    That's Collin Chandler, a 4-star, 6'4 SG from Farmington, Utah. He's a high school senior but is more of a class of '24 than '22 prospect because he will take the next two years on his Mormon mission. The 247 recruiting site has him ranked #30 nationally and the #6 combo guard in the nation. BYU, Utah, Stanford, Arizona, and Gonzaga are all considered leaders (along with Oregon, bleh!), but I don't know how the scholarship situation or decision timeline comes into play. With that recruiting profile, Chandler can pretty much pick his spot. BYU may get lucky here.

    Who knows, maybe Collin Chandler if he picks BYU could be another Jimmer Fredette type. He seems like more of a passer and slasher but two years is a long time. I just
    hope he doesn't regress too much. Hopefully he can play some pickup basketball on his off time on the mission.

    Chandler is a Stud. Would love to see him keep that "Mormon Pipeline" going at BYU.

    Some more great news out of UW Green Bay! They have landed 6'10 210lb center Donovan Short. Big time get, he had a scholarship from USC and UW Milwaukee. As well as interest from several notable programs: Boise State, Georgia, Creighton, Ohio State.

    Not crazy about the team he is going to but the Ok. Sooners lucked out with this kid. Great athlete with good handles that can pass, shoot and defend. His dribbling
    skills are amazing for a 19 year old big man. Many guys in the nba don't have as good handles as Schroder and he is 6'7. Very impressive!

    New HC Porter Moser might be better! He was very fair while at Loyola Chicago. OU did have Reeves and Manek last few years as well.

    White players are underrated and disrespected by the scouting services as a bloc. There also seems to be a natural "cap," subconscious or not, on the percentage range of white high schoolers featured by the scouting industry. The point guard position is going the way of football's defensive backfield in terms of excluding whites at an early age from consideration.

    Meanwhile, the few players who garner attention are often destined to be major contributors. Here are the top-ranked high schoolers from 247 at the moment.

    Class of '22
    #8 Kyle Filipowski, 6'11 C, Duke
    #32 Gradey Dick, 6'6 SF, Kansas
    #36 Colin Chandler, 6'4 CG, uncommitted Utah lean (taking a mission year)
    #44 Donovan Clingan, 7'1 C, UConn
    #48 Isaac Traudt, 6'8 PF, Virginia
    #56 Jaden Schutt, 6'5 SG, Duke
    #58 Isaac McKneely, 6'4 CG, Virginia
    #60 Kam Craft, 6'5 SG, Xavier
    #65 Alex Karaban, 6'7 PF, UConn
    #68 Jaxon Kohler, 6'9 PF, Michigan State
    #70 Dylan Anderson, 7'0 C, Arizona
    #74 Justin Taylor, 6'6 SF, Stanford
    #84 Tyler Nickel, 6'8 SF, North Carolina
    #87 Rowan Brumbaugh, 6'4 PG Northwestern
    #90 Fletcher Loyer, 6'3 SG, Purdue
    #92 Zach Keller, 6'9 PF, Wake Forest
    #96 Joseph Pinion, 6'6 SF, Arkansas
    #100 Eli King, 6'3 CG, Iowa State
    #106 Brendan Hausen, 6'4 SG, Villanova
    #116 Ben Shtolzberg, 6'5 PG, Creighton
    #122 Aidan Mahaney, 6'2 CG, St. Mary's

    Sadly, I’d say the class of 22 top 150 is much better than the average year. 15% which probably lines up with an NBA draft.

    Kyle Filipowski in my honest opinion as a life long basketball fan is vastly underated at the number 8 pick. There are not even close to 7 high school kids better than him. The
    kid can do everything. Duke as always seems to get the cream of the crop. I don't like what they've done with our guys lately. Hopefully the trend reverses.
