Recent comments from Evans and Zags clearly show that Matt & Coach Mullin are busting their butts recruiting for 2019 and 2020. The fact that Evans has us as top contenders for three 5 star 2019 studs (Lewis, Achiuwa & Igiehon) is very encouraging. Signing any one of these guys would be absolutely huge for the program. Getting MH eligibility waiver approved would really move SJU program momentum through the roof. Here's hoping...

Per Corey Evans;


The marquee contest in Atlanta on Wednesday evening will pit four five-star prospects from the 2019 class against one another. Team Rio, boasting the talents of top-30 prospects Aidan Igiehon, Scottie Lewis and Bryan Antoine, will square off against KC Run GMC, which features top-10 big man Jeremiah Robinson-Earl and top-50 guard Zach Hervey.

The two teams will go at it at the Under Armour Challenge, where there will be no shortage of head coaches in attendance. Talk this week is that many coaches will begin their time in Atlanta before making the two-hour drive to North Augusta for the remaining part of the weekend. This should make the Team Rio versus KC Run GMC game one of the most-watched games during the first live period.

My bet is we will see head coaches from Duke, Arizona, Kansas, Kentucky, Florida, Villanova, Harvard, Creighton, Kansas State, Oregon, Pitt, Georgetown, UConn, Stanford, Louisville, St. John’s, UNC, Oklahoma, UCLA and Wake Forest in attendance. No other game during the first live period will draw more attention from top head coaches.

Mullin will be in Atlanta

Thanks Paultz. This Board has 'high hopes' thanks to your steady servings of 'buzz' of St. John's scouting our top targets on the recruiting trail.
It's one well-coordinated effort by the Staff.
Can't recall having such 'high hopes' in a long time.
Thanks again.

Staff has worked hard, but it will a battle to land guys like Iggy, Kofi, Lewis, Precious and Whitney. We could be in final 5 imo for a few guys & get in home visits. However competition is fierce for all these players and frankly we are not exactly a “destination program” yet. I would not be shocked if we land a prime kid, but it is also possible we fan on all those kids.

To their credit staff has not put all eggs in one basket, including lower level guys like Ledlum for example. Rather than getting too excited about our prospects with anyone, let’s see what in home visits we garner & go from there. Just being a realist!

Oh I agree Paultz, that "competition is fierce...and...we are not exactly a "destination program"..." and "it is possible we fan on all those kids" or as you say, "...not be shocked if we land a prime kid."
The exciting thing is that we're solidly in the mix with a few of these kids and also have Plan B's in the works.
I do not recall that too often in the past.
Exciting times that may become even better.
Que sera sera.

Per Court Cred:
Duke, UNC, Florida, Pitt, St Johns, UGA, Louisville all on Court 7 for Team Rio & KC GMC. Scottie Lewis just closed out the 3rd with a flurry of smart plays. His ball skills & feel for the game are in 10 right now #UAchallenge
