Reddish has future high NBA lottery written all over his all-tools game and 6-foot-7 frame.

This month, Reddish legitimized what he’d been feeling for months and committed to Duke. Mike Krzyzewski and John Calipari (who coached him in Egypt) and Jay Wright all sat in this living room, in the corner chair where Cam sat as he talked about his year.

“No break, starting tomorrow.” It wasn’t the recruiting that was so crazy, Cam said. “Cam had the pleasure of meeting several players while in L. for the Nike Skills Camp, and Le Bron was one of them,” said his mother, Zanthia.

“It was an incredible and amazing experience.” It’s not just Nike, even though he played for the Nike-affiliated Team Final.

It seems as if elite high school basketball players can be on the court more months in a year than NBA players.

That thought brought a silent nod from Cam’s father, Bob.

“I was sitting there for like hours, hoping my flight would come back.” Since his parents had gotten delayed on their separate flight, his grandfather saved the night by driving two and a half hours down from Norristown, and brought him back to Philly to get a flight from here.

And his son qualifies as elite even among the elites.He talked about things he would go back and change, like pushing his players more in practice.” Kevin Durant and others were there to talk, too.“A lot of knowledge people don’t get at this age,” Reddish said.You don’t realize you’ll end up in Dulles Airport after a flight from Egypt through Germany, with no way to get to Augusta, Ga., for your important Peach Jam game because your late-night flight just got canceled.“Something happened in the airport, so there were no flights going out that night,” Reddish said.
