"Dreams really can come true...you just have to be willing to trust God and chase them" Camron P. Greer
“Standing at about 5' 6" who would have ever thought that my son (Camron Greer) would be a member of one of a NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball Team. Camron has always been a self-driven young man and has placed God first. At the early age of four Camron developed a love for the game of basketball that made him very determine, competitive and a hard working young man. The work ethic Camron displayed was not just in basketball but also in everything that he was involved in, whether it was playing video games, school work or helping others" says his mother Charrise Greer.”
Camron’s love of the game grew, as he got older. Camron enrolled into Rich Central High School where the competition was at a higher level. The majority of the players were bigger and stronger than Camron. The competitive spirit within Camron would not allow him to accept to be second best, so he considered getting a personal trainer. Camron, his mother and father decided to reach out to Coach Jason Kent and his wife Anna at NextLEVEL 24. The Greer family has known Coach Kent and his wife for a while and really wanted them to work with Camron to develop his game and overall confidence. Camron made it clear that he wanted to be put in a position where he could have the opportunity of playing college basketball.
Camron began to receive one-on-one training from Coach Kent and advising from Mrs. Kent helping him in his personal areas. This proved to be the right decision.
Fast-forward to Camron’s senior year. Camron was still working with Coach Kent at NextLEVEL 24 and during this time he was selected as the starting point guard and team Captain. Camron wasn’t getting any college looks so he turned to Coach Kent who has help a number of players reach their dream of playing college basketball. Coach Kent went to work and began to tirelessly network via phone and email sending information out about to Camron. This process continued throughout the season and into the spring. With graduation on the horizon a decision needed to be made.
Camron was a great student, named Valedictorian of his senior class and had a number of academic scholarships on the table. Camron elected to pursue an Academic scholarship at the University of Dayton, yet not giving up on his love for basketball. This is when Coach Kent really help Camron’s dream come to pass. A new coaching staff had just taken over Dayton Basketball program. With Coach Kent being a former Collegiate Coach he happen to know someone on the new staff and made a call for Camron.
With Camron’s academic and character, it was easy for Coach Kent to help open a door for Camron to have an opportunity to tryout and later join the University of Dayton Men’s Basketball Team. Camron followed the game plan that he and Coach Kent planned out and NextLEVEL 24 is excited to announce, Camron Greer is a member of the University of Dayton’s Men’s Basketball Team.
Camron would be the second player from Rich Central that NextLEVEL24 has helped fulfill their dream of playing collegiate basketball. Another Rich Central player Glen Abrams was offered a full scholarship to play at West Virginia State University. “If you are trying to play college basketball you would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not invest in your future and contact Coach Kent and NextLEVEL 24” said Charrise Greer.

Next Level 24 has truly been a tremendous aid throughout the process of searching for a school that was best for me. I had known Coach Jason Kent and his wife for quite some time, and I knew how experienced they were with the game. Hence, I reached out to the Kent family for their assistance with my preparation for the next level. They spent many early days and late nights with me in the gym in order to work with me on my game. During this preparation, my primary goal was to pursue a Chemical Engineering degree while playing the sport that I love. However, Coach Kent wanted nothing less than the best for me. He didn’t want me with just any basketball program. His goal was to get me onto a Division I roster, and he made every effort to do so. These efforts included reaching out to as many coaches as he could, and getting me into the right showcase events. Eventually, I made the decision to attend the University of Dayton with intent and hope of becoming a walk-on for the men’s basketball team. Fortunately, Coach Kent knew someone on staff at the university. Coach Kent was able to connect me with him, and he made sure I had all of the necessary information in regards to when and where try-outs would be held, and what I would needed to participate. In the end, I accomplished my goal. I am now a member of the Men’s Basketball Team at the University of Dayton, and I am pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering. The Kent Family and Next Level Basketball has truly been a blessing to my family and I. They have always encouraged me to work hard, trust the process, and stay focused on my goals at hand. To the Kent family and the members of Next Level, thank you all for the love and support you all have shown, and thank you for pushing me to work harder and harder every day. I pray that you all continue to change the lives of the youth of the Chicagoland area by making their dreams come true.
