The Jared Dudley Elite Skills Academy was recently held from June 26-28 at Alliant University. Dudley has been playing in the NBA for ten years and is currently a member of the Phoenix Suns. A native San Diegan (Horizon High School), Dudley has used this event as a way to give back to the young basketball players in his hometown. Over 100 campers from San Diego, ages 13-18, attended the three-day event.
San Diego State recruit Rejean “Boogie” Ellis was an attendee for the event and was dominant from the beginning. Ellis, a 2019 point guard who plays for Mission Bay High School and San Diego All-Stars, was named the Most Valuable Player of the camp.
This was my second time watching Ellis, I had seen him a month ago at the Compton Magic League, and I noticed that his game is already improving. At the Jared Dudley Camp he showed off a wide array of his skills. His passing was on point and he was scoring at all three levels. I also noticed that he was scoring through contact, something which he was not doing just last month. The last thing I noticed about Ellis was his leadership. He never got down on his teammates, rather he picked them up and facilitated the offense; making sure everyone got involved.
If he continues on the track he is on he will be one of the top players, if not the top player, in the San Diego class of 2019.
Here are some highlights of Ellis through the first two days of the Jared Dudley Elite Skills Academy:
