From July 13th to the 15th, 13 former and current college basketball players from Tennessee and the Upper Cumberland, Assistant Coach Ezra Pinzur of Alabama Huntsville, and Coach Layne Bussell of Algood hosted the Upper Cumberland Basketball Camp. They hosted students from across the Upper Cumberland ranging from 1st to 8th grade.
Among the players hosting the camp was former Tennessee Vols Basketball player John Fulkerson. Fulkerson attended the University of Tennessee from 2016-2022, but formed an Upper Cumberland connection before that in high school. Cade Crosland from White County High School and Tennessee Tech was an AAU teammate of Fulky’s back in high school.
During the camp, John took the time to talk with UCSN about what drives him to coach younger players at camps, and also about signing with the Leuven Bears in Belgium.
