Latest on Zanoni (Greensboro Day) and Reeves (Cannon):
See that Jalen Hood-Schifino has decomitted from Pitt, though not expecting the one-time Northside player to consider us for his new destination.
Anyway, surprised to see that Niners apparently not involved in the Phenom Hoops Queen City Showcase in Rock Hill this past weekend. Hmm…
Per Patrick O’Brien, Niners showing interest in 6-9 PF Jai Smith of St. Thomas More School in Connecticut.
Expects Wake Forest to offer very soon. Translation for him: “Wake Forest if holding me in reserve in case the guy they want does not commit.”
Forbes definitely isn’t shy in making offers. Per Verbal Commits, Deacs have extended 70 players total in the 2021 and 2022 classes, with it split exactly 35 each. So far WFU has garnered one commitment for 2021.
Niners showing interest in 6-6 PG Donald Hand Jr. of Landstown HS (Virginia Beach, VA). Son of UVA great Donald Hand, Sr.

And highlights from recent 17u tournament in Myrtle Beach:
Just reading that Jai Smith - who is now at Bull City Prep Academy in Durham - is meeting virtually with FSU and Kansas today, so can figure Niners would be a longshot for his services.
