2nd Annual MSE Texas Camp 2016 Recap

MSE Texas Camp Recap


Class of 2021 Javon Jackson (TX)

The 2nd Annual MSE Texas Camp took place Octobee 29, 2016 at The Gym in Humble, Texas — Houston. Campers from 3rd through 8th grade and spectators packed the arena.

During the introduction/motivation segment – we advised campers to limit their dribbling, and play north to south, not west to east.

We also stressed the importance of early NCAA academic awareness and preparedness, and explained the G.P.A score does not rollover from middle school; it starts in the 9th grade.

For parents, we recommended they create relationships with coaches, scouts and college recruiters instead of solely focusing on their own child’s play.

Here are several top performers whose character, skills and maturity shined bright at the MSE Texas Camp.


C/o 2021 Demari Williams (TX)

8th grade Javon Jackson Texas – The talented shooting guard arrived late to camp, but left MVP. He’s fundamentally sound and good enough to compete on his future high school varsity team as a freshman.
