    247 profile shows offers from DePaul, Drake, Illinois, Indiana, Indiana State, Kansas State, Nebraska, Northern Illinois and now Ohio State. It appears Shaka Smart at Texas has also recently offered. Was not on a lot of radars as he was previously committed to play baseball at Missouri. After reading about the kid I am a big fan of this offer.

    Couple of articles from December and January:

    Typo on my part, he's not listed as a PF but rather a PG. Editing the thread title.

    I wonder if any of the coaches will be here since all of the other recruits and commits will be playing in national tourneys in NY, Dallas, and VA this weekend?

    Hope we can pull off the upset, looks like everyone has Illinois or Sparty. Wesson and Smith would form the basis of what could be a nice '17 class (and a huge improvement over '16 with those two alone imo).

    Quick first impression I see Eric Gordon who I got to watch in high school. Big build, explosive to the rim and a smooth jumpshot. Smith shows plus passing too.
