    It is common knowledge that you can never start recruiting too early in college sports. College basketball is no exception to this rule as coaches will reach out to recruits, their families, and coaches the first chance that they get.

    Centerville point guard Gabe Cupps is a coveted 2023 recruit from Dayton and has had contact with numerous high profile programs. Ohio State has been in touch with the 6-foot-2 point guard, as have schools including Wisconsin, Clemson, Kansas, Michigan, Virginia and the team that is going after him the hardest, Indiana.

    Since he is only a sophomore, and the pandemic has shut down any on-campus visits, schools haven’t yet been allowed to direct contact with Cupps, unless the recruit calls the coaches directly. That can change on June 15, and it will be interesting to see which teams immediately reach out to establish a connection with Centerville High School star.

    Cupps played on the same travel team as Bronny James (Lebron James son), the Blue Chips, and went viral on the internet when he challenged the elder James to a three-point shooting contest before one of their games.

    Saw the last name "Cupps" which was well known at Graham when I was there. His dad Brook Cupps was a phenomenal player back in his day (apparently, that before my time) and I know he is a heck of a coach (and AD, he was our high school's AD when I was there), kid probably had a ball in his hands in the crib. Very cool to see this, hopefully Gabe ends up in Columbus.

    Well, a little late to the party here, but I have no idea how this happened. It's not like the Cupps family is a loyal Buckeye household, but there's no way we should have swung and missed here. Sorry, but chalk up another one to CH finding a new job.

    The need for Cupps went out the window when George Washington III committed to the good guys.

    My understanding is that we still had a committable offer out there and just really didn't pursue as hard as we should of. I really think Cupps is going to be a thorn in our side for the next few years or so.
