Bruin Recruiting: Prep News Roundup (12/20)

By Bruin Basketball Report

Prep News Roundup is published every Monday.


Dinos Trigonis told on Sunday that he believes Kentucky, Kansas and Texas are the co-favorites to land Deandre Daniels, a 6-7 forward Trigonis coached last summer. Daniels, arguably the nation's top uncommitted prospect, currently attends IMG Academy in Florida. He's expected to enroll in college somewhere next month, though Trigonis told that Daniels will not play college basketball until the 2011-12 season even if he's eligible to play the second semester of this season. CBS Sports 12/14

North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams was treated to a show. Bishop Gorman High junior shooting guard Shabazz Muhammad poured in 28 points Monday night, leading the Gaels to an 86-56 victory against host Desert Oasis and putting on an offensive explosion with Williams sitting courtside at the southwest Las Vegas school. The 6-foot-5 Muhammad, who lists as the No. 3 overall prospect for the class of 2012, didn't flinch with having someone of Williams' status in the gym. After all, he has caught the eye of several of the nation's top coaches, receiving more than 20 scholarship offers. Gorman has three juniors who are being heavily recruited, with appearances from the likes of Williams becoming a common occurrence. Assistant coaches from Arizona, Kentucky and UCLA also were in attendance. Las Vegas Sun 12/14

It was the second game in three days Horizon Christian faced an opponent at that elite level, after taking care of Mountain View, WA on Saturday night in Vancouver, 59-46. These games have not only helped the Hawks prepare for the elite competition they will face later this month at the Les Schwab Invitational, it also makes them battle tested when West Valley league play begins, as Junior point guard Jordan Tebbutt attests. “I think it will make it easier in league (having) already played strong teams”, says Tebbutt. Tebbutt is settling into his new position as the Hawks floor general quite nicely, getting the Hawks into rhythm against Marist right out of the gate. The junior drove to the basket strong getting the first points with a little harm and knocking in his free throw for the three point play to put the Hawks in front to stay at 3-0. Portland Examiner 12/15

Kyle Anderson’s excellent interior performance yesterday is unlikely to send college coaches scrambling to rework their recruiting pitches. The 6-8 junior already was widely considered one of the top young shooting guards in the nation. But Anderson’s ability to excel in every phase in the low post just may force upcoming opponents into some last-minute tinkering with the scouting report. Anderson, the former standout at now-closed Paterson Catholic, scored 23 points, collected 10 rebounds and added two steals to guide St. Anthony to a 62-50 victory over young, stubborn and very talented Gill St. Bernard’s at the Hoop Group Tip Off Classic at Seton Hall University, South Orange. 12/19

Fun game last night. I think we are finally seeing Lamb come out of his shell.

Props to Nikki Caldwell for the job she is doing....representing our 4 letters well.
Coach, get some recruiting tips from her! You should have studs lining up for your program. They should not b going to North Carolina H. Barnes - Texas J. Hamilton, Kansas etc....

The comments to this site are hilarious, especially the critiques of CHB's recruiting. The current team has two lottery picks (Smith and Honeycutt), a late first rounder (Nelson), and a future pro, euro or somewhere, in Lee. Not to mention a very talented freshman in Lamb. Its true the roll players haven't worked out too well, and leadership seems to be an issue, but a couple of down years isn't the end of the world. Good teams tend to be experienced, a bit older. These guys are young. Relax and watch them sputter towards greatness next year.

U r telling, Lane, Stover and Anderson are Div 1 prospects???
How many games are you going to give them to get better??
I'd tell them all to take a hike.
Anderson, Stover no brainer
Lane is a volleyball player
Don't expect the soft Wear twins to save u snext year either. We still do not have a point guard

Haha...I think the same way after drinking one two many of Uncle Albert's "special" egg nog. Fact of the matter is, Smith is the only legit player that can make the NBA...all the others need to know their role and play hard...maybe...just maybe they can squeeze out a memorable tourney run and get late round draft considerations.

Nikki just bumped Ben from the head of the UCLA dinner table. I'll take Hartman over Mosqueda anyday. I see Womens College Basketball dominance returning West,where the real players are. Nikki will keep them home where they belong. Do some serious recruiting Ben or you will never return to the front of the dinner table.

I think that because Washington St. is just now coming back from their mini tournament in Hawaii and will have to take some time off to adjust to the time change and everything, that will give them about 3 days to prepare for UCLA, whereas the bruins have had almost a week to prepare for the cougs, and on top of that, it's a home game for the Bruins, and I think they will be ready and take out WSU rather soundly.
