Michigan basketball point guard Trey Burke selected to play in Chris Paul's elite guard camp
Trey Burke's meteoric rise as an elite-level point guard caught the attention of more than a few basketball dignitaries -- collegiate and professional.
Add NBA star Chris Paul to that list.
Burke, a Michigan basketball sophomore point guard, was selected to take part in Paul's "CP3 Elite Guard Camp" this weekend in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Paul, an All-Star point guard with the Los Angeles Clippers , has developed a reputation for hosting some of the best college guards each summer for a skills camp. He announced the list via Twitter on Thursday.
Notable attendees last year were Wisconsin's Jordan Taylor, North Carolina's Kendall Marshall and Memphis' Will Barton.
The invite-only camp runs from June 8-11.
The 5-foot-11 Burke, a 2011 co-Big Ten Freshman of the Year, will be joined by a few familiar faces this weekend, including Ohio State point guard Aaron Craft and Ohio point guard D.J. Cooper -- who was instrumental in helping the Bobcats knock off the Wolverines during the 2012 NCAA Tournament.
Other notables scheduled to attend the event are Detroit's Ray McCallum, Duke's Seth Curry and Louisville's Peyton Siva.
