This is always an interesting time of year, as there are a lot of things going on after the live period. While the college coaches are no longer able to attend AAU games until July, players are back in their home gyms getting ready. With each week this spring, we are going to take a look at the latest recruiting news from DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
JAYLIN ANDREWS TO LOYOLA
One of the best available seniors in Maryland, Jaylin Andrews, committed to Loyola last week. The versatile guard had a solid senior year at Boys’ Latin.
COPPIN STATE LANDS COOPER IN ‘19
Wakefield ’18 Wing Amari Cooper committed to Coppin State. He will prep into 2019 and enroll next fall.
FLOWERS PICKS JMU
After reopening his recruitment due to the coaching change at Loyola, Devon Flowers has committed to James Madison. The 6-foot-8 post should provide an impact defensively from day one.
GOLDEN TO BUTLER
One of the most hotly recruited bigs on the east coast, Bryce Golden committed to Butler yesterday. The high energy forward will fit in nicely with the Bulldogs philosophy.
HINES TO MARIST
Marist is getting one of the biggest steals in the 2018 class with the recent signing of Darius Hines. Bishop Ireton’s PG has a chance to be a program changer.
XAVIER JOHNSON COMMITS TO PITTSBURGH
Bishop O’Connell PG Xavier Johnson committed to Pittsburgh last week. The former Nebraska Commit should play a key role in Jeff Capel’s plans from day one.
TIMON JONES TO PREP AT FUMA
Timon Jones will prep into 2019 at Fork Union. The tough PG, who is playing with Team Richmond Garner Road this spring and summer, received a recent offer from Catawba.
DAVIS LONG TO WALK ON AT DELAWARE
Sherwood star Davis Long will walk on at Delaware in the fall. The 6-foot-3 wing played for Darryl Prue’s Team Takeover Orange Squad last summer.
TREY MCGOWENS TO PITT
Hargrave Guard Trey McGowens will go to Pitt in 2018. He will team up with Xavier Johnson to form an exciting young back court.
DJ MYERS TO WESTERN CAROLINA
Hargrave Wing DJ Myers committed to Western Carolina last week. The former Longwood commit reopened his recruitment due to a coaching change.
HENRY OKOYE TO ALDERSON BROADDUS
Tuscarora PF Henry Okoye recently committed to Alderson Broaddus. The strong and athletic 6-foot-7 post prospect is a good fit for the division two level.
TOMMIE POPE TO WV WESLEYAN
Cape Henry ’18 Guard Tommy Pope committed to West VA Wesleyan last week. Jack Meriwether is getting an experienced player who can defend at a high level.
JAY ROBINSON TO HAMPTON
Benedictine ’19 Wing Jahdon Robinson committed to Hampton yesterday. This is a great get for the Pirates. Robinson has a high ceiling, and should make an early impact.
RUCKER PICKS MARSHALL
Marshall picked up a recent commitment from Cape Henry ’19 PF Dajour Rucker. The 6-foot-6 forward will bring size and perimeter shooting to the Herd front court.
CONCORDIA LANDS SIMS
Potomac ’18 Wing Devon Sims has committed to Concordia. The former Paul VI standout missed virtually his entire senior year due to injury, but should do well at the division two level.
DESHAUN WADE BACK TO ECU UNDER COACH DOOLEY
Miller ’18 Guard DeShaun Wade committed to East Carolina. The former Pirate commit had to re assess things after the coaching change, but decided to stick with the program he initially selected.
KEVON VOYLES TO PREP INTO ‘19 AT TLAP SPORTS ACADEMY
Former UMES commit Kevon Voyles recently announced his intention to prep into 2019. The 6-foot-3 lefty, who can score it from all three levels, should continue to attract division one looks.
YEUTTER TO HOLY CROSS
Bullis ’18 Guard Lincoln Yeutter recently committed to Holy Cross. This comes not long after a visit to the campus.
