Cameron Gillus Another Local Product is Quietly Becoming the Pride of the DMV
Cameron Gillus exploded on the scene last year making a name for himself in the DMV and across the nation – he followed up a stellar performance at the Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom Camp with a body of work that would impress at any level during the 2014-15 season.
One of the most skilled youth players you will find, Gullus is a workout warrior who is constantly striving to improve his game. He returned to the Camp this year and re-established himself as a force to be reckoned with showing a combination of skill, IQ, and physical tools that continue to have him mentioned with the best of best in the class of 2023.
Cameron is arguably the most talented young guard in Virginia due to his lethal combination of athleticism and skill. He is a gifted scorer who can convert buckets at all three levels. His burst in transition during his weekend at the Spotlight Camp was dynamic; he showed he can finish with either hand. He knocked in several jump shots both in transition as well as in the half court set. His 1st step is impressive and he can stop on a dime and pull-up for the shot (has a nice step-back jump shot also). He competes at both ends and has active hands Cameron is also an excellent scoring playmaker off the bounce.
He is a very well rounded combo guard that can flat out score and he easily transitions to the lead guard spot where he can operate as a floor general and facilitator he make the right reads and creates proper spacing to make plays and the players around him better.
The gifted young guard has a lot of tools at his disposal and he knows how use them appropriately in situational basketball. As his game continues to evolve, he should be considered a Top 10 talent nationally and Top 3 in the DMV moving forward.
