Still with the number one recruiting class for 2022? Good question, but Bruce Thornton and Roddy Gayle appear to be bonafide ball players according to some commentors from the previous recruiting threads. The consensus is still out on Bowen Hardman, who started the covid season with a badly sprained foot and had some ups and downs throughout the season. Kalen Etzler, the 2021 class, was voted first team All Ohio, division 4, and Malaki Branham, also 2021, scored 37 points in his last game at the State Finals. He also is first team All Ohio, Div II, Mr. Ohio Basketball. 

Jamari Wheeler will be suitin' up next year at point guard, tenacious on ball defender. Hes a portal transfer from PSU. Lots of feelers out on grad transfer "big men". Toby Harrar, also PSU, Chandler Lawson, out of Oregon, and Parker Fox, from a Div III school, but do not hold that against him, his highlight reels are entertaining and will assuredly end up contributing at a "reputable" university next year. Most say he leans towards Minnesota. Buts getting lots of attention from the likes of Creighton, and others.

And, last, but not the least, the Efton Reid saga will be draw to an end April 15, when he announces. He is 6'11", 245, out of IMG Academy, and a legit 5 star recruit. And while a Pitt wishful thinker extended a crystal ball to Pitt last week, this is, as mentioned,is wishful thinking. Word is its Pitt, the Buckeyes, Virginia, (and LSU is trying to round up some money to pique Reid's interest,lol)

Since this is the beginning of a new thread, highlight reels of Thornton and Gayle would be welcomed;as well, any highlight reels of Parker Fox, or Malaki Branham going off for 37 in the state finals, or Efton Reid. With so much subscriber paid for content these days, it can be difficult to access good, pertinent, and up to date highlight film. Go Bucks!
