Eastern Illinois Camp to Feature 2017 WG
After visiting Austin Peay, Luke DeHahn (Indiana) heads to Charleston, Illinois this Sunday (6/19).
“I’ll probably go to Eastern Illinois elite camp Sunday,” said DeHahn to OVCHoops.com Sunday (6/12) evening.
A 6-foot-7 wing from Faith Christian High School (IN), DeHahn is transitioning to shooting guard. He knows that the evolution will impact his offer list. In fact, DeHahn is confident Austin Peay will offer once he shines during the July recruiting period.
“The (Austin Peay) visit went pretty well too,” reported DeHahn. “I think I could land an offer as long as I keep improving on my guard skills.”
Shooting off the dribble is good for DeHahn, but he could be great. It kind of goes without saying that the guy can shoot. He is from Indiana.
According to DeHahn he has prevailing interest from Central Connecticut State, VMI, Eastern Illinois, Omaha, Lincoln Memorial (D2), University of Tampa (D2), Missouri State, UIC, University of Indianapolis (D2), and Saint Joseph’s.
“I might go to elite camps at Tampa, Lincoln Memorial and VMI,” said DeHahn.
The Eastern Illinois Camp will be an opportunity to shine at a nearby D1 school. Under Head Coach Jay Spoonhour routinely scours Missouri and occasionally Illinois for his next Panthers. DeHahn does live in the western portion of Indiana, so he is not too far away for observation.
The hardest part for guys like Luke is just being seen. He has continued to improve his game, which makes it more likely each opportunity will be fully embraced.
“I workout/play against some of the high major players in Indiana and I can hold my own against them, so I just need to showcase myself some more,” said DeHahn.
Much of Dehahn’s June has been laying the ground work for a big July Evaluation Period. He has done an expert job getting his name and game out in the eyes of the decision makers. Next month, his last AAU push, DeHahn aims to turn interest into offers.
“Austin Peay, Central Connecticut State, Tampa, U. of Indy, Wofford, Alcorn State, and Eastern Illinois are going to watching me personally (in July),” said DeHahn.
