Figure a different thread may be needed to help spare the people who only check in here once every two weeks from having to sift through irrelevant stuff in the recruiting and VIP threads. Will try to keep the irrelevant stuff here instead lol.
Going to start with two entries that are not @Hooandtrue dream recruits but someone else’s maybe
I saw a UVA fan on the 247 board (rickfinhoo) talk about how his wishes UVA would recruit Jason Rivera.
Jason Rivera is currently at John Marshall in the Richmond area (Williford’s high school I believe) but was originally at Iona Prep (Ty Jerome’s school I think). Also he plays a character in Kevin Durant’s apple tv show “Swagger” which is kinda cool.
6’6 Big ball handling wing. Not bouncy by any means but a tough kid.
Helped his team upset Columbus (Boozer brothers that beat PVI a few weeks ago). I saw Max Preps actually has John Marshall in Richmond as the #1 team in the country when you take out the Montverde/IMG prep schools. They might be the best team in the state, including PVI and Oak Hill.
I remember @Collins mentioning he has watched Boogie Fland several times. Kid is a stud and will end up at either Duke/UNC/Kentucky or G League.
No idea if any of the local schools can pull the upset. Rutgers is trying with both Boogie and Dylan Harper Jr (who many think will end up at Duke. His dad even tweeted a “Duke is next” response to Tipton’s “UNC gets a big commitment from Elliot Cadeau” tweet)
Jaiden Glover at the Patrick School in New Jersey. Seen him listed at 6’4 and 6’6 numerous times so let’s call him 6’5. 3pt shooting wing but also a secondary ball handler. Has put up some incredible shooting numbers over the last month (Palm City tournament in Florida and Holiday Classic in New York). But he’s also pretty explosive in the open court, even if his half court game is more probing and quick hitting 3s.
He’s on the same AAU team as Christian Bliss (NY Renaissance) so there is a good chance Tony and staff check him out anyways during the spring live period. He’s a kid whose play has definitely started to pick up following the aau season. Also a kid who has a few clips of him playing on black tops which is now a criteria I look for lol. This is the kind of wing I prefer over Kon; one who can be thatd 3rd ball handler but also has the athleticism and length to be that lockdown defender while providing 3pt shooting.
