Cameron highlights Spring Fling

WAYNE, N.J. – For many, the Spring Fling marked the unofficial tip-off of the spring AAU season. The event, run by Jim Salmon of the Playaz Basketball Club, served as a gathering place for many of the top New Jersey and New York travel teams and provided an early peek at players mainly from the 2013 and 2015 classes.

Standout performers

Reggie Cameron (Hudson, N.J./Hudson Catholic)

2013, PF, 6-5, 195 pounds

Cameron is a hybrid 4-man with one of the better strokes we’ve seen a big have in the class. Offensively, he has the hallmarks – especially from the perimeter – of a small forward. Defensively he guards bigs. As the summer evolves, watching him settle into a position will be a question we and college recruiters have. Regardless, he’ll be a high-major player.

Leo Vincent (Bensalem, Pa./Bensalem)

2013, PG, 5-11, 160 pounds

Events like this one are havens for under-the-radar types like Vincent. He’s not on a “name” travel team but that’s not a problem since he’s better than many of the guys he locks up with. His shooting is outstanding and after the weekend, it’s a safe bet that he knows what he’s doing when it comes to playing with poise and captaining a squad.
