The fourtheenth of July represented an extremely busy recruiting day, in that two top 20 players ended their college recruitments.  First, Braden Ilic Braden Ilic 6'10" | PF Morristown East | 2022 State TN selected East Tennessee State University. They were aggressive early and he reciprocated the love with his verbal commitment.  Less than two hours later, Kristian Shaw Kristian Shaw 6'6" | SG Beech | 2022 State TN did the same.

"They believe in me and they were my first D1 offer and my only D1 offer for awhile now, so I am [going to] make these other colleges we play realize they missed out," said Kristian Shaw Kristian Shaw 6'6" | SG Beech | 2022 State TN Wednesday evening via Twitter DM.

Many great prospects remain uncommitted, but with the removal of these two top options the list shrinks slightly.
