2018-2019 Men's Basketball Recruiting Thread
Offers out to 2019 guards Idan Tretout (out of Miles Lester's HS) and Zion Richardson (Texas).

Also Montana fans don't seem particularly happy with Jack Williams. Can't imagine Rice fans would be if the situation was flipped either.

Kind of fun (very early, but still)...but Rice was included in 2019 F Majok Deng's final 12. The other schools on the list:

Ohio State, Arizona, Duke, Utah, Vanderbilt, Northwestern, Stanford, UCLA, Georgia Tech, Princeton, and Cal.

Seriously. Never thought I'd see a world where Rice is on a list with Arizona, Duke, and UCLA. He's from Tuscon, so he's almost certainly gonna end up at U of A but still. This is almost as shocking as when that top-50 football player had us in his top 10 next to Alabama.

Unrelated, but seemingly priority 2019 target Brendan Wenzel hit 12 3s against a big AAU club. Really, really good shooter who's been on campus a couple times.

Ok, so if you'll reference my post a few days ago about Majok Deng....we just made the top-6 for 2019 4* Daniel Ramsey along with Florida, Xavier, Ohio State, Vanderbilt, and Georgia.

Ramsey is a 4*, 94 composited on 247. I don't know what Pera and co. are doing, but let's hope they keep doing it.

Here's the tweet: https://twitter.com/Daniel_Ramsey5/statu...13/photo/1

Wow. Landing 1 of those top recruits can really have a snowball effect (see Vandy). I’m not going to get too optimistic though, we were in the top 3 for DeMarcus Cousins too 03-lmfao

I think Deng is probably the more realistic of the two. He's originally from South Sudan so he's already said location in the United States won't matter. He also said he's considering engineering as a major, which could be a good selling point for Pera.

But Ramsey, and I have no clue why I remember this, mentioned us in a tweet a couple years back, so we've been after him hard for a while now. Somebody wrote an article on him a couple months back where we weren't mentioned, so he might be a bit of a long shot. But nice to be mentioned in the same breath as the blue bloods once in a while.

Ramsey commits to Xavier, who he visited a couple days after he posted his top schools.

I knew it would be either us or Xavier. Figured Xavier had a better shot based on the top 6 tweet

RE: 2018-2019 Men's Basketball Recruiting Thread
Pera continues to be on an insane roll. We just made the top-3 for 2019 C Malcolm Wilson along with Georgetown and Clemson. Rated a pretty high 3* by 247, had other offers from South Carolina, Georgia Tech, Old Dominion, and VCU. He's a really long and lean 6-11 center. One of those guys that might not put up 25 points a night in HS, but will put up a 15 pts, 10 reb, 5 blocks line. Let's hope we land either Deng or him (or both). He visits Rice August 31.

We still don’t have one 2019 commit so I don’t know how you can say we’re on an insane roll...

Fair enough. But Pera is doing something to sell these kids on Rice to a degree I haven't seen in the past few years. That's three kids in the span of three weeks where the name Rice is next to an ACC/Big 10/SEC/Big 12 name. Yeah, it might not matter if we don't get any of the guys, but it's an accomplishment in and of itself to even get these kids to consider coming here considering where the program was last year.

Pera and the staff stressed they would recruit kids that valued a Rice type education. They said this right after Pera became HC. Don’t think for a minute that last year’s freshmen were the type the staff would recruit once they got a normal recruiting period. Last year’s group was akin to driving your pickup to a day labor site and yelling that you need five bodies.

Nope. One transferred to FSU after proving he could play D1. One transferred to be a walk-on at Wake and not play any. One failed out and is at a junior college.
