We truly couldn’t go wrong with any of Barnes/Nesbitt/Weston-great options to have and I think we land one of them

Jaden Schutt can play some ball for a sophomore. I like his frame, athletic ability, and an unbelievable shooter. Low level competition but still some of the plays he makes are very good for a sophomore. Some highlights are against Morgan Park I believe. Local Illinois kid to keep close tabs on.

Very impressive highlight video!! Would like to see how he does with someone his size bird dogging him like Damonte would be doing an opponent. Very young and will be getting even better. Glad to see we are in on him already, he has the tools.

Great to hear that Adam and Luke Goode are both out there recruiting guys. Things are really looking up for this program. Wood and all the staff are absolutely killing it. Great job everyone!

Stay safe all.

Agreed. An open and Schutt case can be made for this young man!

Like Brandon Weston's high motor, well coached game. Seems like the SF/wing that the MSU and the better Purdue teams have had. Seems like a Malcom Hill type talent and probably similiar ranking at that same point.

Other player that comes to mind is Quintin Richardson who had a strong inside and mid range game. But Q was a top 12-15 talent. Saw him as a hs freshmen and senior seemed like total different person. But as a senior Q was so strong he could post some of the nation's top centers and would park himself inside or pop out for a 3.

Not at all pressing, but given the Loyalty need for matching recruits to the players they could potentially grow into, i'm curious who Weston sees and says, 'i want to model my game after that guy.'

Thanks, Boss, hopefully you can get that to happen. Good luck and be safe.

What are the top 3 things he is looking for in choosing a school?

Of the schools you are looking at, which school offers the best combination of coaching, exposure, fan base, campus, and upward trajectory; and why did you say Illinois?

Kind of along the same lines, I would ask his thoughts on his suiters and player development.
