Detroit Consortium’s Josh Jackson, Saginaw Arthur Hill’s Eric Davis impress at USA Basketball Developmental Camp
October 10, 2012 in High School
Two Michigan high school players, Saginaw Arthur Hill class of 2015 player Eric Davis and Detroit Consortium class of 2016 player Josh Jackson, had strong performances at a USA Basketball Developmental Camp in Colorado Springs last weekend. Here’s ESPN’s Dave Telep on Jackson:
Josh Jackson (Detroit, Mich./Consortium) didn’t fully believe he was a good player prior to camp. He knew he had talent and people told him he was good, but he didn’t truly begin believing it until Saturday night. A defensive sequence lit a fire under him and he’s been sensational ever since. Jackson’s responsible for the play of the camp when he hammered home a dunk then raced to the other end of the court to reject an easy bucket. His energy livened up the event.
Sunday morning during a four-on-four fastbreak/transition drill he fired up the entire gym with an impressive two-way display. First on offense, he drove the lane and slammed home a contested dunk. Quickly, his team had to turn their attention to defense. Jackson turned on the jets for a sprint down the length of the floor and leaped high off the ground to block a dunk attempt from behind, drawing cheers from all of the players and setting the tone for the session.
Kellon Hassenstab of Hoopniks.com wrote this about Davis:
While Hoopniks.com had an opportunity to evaluate many of these prospects before, several new faces highly impressed. In particular, we noted the scoring ability of 2015 shooting guard Eric Davis of Arthur Hill (MI).
