Vermont Academy (Vt.) guard Bruce Brown is one of the most sought after backcourt players in the class of 2016.
It’s not hard to see why, either, as the 6-foot-4 guard plays with tremendous energy and contributes in a variety of ways. Brown again showed off his versatility at the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) Finals at the Peach Jam during the first July evaluation period.
NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. – Class of 2016 Bartow (Fla.) forward Tony Bradley is continuing to stockpile offers from the nation’s top programs.
His lengthly list of offers is a who’s who of college basketball and includes Kansas, North Carolina, Florida, Illinois, Connecticut, and Indiana, which offered a scholarship in May.
Indiana offered scholarships to a pair of class of 2017 point guards on Monday, according to reports. The two new offers went to Trevon Duval of St. Benedict’s Prep (N.J.) and Matt Coleman who played at Maury in Norfolk, Virginia, but is transferring to Oak Hill Academy.
Duval (pictured) is a five-star prospect in the 247Composite (No. 7 overall) and Coleman is a four-star at No. 27 overall.
It didn’t take long for class of 2016 Pickerington Central (Ohio) guard Ibi Watson to get a call following the conclusion of the first July evaluation period.
Watson had just finished playing for All-Ohio Red in the Best of the South near Atlanta and was headed home when a call came in with a scholarship offer from Indiana.
Class of 2016 Huntington Prep (W.V.) wing Miles Bridges announced his final five schools on Monday morning and Indiana remains in the mix for the five-star prospect.
According to his Twitter account, Bridges has narrowed his list to Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State and North Carolina.
In no order.. Michigan Michigan St. Kentucky North Carolina Indiana
