Since the recruiting coverage for basketball isn't that great, I decided to write up a little thing about who we're recruiting. the 2019 cycle is at its end, so there is no discussion of that... We all know the one target left in that class..


2020
Taking 4 unless J'Raan Brooks or someone else transfers in.
Will get
Marjon Beauchamp SG/SF 6’6” Rainier Beach
Posted some cryptic shit on twitters about not having a favorite and his recruitment being open. That being said, UW is the heavy favorite and everyone knows it. Great handles and a good shooter. Crazy length

Isaiah Cottrell PF 6’9” Bishop Gorman
Assistant Coach Dave Rice’s brother coaches BG, Rice has the Vegas connections from his time at UNLV, I think we get whoever we want from BG while he’s an assistant here. Solid post player that will continue to improve, 4 year guy.

Hopefully get
Daishen Nix 6’5” PG Trinity International Schools (Vegas)
Originally from Alaska of all places, best PG on the West Coast. Amazing passer and an improving shooter. Said UW is recruiting him the hardest.

Kendall Munson 6’8” PF/SF Rainier Beach
Offered after the state tourney while playing for Puyallup, would have had him listed as a backup until Strawther committed to the Zags. Isn’t really ranked since he was out hurt his sophomore year. He should see a huge jump in the rankings after AAU season.

Backups
Lamont Butler 6’2” PG Polytechnic (Riverside)
Hop has been recruiting him for a while, had an official visit, but they seem to be slow playing him. Great ball handler and passer, but he’s not as good as Nix overall. Would be awesome as a 4 year guy. He’ll come here if Nix doesn’t.

Noah Taitz 6’3” SG Bishop Gorman
BTP hates him, so he’ll probably hit a game winning shot against us someday.

Mitchell Saxen 6’10” C Ingraham
Center that stretches the floor, rebounds decent, and blocks some shots.
Random Hopkins follow on Twitter

Cade Cunningham 6’6” SF Montverde Academy
8th ranked player in the class, no clue if he has an offer or anything.

2021
Will Get
Paolo Banchero 6’10” PF O’Dea
Both parents went to UW, family is close with Jen Cohen’s family, offered as a freshman. I believe that Hopkins has some kind of rule about accepting commitments early, I’d say he’s unofficially committed.

Shane Nowell 6’5” SG Eastside Catholic
Plays a lot like Jaylen but he’s a lefty and slightly taller. He was at pretty much every home game, and have heard that the staff is recruiting him HARD.

Others
Anyone other than the previous two will depend on how the numbers work out. As of now it looks like we’ll need to take 3, but that could easily end up being 4. I wont bother too much with details about each of them. Offers to all the Bishop Gorman guys in this class..

Franck Kepnang 6’10/11” C Westtown School (PA)
Offered early, Hops Northeast connections at work here.

Jaden Hardy 6’4” PG Coronado (Henderson NV)
Offered, top 5 player in the class, really fucking good.

Zaon Collins 6’1” PG Bishop Gorman
Offered, top 50 guy

John Christofilis 6’4” SG O’Dea
Offered

Will McClendon 6’3” SG Bishop Gorman
Offered

Jackson Grant, 6'10" PF from Olympia High School received an offer and more importantly a Coach Hop twitter follow over the weekend.

    I will cry if we get a 2021 class of Hardy/McClendon, Paolo, Shane, and Collins.
  • To clarify.. the random twitter follow line was in reference to cunningham, not saxen

    Great write up

    I think the key for Hop will be balancing classes with 1-2 year players with guys that will be 3-4 year players

    I agree

    It will be interesting to watch or why when people wonder why we don’t take this guy or that guy ... there are often reasons why

    Great post. I really appreciate knowing Hopkins’ targets. During his time at SU, Hopkins became SU’s primary recruiter and is very charismatic. He’ll get the Huskies competitive on the national stage and hopefully for a national championship. Somewhere on your list is a team that will be special. Which year do you think will be that team?

    Since the recruiting coverage for basketball isn't that great, I decided to write up a little thing about who we're recruiting. the 2019 cycle is at its end, so there is no discussion of that... We all know the one target left in that class..
