A quick hitting look at the latest in Southern California high school basketball recruiting.

Jakob Alamudun garners first two Division I offers

Marina high school forward Jakob Alamudun is one of the most productive players you’ll find on the SoCal high school hoops scene and his determination has proved fruitful. The Cali Rebels 17u standout earned his first two Division I offers from Army West Point and Lehigh after a strong showing in Las Vegas last week.

Julian Rishwain’s recruitment picking up steam

Rishwain made the move from Pump-N-Run to Belmont Shore to play in the Fab 48 and his trip up the 15 freeway paid dividends. The 6-foot-4 Sherman Oaks Notre Dame flamethrower shot his way into offers from Colorado State, Charlotte and Denver. He can file those next to ones from Hawaii and San Francisco.

Isaiah Johnson’s game translating to recruiting activity

We’ve been aware of Isaiah Johnson’s potential since his freshman campaign at Crean Lutheran and he’s finally getting to show that talent on a bigger stage. The 6-foot-6 forward doesn’t have a whole lot to say, but his active, physical and skilled finishing game sure does. The Bishop Montgomery High and Dream Vision 16s product picked up his first Division I offer from Rutgers.

Chibuzo Agbo adds local offer

The methodical pace of Agbo’s recruitment is and will be one of the more interesting storylines to monitor over the next couple of years. The 6-foot-6 forward smartly joined forces with Compton Magic’s talented 16u squad and performed well with them, using his versatility and strength to standout alongside other skilled and high IQ players. University of San Diego pulled the trigger on an offer to the St. Augustine junior who now has a pair of them with UC Irvine under his belt, as well.

Boubacar Coulibaly sees an uptick in his recruitment

The 6-foot-10 San Gabriel Academy and Dream Vision center reports July offers from USC, Cal, Colorado, Loyola Marymount and Pepperdine.
