Legend Geeter, a 6’8 wing/forward from River Rouge high school, has seen an uptick in his recruitment as of late, especially with two of his latest offers.
It was a tremendous season for Geeter, who averaged 16 points, 10 rebounds, and two blocks this past season as a junior and was named to the Detroit All-State team. His recruitment had been going very well also, holding offers from programs such as Cleveland State, Miami (OH), Detroit, LIU, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, and Kent State.
The offers continued to come in, as Duquesne, Bowling Green, and Western Michigan also offered recently. But one can’t look past that Geeter’s recruitment may have hit another level with two new offers, as Georgetown offered back in March and Missouri just recently offered as well.
“It started when I got my first offer, I was excited but I didn’t let it get to me,” Geeter said when talking about his overall recruitment. “I kept working and was thinking if I kept grinding more, more will come.”
Missouri is his first offer from an SEC program but certainly one that shows his hard work is paying off. He is excited about the offer but knows he still has more work to do. The coaching staff informed Geeter about the offer in the morning from the Tigers.
“I honestly don’t know much about the school yet but I do know if it was one of my choices, it would be a great school to attend,” Geeter said.
The Missouri offer followed an offer from Georgetown, another big off for the 2021 prospect.
“It was really exciting and I felt good about it,” he said about the Georgetown offer. “That was my first big offer. I was really excited when I got that offer but as I said before, there’s more to come and more work to put in.”
It will be interesting though to see who else may join in his recruitment. Right now, he doesn’t have any virtual visits or anything set up but that certainly could change down the road.
Geeter is staying focused, continuing to put in the hard work and time will tell about which programs may be coming after the Tigers and Hoyas.
