PHILADELPHIA, Pa.- Expect the Reebok Classic Breakout to springboard the recruitment of Makinde London to a whole other level.
London could be the biggest sleeper prospect headed into July.
Pushing 6-10, London has grown nine inches over the past two years and plays more like a guard than a post player. He has great feel for the game and a strong skill set.
His game resembles that of Earl Clark who played at Louisville although London appears to be a better shooter than Clark at the same stage.
Currently VCU, Mississippi State, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt have offered with VCU and Mississippi State showing the most interest according to London.
Georgia Tech, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas State, Miami, Xavier, Georgia Tech and Wichita State are showing interest.
Having already visited Mississippi State and played at a camp at Tennessee, London has VCU and Wichita State on his visit wish list and would like to visit Tennessee again.
Head coaches from Vanderbilt, VCU, Tennessee and Miami amongst others were spotted watching London
In his showdown with Rashad Vaughn, head coaches from Kentucky, Baylor, SMU, Minnesota and others were sitting front and center. Neither prospect shot the ball extremely well, but they both played strong defense and did a nice job passing the ball after breaking down the defense.
Afterwards, Mudiay confirmed that he will visit Kentucky for Midnight Madness. Besides speaking highly of Kentucky and Coach Calipari's history of coaching great point guards, he also talked about the attractiveness of possibly playing for Larry Brown 20 minutes from home at SMU. Proximity and religion are draws for Baylor
Buliding on his strong performance at the NBA Top 100 Camp, Onuaku was impressive last night. Playing with energy and passion, he cleaned up plays inside and also made plays on the perimeter.
With his stock on the rise, Onuaku said Xavier, Seton Hall and DePaul are recruiting him the hardest. He also named Virginia Tech, Virginia, Maryland Cincinnati, Connecticut, Rutgers, Kansas State, Minnesota, Miami and George Mason as schools who have offered.
Onuaku said he doesn't expect to make a decision until the spring.
A smooth wing at 6-7, Gratham said Clemson, Miami, Texas, Virginia and Cincinnati are recruiting him the hardest.
The 2016 big man was one of the first prospects to catch my eye. Long, aggressive, athletic and has some shooting touch.
The 2015 point guard was quite impressive. A strong athlete, Sanders consistently got to the rim and finished while also displaying a well rounded all around game.
The small forward shot the ball well last night.
Price-Martin is most dangerous in the high post. He has a quick first step compared to most big men and draws a lot of fouls attacking the basket with his right hand.
