Purdue University guard Carsen Edwards’ stock as one of the nation’s best players continues to rise.

Edwards, who was earlier named the top returning NCAA March Madness player by NCAA.com’s Andy Katz, has now been invited to two elite camps: The CP3 Camp and the Nike Basketball Academy.

The CP3 camp, run by Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul, is Wednesday through Saturday at Wake Forest University and features 20 college guards and 30 high school players. Paul oversees the skills development camp, which will also include current and former NBA coaches.

Edwards will also be part of 20 college players at the Nike Basketball Academy next week in Thousand Oaks, Calif. That camp, which included LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Kevin Love and Amare Stoudamire on staff last year, focuses on “The Mind, the Body and the Game.”

Edwards, who will be a junior this season, averaged 18.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists for the 30-7 Boilermakers last season. He declared for the NBA Draft process but decided to return to Purdue.

He is the only player in Purdue history to log 650 points, 100 rebounds and 100 assists in a single season.
