UConn guards, Rodney Purvis and Jalen Adams have been invited to Chris Paul's Elite Guard camp. Former Huskies Shabazz Napier and Ryan Boatright both participated in past CP3 Elite Guard events. 

Position Sports, camp host, described fully the event on their website. (

"The CP3 Elite Guard Camp annually features the top 30 high school point guards from around the country (including the top players from his home state of North Carolina) and the top 15 college point guards for an intense three-day training camp with Chris overseeing each session. Players are tutored from Chris on everything from skill development to film breakdown to life skills. Current and former NBA Coaches and Elite High School Coaches round out the staff to provide a once in a lifetime opportunity."

Last season as a freshman, Adams averaged 7.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per contest. Although his statistics last year were not fantastic, the potential was certainly there. At times, Adams flashed brilliance and shades of former UConn guards. This is a great opportunity for Adams to improve his game under the instruction of one of the NBA's finest. 

On the other hand, Rodney Purvis averaged 12.8 points, 3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists as a junior. Purvis has displayed the ability to attack the basket ferociously, and has established himself as a solid shooter. Entering his senior season, Purvis needs to work on finishing around the rim. Again, this camp is a great experience for him to develop his skills.
