Invitations to the academy are extended to the top 30 collegiate and the top 80 high school players. The players attending the skills training and learning session will participate in four days of competitive skills workouts as well as five-on-five games, according to information put out by the West Virginia athletic department.
The session begins July 9 and runs through July 12.
Staten, who will be a senior this fall, led the conference in 2013-14 with a scoring average of 18.1 through all games. He also is the first West Virginia player to score 500 or more points, haul down 150 rebounds and deliver 150 assists in a single season. And he has a chance to better that record in his final season in 2014-15.
The 6-1 point guard from Dayton, Ohio, was an All-Big 12 First Team selection this past season. He transferred from the University of Dayton in 2011.
“I hope to improve my skills to help me for my senior season at WVU, and also to help me improve to be able to play at the next level” Staten said in a statement issued by the West Virginia athletic department. “I’m eager to get better and look forward to the challenge of competing against the best players in the country. The camp can also help me get better.”
