Despite interest growing from other NRL clubs, in-demand talent Luke Keary says he can't imagine ever leaving the club that finally gave him his opportunity.

NSW coach Laurie Daley has announced 22 up-and-coming players to take part in an emerging Blues camp in January.

Not all 22 are rookies, with Josh Jackson, Sione Mata'utia, Dylan Walker, Alex Johnston, David Klemmer and Josh Mansour having been called in the Kangaroos side for the recent Four Nations tournament.

"It's great we've got seven players from that [Kangaroos] squad," Daley said.

"They've never played Origin before and it's a great step up for them to come into our camp to see what New South Wales is all about. Hopefully they'll take a lot out of it."

Another noteworthy inclusion in the squad is South Sydney playmaker Luke Keary, whose selection points to a representative career in the sky blue of New South Wales after previously stating publicly his loyalty was with Queensland, where he spent the first nine years of his life.

"Luke's a wonderful young player. The way the rules are if he's going to play Origin it's going to be with New South Wales," Daley said.

"We think he's got the potential to play for the Blues. I've spoken to Luke and he's excited to be a part of the camp."

The one-day camp is staged to give players of significant potential an insight into what it takes to play State of Origin football for New South Wales. A number of aspects are covered including NSW players' physical and mental preparation and team culture.
