Programs intrigued with the “throwback big” in 2022 Jaxon Kohler

Holding seven offers already from Southern Utah, UC Santa Barbara, BYU, GCU, Texas Tech, Utah, and San Diego, 2022 6’9 Jaxon Kohler could start seeing that offer list continue to increase.  Describing himself as a “throwback big that plays back to the basket mostly but can score in a variety of ways,” Kohler has the attention of several schools on the West Coast.

The schools that have offered so far, they have continued to stay in touch and like early on what they have seen with his game.

“They say I’m one of the most skilled bigs in my class, great footwork, soft touch, and great outside shooter,” Kohler told Phenom Hoops. 

But several big-time schools are expressing interest and they may come with an offer soon.  Schools like UCLA, USC, Stanford, Arizona, Arizona State, Gonzaga, St. Mary’s, California, Washington, and UNLV have all expressed interest his way.

“They have encouraged me to keep working hard and continue to develop and plan to continue to recruit me going forward,” he replied.

So far, Kohler has been able to get a glimpse of BYU, Utah, Southern Utah, UC Santa Barbara, and UCLA, making visits in the past and getting a chance to see what the schools and programs had to offer.  But Kohler could be on the verge of a big-time uptick in his recruitment, and it seems that several west coast teams have their eyes on him.

Learn the name Jordan Ross, a 2023 prospect from Pleasant Grove High School in Utah

People may want to start getting familiar with the name Jordan Ross, a guard from Pleasant Grove high school in Utah as he has garnered early attention from college programs.

This past season, Ross averaged 8.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.0 steals, and played in all 26 games this past season.  The freshman actually started in every single game as well, helping lead his team to the Elite-8 in the state playoffs.

Right now, he has already earned offers from Washington State and Cal Poly but has heavy interest from Utah, BYU, Utah State, Weber State, Stanford, and Utah Valley according to his high school.

Phenom Hoops wanted to learn more about the young guard, as his high school coaches had this to say about him.

“Jordan has one of the best IQ’s for a young point guard that we’ve seen in some time.  He is a pass-first guard who loves to make plays for his teammates.  He has great handles, as he’s strong with both hands and going both ways to the basket.  He can hit three’s pretty well but teams last year dared him to shoot but he’s been capable of knocking shots down.  He’s working on his strength and quickness that comes with time as he grows into his body but he wants it now, so he’s been working hard to gain in those areas.”

Schools continuing express interest in 2021 Cameron Brimhall

It has been a tough time for several ball players, not being able to get into the gym and showcase their talents.  That can be said for 2021 6’9 forward Cameron Brimhall but he isn’t letting that slow him down.

The rising senior from Lone Peak says he has been looking to gain more weight, as well as working on his ballhandling and shooting this offseason, in hopes of securing more offers down the road.

Currently, he holds an offer from Dixie State, one he received back in mid-May.  However, schools like UC San Diego, Utah State, Yale, Utah Valley, Weber State, and West Minster.

“UCSD has been calling me and saying they are really interested and want me to come to visit the school,” he told Phenom Hoops.  “And Utah State has been giving a lot of attention as well.”

Brimhall is a very intriguing prospect, as he holds a strong outside game just as much as his inside presence.  He shot the ball well from three (40 percent) and has the ability to take opponents off the dribble.
