Quade Green 6jpg

6′-1″ point guard Quade Green of Neumann-Goretti (PA) is unquestionably one of the top 5 point guards in his class nationally. The 2017 class overall is devoid of a deep talent pool of lead guards, making Green’s value even more significant in the class overall. On Sunday after capturing the FIBA Americas U18 gold in Chile, he “narrowed” his list of potential colleges to 13. The remaining colleges in the mix, as announced via Green’s Twitter …

2016 Hoop Summit: USA dominates


A loaded USA team steam-rolled the World squad in the 2016 Nike Hoop Summit, held in Portland, Oregon, winning 101-67. USA built a lead early in the first quarter and never looked back, as the World team’s guard play was insufficient to handle USA’s backcourt talent. API (TX) wing Terrance Ferguson (formerly committed to Alabama, but now considering several blue chip programs) was the MVP of the game in scoring 21 points on 7 shots from 3-point …

Post-Season Class of 2015 Player Rankings update


Due to perhaps an unprecedented number of reclassifications, it took awhile to put the final stamp on the Class of 2015 Top 100 player rankings. In fact, a check of the top 25 players on the final list indicates 3 prospects were in the Class of 2016 last year around this time. A handful of other late changes in class are sprinkled throughout our final list. What isn’t in dispute, at least for, is that …

Sharpshooter Kenny Williams connects with North Carolina


As a team arguably poised to be a contender for a pre-season No. 1 next year, the North Carolina Tar Heels have a talented roster set to return to Chapel Hill. Still, the departure of J.P. Tokoto to the professional ranks left a gap on the roster, and North Carolina wanted to add an additional player to next year’s team. They did so on Saturday with a verbal commitment from top-100 prospect Kenny Williams, a 6′-3″ shooting guard …

Jaylen Brown (adidas)

It’s safe to say California Golden Bears head coach Cuonzo Martin has been on a bit of a roller coaster ride over the last year or so. After an tenuous situation at Tennessee saw him jump to the west to take over in Berkeley, Martin has come up with two of the nation’s top 10 prospects in the 2015 recruiting cycle (his first full class at Cal), and is poised to have a pre-season top-15 …

In-state wing shooter Dominic Green picks Washington


After popping early for Arizona State, Hazen (WA) wing forward Dominic Green played out his senior season with the expectation he’d play Pac-12 hoops in Tempe. The change in coaches at Arizona State allowed for a change in plans for Green, as he re-opened his recruitment prior to consider new suitors. Green’s heart was close to his home, though, as he popped for the Washington Huskies, over Washington State, on Sunday. Green announced his decision via …

Iowa State nabs top 100 recruit Nick Noskowiak


In recent years, the Iowa State Cyclones have focused on talented transfers from four year schools to fill its roster holes and make a positive impact. Sunday’s verbal commitment of 6′-2″ point guard Nick Noskowiak of Sun Prairie (WI) departed from head coach Fred Hoiberg’s usual plan, though, as Noskowiak is a top 100 recruit nationally from the high school level. Noskowiak announced his pledge to Iowa State, via his Twitter account. Noskowiak signed with Marquette during …
