Big East Recruiting Update (October 10): “Nova in High, Final Five, Final Cuts and More!

Shortly after the latest recruiting roundup, Villanova’s target Zayden High School (Spring Branch, Texas/Compass Prep), a 2023 four-star forward, announced the Wildcats were on his latest five-man list, which also includes Texas, North Carolina, Arkansas and Michigan.

It was a great highlight that started off a pretty subdued recruiting week.

Here’s the rest of the action across the Great East for this past week:

Incoming transfer:

  • Triton College (JUCO) guard Keyondre Young (Del City, Okla./Del City) will trade to DePaul after this season.

Commitments outside the Big East:

  • 2023 four-star guard Silas Demary Jr. (Wake Forest, NC / Combinee Academy) signed to USC, also had offers from Providence and St. John’s.
  • 2023 four-star guard Edgerrin ‘Jizzle’ James Jr. (Orlando, Fla./Olympia) signed to Cincinnati, also had offers from Providence and Georgetown.
  • 2023 three-star center Michael Nwoko (Sugar Land, Texas / Prolific Prep) committed to Miami, also had Providence in his last nine.

Final cuts:

  • 2023 four-star forward Zayden High (Spring Branch, TX/Compass Prep) included Villanova in his latest five-man list.

New offers:

  • 2024 four-star guard Jalil Bethea (Warminster, Pa./Archbishop Wood) has received an offer from St. John’s.
  • Three-star 2024 center Thomas Sorber (Trenton, NJ/Archbishop Ryan) has received an offer from St. John’s.

Other Notes:

  1. If you find an error, have news of a new offer, do not hesitate to notify me on Twitter at @erapay5. I will update accordingly.
  2. Congratulations to anonymous eagle, Relaxed Hoya, Banners on the boardwalk, Rumble in the garden, The UConn Blogand VU hoops. Unfortunately, we don’t have articles on all the rookies, but we’ve gotten some help filling in some of the gaps from our other Big East SB Nation sites. Some rookies have clickable names, which will take you to a relevant article about that player.
  3. I recommend viewing the spreadsheet externally, as you’ll be able to use things like filters (Google Sheets has this option in the top left, next to the print button.) and Ctrl+F (Apple+F if you are on Mac) to facilitate the search for recruits. You will also have a larger screen/window to view the spreadsheet: Big East Offer Tracker, last updated October 10, 2022. Alternatively, you can see below.
