He hasn't  lived in the area for almost 30 years and I can't think of any prominent recruit he has landed from the metro area.

He recruited the area well at MO State.  Keith Pickens, Nathan Scheer, among others. He definitely recruited locally.

Road trips to Springfield, New England, and possibly Florida in the works.  

 

Florida trip in already finalized, and yes Springfield is in the works.  NE being Hall of Fame?

With this type of schedule they may be invited to the national tournament

"National tournament"?  I've always been under the impression that the high school championship was poll based.

I believe you also have to have some sort of known scheduling to back it up

EJ Liddell interview with Scott Burgess (discusses SLU specifically beginning at 2:34 and unfortunately then it cuts off):

https://www.prephoops.com/2017/04/ej-liddell-video-3/

 

Finally got around to watching this.  Sounded like he was about to say he has a good relationship with Jordan Goodwin.  How is his relationship with Pickett if we are able to get him?

I know, great time for the video to cut off....

I like the fact that Liddell pointed out that SLU is a basketball school. That's obviously something most top players don't think about since they usually go to power 5 schools.

-I've not watched the video so not certain the context of 'SLU is a basketball school' but if anything other than we don't have football I'm not sure I could agree

My way of interpreting it is that at state schools the basketball team often plays second fiddle to football team. At a school like SLU, that's not an issue.

If travis Ford went into the Metro East and grabbed Goodwin, Pickett, AND Liddell I will build the statue myself

Looks like Rivals has updated the 2019 rankings, below are some names of note (mostly kids with area ties) and I think Pistol can do a better job of adding guys with interest from SLU:

-James Wiseman - #4 (5 star) - playing up with Brad Beal Elite and rumored to be transferring to the St. Louis area (visited SLUH/Chaminade/CBC/Webster Groves).

-Jeremiah Robinson-Earl - #17 (5 star) - plays high school ball at Bishop Miege in KC area

-Marcedus Leech - #27 (4 star) - playing up with Gateway last I read

-Francis Okoro - #31 (4 star) - playing up with Brad Beal Elite

-Kofi Cockburn - #36 (4 star) - playing up with NY Rens

-Mario McKinney - #64 (4 star) - plays with Brad Beal Elite (16s I assume)

-EJ Liddell - #90 (4 star) - plays with Brad Beal Elite (16s I assume)

-Roman Wilson - #95 (4 star) - playing up with MOKAN Elite, from Park Hill (MO)

Leech is the SE MO area player, right?  If so, I would love to see him follow Thatch to SLU.  That area has produced some outstanding basketball talent over the past years.

Interesting choice of photos. Maybe he got them from recent SLU marketing emails?

I want this kid so bad now. I'm definitely using "blessed to promulgate" in my every day speech now.

Kids just a big fan of Majerus Billikens ofc

Yeah, that's what I'm going with too. More proof for GoryDaze that the Glory Days of Majerus are still relevant for this generation of high school kids.

Which makes what Majerus accomplished even more amazing. He didn't have photos/ highlights and results he could point to and say look come to SLU we can make this program matter on the national scene.
