2020 Recruiting

Post by DoubleDipper on Sat Jun 03, 2017 8:00 pm

Seems like recruiting is starting earlier and earlier in this era of social media as a means of self-promotion and the larger budgets coaches have for recruiting travel, although I doubt either was at play in this young man's recruitment.

The first offer by UP for 2020 goes to Cheick Ouattara, a 15 year-old, 6-9 power forward from Bamako, Mali.

With one native of Mali, Tahirou Diabate, already on the roster it wouldn't be surprising if Ouattara would also like to be a Pilot in three years.

It's time to think about the graduation of McSwiggan and about Walker's and Shaver's senior year, I guess, as the Pilots made offers to sophomore teammates at Pacifica Christian Orange County High School in Newport Beach, California.

Judah Brown, a 6-6/175 wing from Bermuda Dunes and Dominic Harris, a good sized 6-3/165 point guard from Murrieta each have multiple offers as 15 year-olds, so there will undoubtedly be quite a few more schools in the mix before they each make a decision two years from now.

Cheick Ouattara, the 15 year-old, 6-9 power forward from Bamako, Mali is no longer being recruited by the Pilots.

In Hartwich's one-on-one conversation on Portside, he mentioned that he has a younger brother (15) who has relocated to the US. He is already 6'7" apparently and I presume has started playing basketball much earlier than Philipp. Is he on the radar?

Also, would that make him a 2020 or a 2021? This is normally DD's job. Laughing

Well, there were quite a few more offers for Dominic Harris, at least 12 D1 offers, but he decided he couldn't wait a couple of years to commit, so today he committed to Gonzaga!

Yeah, I've probably been neglecting the recruiting wars a bit lately, and know very little about Phil's "little" brother, 6-8 freshman (Class of 2021), Mo Hartwich.  

Mo goes to Class 2A Columbia Christian in Portland (the same school that Kameron Chatman graduated from when the school was Class 1A, and before he went to Michigan and then Detroit where his dad, UP grad Canaan Chatman, is an assistant).  As Mo is a freshman, I do not know if any schools are seriously looking at him at this point, nor do I know where he is on the depth chart.

In their classification, Columbia Christian really couldn't be doing better to this point in the season.  Overall they are 23-0 and they're 15-0 in Northwest League play.

Looks like Coach Porter offered Saxen sometime last week, making that his second D1 offer to go along with the earlier one from Pepperdine.
