Cameron Fordham’s college basketball journey will begin at Spartanburg Methodist.
Berkeley High School boys basketball coach Joe Wallace predicts it won’t end there, though. Wallace said the senior guard has the tools to make another jump after two years in the Upstate junior college program.
“I expect great things from him as he furthers his academic and athletic career at Spartanburg Methodist,” Wallace said. “Cameron has the potential to be a great player for them as well as getting looks from D-II schools.”
This past winter, Fordham assisted the Stags in their thrilling run to Region 7-5A and 5A Lower State titles. Berkeley finished 26-2, falling to Dorman in the state championship.
Fordham averaged 7.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.1 steals. He topped 20 points twice.
“Cameron was a very nice addition to our basketball team,” Wallace said. “He fit right in and jelled pretty quickly with the team. When our opponents tried to double team Ishan White in the post, it left Cameron wide open to knock down 3-point shots which he did a lot of this season. I was very pleased with his attitude and his contribution to Berkeley Basketball.”
Spartanburg Methodist competes in NJCAA Div. I. The Pioneers were 19-11 last season.
Fordham became the sixth member of the basketball team to sign an athletic scholarship. White and forward Trevur Smalls are headed to Chipola College in Florida.
Three others inked letters of intent in football.
Fordham transferred from Goose Creek High School, where older brother Chris Fordham stood out before going to Coker College.
Chris played in 20 games for the Cobras as a freshman.
