Hazleton, PA (Future150) -- The 2016 Future150 Camp season marked the second time we've brought our camp series to the Northeast. In 2014, our New York camp had several future division one prospects in attendance, including Adrian Autry (Syracuse), Anthony Gaines (committed to Northwestern), Maceo Jack (committed to George Washington) and notable 2018 high-major recruits Sean Good and Mika Adams-Woods

In September, our Pennsylvania camp debuted at famed Martz Hall in Pottsville, and several more prospects put their names on the regional radar, including Hazleton High School (PA) small forward prospect Da'mir Faison. At the camp, he was named a Top 24 All-Star selection and dominated game action all weekend.

The 6'4", 185-pound wing is a relentless rebounder, solid finisher around the rim, and is showing signs of developing ball skills and perimeter ability. A high-motor player with a hunger to get better, Future150 Pennsylvania Camp was just his launching point. In October, he attended the absolutely loaded Pangos All-East Camp, where he was named a Top 30 All-Star as well.

The youngest rotation player on a loaded Cougars team this season, he's doing damage every time he's given the opportunity, helping his team to a 6-2 record so far this year.

"I'm just trying to become a better player and make my team better. I'm trying to contribute to the team and trying to win a district championship this year," he told Future150.

Currently averaging rougly 10 points, four rebounds and two assists per game, he's beginning to emerge as one of the best sophomores in the entire state. This AAU season, expect an ultimate breakout spring and summer.

Stating that his toughest competition so far this season has been Williamsport (PA) bouncy wing and close friend Stan Scott, he didn't back down in a showdown of the two of the most talented teams in the district, scoring 21 points, with Scott pouring in 32 of his own.

After getting to know Da'mir, we found out that he has an impressive shoe collection. Well, soon enough, he could see himself with more interest and offers from college programs than the shoes he collects.
