Yesterday, Matthew Moyer received word he was invited to the NBA Top 100 Camp, which is extremely prestigious. The camp was created in 1994 to assist elite level high school student-athletes in their development of basketball and life skills.

It will be held June 16th-21st at the University of Virginia.

Last night, Matthew talked about his excitement, "It means a lot to me, it shows all the hard work I've been doing is paying off. I'm just blessed and need to take it all in and also take advantage of it." Moyer continued, "This will be a good test for me to go out and play against the best competition in the country and see where my game is at, and see where I need to make improvements. There isn't a player in the country that I can't compete with."

Alumni of the Top 100 camp include: Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Dion Waiters, Kyrie Irving, Michael Carter-Williams, among many more.

As for the recent news of Tyus Battle verbally committing to Michigan, Moyer couldn't be happier for him. "I am so happy for Tyus Battle. Michigan is a great program first of all, and a great fit for him. He is going to be great there." The 6-8 forward also talked about his relationship with UM, "I am honored to have been recruited by Michigan. They are great people and a great school. I wish him the best."

Matthew has, in fact, been in contact with 2016 guard Kevin Huerter. Huerter is currently weighing the option of reclassification to the class of 2017. If the 6-5 guard wants to play for Coach Boehiem, he would need to attend prep school for a season.

Moyer added he's in daily contact with Jim Boeheim and Gerry McNamara, and will visit the campus "sometime soon," however it isn't urgent. Matt stated daily communication with the staff as the reason for the lack of urgency. He knows their relationship is strong, and he isn't going anywhere.

A few months ago, during the NCAA sanctions, Matt told me "well my answer is clear, I'm not going anywhere. I told myself, Coach B and the University that I'm coming, and that's not changing. Let the world know I'm Orange for life."

Late Wednesday night, Moyer told NunesMagician.com that he would be transferring from Gahanna Lincoln High School to South Kent for his senior season. South Kent is in the NEPSAC, which is the league he and his parents believe will help develop his game before he enrolls at Syracuse.
