In the midst of a breakout junior season, Camden Cerese is starting to see his college recruitment build. Throughout the season, Cerese has been one of the top junior point guards in the Chicago area playing for Lake Park High School. 

Currently in the season, the 6’3” junior is averaging 21 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals per game to have Lake Park sitting at a 10-6 record. This includes a 40-point game earlier this season back in December. 

“Unselfish player that loves his teammates to score,” Cerese said to describe his own game. “But also, could get any bucket for my team at any time. I strive to be a three-level scorer that can score from all areas of the court. I take a lot of pride in my defense to guard the best player on the opposing team.” A couple aspects of his game he is looking to improve upon include becoming a more consistent perimeter shooter as well to “be more of a playmaker at times and put my teammates in positions to be successful,” he mentioned. 

The list of interested college programs for Cerese only continues to grow as more coaches see the junior play. Coaches from all levels are currently interested in him. Elmhurst, Macalester, Quincy, and UIC are amongst the early schools showing the most interest. 

Cerese will be a player to see this spring with Greater Purpose Athletics.
