Jim we are very grateful and pleased by all that You and Your Coaches at “Blue Chip” All-Stars have done for our daughter Molly. We wish to acknowledge the positive impact your Camps and the Travel Teams at Blue Chip All-Stars had on Molly! From the perspective of “on court” development, by attending the “Blue Chip” All-Stars Camps each of the summers proceeding her Sophomore, Junior and Senior years, she did develop New Skills and Embrace the importance of rounding out her game. The competition was certainly Challenging and the Exposure to Many Colleges and other Coaches were invaluable. Because of the Exposure at “Blue Chip” Molly had so many offers from too many Colleges to count, thanks to you and the “Blue Chip” All-Stars she signed to play her College Career with Belmont University!

I just wanted to let you know how much I loved participating with all the “Blue Chip” events! The Tournaments and Camps were so much fun and I enjoyed all of them so much while improving my game against great talented players! Without the Opportunity i would have had the Exposure I received to get the many College Offers that came from the Camps and Travel Teams! I had many offers from great colleges, I decided to sign with the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga to continue my basketball and education! Mr. Underwood I love you and “Blue Chip” and everything it’s about!

Erica Hallman, Player

Without the Exposure and Fundamentals I received at “Blue Chip” All-Stars I would not have had the opportunity to play at the Prestigious University of Kansas. Thanks to Jim Underwood and the Staff there I was recruited by multiple Universities across the Nation. I graduated and am now working in Washington. I will always be grateful for the Underwood family and the staff at “Blue Chip”, I recommend any player who wishes to play at the next level “Blue Chip” is a must for you to attend!
Robert Queen, Parent
My daughter grew in Confidence and Maturity and Improved as a basketball player as a result of her experience with Jim Underwood, His Family and The Blue Chip Camps this past summer. The camps were Disciplined and Structured, well Organized and Supervised. The coaching was Insightful, Instructive and Encouraging. The talent level of the campers and the game experience were such that Emily was pushed to the limits of own skills and came away a better player.
Stacy Pendleton, Head Coach DuPont Manual High School
After attending the Blue chip High Exposure Camp, our student athletes received many letters and offers from different colleges at all levels! Five of our kids attended the Blue Chip High Exposure Camp. It benefited them greatly by attending the Camp; All of them had a great time and came back with increased confidence and improvement in their abilities! Three of our players have already committed to play Division 1 Basketball next year. I would recommend any student athlete interested in playing at the next level and to improve their game they should attend the Underwood’s Blue Chip All-Stars High Exposure Camps.

The Coaches are great and the camp affords every player more exposure to prospective college coaches than you can get anywhere.

I had an awesome experience at the Blue Chip High Exposure Camp playing against the Top Players not only in Kentucky but also in the Nation. I was able to work on and improve my skills in a relaxed but competitive setting with great coaches. That has helped me with my game! Blue Chip is the Best! I have had many colleges inquires since going to Blue Chip!
Lydia Watkins, Rated in the top 10 Juniors in Kentucky; Selected to the Junior “Elite” All-Stars.
In 2003 I attended the Blue Chip Camp. The camp had players from many states and foreign countries as well. I really enjoyed the camp and learned a lot but was disappointed that I did not make the top 40. I was given advice on how to improve my game in order to be Marketable to College Coaches. Thanks to Blue Chip I made changes to my game, in August of 2004, I committed to the University of Kentucky. The Underwoods’ and Blue Chip provide service long after the camp was over!

“Blue Chip” Basketball Camp, has produced 3 D-l college players (Kiki Radford, Derrica Jones and Shaleea Petty), plus one oral commitment to the University of Kentucky (Lydia Watkins), and one player that has college offers to any University in the Country (Arnika Brown).

“Blue Chip Camp was the “icing on the cake” in camp experience for our daughter. Most colleges that Lydia had interest in were present, and she was able to sign early with one of them, Kentucky Wesleyan! Excellent staff was on hand, the schedule was well planned for the week, and there were young ladies from near and far, including one international student! I highly recommend Blue Chip for your daughter. It’s truly the “ultimate” and for small cost!”

It was truly the best camp experience my daughter had and we highly recommend it for anyone’s daughter wishing to play college ball!”
