Former Miller School standout Isaac Copeland is making the most of his time at the NBA Players Association Top 100 Camp at John Paul Jones Arena this week.
The Georgetown-bound Copeland is relishing the opportunity to test himself against the nation's best high school players.
"It's great. It's a great way to prepare for the next level," Copeland explained. "In college, everybody is going to be good, and everybody out here is good, so it's a great way to get ready. The level here is really high."
The 6-9 Copeland averaged 18 points and 10 rebounds for Miller this past season, but transferred and will play Brewster Academy in New Hampshire in the fall.
Still, Copeland credits his time as a Maverick for helping making the adjustment to the NBPA Camp an easy one.
"At Miller I really built my confidence up to prepare for events like this so Miller definitely helped me out a lot for this type of camp," he said.
The highly-coveted Copeland picked Georgetown over other offers from Virginia, Florida State and NC State.
"Georgetown first of all is a great academic school. Playing for Coach Thompson, (there's) a lot of great history so I have a lot to live up to and I need to get as best prepared as I can."
One person who believes Copeland will do quite well with the Hoyas is his Camp Coach, NBA All-Star and Olympic Gold Medalist Andre Inguodala.
"Isaac is a really special talent," Iguodala said. "He has an opportunity to do a lot of great things. I'm expecting a lot from him. He has so many tools he can play with."
"It's great," Copeland said of working with Iguodala. "When I came in and I saw him standing on the sidelines I was just hoping he'd be my coach. I'm lucky to have him. He's teaching me a lot and I'm going to soak up as much knowledge from him as I can."
