A Brian Snowball for Xavier for wing Jusaun Holt.

A 6'6 200 wing from St. Francis Day School in Roswell, GA. 120th overall.

If he commits, Holt would be their third '21 recruit to add along with transfers Adam Kunkel and Ben Stanley. Very good '21 haul so far for Xavier and this would make it even deeper.

No relation to Emmitt Holt.

Thought this article about what Jay Wright looks for in recruits was interesting because it sounds similar to how Hurley recruits. Both programs know they're not getting a boat load of 5 stars so they look for certain characteristics in their recruits.

“We were told to look for the best combination of talent, character, winning pedigree and shooting,” said Howard. “That’s what we always looked for in every prospect.”

Howard continued, “Obviously you want to recruit a certain level of talent, but when you sift through it, you have to say who are the guys who can shoot the ball that are winners with good character. We used to call it having winning DNA.”

A new ball for Ryan Mutumbo and Georgetown. Obvious connections there.

#79 overall recruit and #13 center. If signed, he would be Georgetown's 4th recruit of '21.

Report from Evan Daniels:

Legit size with long arms and a sturdy frame. Has terrific hands & touch around the basket. Good feel as a passer out of the high post and on the block. Shot the ball from the mid-range area with confidence, and mechanics are fine. Impressive feel for the game and a high IQ. Good area rebounder and rim protector. Lacks lift, and just gets end-to-end OK. True low post player. Late bloomer with major upside. Son of Dikembe Mutombo.

247's most esteemed experts pointing Legend Geeter to Providence. #241 overall.

The Big East is acquiring talent while Providence is mere collecting high school graduates.

Yeah, just go on thinking he’s a dud. He missed AAU ball last year with an injury and this year it was cancelled so the “experts” like you have not seen him play. 6’7” position less type player, exactly what Cooley recruits. Think Alpha Diallo. Put it this way, take a look at his two matchups with Emoni Bates and then ask if that ranking is accurate.

Diallo was ranked about 130 spots higher than Geeter is.

I understand that and what I’m trying to tell you that very few people have seen this kid play. He has not played AAU since he was a freshman. He was 1st team all-state in Michigan last year on the #1 team and will be a favorite for Michigan POY this year.

Over Bufkin, Akins and Brooks? These three are all top-75 recruits and the consensus top three '21 recruits out of Michigan.

Yours obviously aren't broken, but if you ever need any more pairs of rose-colored glasses, there's a good deal on Amazon.

Duquesne and Western Michigan agree with you

Sounds like a nice kid. Congrats
He does seem like it, if he is half the player Henton was then I will be happy. Ed doesn’t care about the ranking
