Jarrett Culver grew up attending basketball camps.

The former Lubbock resident knew how great of an impact they had on him as a young athlete and wanted to offer that same opportunity to others.

He got his chance earlier in the week.

The current Minnesota Timberwolves guard, and former Texas Tech basketball star, along with The Culver Foundation hosted an inaugural Jarrett Culver Camp that started Monday and runs through Thursday.

“It means the world to me that my family, The Culver Foundation and a lot of other people came together to help build this camp,” said Culver, who played for the Red Raiders from 2017-2019. “I’m just glad I got to do this camp in Lubbock, where I grew up. 

“It means the world to me to be able to come back and give all the fans and everybody that’s a part of the Lubbock community the support that they’ve given me.”
