Five-star guard RJ Hampton is reclassifying to the 2019 class and is considering four schools, his father Rod Hampton told 247Sports.
“Just his play at USA and not from what everyone else said, but it was my feeling as his dad,” Hampton said. “His play at USA and this weekend [at EYBL], it was stellar. You got bonafide pros in that league. In 24 months, 36 months you have bonafide pros from 2020 to 2022.”
“We talked about it before this weekend and then on the plane on the way back, and he said he didn’t have anything left for high school,” he added.
Hampton, a 6-foot-5 combination guard out of Little Elm (Tex.) High, has been contemplating this move for the past year. His play at EYBL this past weekend, helped solidify the move. Hampton was second in scoring during the league, averaging 28.8 points a game.
