The powerhouse Camden High School boys basketball team, led by No. 1-ranked national recruit D.J. Wagner, could face serious and wide-ranging penalties when it appears before an investigative committee from the state's governing body for high school sports next month, NJ Advance Media has learned. The public school stands accused of loading its basketball roster with star players and top recruits from across New Jersey who did not reside in Camden. If found guilty of wrongdoing, the state could take the unusual and severe step of stripping the team of its 2022 state championship and banning Camden from the 2023 postseason, according to a source familiar with the process.
