Best Available: 2019 Centers

Recruiting
Indiana

Posted On: 11/27/18 7:11 PM

The high school season is here and we have hit a little bit of a stalemate with commitments but there might be some movement on the horizon. At the end of each month throughout the season, we will be diving into those players still on the board and looking at who fits where. Things can change in the span of a week so each month should provide us with a whole new view on the landscape.

Today, we are looking at the 2019 centers and the players still remaining on the board. We list the DI, DII, NAIA, and DIII targets. As a note, these are based off of where we think the player will excel at the highest level. Players will get recruited above and below the level we have them listed for but it is our estimation that these are where they would succeed the most.

Already Off The Board:

We sit a little over a week into the season and we have three guys now off the board. Since the last update, Hogan Orbaugh and Chaz Hinds both came off the board. Orbaugh found his fit at DePauw and Hinds did so with Pikeville. Both good fits for level and take a couple key pieces, two of the higher upside remaining targets.

DI Targets Still On The Board:

While it looked like for some time that Dawand Jones would end up playing basketball, I don’t think you can say that anymore. With offers from the likes of Ohio State and Michigan, I think that ship has sailed.  And that really hurts because now there really isn’t another sure-fire target for DI schools to go after.

DII Targets Still On The Board:

Still in the same spot with DII programs trying to find a post player, Mawich and Logan are still on the board.  Not much has changed and it may take most of the season before anything might. Two guys worth a look, though.

NAIA Targets Still On The Board:

We lost a couple guys off this list from last time in Hogan Orbaugh and Chaz Hinds but I’ve since moved Ryan Wiggins to this spot. After watching him play last week, he’s looking better and better every time and he’s playing like every play might be his last. Add in his jumper that seems to be locked in right now and not sure there is another player rising up my board as much as Wiggins.

DIII Targets Still On The Board:

Nothing has changed at this level and it likely won’t. Those players that have yet to decide, likely won’t until after the season. No movement on guys moving up and down a level as we just haven’t gotten to see enough yet but we have our eyes on a few players that could. Just need to see them first.
