3 Team Pride products visit Purdue, participate in Elite Camp

-Team Pride, arguably the top travel team in Michigan, had a great July and coaches from all over the country have begun to track Pride prospects. Basically every school in the Big Ten are now recruiting Pride players. Purdue, has been one of the most aggressive. Purdue is heavily recruiting BOTB's #1 player in the state for the class of 2011 and 2012 in Tommie McCune the 6'8 F from Saginaw High and Matt Costello the 6'9 PF from Bay City Western who runs the court like a deer. Saginaw High's 6'5 Trey Babers a Jr Wing is also getting Purdue interest as well as interest from Iowa and Michigan.

All three played very well at camp and the Purdue staff will continue to monitor their progress and recruit them diligently. BOTB will keep you updated on these and other players recruitment!
