That's just Reed's current suitors.  If his junior season goes well, that list will get upgraded.  He just got an offer from Michigan St.

I get it, and there is plenty of time for the kid to get more "high major" offers to go along with Michigan State, but the other three schools I mentioned aren't in that class and don't fit that label.

Here’s an article about Tarris Reed and his recruitment. I like what he had to say about SLU... Saint Louis: "It feels amazing, it feels just like home. They've invited me to a couple of games an

I watched the game and Reed was dominate on both ends. He even hit a 3 and had a nice jump shot. As mentioned, he completely shut down the 7’ Bradford.  I talked with a faculty member at Chaminade who

What doesn't belong is a football discussion in the 22 recruiting thread.  Please start an off topic thread if you want to continue.

A year ago, we didn't look like a strong player in Nesbitt's recruitment, either. Every recruitment is a dynamic situation and the hometown program, particularly with this staff, can't be counted out until a recruit has made it clear he's moved on.

Reed is a consensus top-75 player and the overall quality of his offers continues to rise. He seems to like that. If he wants a Michigan State or Ohio State kind of school, there's nothing we can do. For now, we just have to continue to recruit him as a priority big in that class and sell him on the things that are unique to SLU.

Meanwhile, Chaminade has another 2022 player who I'm convinced deserves an offer - Damien Mayo. He only has a couple offers so far and I think he could be a steal. Has some attributes shared by Thatch and Jett, and he appears to have grown a little bit based on the most recent highlight video I've seen (which ends with an eye opening dunk). I know I'm completely biased as an alum, but I think he really fits the character of SLU's program right now.

An offer is just a matter of time.  Mayo and Reed will be the dynamic duo at Chaminade this season.

It has to be. Every time I see a new clip of him, he looks better. I've heard nothing but great things about him as a person, too.

While I agree that Ford can't be counted out, part of the reason why I was disappointed in the article is that he doesn't mention SLU as one that is making him a priority right now.  If Ford thinks he has a chance and we know Reed has been at games so Ford was making him a priority, I don't think he stops unless he knows the player has no interest.  Now of course perhaps Reed just wanted to say the high majors that are making him a priority and just didn't include SLU which is totally possible.  

And if there is one good thing about Ford, I have no worries he will find other talented kids to bring in so like what you are saying about Mayo.

This might be Taylor’s first offer. I’m not sure though. Looks like he’s already following Coach Ford on Twitter and has liked a few posts from the University this week. 

Looks like it might be his first.  Plus a short scouting report.

Yes, first offer. Here's his updated bio (he was on the 2022 Interest list):

Brian Taylor - SG, 6-3, 170 - St. Louis, MO (De Smet) - AAU: Gateway - Twitter: @BrianTaylor2_
Offers: Saint Louis.

Interest: Xavier, Creighton, Wake Forest, Tulsa, Utah State, Loyola-Chicago, SIU-Carbondale, Illinois State, Drake, Southeast Missouri, Milwaukee, Furman, Louisiana-Monroe, Texas Southern.

Latest News: Taylor received an offer from SLU. (10/16/20)

Scouting Report: Taylor is an athletic scoring guard with a good all-around skill set. He gets to the basket and can score with either hand, he handles the ball well, and he has a consistent, compact shot. He's an excellent defender with good length and anticipation. Taylor averaged 10.5 PPG as a sophomore with a slashline of .498/.429/.640.

-I obviously need to beef up the scouting report but didn't have a lot of info on him at the time. I'll see what else I can dig up today.

Reminder, SLU alum John Duff is an assistant at DeSmet, and is also affiliated with Gateway (Gateway and Knights merged, also, Duff's son Justin is a Sophomore there)

And DeSmet coach Kent Williams has connections with several of the initially listed schools from the Valley and Creighton etc...

That OFFER graphic is smoooooth!

I like it.  Notice that he does not put himself in the tweet, rather the school.

Now let's get him and his CCP teammate in Billiken Blue, rep'n the city!

Do it - for real.

I love this offer.

He's a physical rebounder and can block shots. He runs the floor well and gives his team a lot of big hustle plays. His shot has a release point that is low and to the right, but he makes it consistently.

This appears to be taken from the top of the law school.  Seems like a good spot to use for this sort of video.
