  • Another top 2020, Henry Clay’s Marques Warrick had Evansville in Lexington last week to watch him. Kentucky native Terrance Commodore is recruiting the bluegrass state hard since landing at Evansville.
  • Miami (Ohio) made their way around the state yesterday as Coach JR Reynolds, a Kentucky native, was at Bowling Green watching Isaiah Mason, Frederick Douglass for Dashawn Jackson and Lexington Catholic for Ben Johnson. All 3 Sophomores were invited to take a visit to Miami next weekend.

Narrowed Lists

The big man from Richmond will also go to Wofford officially before making a decision in the fall. Belmont, UNC Wilmington and Charlotte join Wofford and William & Mary in the Final 5.
