There weren’t many events going on this past weekend, so the recruiting news hasn’t been as thick as usual. With that being said, we still saw two valuable 2021 prospects make their commitments and run through the offers that were handed out on the off week.


2021 Stat Nation point guard Jao Ituka Jao Ituka 6'2" | SG Gaithersburg | 2021 MD made his commitment to Marist. This is an absolute steal for head coach John Dunne as he’ll get the definition of a winner in Ituka. He’s 6-foot-2 with a football player type of build and despite not being the fastest player on the floor, has one of the most effective first steps I’ve seen at the high school level. Ituka can get by his man at will when operating in space and when he gets into the paint he can absorb contact on attempts around the rim. He’ll need to continue to grow as a playmaker for others, but when equipped with capable shooters, he’s a major weapon in that department. Ituka has always been one of the prospects that I enjoy watching every single game he’s on the floor because I know he’s going to compete at both ends
