Basketball Recruiting

2022 prospect Cameron Corhen adds SEC offer, talks recruitment

March 2, 2021

John Paul II has had an excellent season this year despite all of the obstacles that the game of basketball ball has dealt with over the past year. JPII is the top-rated team in their conference and it helps that they’ve got two five-star prospects in Manny Obaseki and Jaylon Tyson.

But the important piece to the puzzle? The 6-foot-10 big man they’ve got in Cameron Corhen. 

Texas A&M signee Manny Obaseki raved to about the development of JPII’s starting big, calling him “skilled” and pointed out how much he’s improved all season long. Obaseki is also going to have to now recruit Corhen, as he added his first SEC offer from the regional Texas A&M Aggies yesterday afternoon.

Corhen has had a very nice season for the 22-1 and top-rated John Paul II squad. He’s currently got season averages of 13.4 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. He’s got a great combination of size and skill, scores the ball from all three levels including mid-range and from beyond the arc.

His upside is also major, he just needs to gain more weight and get stronger which he’s already started doing.

As for his recruitment, we mentioned the Texas A&M offer he added yesterday, but, he’s also got other high-major programs that have been/entered the mix and Corhen took the time to discuss them with

We’re sitting here and you just been offered by Texas A&M, what are your first thoughts?

“My initial thoughts on the A&M offer was “wow this is my first SEC school, this is really a big deal” but besides that, I was really excited for this one.”

How about Virginia Tech’s pursuit of you? How often do they contact you?

“I talk to Virginia Tech the most. Coach Frazier, one of the assistant coaches, talks to my parents and me every day.”

Which other programs are heavily involved?

“TCU, that’s about it.”

Are there any newer schools to enter the mix?

“Recently, I’ve talked to LSU and Coach Capko from USC.”

How would you best describe your game?

“I would describe my game as a long-player who can guard multiple positions as well as space the floor and also finish above the rim.”

What are your next steps?

“My next steps are honestly to just keep working like I have no offers because the minute I become complacent there’s somebody gunning for what I have waiting to take my spot. So I just forget about the recruitment and just focus on getting better.”
