Kansas secures commitment from 2022 Gradey Dick

Sunrise Christian is producing some elite talent that will be seen playing at the highest level in the coming years.  On Wednesday, they added another commitment, as 2022 6’7 Gradey Dick announced he would be heading to Kansas.

It is the second commitment for the Jayhawks from Sunrise Christian, already landing 2021 Zachary Clemence, and it is their second commitment in the class of 2022 so far, already receiving a verbal commitment from Kyle Cuffe Jr. 

When we spoke with Dick back in June, he had just received offers from Texas A&M, Northwestern, and Colorado, as his recruitment continued to take off from there with numerous offers.  Schools really liked his size and versatility, as well as his ability to guard multiple positions on the floor.  Phenom Hoops got a chance to watch him recently at the Battle at the Rock, where we had this to say:

“A 6’7, high IQ, versatile prospect that can operate on several levels and positions.  He plays with a great feel to the game along with a good motor.  His ability to knock down shots with a smooth release as well as use his size to work in other situations.  Plays with a smart feel on the court.”

Virginia Tech is the first to offer 2023 Comeh Emuobor

It wasn’t long ago when we spoke and discussed a rising 2023 prospect in 6’5 Comeh Emuobor.  The sophomore from Ravenscroft had an exciting season, following an impressive offseason.  One thing is for sure, Emuobor put his name on the market for college coaches and on Wednesday, he earned his first from the ACC. 

First, when asked how he would describe his game back in January, he had this to say: “A two-way guard who impacts the game on both ends of the floor, who has a high motor, who can shoot off the dribble, catch and shoot, and can get to the basketball at any time and a true leader.”

Emuobor also mentioned that the Hokies were one of several programs that were showing interest, along with Harvard, NCCU, Florida, UMass, Houston, and Clemson.  But grabbing your first offer is always exciting but to add on top, that it is coming from a program in the ACC… certainly should open some more eyes his way and he could be in for a big summer.

2022 Omarion Bodrick continues to work; snags huge SEC offer

Combine Academy is a program loaded with talent; certainly, a team you will want to see if you can this season.  One player, 2022 6’7 Omarion Bodrick, has been having a tremendous season for the Goats and he is capping the season off with his first Power-5 offer.

It has been an interesting year or so for the young man, as he earned an offer from Mount St. Mary’s back in April, adding to a list that already included Rider, USC Upstate, North Carolina A&T, Charleston Southern, Winthrop, and UNCG (all of which came back in 2019).  He then announced that he would be reclassing to the Class of 2022.

And now, the most recent news with the athletic prospect, is that he earned his first Power-5 offer from Vanderbilt, an exciting moment in his eyes.

“It was big for me,” he told Phenom Hoops.  “I have been working every day, just trying to get better and help my team win games and really haven’t been in contact with a lot of coaches, so that phone call was a big one for me.”

If you haven’t watched him on the court yet, this young man is extremely exciting, both offensive and defensively.  He is a high-flyer offensively that runs the floor but also be an incredible shot-blocker on the court as well. 

This could just be the start for this young man, as Tulsa has also expressed interest his way.

2023 Jalen Robinson excited about latest offer from Saint Peter’s

Still a young prospect but one on the rise in the state of New Jersey, Jalen Robinson has added yet another offer to his resume recently, this one coming from Saint Peter’s.  When speaking to Robinson, it was an offer that he was happy about receiving and looks to learn more about the program.

“I’m really excited about the latest offer from Saint Peter’s and I know this is only the beginning of something special,” he told Phenom Hoops.  “I just have to continue to work hard.  They weren’t in contact with me directly, so everything went through my coaches.”

Saint Peter’s now joins Wagner College and Robert Morris as far as programs that have offered, while Stony Brook is a program that has been showing interest his way as well.
