  • 2017 Recruits & how they're performing

    CAE and his staff have a tremendous eye for talent and this has already been proven with the players they've brought into the program. But what always sticks out is the production of the players that ALMOST ended up as a Trojans and seeing how they're performing for their respected programs. Also goes to show you the level of talent that the staff are now focused on.

    5* F Marvin Bagley III: Picked Duke over USC (really no surprise here)
    18 ppg, 9 rpb, 62% FG, 38.9% FT's - his percentage on the charity strip is a bit surprising but his FG % is bonkers. Looks every bit the part of a future #1 overall pick. Have liked him over Michael Porter Jr because of his offensive skillset. Looks to have turned it up a notch in terms of aggressiveness since stepping foot in Durham.

    5* F Billy Preston: Picked Kansas over USC
    Has yet to play for the Jayhawks due to disciplinary/off court incident

    5* PG Nickeil Alexander-Walker Picked Va Tech over Maryland & USC
    19 ppg, 4 rpg, 3 apg, 46% 3FG - was hoping he'd wind up at USC. But can understand why he didn't with the number of guards already on the roster. He really impressed during the UA Association. Watched him play vs Washington and he lit them up for 20 points while shooting 4/7 from 3.

    4* SG Ethan Thompson: Picked Oregon State over Syracuse, Stanford & USC
    10 ppg, 4 rpg, 4 apg - Probably won't have a bigger impact until his soph/junior year. Could possibly be an all PAC12 level performer.

    4* F Oshae Brisset: Picked Syracuse over USC (who he apparently favored heavily early on)
    10 ppg, 7 rpb, 26% FG - Has a chiseled physique and attacks the glass but has been struggling a bit to find his shot.

    4* G Devontae Schuler: Picked Ole Miss over South Carolina and USC
    11 ppg, 2 rpg, 2 apg - crafty and finishes well around the basket.

    4* Kenny Wooten: Picked Oregon over Nevada and USC (went on record that USC was his dream school at one point)
    9 ppg, 7 rpbg 3 bpg - pegged to be the next Jordan Bell for Oregon

    Great stuff!

    Obviously, it would be amazing to have Bagley.

    But, save for him, the only one there who fits a need for the program at this junction is Wooten, and I am doubting he fits the type of profile Enfield is now looking for.

    Obviously, NAW has looked awesome. But we have Thornton, Melton and Weaver coming in. Not really room for another ball handling combo guard.

      thanks, cj. dudes are all ballin'.....clearly, all are getting pt, though.

      wanted brisset badly. again, need that 6'8" 'big sam banger' so badly, imo. that kid is already a tank and only going to get stronger....

        On a side note. Watched about 20 minutes of a replay of OSU and South Florida last night and ex USC recruit Malik Martin seems to found a home with the Bulls. He is still very thin but he played a pretty good game.
