Summers's amazing Summer

With all of the excitement surrounding Macklin's commitment and a possible commit from "Duke" Crews (he's down to UNC, Wake, Tenn, and GU) we should not forget that Hoya-commit DeJuan Summers has shown he is also among the very best in his class. Here is the most recent report from Hoopscooponline:

Talk about poetic justice! Well, that's what happened earlier today when Howard Garfinkel announced the awards at the Five-Star Basketball Camp's loaded Honesdale, PA session and 6'8 Dajuan Summers from Owings Mills (McDonough) MD walked away with the Most Outstanding Player award for the week in the NBA. Prior to the start of the camp, Summers, was ranked no higher than #57 nationally in the senior class by the HOOP SCOOP. However, this terrific athlete who can beat you both inside and outside played better than anybody in camp and, as a result, gets this award the old-fashioned way (he earned it!). Summers also capped off the week with 14 points and five rebounds in the NBA All-Star Game and led his team to a runner-up finish in the camp playoffs and, as a result, now has to be one of the fastest rising players in the senior class nationally. As a matter of fact, this Georgetown-bound combo forward was [so] good that he will get my vote next March for the McDonald's All-American Game.
