After July recruiting often changes in the priority of Players. Some drop down as new players become possibilities. I have heard that the top 3 on the recruiting list is 3 guards. (Guards are the major need for next season with 3 senior guards graduating.) Luguentz Dort is still at the top of the list. I saw him in Vegas and he would be at the top of my list. Word is he is thinking about the next step beyond college where he might need to be a point guard. Who better than bobby Hurley to teach him? College teams are also looking for more than one guard to bring the ball up the court. Oregon and Baylor are the competition. Next on the list is Keyshawn Embery from Midwest City OK. He is a 6'2" pt guard. His list is now ASU, Arkansas, Texas A&M and Butler. He played on the Under Armour circit so didn't see him play. The third guard is Bryce Hamilton who plays at Pasadena HS Ca. He is a 6'4" shooting guard who played for Belmont Shore at the Fab 48 in Vegas. I didn't see him but a friend watched him whose team is recruiting him. He brought his team back from a half time deficit to win the game. My friend raved about his play so I know he is a good one. He plans to visit ASU, Ohio St, Utah and Colo or Wash. Also maybe UNLV or Utah State. In November ASU would like to sign 2 of the 3 ideally. I am not a big fan of going so heavy on 3 players and backing off other options. If they get two of them that would be great but if not, then they may be left scrambling. They still like Jules Bernard on the next level but I saw him and really liked him. He is a 6'6" g/f who is at Windward Prep in Cal. He and Timmy Allen 6'6" g/f play for Compton Magic, an Adidas team. We are in Bernard's top 10 and aren't in Allen's top 5. In the spring they will decide if they want a guard, forward or ?. Also in the spring they may know if a 4th scholarship becomes available. In recruiting things are always in a flux. At some other time I May post about other younger players I saw in Vegas. I have posted about Kyree Walker who has committed to ASU but since he is a 2020 recruit, a lot can happen between now and the time he can sign.
