Constant Contact as 2020 Prospects Get the Phone Buzz

Ah, June 15th.  The date means everything to rising junior prospects.  For years elite and marginal prospects alike felt overlooked or as though college recruiting would never pick up.  Today the recruiting contact ramps up immediately.

Text messages and phone calls can virtually flood in to 2020 prospects now.  Keep an eye on the top 20 players in 2020 as they draw constant calls/texts.  The next tier will generate a smattering of early interest.  Most 2020 prospects will continue to claw for camp invites.  While this day does not define a recruitment it certainly sets a course for elite recruitments.

SEC Targets

Ole Miss and Tennessee reached out this morning to Matthew Murrell (PrepHoopsTN #3).  Florida followed suit this afternoon.

Vanderbilt and Tennessee are pounding the top 5-10 players in the state today.

“Yes, Vanderbilt will contact me today,” shared Marvin Hughes (PrepHoopsTN #5).

Marcus Fitzgerald Jr. (PrepHoopsTN #7) heard from Vanderbilt, Western Kentucky, Holy Cross.  Also, Tennessee and Lipscomb will contact Brentwood Academy point guard Fitzgerald Jr.

What about our premiere 2020 player, Keon Johnson?  Every week the explosive, determined wing athlete opens new eyes.  Every day on the court he impresses new media members.  Is the gifted Keon Johnson or his mother Conswella Johnson gathering college contact today?

“Yes we’ve spoke with Vanderbilt and Ole Miss thus far today,” shared Keon’s mother Conswella Johnson around noon C.S.T.

The hottest sophomore in the state, Jacobi Wood (WHBH Gold) continously answered his phone today.

“Clemson, Canisius, Georgia, UTC, Lipscomb, and Rice have contacted me today,” shared Jacobi Wood at 1:00 PM C.S.T.

That the previously unknown point guard is already pulling in ACC and SEC interest speaks highly of WHBH Gold Director JP Primm.  The young program made multiple statements in the spring.   Harry Lackey will camp with Tennessee Saturday.  DeArre McDonald visited Middle Tennessee.  Daniel Loos proved he is a fringe D1 player with exceptional footwork.

Two Knoxville Webb players are sure to draw college interest.  Tariq Daughton and Emory Lanier will ultimately play at the Division I level.  Did any college coaches reach out?

“Yes sir so far Rice, Davidson, Liberty and Chattanooga and Vanderbilt, as well,” shared Emory Lanier.

Emory does not anticipate a D1 offer soon, though he does boast a UT-Arlington offer already.
