2018 NBA lottery pick Michael Porter Jr was first seen by ESPN at the 2013 CREI.

The invite-only camp, which has housed some of the games brightest stars, features the nations best high school underclassmen.

A stage unlike any other, the CREI gives underclassmen the chance to develop and compete in front of some of grassroots basketball’s most influential people. ESPN.com’s John Stovall had this to say about the event in a 2014 recap, “Adam Shoulders (Camp President) and Kurt Stubbs (Former Camp VP) do a great job of accruing talent from across the United States in order to make this a top-flight event.”

This years camp will be headlined by 10-time gold medalist and U-17 USA basketball head coach Don Showalter. Coach Showalter will be putting campers through some of the same drills that have helped him lead the U-17 national team to 10 gold medals. He will also be scouting for talent in the camp’s all star games to cap off the event.

Before he was a 2018 lottery pick, Kevin Knox was a 2014 CREI attendee.

Over the course of the 3 days, campers will receive a balanced diet of skill development and games. Camp all star games will be played within a bracket format to encourage competitive play. Live stats will be kept for each camp game and will be posted online throughout the event. This will help provide insight to how every camper performed throughout the weekend. On Sunday, June 2nd, the camp will be narrowed down to a Top 24 and Top 40 all star game to be attended by fans and national media.

Take advantage of the opportunity to be next in a growing line of big time prospects to get their start at CrossRoads Elite. Ranked players that have had breakout performances at CrossRoads Elite include: Michael Porter (Denver Nuggets), Kevin Knox (New York Knicks), Bol Bol (Oregon, projected lottery pick), Darius Garland (Vanderbilt, projected lottery pick), Kevin Porter Jr (USC, projected 1st round pick), Kaleb Wesson (Ohio State), Kris Wilkes (UCLA), Kamaka Hepa (Texas), Jalen Smith (Maryland), Jontay Porter (Missouri), Kahlil Whitney (UK commit and projected 2020 lottery pick) and more.
