There are a handful of guys participating in this year's NBPA Top-100 Camp in Charlottesville that are being recruited by Virginia. Two of them are point guards.
Texas native Kendall Harris has an offer on the table from Virginia. UVa is the only school on the East Coast to offer Harris. Harris has scholarship from several other schools closer to his home state of Texas including Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. Harris is rated a 3-star prospect by Rivals.
The other point guard on display at the NBPA Camp that has an offer from Virginia is Anthony Barber. Barber is from Hampton. He has offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Connecticut and Kansas to name a few. He's rated a 4-star prospect by Rivals. Barber recently called Duke his dream school, but he hasn't gotten an offer from the Blue Devils yet.
Both point guards are just tying to showcase their skills.
Barber says, "I think I played good. We played as a team. I came out, and got my teammates going, and then when it was my time to score, I was scoring. Coach told me, he said he heard about me a lot. He said he knew when it was down to the wire, it's my time to go. He told me to get to the bucket, so that's what I did."
Harris says, "I like competition. It's really good for getting better. When I go back home I can just feed off the competition that was here."
The NBPA Top-100 camp continues through Saturday. This is the 6th year it has been held at John Paul Jones Arena. UVa basketball coach Tony Bennett is not allowed to have any contact with the players during the camp according to NCAA rules.
