Kaminsky Picks Up Big East Offer
Frank Kaminsky visited Lincoln Park this weekend along with his Illinois Wolves' teammates. While there, the Wolves participated in an open gym against a number of college players including DePaul's Eric Wallace and Mike Stovall as well as players from Bradley, Illinois, Northwestern, and Ohio State.
"It was a great facility," said Kaminsky. "I liked it. I liked playing against Evan (Turner), Demetri (McCamey), Johnny Shurna, Nick Fruendt, all those guys. It was a great experience playing guys who are most likely going to play in the NBA one day."
Afterwards, Kaminsky and Wolves' teammate Chasson Randle stopped by the DePaul offices for a visit with Blue Demons head coach Oliver Purnell and assistant Billy Garrett, who has been the lead recruiter on Kaminsky.
"It went well," Kaminsky said. "They showed me and Chasson a (Clemson highlight) video. I liked their style of play, run, motion offense. They're all nice people."
Kaminsky already boasts offers from Bradley, Northern Illinois, Northwestern, and Wisconsin. He is also receiving interest from Indiana and Xavier
Frank's school list is a diverse one when it comes to style of play.
"Style of play is something to consider, but it's not a main criteria for me," the 6-10, 220 lb. big man said of his college decision.
On the AAU circuit with the Wolves, Kaminsky splits time with Illinois commit Nnanna Egwu at the center position, but Frank sees himself playing center and/or power forward at the next level.
"I like to think that I play well in a four out/one in motion, because I can play both the four and the five in that and I like that," said Frank.
Next up for Kaminsky is an unofficial visit to Indiana and possibly a second visit to Wisconsin.
Kaminsky and fellow Wolves' teammate David Sobolewski star for the Benet Academy Redwings. Benet finished the season at 26-4 and made a deep run in the Class 4A playoffs this season. The Redwings advanced to the Elite Eight and came within one win of traveling downstate with their 58-50 double-overtime loss to Simeon.
In Benet's win over Glenbard North in the regional semifinal, Kaminsky scored a career-high 39 points.
Frank is looking forward to coming back for his senior year and advancing even further in the IHSA playoffs.
"I know this year we're not going to be able to sneak up on people like we did last year," said Frank. "I'm still going approach it the same way. Going for a state title has always been a dream of mine. It's something I've been working for the last three years. I'm just going to keep trying to do that, play hard every single game, and try to win as many games as possible."
