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 ...

Johnson was recently in town for a couple days on an unofficial visit.

Boals, Weber, and Thornton were all at the same even tonight recruiting Christian Ray. Have to think he's a priority for the only scholarship for 19 class.

is it me or is xavier mayo not getting the attention that a proper 4 star deserves?

or perhaps he is not truly a 4 star? https://www.verbalcommits.com/players/xavier-mayo

heck i'd make the same argument for mirabeaux- a 3 star: https://www.verbalcommits.com/players/anderson-mirambeaux

been noticing more and more 3 stars showing up on the radar, mostly at the 1 and 4.  hopefully will land one soon.  not that stars are everything (or even accurate)....

Well, CoB, you can draw your own conclusion:  Mayo just committed to NJIT!!

ESPN has him as a 2-star I believe.

Stony Brook offered 6' 10" mouhamadou Gueye from Monroe College https://twitter.com/VerbalCommits/status/1058098754052444160

Highlights here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k85m3pYuiCo

I don't understand how this kid doesn't have more buzz. I almost can't find anything on him

Sometimes for whatever reason kids just stay under the radar. I hope it stays that way.

That into him? I dunno. He looked all right I guess.

FWIW, he averaged 2.2 points off the bench for Monroe in 2016-17. Not sure what happened last year.

is it odd that a 6'10'' center only has footage of him playing on the perimeter?

I think he moves well and looks very coordinated for 6’ 9”/6’ 10”. I don’t love that he’s playing as a wing but he looks way more comfortable out there than most guys his size. Its strange to me there’s nothing on his high school recruitment as I think he has a really high ceiling.

Eh. Best case scenario he's Junior Saintel IMHO.

Stupid question maybe, but how are these "stars" assigned to prospects?  Is it an automated rating system, strictly scout-based, or a combo of the 2?  Objective or subjective?

If memory serves correct, wasn't Thrower rated as a 3-star prospect coming out of the state of Michigan?
