“Elijah is about to make some waves in the Arizona high school basketball scene,” Scottsdale Christian head coach John Anderson told AZCentral.com’s Richard Obert in June. “Elijah can score from all three levels … His strength is rarely matched when he strikes the basket.
“Along with his tremendous skills and athletic ability, Elijah brings incredible maturity and wisdom that has been passed down by his father, Monty Williams.”
The Team USA camp will also be for education, as it offers several programs for its participants and their families.
Among them are courses on NCAA eligibility and mental health issues.
