D.J. Hogg, Plano West boys basketball

Plano West senior-to-be D.J. Hogg was one of 29 high school basketball players invited to the Kevin Durant Skills Academy.

Plano West senior-to-be D.J. Hogg was among the 29 high school basketball players invited to attend Nike's Kevin Durant Skills Academy.

A gathering of many of the top high school and college wing players in the country, Hogg was on hand for the latest edition of camp from June 27-29 in Washington D.C., hosted by the reigning NBA MVP.

Hogg is the third member of the Wolves invited to a Nike Skills Academy this summer, with sophomore-to-be Chris Giles participating in the Elite 100 camp on June 12-15 and senior-to-be Tyler Davis named for the Big Man Skills Academy on June 23-25, instructed by New Orleans Pelicans forward and former NBA Rookie of the Year Anthony Davis and Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins.

The summer isn't finished yet for Hogg or Davis either.

The two are scheduled to represent the Texas Titans on July 16-20 at the Nike Peach Jam in the finals of the Elite Youth Basketball League, held in North Augusta, South Carolina. West seniors-to-be Mickey Mitchell and Soso Jamabo, Plano East senior-to-be Isaac Asrat and Prestonwood Christian Academy senior-to-be Djery Baptiste will also participate.

Beforehand though, Hogg and Davis have received invites to the Nike LeBron James Skills Academy, held July 9-12 in Las Vegas. The camp annually features the top 80 high school and top 30 collegiate players from around the country for four days of tutelage under the four-time league MVP.
