, Darren Hancock, Allen Houston, Jack Ingram, Jimmy Jackson, Dan Langhi, Derek Lowe, A. J. Moye, Brad Miller, Larry O’Bannon, Jared Odle, Scott Padgett, John Pelphrey, Felton Spencer, Scott Sutton, Sean Sutton, Dejuan Wheat, and Albert White.

Each Senior division player in the July 22-26 session plays a minimum of eight league games (not counting playoff games and All-Star contest).  All games are played full-court in Alumni Gym and the intramural complex.  All players receive equal playing time as substitutions are done by the clock.  All teams in both junior and senior divisions will compete in a single elimination tournament. Certified trainers are on duty at all times.

The High Potential “Blue-Chip” Basketball Camp is not affiliated with any other basketball camp using the name “Blue-Chip”.

Summary

There was a lot of talent on with several players making good impressions this week.  5-11 Sr. Isaac Johnston (Leavenworth, KS) claimed a lot of honors this week.  Johnston was named Camp MVP, South Division MVP, named to the Top 30 All-Star team, was the South Division Tourney MVP.  6-0 Sr. Antonio Sullivan (Iroquois Louisville, KY) was Camp Runner-Up MVP, South Division Runner-Up MVP, and was named the Top 30 All-Star game MVP.  6-4 Jr. Nathan Davis a high flyer from Stivers School, Dayton, OH) was the slam dunk champ, the North Division Runner-Up MVP, and was named to the Top 30 All-Star team.  There were several talented young players in the camp, including 6-4 Fr. Tony Kimbro (duPont Manual Louisville, KY), who was named West Division MVP and was named to the Top 30 All-Star team. 

Several players performed well at this camp with several likely to receive college scholarships.  There was a lot of young talent in camp that could develop into excellent players.  I was also impressed with effort expended by players regardless of the score or their team record.

I regularly cover AAU events in the state of Kentucky and this week several rosters were filled with players I have seen grow through the ranks of Kentucky AAU.  This includes the fine inside-outside duo of 6-6 Sr. Dustin Day of 6-0 Jr. James David Strange from Pineville, KY.  The team designated "South Carolina" roared through the week with a perfect 11-0 record with several players being veterans of strong AAU programs.  June Buchanan had three members on this team: Tate Cox, Trey Short, and Garrison Collins.  Shelby Valley was also well-represented with Ashley Hatfield, Elisha Justice, and Taylor Newsome.

Conclusion

This was my ninth year attending the camp and I continue to be impressed with the involvement and work ethics of the camp director.  He has a very “hands-on” approach and observes each player’s performance at least once daily.  While talent levels may vary slightly from camp to camp, the players have ample opportunity to display their abilities, and there are always some previously undiscovered gems.
 

The strengths of this camp should start with the aforementioned work ethics of the camp director.  He makes everyone feel welcome and provides the official camp programs, all-star game rosters, and the list of award winners.  Another, and I believe, very important, strength of this camp is the presence of certified trainers.  Injures are evaluated and treated immediately with doctors being on call at all times.  This camp also has a tremendous up-side for players who have either not had the exposure or are late bloomers.
