Welcome Isaiah! I remember watching your Dad play.June 14, 2019 at 9:59 am #92648
Bishop Gorman is kind of a regular in the Wheeling Cancer
Classic and played two games last year. Haven’t seen a
schedule for this year as of yet. Hope they’re in it so we
can see Cottrell play. Can’t remember anything about
last year’s game.June 14, 2019 at 10:11 pm #92660
Great start to the 2020 recruiting lineup. I would think that there will be 5 slots to fill this class. SR’s Haley, Harler, Routt and my guess 2 more will leave. There are always a couple that decide to move on. The portal makes it easier for players to move.
My uneducated guess is we bring in 2 PF’s, 1 Wing, 1 big SG, 1 true PG.
With Cottrell already in the house we could bring in a player that needs development. Obinna???? Hugley???? Omoruyi would be a steal and provide immediate paint help should Culver or OT leave. Dianja’s name had been mentioned many times earlier this year. His stock has sky rocketed from the beginning of 2019. Johnson would be another great get and Coleman although little undersized but could be SF player.
Wing outlook has a number of very high rated players. Bridges once was said to be a lock, but not so at this time. Playing at Scottland Prep to improve his stock. Timberlake, Langford are all guys that could be Wing/SG types.
SG, should take Ethan Morton off the list. He’s a hard commit to Purdue. Early is reported to slimmed down from his MLB body type. Don’t know if it’s true or not. We’re in with a number of SG’s. Beard and Stevens are higher ranked. Suggs, another MN recruit (can McCabe influence him?) would be the best get.
PG has a few great recruits. We are tight with Curbelo but may have to have a wrestling death match with StJohn’s to get him out of NYC. Nix would be the biggest coup (could fellow LasVegas resident Cottrell influence him?) but most likely he will go to Kansas and be there for 2 at most.
Most likely we will bring in at least 1 JC in this class. These guys always start to pop up early in the season.June 14, 2019 at 11:08 pm #92662
Isaiah’s Mom, Shannon, was a stand-out athlete at Parkersburg South High School.June 15, 2019 at 11:24 am #92701
Doesn’t hurt if Mom and Dad both have ties to WVU and WV. Mom gets to come back home often to see family and watch Isaiah play.
Nothing said if Mom and Dad are still together and if not are both living in LasVegas? Doesn’t really pertain to his recruitment, but just an interesting thought.June 15, 2019 at 12:48 pm #92703
They are not.June 15, 2019 at 10:42 pm #92717
They are not, but Shannon’s Mom Lou Ann still lives in the P’burg area, I believe in Little Hocking OH. Shannon’s Dad Tony was an outstanding runner and passed away from cancer several yr ago.June 17, 2019 at 8:20 am #92777
Thanks for the info, Larry! Clearly a lot of athletic talent on both sides of the family.June 17, 2019 at 2:21 pm #92814
SIAP, here’s an article about Brian Lewin.June 18, 2019 at 6:20 am #92833
I believe that another wing- type player from the JUCOs would be a good addition to this year’s team. From what I’ve read Huggins wants to return to the full-court press this year. This requires bodies to run it. Normally the team picks up additional fouls in that defense. That’s what surprised me about Carter, he was almost playing within an opposing player’s hip pocket yet was normally able to avoid being disqualifiedJune 18, 2019 at 9:53 am #92858
That is the target, and can expect to hear something along those lines next month.
