Chukwu stars at Hoop Mt. AA Camp

With action at the seventh annual Hoop Mountain All-Academic Camp coming to a close on the campus of Brandeis University on Friday, prospects continued to compete hard hoping to gain the attention of some of the country’s premiere academic institutions still packing the sidelines.  With so many terrific players headlining play at camp over the past couple of days, New England Recruiting Report wanted to highlight a select 12 who separated themselves with their stellar performances, as well as draw attention to a unique match-up that took place between two special frontline prospects.

Match-up of the Day- Battle of the Seven-Footers

During the mid-morning game set, a battle of giants took place when seven-foot-one, class of 2012 center Edo Lawerence from England collided with seven-foot-one, 2014 big Pascal Chukwu out of Trinity Catholic (CT).   Lawerence struck first with a monster two-handed dunk in the first half, before Chukwu countered with a series of tip-ins and above-the-square blocks that showcased his potential as a Dwight Howard-esque defensive presence. Lawrence and Chukwu continued to trade barbs on the low-block, giving coaches and spectators a glimpse of the enormous upside of both prospects with their massive length and spectacular finishing ability.  The match-up between the two post giants not only showcased the budding future of two unique prospects, but personified the type of elite competition that has been taking place all camp long at this year’s Hoop Mountain All-Academic.

**Hoop Mountain All-Academic Camp Dream Dozen**

Paschal Chukwu – A physical freak of nature at seven-foot-one with a 90-inch wingspan, Chukwu was the buzz of the camp over the course of the last two days with his supreme size and length patrolling the paint, rebounding and blocking shots in high volume while converting multiple lobs towards the top corner of the square.  With still very limited game experience against quality competition, he’s still just scratching the surface of his boundless upside as a game-changing force on both ends of the floor who has the chance to make an impact at the very highest levels of college basketball and beyond.—Friday-Recap.php

Hoop Mt. All Academic Camp

Thursday kicked off the 7th Hoop Mountain All Academic Camp.
Team Frenji players Matt Staubi & Pascal Chukwu are there:
Here are Thursday’s evaluations:
Paschal Chukwu (Trinity Catholic)- The most intriguing long-term prospect at the event at a legitimate seven-foot-one, Chukwu features a 90-inch wing span (Dwight Howard’s is 88) that he uses to block and alter shots in high volume and rebound the ball out of his area solid ball pursuit through contact.  With live feet and developing hands around the basket, his upside is limitless with some added muscle and game experience against quality competition.
Matt Staubi (Rye Country Day)- An impressive young guard with a future NESCAC-molded game, Staubi throws the ball ahead in transition, makes efficient plays with a tight, creative handle, and, while his lack of size limits his ability to get to and finish at the rim at this point, he fills it up from three and finds people for high-percentage looks with a high basketball I.Q.
