Someone to keep an eye on. Per his coach, UMass has contacted him.

Definitely a player on the rise. Would be a big get! Some big schools have reached out after initially getting minimal attention on the recruiting trail.

As of now (without more opening up which will more than likely be the case), how many scholarships do we have available in 2020?

^ We have 1 senior, Baptiste. Will others open up, probably, but I would hope not many this year.

Another 2020 offer. 6-8 or 6-9, 245 lb PF/C.

5/29/19 There are few players in the 2020 class that have made the strides in their game that Overland big man Graham Ike has in the past two years. The 6’8 post has improved every facet of his game and has turned himself into a legit big man with multiple D1 offers.

So hopefully we will only have 1-2 scholarships to give out next year. Here’s a quick list of guys we have been rumored to have interest in (there are others but I only went with more recent names:

Guards:
Daillion Johnson
Kam Farris
Keshawn Barthelemy
Marty Silvera

Forwards:
Matt Cross
Dyondre Dominguez
Ronnie DeGray
Terrell Ard

Bigs:
Graham Ike

There are others I’m sure. Based on absolutely nothing I think we we will have two spots to fill and it’s gonna be Dominguez and Johnson.

^ Chances are that someone will transfer out before the 2020-21 season starts, but I suspect McCall will be hesitant to accept more than 1 commitment in the early period unless he knows specifically who will transfer.

I think you're right about Dominguez, he seems to be the most likely early signee, at least at this juncture. He'll be at Woodstock this year, and he and his father seem to be big fans of Tony Bergeron.

Saw we offered that Cairo McCrory kid who is playing at Woodstock this year so add him to the list. Sounds like he can play a little bit.

Also some kid named Dylan Wusu out of New York was just offered. No idea who he is but add him to the list also apparently.

We would like to welcome 6’8 class of 2020 wing @BendjiPierre4. With an impressive skill set, he’s a high major talent w/ offers from Coppin State & UMass (as per @AyalewAdam Nov. 2018). Bendji will be running with our 17U squad this July
Not sure if we are still pursuing him as we offered in 2017. He returned to NJ from Springfield Commonwealth Academy.

Regarding 2020 scholarships, don’t we know for sure there will be 2 at a minimum with Baptiste and KTM both being out of eligibility?
