We knew Coach Legans liked to start building relationships with young ballers at an early age, and he continued that today by offering a couple of Florida 15 year-old freshmen their first college scholarships.

Kameren Wright 6-4 wing from Gainesville HS in Florida.

Isaiah Brown 6-3 point guard from Orlando Christian Prep in Florida.

By the uniform, it would appear he plays on the same club team as Kameren Wright.

He is not yet quite the 6-10 player StudentPilot was look for, but apparently Vuk Lazarević a 6-9 freshman PF going to Admiral Farragut Academy in St. Petersburg, Florida, has been offered by Coach Legans after returning from his trip to Serbia.

If that name sounds familiar, it might be because Vuk Lazarević was a Serbian prince born around 1380 who, after the Battle of Kosovo in 1839, and along with his siblings and mother, began to take part in the control of Serbia. In the Battle of Ankara in 1402, Vuk was part of the Ottoman vassal army of his brother against the Timurid Empire, but as I recall from my sophomore Eastern European History class at UP, the Timur won that one in OT.

Sadly, Vuk was executed in 1410 for betraying his older brother...

Sorry, this is the most current picture of Vuk I could find, although there is a video available of the 6-9 Vuk when he was no more than a skinny 6-footer.

This picture of Vuk Lazarevic is over 600 years newer than the one I posted earlier today:

2024 Recruiting Screen70

The Kid is Vazoumana 'Zoom' Diallo, a 6-2 freshman point guard at Curtis Senior High School in University Place, WA.

This video is too long, but it is a fun comeback by Curtis and Diallo against Timberline and sophomore Brooklyn Hicks (also offered by Portland).  #4 Hicks scored 36, but #15 Diallo had 19 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists in the 20 point comeback by Curtis, including a buzzer-beater.



Good to see no chins were exposed to COVID during this game... Razz

A few days ago UP offered Class of 2022 6-8 PF Jac Mani from Beverly Hills, and today the coaches apparently offered his brother, 6-4 SG Jon Mani...going into the 10th grade in the fall.     

Seems a good recruiting strategy that worked for Coach Legans at EWU.

Another kid who will be a 10th grader in the fall, 6-7 SF Jai Anthoni Bearden, from Glendale, Arizona has been offered by UP.  He's 15 years-old!

And yet another rising sophomore has received his first D1 offer from UP, 6-4 SG, Liam Campbell, now living in Idaho after moving from L.A.

This highlight video of Liam is from 2 years ago...when he was just 13 years-old!

6-10 or 6-11 (depends on the source) center Austin Maurer from Medford tells us he's received his first D1 offer from UP.

I have read a lot of positive reviews about young Austin after his summer of basketball in Arizona and would imagine some big-time colleges will be after him before too long.

Under new NCAA rules a high school prospect can now take 5 official visits in both their junior and senior years for a total of 10 (if they go to prep school after high school the can take another 5 visits), but there is apparently no restriction on the number of unofficial visits they can take…and Austin has so far apparently taken unofficial visits to Boise St. and Stanford.

Some might remember Austin’s dad, Marty, from when he was a big starting tight end at OSU a little over 20 years ago.  Austin's grandfather, Andy, played for the Ducks in the late 60's, as I recall, and then in the NFL for almost 10 years.

Marty Maurer at OSU:

2024 Recruiting Screen15

From what I can determine, UP has now offered six point guards for 2023 and with the recent offer to Ty Virgil, has now offered six point guard for 2024 too.

Virgil, a sophomore at Modesto Christian in California, is already 6-4 and expected to get quite a few more offers in the next three years.
