Just saw on the VT board that they have no idea who this guy is either, but just noticed they are in his top 5.

This is a bit old, but maybe he just jumped onto the scene

Another old link. It sounds like his game really grew this year (especially in the second half). I like hearing the kid has soccer skills, should have good balance and light feet.

I was searching for info on him, and apparently a 2022 Dayton target is Ramel Lloyd Jr.

Man, I feel old.

The fact that Yoppin just visited Dayton and has not been to SJU is all you need to know it seems.

Are we sure he definitely wants to follow his brother? He’s got offers from better schools. Sounds like a late bloomer that schools really jumped on now. Agree the fact that he visited Dayton officially seems important but might not be all-telling. SJU really recruiting under he radar with CMA and Co. Refreshing to see us actually scouting HS kids again and having a staff scouring for talent. Will be even more fun in future classes where the staff has a bit of a running start, not just scrambling for late gems.

If his brother stays then UD will be interesting next year. Lost only one significant piece (Cunningham) who was their leading rebounder and second-leading scorer after Obi Toppin. If Obi stays pro, I think UD becomes less attractive though. At that point, they have lost about 1/3 of their scoring and rebounding presence. I am not saying that makes us more attractive, but without Obi and Cunningham UD will have to find a new set of go-to guys. Having missed any postseason tournaments last year, losing both of these guys doesn't make the prospects of a postseason appearance next year look favorable. He may go anyway. His brother had a good experience. UD is a pretty nice campus, even if Dayton is a freaking armpit. (Plus Zombie Dogz is right across the street - I love me some Zombie dogs - Germanators are incredible). If he chooses it though, it isn't because it has the makings of a major basketball desitination next season (unless Obi returns).

The kid is ~2 years younger than his brother and may be developing 'late' like his brother has.
Interesting, out-of-the-blue prospect.
Would think he chooses Dayton IF his brother, Obi. returns.
But who knows...

They were a pretty late offer too. Maybe he wasn’t happy they waited so long.
