Kameron Ng commits to join Warriors

Kameron Ng, the Hawai’i high school player of the year in 2019, announced his commitment to join the University of Hawai’i basketball team.

Ng, who is currently a senior at St. Francis School, made the announcement via social media on Sunday evening.

The 5-foot-11 guard averaged  a state-best 24.4 points per game, and also made 74 3-pointers in 26 games during his senior season for the Saints. He was named the Gatorade State High School Player of the Year for Hawai’i in both 2018 and 2019.

Ng was a four-year starter for St. Francis, and averaged 20.5 points per game during his high school career. He was named the Division II Player of the Year by ScoringLive.com in both 2017 and 2018 after leading the Saints to state titles both seasons. St. Francis moved up to Division I this past season, and Ng was named Player of the Year by both ScoringLive.com and the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

There are no official Hawaii high school records, but Ng’s 2,363 points during his four-year varsity career are likely the most scored by any player in the islands.

  1. Glad that he will get a chance. But would like to see him play a year or two in Prep school.

    The other recruit, Madut, had 2 years in prep school. Going back, Isaac Fleming had 2 years in prep school, and when he was here as a Freshman he was ready to play. Julian Sensley played at least 1 year in prep school. It’s a very common thing for basketball players to do, and it would do wonders for this guy’s physical development.

    Even Villa is a couple years older after his mission.

    Face it, Hawaii is not known as an elite hotbed of basketball talent. A couple years of development and seasoning would help bring him up to speed. Save the redshirt year.

  2. yes true but if he does good he would not come back to hawaii to play

  3. Good luck to him, actually he is closer to 5ft 9. , So far this recruiting year is very worrisome, the staff needs to sign bonafide D1 guards and forwards that are scorers, we don’t have anyone currently fitting that role. Very Concerning!! At this point in time one would expect some exciting signings, Lets Go Warriors! This coming season will be a telling season, for one this coaching staff needs to show all the loyal fans and athletic administration that they can recruit exciting top flight players to our mid major school that has tbe BEST FACILITIES in the conference that is mostly made of colleges with high school type GYMS NOT ARENAS. Come on coach, lets get it going!

    Do people not forget that Ng played three years in Division II? Playing against teams like Le Jardin, Hawaii Baptist, Hawaii Mission Academy. What would have happened if say Alika Smith, Kalia McGee, or even a Dyrbe Enos/Zach Buscher played most of their prep career in the weakest division? They’d probably be lighting it up as well. Let’s put some actual context to the numbers, people. Not to mention, Ng was allowed to play on a team where his dad was on the bench and made sure his son didn’t come out the game even if Saint Francis held a 20-point blowout lead or a 50-point blowout loss. He stayed in and chucked it up.

  5. I normally wouldn’t mind the signing but bringing him in when you already have Villa in the same class doesn’t make sense. Both are undersized PG’s who are not ready to play right away. Villa is coming off his mission and Ng will have to make a huge adjustment to D1 ball especially as a primary ball handler.

  6. @ Pono

    Villa is a 6’0″ point guard while Ng is a 5’9″ shooting guard. I don’t understand why you’re throwing both of these guys into the same category of player. Villa’s skillset translates to college ball running an offense and he has played much tougher competition than Ng whereas Ng will not have the opportunities he had in college as he had in high school because UH won’t need to isolate and let him shoot the entire game or play the entire game.
