PORTLAND, ORE., AUGUST 13, 2021 — PrimeTime Sports LLC together with Pro Insight today announced that the fifth edition of the PrimeTime 40 Showcase powered by Pro Insight will return to Portland, Ore. on Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021. The annual invite-only event offers high school athletes from California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon and Washington the opportunity to showcase their elite basketball talents in front of college coaches and national media.
“We are ecstatic to bring PrimeTime 40 back to Portland after being forced to cancel last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said event director Reggie Walker. “Every year the camp is an overwhelmingly positive experience for both the players and the local basketball community. ‘PT40 5.0’ will undoubtedly be our best one yet.”
During the one-day camp, athletes from the 2022-25 high school classes receive instruction from top basketball coaches and trainers while competing for recognition amongst their peers. The competitive environment is highlighted by combine-style measurements and drills conducted by longtime NBA sports performance coach Bob Medina. Participants will also receive free product courtesy of Nike Basketball and there is no cost for the exclusive event.
Among the notable PT40 alumni are Payton Pritchard (Boston Celtics), Nathan Bittle (Oregon), Isaac Bonton (Washington State), Aaron Deloney (Vermont), Ben Gregg (Gonzaga) Kamaka Hepa (Hawaii), Nolan Hickman (Gonzaga), Wayne McKinney (San Diego), Shane Nowell (Arizona), Kaden Perry (Gonzaga), Zach Reichle (Oregon State), Erik Stevenson (South Carolina), Tanner Toolson (BYU), and Marcus Tsohonis (VCU).
Official invites will be extended to select athletes in the coming weeks. Player lists, staff in attendance and additional information will be provided at a later date.
