Donyae McCaskill has "reclassified" and will spend a year at Link Year Prep, the same school the Pilots' guard Chase Adams attended...and the Pilots once again have 13 scholarship players for 2019-20.

PG - Walker, Ferebee, Adams

SF - White, Fahrensohn
PF - Tryon, Diabate, Phillips
C - Hogland, Akwuba, Collinsworth

Didn't play at all last year due to wrist surgery, but was a big contributor on a not-so-good VMI team back in 2017-18 (10.4 points, 4.7 rebounds per game). 6-4, 190 with one season left and plays at a position of need for next year's Pilots. Looks like Siena is also targeting him, he visited there last weekend.
I have no idea if UP ever made Austin Vereen an offer, but apparently Vereen found Stockton and Coach Stoudamire to his liking as he committed to UOP yesterday...

It seems like Vereen and Harewood are similar players in terms of what they can bring to the table? Just speculating but it would seem likely that the Pilots would only be on the market for one of the two

From what I gather, they were both being recruited by Coach Cantu... Rolling Eyes
Checking on the Valpo grad-transfers, Evelyn and Golder, they both landed elsewhere.

Golder, the Clackamas High and Valparaiso grad, was apparently thought to not be the "best fit" for UP, and ended up at Portland State.

Evelyn, the better athlete and player of the two, was apparently turned away by UP because of his "suspect ankles," and is now at Iowa.

It will be interesting to see how each performs this coming season...

Going back through this thread, it's interesting to note how many of Coach Cantu's prospects were NOT signed...the only one is Cody Collinsworth.

That is interesting about Coach Cantu's targets, I wonder if that's common in situations like this? It would seem logical in the sense that if I was a recruit of Coach Cantu's I would be a little worried about going to the place that just fired him.

Presumably they met TP and he also expressed an interest. scratch

True, but I've read a few articles indicating that it is mostly the assistants talking to recruits and building relationships with them. The head coach is often only brought in to seal the deal.

After a whirlwind of recruitment by some outstanding programs, Niven Glover signed with Fresno State!

It would seem UP's interest, and the interest of all the high-major schools disappeared when Glover's coach described him as "selfish" and a "team cancer."

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...
Originally planning to walk-on at UP, RJ instead decided to play at St. Martin's, but now he'll be much closer to his home in Woodburn after enrolling at Western Oregon and joining the basketball team to play for first-year head coach, Wes Pifer.  (Former UP assistant, Jim Shaw, left WOU during the offseason to be an assistant at WSU.)

It was "picture day" this week, and it's great to see the new #10 in uniform...

We don't yet know how his skills will translate at the D1 level, but I can tell you for sure his great attitude will translate anywhere!

Cody Collinsworth is a 7-0 post who has garnered interest from several high major schools.  According to the Gonzaga and LSU fan forums, Gonzaga was the first on him and many followed suit including, TCU, LSU, Arizona State, Maryland, Kansas St., Oklahoma St., and others, but his only known offers are from TCU, Air Force, and Northwestern St.
Cody might be a "raw talent," but as they say, "you can't teach size!"

Word is grad-student Isaiah White has been showing he's the on-court team leader the Pilots have so desperately needed since Phil and Alec were seniors during TP's first season on The Bluff...and this is now his 4th!
