5-star prospect MarJon Beauchamp skipping college, training in special program for 2021 NBA Draft
Five-star high school prospect MarJon Beauchamp will be skipping the college ranks to train with Chameleon BX ahead of the 2021 NBA Draft, according to a report from PR Newswire:
San Francisco based, Chameleon BX, announced MarJon Beauchamp will prepare for the 2021 NBA Draft by training in its 12-month program upon completion of his senior year of high school at Dream City Christian in Arizona.
Beauchamp is a 6-foot-6 small forward from the state of Washington. By most accounts, he’ll be one of the more sought-after players in the 2021 NBA Draft. He had already received offers from more than 12 Division I schools, including UCLA, Arizona, USC, Oregon State, Texas, Georgetown, Alabama, and Washington. However, he turned them all down.
MarJon and his father, JonMarc, took all of these collegiate offers into consideration, but they ultimately decided that training with Chameleon BX in preparation for the 2021 NBA Draft was their best option:
“I’m genuinely humbled by all the interest and offers I received by some great schools,” Marjon said. “Although they were tough to turn down, I believe the Chameleon BX program provides the kind of personalized attention I need to get my body and game properly prepared for pursuing my dream of a career in the NBA.”
Scouts are keeping a close eye on Beauchamp’s progression. They believe he has great “upside,” as they say, and a lot of room to grow. They feel he would be best served as a slasher or distributor, but he has also taken great strides as a shooter:
