Scroll all the way to the very bottom. It's from six years ago, but look at who Hoop Scoop has as the #1 ranked player in the NATION in the Class of 2018 (and one spot ahead of Marvin Bagley of the Sacramento Kings).

If he's as good as 2017 (DeAndre Ayton), I hope we get him.

Could coach Cantu get Chase Adams listed? Is there any retro engineering?

Little brother of D'Marques, I'm pretty sure. Shot the absolute crap out of the ball for Idaho this year as a freshman. He'd have to sit one year but would then play three, and I'd have to think he'll at least get some looks from P12 schools with the numbers he put up this year.

If not...there's a gaping hole on the Pilots depth chart at SG that he'd certainly slot into nicely. Might be a pipe dream at this point after how good of a year he had, though.

Great kid, great parents too...I have to believe the staff know about him, but as McCaskill and Collingsworth will likely redshirt next season, it's doubtful they'll want a player who will have to sit a year.

I think the "Valpo Boys," Bakari Evelyn and Markus Golder could also be a good fit.  Both will be grad transfers from Valparaiso, both would fill gaps in the lineup, and both could fill the leadership void...oh, and Golder is a Clackamas HS grad.

He averaged 6 points a game, which makes him a potential student athlete the Pilöts might gain a commitment from. But of course from my perspective, it would be difficult to obtain less from the small forward position.

I think you found his last year's stats, when he played with former Pilot guard Andre Ferguson.

Garrick Green (6-6, 210) had impressive numbers this year for Howard College - leading scorer (17.2 PPG) and leading rebounder (8.2 RPG). Earned all-region honours for Howard, and most of the other all-Region 5 players appear to be off to D1 schools.

Checking various blogs and social media, it would appear Garrick is considering staying closer to his Louisiana home...can't blame him for that.

Hopefully the UP staff pointed out to him that one of UP best-ever players also came from Baton Rouge...Cincy Powell

Seems to me it's now the combined "Quiet/Dead Period" in the 10 days around Final Four weekend, so it will be awhile before Garrick can visit any more campuses, but as we know, unlike high school kids, JUCO players are often in no hurry to commit anyway...

I am happy for you Dean that you are a fan of the Simpsons.

But you are here off base. My initial comment is in his reference to last's year's starter at the 3, which remains true no matter who we sign. Stating that we could not do worse when assuming even lower statistics than apparently were the case for that potential recruit was reference to last year's starter. Then learning that the recruit had higher stats than anticipated was good reason to root for his taking seriously the Pilot offer.

But alas, no such luck. Whether the staff and Porter can land recruits that will help the squad is of real concern to any fan of the Pilots.

Exactly, something we need more of around here when it comes to basketball.

BTW, Green is still considering UP, but he's also looking closer to home...Southeastern Louisiana and Louisiana Tech are showing interest...

The combined "quiet/dead period" began on April 1 and ends at noon this coming Thursday, but apparently Bakari Evelyn and Markus Golder visited UP March 29-31.  

From what I gather, they were both being recruited by Coach Cantu... Rolling Eyes

With Jerry Stackhouse taking over at Vanderbilt today, grad-transfers Evelyn and Golder may decide to pull their names from the Transfer Portal before the signing period begins in nine days....

This thread needs a little spring-cleaning...

Cody Collinsworth and Donyae McCaskill have signed, and JUCO SF Garrick Green from Baton Rouge, high school PG Chase Adams from Chicago, and JUCO Wing Sean Miller-Moore from "not up there," but "over there," or even down there (thanks Deaner) around Mississauga, in Brampton, Ontario are still on UP's radar as possible signees this month.

Clarence Jackson, the prep school kid from Georgia, has decided to attend JUCO Polk State College, and contrary to Verbal Commits list of offers, UP is no longer looking at Jawaun Daniels and Chol Marial.  Nick Blake who we've listed on this thread, has reclassified to 2020 by attending prep school.

I’m confident UP is looking at or has offered scholarships to players that are NOT in this thread or listed on Verbal Commits, and as mentioned before, Valpo grad-transfers PG Bakari Evelyn and SG Markus Golder were spotted on campus at the end of March....and they could be a huge help to the young and leaderless UP team.

Highly unlikely!

TP has stated he's looking to sign grad-transfers and JUCO players.

Regardless, there are really no unsigned or uncommitted D1 caliber players left on either the Oregon or Washington squads except for one Washington kid who has offers from UK, Texas, and UCLA.

Two of the Washington players are headed to GU as part of what could be GU's best recruiting class ever...and there are at least two UW recruits and a Michigan recruit among the players.  The only local player staying local, that I know of, is going to PSU.

On the girls teams, one of the Oregon girls is LMU bound, and the Washington squad has one player headed to SCU and anther to LMU.

He wasn't on the Northwest Shootout roster, but it looks like the Pilots have offered RJ Veliz from Woodburn a spot as a walk-on.

With point guards Brian Smith and Xavier Hallinan both moving on, RJ will be a welcome addition to the "scout" team and could eventually earn some playing time.

Word is RJ is a 4.0 student and has earned a Presidential Scholarship at UP...

The LOI signing period begins tomorrow (4/17)….and the questions are, how many open scholarships are available, and is UP actively recruiting any freshmen?

If, as rumored, Josh Phillips does not return, there are presumably four open scholarships.

Are signees Collinsworth and McCallister still intending to come to UP after their recruiter, Coach Cantu, was dismissed?  Yes, they are bound by the LOI they each signed in November, but it would be stupid for the staff to hold them to that if they've changed their minds.

TP describes McCallister as VERY athletic, but more of a defensive specialist coming out of high school...(another Rashad Jackson?), and TP tells us the 7-foot Collinsworth can protect the rim, play back to the basket, and also shoot the 3-ball.

UP has only one known offer to a high school player, 5-6 point guard Chase Adams, and there have been visits by at least two grad-transfers and two JUCO guys, and apparently more are being scheduled...so it's really anybody's guess if we'll see any UP signing activity this week.

When the dust settles, it looks like UP could have six new scholarship players and at least one new walk-on next season...
