Peja Stojakovic's son Andrej is one to watch! 6'7 Wing who is physical enough to play as a 4/5 in HS. I'd love to see him choose St. Mary's and star there as a True Freshman. Though I believe at some point? Bigger offers will pour in.

Good deal!! I loved to watch Peja and those kings teams with Williams, Divac and Webber. His kid looks like he will be a good one.

I wish he had his dads/ Bird overhead release on his shot.

Sam Howery was voted by MaxPreps as Colorado 's Player of the Year. At 6'0, Howery received ZERO D1 offers. Without playing AAU, the recruiting site 247 doesn't even have a profile page for him. He will play next year for local D2 school CSU Pueblo.

I can't speak to Howery's athleticism or his school's competition. It just seems *odd* that a top dog like this couldn't get a sniff from ANYWHERE.

Sam Howery, St. Mary's (Colorado Springs)

I've got a guy headed to The Horizon League that is worth a mention. 6'8 PF Cade Meyer from Monroe, WI is headed to UW Green Bay. Nice in-state get for Will Ryan the Phoenix's new coach. Son of Former Badger HOF coach BO Ryan.

Meyer is well rounded and should fit in instantly to the rotation. UWGB is rebuilding and it's actually been awhile since they've been able to keep any In State talent leftover from the big boys inside of Wisconsin.

Meyer ended up averaging 9ppg and 4rpg for Green Bay as a true Freshman! Shot 73 percent from the line and became more of a scoring presence as season went on. I'm expecting a big Sophomore jump for him.

Dusty Stromer, a 4 star shooting guard class of 2023, committed to Gonzaga a couple of days ago. he’s the first White guard they’ve signed in a long while, but he has the chance to be a really good one. listed at 6-foot-6, he’s bouncy and is a prolific scorer at all three levels, but he’s skinny as a spaghetti noodle.

VIrginia Tech will be a favorite team to watch on this board for sure. Great updates guys. Brandon R. is smooth on the court. Like his
strength, passing, cuts, shooting and explosiveness.

Borderline 5-star PF TJ Power committed to Duke's 2023 class. I'm pretty conflicted about this, as Power must slide into a very specific niche role to have any hope of playing time. Despite being ranked the #24 player in the entire nation, he will be the third-rated PF in Duke's class, with two other blacks having the exact same 6'8, 210 lb frame. Power could have gone to Iowa instead and been the top-rated recruit on their roster. Every five-star high school kid should have his eye on the pros at this point, all the more if you're in a 'tweener' position.

On the positive side, new Duke coach Jon Scheyer has now recruited three elite white players for the '22 and '23 classes, as Power will join incoming freshmen Kyle Filipowski, a point-center, and shooting guard Jaden Schutt. This is about as good as possible for a team like Duke that's gone to a pure blue chip model of recruiting. This is also much better than Coach K managed in his final few seasons. Scheyer looked like a caste stooge early on, but locking up Power (and Schutt) shows promise for an old former-favorite.
