Former Bradley basketball star Marcellus Sommerville brings camp to Peoria

Peoria, Il. (HOI) – Former Bradley University basketball star Marcellus Sommverville is spreading his knowledge of the game in Peoria this week during his traveling kid’s camp.

Sommerville played during Bradley’s Sweet 16 run in 2005-2006 and professionally overseas. Next Generation Academy is at the Lakeview Recreational Center.

Sommerville says the focus is on fundamental skills, basketball IQ, and even professionalism on the court.

“My favorite part is the kids seeing some results, as far as reward. And then I see that and my face lights up when a kid learns how to shoot a layup with the right footwork,” said Sommerville.

If your kids missed this camp, Next Generation Academy has another one-day clinic in August.
