Class of 2018 MBB recruiting thread

#81

Eric Bossi of Rivals makes the case for players who may crack the top 150, including Niner targets Trey McGowens and Tyrese Haliburton.

[FWIW, list includes Nate Hinton, Aaron Nesmith and Duane Washington Jr. - all offered by Niners but most likely HM bound at this point]

Haliburton probably not happening either, has set 4 visits IIRC and we aren’t one.

Reading on Verbal Commits that 6-10 PF Colin Castleton of Father Lopez Catholic HS in Daytona Beach, FL has removed us from consideration and is now finalizing his final six (per VC, FSU, Illinois, and Purdue still in the mix). Looks like we were one of his first D-I offers a little over a year ago.

Not much about us with him after the offer that I can recall.

From what I glanced over, sounds like he went from a MM prospect to HM over the summer. And FWIW, his final list is actually eight - Baylor, Florida, FSU, Illinois, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Purdue.

2k, also see that 6-0 PG Drue Drinnon of Athens, GA will be playing his senior year at Nova Southeastern University School in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Looks like UGA, GT, Wake, Ole Miss, South Florida and Florida Gulf Coast are still in the mix for him.

Per Verbal Commits, Monroe has committed to Providence.[/quote]
Just reading that 2018 6-7 PF Jimmy Nichols Jr. of Conway HS (S.C.) has committed to Providence as well. Not sure if he had been on our radar or not but interesting that the Friars continue to cull the Carolinas for recruits.

He had a pretty impressive list of offers.

2k, thanks! Agree that we probably weren’t on HIS radar! FWIW, Nichols chose Providence over South Carolina and Miami-FL.
