Scottsdale Community College had an excellent season this year - winning the ACCAC Division-II Title for the second year in a row and advancing again to the NJCAA Division-II National Tournament. 6-foot-6, 200-pound sophomore forward Cameron Faas was a big part of the team's success the past two seasons for Head Coach Mark Bunker, and now has found his college home at a Division-I program in the Summit League. Faas recently gave a verbal commitment to the University of Missouri-Kansas City and Head Coach Marvin Menzies and his coaching staff.
Faas gave a big verbal to UMKC recently, after choosing the UMKC offer over offers from Louisiana-Monroe, Alaska Anchorage, Minnesota State, Concordia Irvine and Barry College.
Faas did not generate much Division-I college recruitment for himself in the recruiting process, but was very well deserving, as he improved a great deal as a college prospect over his two junior college seasons at SCC. Faas, alongside a well balanced team of performers, put up strong numbers as a sophomore for hard working Head Coach Mark Bunker. Faas helped lead Scottsdale JC to a 25-9 overall record this season, while averaging 13.6 points and 5 rebounds, while shooting 52.5% from the field and 49.7% from three-point distance. Faas was regarded among the top individual shooters of the basketball in the ACCAC over the past two seasons.
Faas is a nice looking college prospect. A graduate of Arcadia High School, Faas was an excellent find for Bunker and his coaching staff. Last season as a freshman, Faas also helped the program win the Division-II Conference Title, while also averaging similar numbers in both junior college seasons.
College programs need shooters, and Faas is among the top shooters in the ACCAC. He also possesses very good size as a shooter, and has the ability to rebound and guard players in the frontcourt at the 3 or 4 positions. He is an attractive prospect as a result of his size, ability to stretch the defense with a quick release and also put in on the floor and finish around the rim. Faas is a prospect that has proven his worth over the past two junior college seasons, and earned the opportunity to become a Division-I college prospect.
Congratulations to Faas and the Scottsdale Junior College program on this amazing accomplishment, and good luck to Faas in his collegiate future ahead from our staff at Arizona Preps.
