Nelson would be a 2018 guy. Looks like a player. Explosive athlete, tough with a high motor. Doesn't look like he forces the issue. Sign him up.
Seawolves win the AE title in 2019 😎

No doubt the kid can shoot and move the ball . Interesting we are looking that far out in the future.

2019 G/F Nathan Johnson from Waukee HS in Iowa has gotten a lot of D-I interest, and we're the latest to make an offer (per his Twitter). He reclassified and will do a year at Hargrave Military Academy beginning in the fall. Evidently Air Force offered him a couple summers ago but they filled up their roster, and schools like UTEP and Florida Gulf Coast have shown interest as well.

Allegedly 6-7. I can't say I'm wowed by him, but he looks like he's pretty athletic, plays hard, can score inside and out, and can put it on the floor too.

Highlight reel ...

i like him.  he's like a multi-tooled 3 (dribble, dunk, shoot, rebound, penetrate).  kind of like an ahmad walker under control.

maybe with more weight can play some 4?

Another offer goes out to 2019 6-9 F Tariq Balogun, who helped the Miller School win a state title in Virginia. He’s raw, long and lean, and a Brit like Akwasi. Probably not an alpha dog but potentially helpful underneath on both ends of the floor.

There’s an old skill video out there, but better yet, we have some recent uncut game footage. “#23” per the announcers in this video.

https://youtu.be/EiV4_liYhCo

A synopsis from another site:

“After a solid summer with BWSL’s 16U group, Balogun transferred from Walsingham and will be suiting up for Miller School outside of Charlottesville this year. He’s a very interesting prospect to keep an eye on, and it wouldn’t be much of a stretch to say he’s a midmajor plus kid moving forward. At 6’9”, he has an intriguing skill set offensively as he can shoot the midrange, score with his back to the basket and in face up situations and he’s nimble enough to run the floor and finish in transition. His best asset right now is the fact that he has both a high motor and a high IQ of the game. He always seems to be in the right place at the right time. His addition is much needed for a Miller squad that made the VISAA Division Two Championship game and return their top four guards who led the team in scoring throughout the year.”

We've been looking way way ahead to 2021 and 2022 grads, but a couple offers were reported today for 2019s Robert Carpenter and Mattia Acunzo. Give me the better shooter, especially if Akwasi leaves after this year.

The grad transfer market was white hot this offseason. Akwasi’s good enough to get a look from a Big East/A-10 kind of school. Then again, Cremo and Nichols ended up at Villanova and Florida State so maybe he can set his sights higher - some young team could use a shooter with his collegiate/international experience. I’m hoping it doesn’t happen and I have no inside info but I’d say it’s at least a possibility that this will be it for him, if not a strong one. The other option could be to sign with a pro team in Europe a la Nyama.

Another offer has gone out to 2019 Gibson Jimerson. He's getting high-major interest. I'm kind of meh with his highlight tape however. Athleticism seems ordinary and release is slow, but hey, if he's somebody who can spot up and shoot the hell out of it, we can always use those.
