West Coast Elite Under Amour’s 2018 Guard Cameron Shelton committed to Coach Jack Murphy and the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks. Shelton, a 6”2 defensive ace, brings athleticism and tenacity to a NAU team that is poised to make noise in the Big Sky in the coming years. This year at Damien High School, Shelton will star in a deep line up that is expected to compete deep into the CIF playoffs with legendary Coach Michael LeDuc at the helm.  


West Coast Elite Under Armour's President Ryan Silver on Cameron Shelton, “Cameron Shelton will be an all-conference Big Sky player. Great get for Coach Jack Murphy.”


West Coast Elite Under Armour`s Assistant UAA Director Justin Downer on Shelton’s commitment, “We are so proud of Cam and his commitment to Northern Arizona. We always talk with our guys about going to a school where the head coach loves you, and that’s the case with this fit for Cam and Northern Arizona. Cam is absolutely relentless on both ends of the floor, one of the best competitors on the circuit this year. Cams one of those guys that makes timely plays that help you win throughout the course of a game. Every teams best guard happens to have an “off night” when squaring off against Cameron. Excited to watch him tear up the Big Sky in the coming years!”


West Coast Elite Under Armour's 2018 Guard Cameron Shelton on his commitment, “Today is a big day for me and my family. Since my family is a football family its big for us because, I am the first person to earn a division 1 basketball scholarship ever. For that I am so grateful. I am grateful to everyone (so many to name) that has invested in me in the journey especially the leadership staff at West Coast Elite. I selected Northern Arizona University for the following reasons: 1)NAU Head Coach has been clear that he is recruiting me as a Point Guard which is my natural position versus Combo Guard, 2) Head Coach Jack Murphy has personally convinced me that I will have an opportunity to impact the program immediately, 3) I have bought in to the vision of Coach Murphy that NAU will be a top 3 program in the Big Sky right away and I am confident in my ability to impact the culture of a program especially when I am at the Point Guard position, 4) NAU has my Major of Business Marketing, and 5) NAU is close enough for my family to visit especially my aging grandparents.”


Cameron Shelton is the latest commitment out of the Los Angeles based Under Armour program with more to follow.
