I am quoting GoPilots19 because he lists his location as the Portway Tavern and we are all going to have to buckle up while looking for a new tavern because the Portway was gutted by fire on Monday night, and it is unknown when or if it will open again for business.

What’s the status here, anyway? One scholarship opening for 2022 with Jack Perry graduating?

(And maybe plus the one that is already not filled)

You're right. I did not take the time to properly mourn the Portway blaze.

Although I was more of a T-room/Perch/Yorgo's kinda guy when I was at UP...

A sad day indeed! I put my location there because that was where I was spiritually taking in Pilots games these last few years, although I can't say I've found my way back since graduating. Was a great spot to be on a Friday or Saturday night as a Pilot, fingers crossed that it will eventually make a comeback!

Now under 2 months to go until early signing period and it's been fairly quiet beyond the news of the Jack Payne visit. As best as I can tell, here's all 2022 players the new staff has offered but are still uncommitted:

Not going to get: Lamar Washington, 6-4 guard originally from Portland but now in Arizona. Holds offers from numerous good high majors.

Tough competition: Dasean Lecque and Quincy McGriff. Lecque's other offers include from Tim Miles and our friend Ben Johnson at SJSU along with ASU, LMU, and Boston College. McGriff (Salt Lake CC) got an offer from Rick Pitino at Iona just a couple days ago with Texas A&M and Oral Roberts among his other offers.

As good a chance as anyone: Jac Mani, a 6-9 forward from Beverly Hills. Other offers from UC Riverside, Bradley, UC Davis, Howard, Denver, Cal Poly, and Montana. I think the Pilots were his first D1 offer (June 18). DD has a highlight clip for him on the first page of this thread.

Others: Three 2022 players appear to have been offered by the Pilots only. Braeden Smith (6-0 from Seattle Prep), Shane Thomas (6-4 from Durango HS in Vegas), and Jayden Stevens (6-7 from Gonzaga Prep in Spokane). Smith may or may not have a UC Davis offer as well. As for Stevens, the last 6-7 forward the Pilots got from Gonzaga Prep turned out to be pretty darn good!

Going elsewhere: Tyler Linhardt (Washington), Oziyah Sellers (USC), Jack Payne (?).

I would not completely rule out Lamar Washington...

Sure, it would be quite a shock to many if he were to commit to UP, and although he is attending AZ Compass Prep in Phoenix, he did attend Portland's Jefferson High, and perhaps he would like to play in front of the hometown folks and become an essential cornerstone in the rebuilding of the Pilots program.

I do not think UP is interested in Lecque any longer, but considering McGriff's size as a point guard, he may be of great interest to UP in the spring, but not this fall.  It depends upon his availability and the development of UP's current back court, including Yaru Harvey.

Recruits are really liking UP’s coaching staff, but without a winning season since 2014-15 (ranked 134), the Pilots are being killed by rival school’s negative pitch about UP basketball.  The negativity is well deserved, and until there are wins, it may be awhile before recruits start considering UP as a destination.

Well he would certainly eclipse Kevin Bailey and Marcus Shaver as the most coveted player to pick UP during my time following the Pilots.
