2018 Transfer Tracker: April 17th Edition

Marquette Men's Basketball

Marquette Men’s Basketball

Welcome to Paint Touches’ 2018 Transfer Tracker. This list is our attempt at making sense of the hundreds of transfers that are bound to occur in the 2018 offseason. Every player on this list is a traditional transfer, which is to say that they will need to sit out the 2018-2019 season. If you’re looking for graduate transfers, Paint Touches has you covered. Our NCAA Free Agent Tracker lists the top currently available grad transfers. One caveat I’ll give before sharing this list, this is merely one man’s opinion and analysis of which transfers are the best available. I am not a former player, I have never coached college basketball, I spent my high school years playing in the pep band not on the hardwood. I am merely some guy on the internet who, from a scary young age, has spent way too many waking hours watching, debating, and obsessing over college basketball….who is also armed with several subscriptions to various advanced stat services. Now that we have that out of the way….to the list!

Transfer season is starting to kick into high gear as we include yet another big week. Two Big East rivals are on the scoreboard as they pick up commitments including our former number one. A pair of former top 100 guards are en route to football schools posing as basketball schools. Five new names have been added to the list, increasing the overall talent pool of the transfer tracker. In that group we have two variations of the name Burke, a former Marquette opponent, one of the highest scorers in Division 1, and an Andrew Rowsey look-a-like. Keep reading to figure out which of the five newcomers has found himself in Coach Wojo’s sites.

#6 MaCio Teague
#7 Zane Martin
#10 Bryson Williams
#11 Dachon Burke
#14 Marcus Burk

#1 Omer Faruk Yurtseven (committed to Georgetown)
#7 Davion Mitchell (committed to Baylor)
#9 David Caraher (committed to St. John’s)
#11 Kameron McGusty (committed to Miami [FL])
#15 Anthony Tarke (pushed out of top 15)

1. Jalek Felton- 6’4” 180 lb FR PG from North Carolina
9.7 mpg, 2.9 ppg, 0.9 rpg, 1.6 apg, 0.4 spg, 0.1 bpg, 1.1 tpg, .387 FG%, .667 FT%, .331 3P%

The nephew of former UNC standout and NBA player Raymond Felton, Jalek Felton was ranked as a 5 star by most services and finished with a #30 ranking in the 247 composite. Felton’s lofty ranking on this list is pretty much entirely based on the potential he showed in high school, because he didn’t have much opportunity to showcase it at North Carolina. This wasn’t necessarily because of his talent, but because of the talent around him. With seniors and national champions Joel Berry and Theo Pinson manning the backcourt, there wasn’t a lot of minutes available for Felton. Throughout non-conference play, Felton was getting about 12 minutes a game and was moderately effective. His offense struggled at times but he was defensively sound. He broke double digits in points twice, scoring a career high 15 against Western Carolina. But his most impressive performance was in the last game before Christmas when he put up 12 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists in 12 minutes of work against Ohio State. When the Tar Heels returned from winter break and started conference play, Felton’s minutes vanished. He would never see double digit minutes again and never scored more than 2 points in a game. This went on for 9 games before Felton found himself suspended. Felton’s conduct was under investigation and while the specifics were never disclosed, speculation was that Felton had been accused of some form of sexual misconduct. Felton was never arrested, nor did he go through the student conduct process as he opted to withdraw from the university before they could finish their investigation. These off the court concerns have not stopped the likes of South Carolina, Texas Tech, Illinois, Clemson, and Georgetown from reaching out to the former 5 star. Coaches will have to make the decision on how they view Felton’s past conduct and balance that with the talent that he could bring. There also is a question of work ethic. Roy Williams was quoted at the beginning of the season as saying that Felton “didn’t understand hard work.” 5 star PGs don’t become available often, so expect several coaches to take the risk.

Update (4/10): South Carolina, Clemson, Georgetown, and St. John’s continue to be linked to Felton.

2. Dru Smith – 6’3” 190 lb SO SG from Evansville
30.3 mpg, 13.7 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 4.6 apg, 2.0 spg, 0.5 bpg, 3.2 tpg, .578 FG%, .862 FT%, .482 3P%

The Evansville administration probably thought that hiring local hero and NBA assistant coach Walter McCarty was a slam dunk for their program. Unfortunately for them, it has not sat well with the current players. As of this writing, five players who were set to return to Evansville next season have asked for their release. The biggest blow might be Dru Smith. Smith is a native of Evansville who decided to stick close to home. He was a solid backup his freshman year before earning a starting role as a sophomore. Smith played the role with a level of ease and poise that you would not expect from a mid-major sophomore. His offense was silky smooth, always making the right pass and waiting for the right shot. He made 48% of his shots from distance and 62% of them inside the arc, both absurd numbers. His 4.6 assists per game and 2.0 steals per game were among the best in the MVC. Defensively, he plays at an elite level, shutting down anyone and everyone he is assigned to. His points per possession allowed are in the top 3% of all D1 players. Smith is not without concern, he has already missed a period of games 4 different times in 2 years due to injury. As a freshman he required minor surgery on his knee and missed 5 games. As a sophomore, he injured his foot and reinjured it twice causing him to miss a total of 10 games. A year off to heal might be the best thing for him. Most high majors would be lucky to have Smith’s services.

Update (4/10): Mizzou, Virginia Tech, Xavier, Purdue, and Nebraska have all conducted in home visits with Smith.

Update (4/17): Smith visited Virginia Tech this past weekend and will visit Xavier and Mizzou over the next two weekends.

3. Sacha Killeya-Jones – 6’11” 215 lb SO PF from Kentucky
13.7 mpg, 3.3 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 0.2 apg, 0.2 spg, 0.6 bpg, 0.7 tpg, .584 FG%, .564 FT%, .000 3P%

Most of Big Blue Nation was celebrating when Coach Cal managed to snag a commitment from 5 star EJ Montgomery out from under the nose of Coach K….one member who might not have been so jubilant was Sacha Killeya-Jones. Killeya-Jones was a 5 star recruit coming out of high school and was a member of Kentucky’s highly vaunted 2016 recruiting class. As is sometimes the case with the Wildcats, being a 5 star isn’t always enough to earn minutes. He was forgotten as a freshman, ending the season with 19 straight DNPs because he was “behind the other guys” as Coach Cal put it. As a sophomore, he carved out a consistent role despite the presence of several talented freshmen at his position. He earned his 14 minutes a game with his defense, he was among the best in the country at neutralizing opposing posts. Even if he was caught in space against quicker guards he held his own and used his length to deny penetration. Scoring was never his role on the court but he was efficient when he had his chances. His best game of the season was against top competition, scoring 8 points, securing 9 rebounds, and denying three shots. While Killyea-Jones never got major minutes at Kentucky, he has limitless potential and will be one of the hottest names on the transfer market.

Update (4/17): North Carolina is confirmed to be recruiting the Chapel Hill native.

4. Marcus Carr – 6’1” 185 lb FR PG from Pittsburgh
28.6 mpg, 10.0 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 4.0 apg, 0.6 spg, 0.1 bpg, 2.8 tpg, .396 FG%, .818 FT%, .333 3P%

Marcus Carr is part of the avalanche of transfer requests out of Pitt that came after their disastrous 0-18 finish in the ACC this past season. Carr was initially attracted to Pitt because of the opportunity for instant playing time as a 3.5 star freshman but all that losing can take its toll. Carr certainly made the most of the available playing time. He was the starting PG from Day 1 in the Zoo. Carr finished as the second leading scorer on the team with 10 points per game and led the team in assists. His passing was downright pretty at times and he managed two double doubles with points and assists, one against Oklahoma State and the other against Syracuse. His assists are doubly impressive when you consider the quality of teammates Carr had to pass to. His offensive efficiency numbers left a lot to be desired but that is to be expected when you are the best player on a terrible team. Despite being the main focus of defenses, he showed some offensive flashes that were tantalizing, for example, his 22-point, 8/11 shooting night against defending national champions North Carolina. Defensively, Carr not only held his own but stopped some very talented opponents in the ACC. His defense was best on the team and is ahead of his offense. Carr will be able to pick from his choice of top programs and has already heard from the likes of Cincinnati, Gonzaga, Iowa State, Minnesota, Ohio State, Texas, Xavier, and…..none other than Marquette.

Update (4/10): Add UConn and Villanova to the list of teams who been connected with Carr

5. Malachi Flynn- 6’1” 170 lb SO PG from Washington State
33.4 mpg, 15.8 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 4.3 apg, 1.6 spg, 0.1 bpg, 2.1 tpg, .413 FG%, .846 FT%, .338 3P%

The Washington State Cougars have had the dubious distinction of being the worst team in the worst high major conference for a couple of years running now. There have been few bright spots in Pullman and Cougar fans are losing one of them. Malachi Flynn has been starting for Ernie Kent the past two seasons. He started as an off guard before taking over as the point in 17-18. His outside shot is strong enough to keep defenses honest but he makes his money off the bounce. He is lethal attacking out of the pick and roll and unstoppable in isolation. In 56 possessions where Flynn took his defender in isolation, he scored 77 points. That 1.375 points per possession was in the top 1% of all Division 1 players in isolation. Combine that with his passing ability and his drive and kick game is hard to match. His defense isn’t quite as good as his offense but he was still ranked in the top third of all defenders despite playing against mostly high major scorers. Flynn’s best game of the season came in Washington State’s upset win over the Oregon Ducks where he scored 28 points, grabbed 8 rebounds, dished out 5 assists, and stole the ball four times. This level of explosiveness makes him one of the top transfer options this season and he should end up at a top high major.

Update (4/17): Flynn is visiting Creighton this upcoming weekend. He is also getting love from Texas A&M, Baylor, San Diego State, Boise State, Gonzaga, Nevada, St. John’s, and Virginia Tech.

6. MaCio Teague- 6’3” 185 lb SO SG from UNC Asheville
35.3 mpg, 16.7 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 2.5 apg, 1.6 spg, 0.1 bpg, 2.1 tpg, .418 FG%, .866 FT%, .425 3P%

Any Marquette fans up for Andrew Rowsey 2.0? Meet MaCio Teague. Teague is a sharpshooting guard from Rowsey’s alma mater of UNC Asheville. Similar to the recent MU graduate, he shot over 42% with nearly 100 makes from downtown, is transferring as sophomore after winning Big South Freshman of the Year, and even had a similar FT% at 88.6%. One thing that this former Bulldog brings that Rowsey didn’t is size. Standing at 6’3”, Teague looks much more like a high major SG and it showed on the defensive end. Teague was one of the statistically stronger defensive players for UNC-Asheville, using his length to shut down shooters on the perimeter. While he was good at denying shooters, his ability to deny penetration is still a concern. The team lucky enough to land Teague is going to get an elite level shooter who can stretch out defenses or attack off the dribble. There is one thing that might give some teams pause. Teague faced two teams that earned at large NCAA bids last season. Against Rhode Island he scored 12 points but turned it over an alarming 8 times. At Clemson, he was held to 2 points on 1-9 shooting. Neither was the strongest showing though he did do well against high majors Vanderbilt and USC. Louisville, Ohio State, Virginia, and Xavier are the first schools reported to be after his services.

7. Zane Martin- 6’4” 205 lb SO SG from Towson
30.2 mpg, 19.8 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 2.7 apg, 0.8 spg, 0.2 bpg, 2.4 tpg, .458 FG%, .696 FT%, .380 3P%

Conventional basketball wisdom teaches us that players typically make a big jump between their freshman and sophomore seasons. Few exemplify that as well as Towson’s Zane Martin. As a freshman, he was a run of the mill low major bench player, scoring about 5.5 points a game and shooting under 40% from the floor. When he returned as a sophomore, Martin blew those offensive numbers out of the water. Martin was one of the top scorers in the country, averaging nearly 20 points a game and shooting a cool 46% from the floor including 38% from long range. He did this while also increasing his presence on the boards and leading the team in dimes. Standing at 6’4” and weighing over 200 lbs as a low major PG allowed him to physically overpower a lot of his defenders. This also allowed him to draw fouls at a high rate resulting in over 150 FTAs last season. While he was usually the one facilitating the offense, he was an elite shooter when he could pull up off a catch. All this offensive ability should earn Martin a litany of high major offers though his defense will be a question mark at the next level.

8. Darious Hall- 6’6” 202 lb FR SF from Arkansas
14.8 mpg, 5.1 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 0.5 apg, 0.5 spg, 0.2 bpg, 1.1 tpg, .500 FG%, .563 FT% .406 3P%

Darious Hall wasn’t highly ranked coming out of high school, his final composite ranking just barely snuck inside the top 300. That didn’t stop the Little Rock native from making a big impact as a freshman for his hometown Razorbacks. Hall was the 2nd or 3rd player off the bench in most games for Mike Anderson. Arkansas’ three best players were a trio of point guards and Hall would sub in whenever one of them needed a breather or when the Razorbacks needed a little more size. Hall struggled a bit in the halfcourt as he was clearly the 4th or 5th scoring option any time he was on the floor. He showed some limited ability with the pick and roll, both as a handler and popping out for a jumpshot. He also shot a very good 40.6% from beyond the arc, but only had 13 makes on the season. Where Hall excelled was outside the halfcourt offense. He ran the floor very well and scored 41 points in transition. He also boasted on excellent offensive rebounding rate and would put them back for two points almost automatically. Hall’s defense showed some promise as the year went on, the Arkansas defense forced a turnover in 1 out of 5 of all the possessions were Hall was on the floor. One on one he could get exposed by quicker players. After the mandatory redshirt year, Hall will have three years of eligibility left and is just scratching the surface of his potential. He did play for Team Penny at some EYBL events during his high school days. With Penny Hardaway getting the head coaching job at Memphis, there is some speculation that Hall will head his way.

Update (4/17): West Virginia, Memphis, Dayton, DePaul, Creighton, Western Kentucky, Middle Tennessee State, Iowa State, Nevada, and several low majors have reached out to Darious Hall

9. Koby McEwen- 6’3” 180 lb SO PG from Utah State
32.3 mpg, 15.6 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 3.2 apg, 0.8 spg, 0.0 bpg, 3.0 tpg, .400 FG%, .725 FT%, .333 3P%

Things have not been going well for the Utah State Aggies since the retirement of the legendary Stew Morrill. Three straight seasons of around .500 ball was enough to get head coach and Morrill disciple Tim Duryea fired. The coaching change was enough to get their starting PG, Koby McEwen, to look for greener pastures. Hailing from our frozen neighbors to the north, McEwen was a huge recruiting coup for Duryea. He was the highest rated recruit he brought in his short tenure (#175 in 247 composite) and was a top 100 player in some services. As a freshman, he averaged 15 points, 5 boards, and 3 assists en route to the Mountain West Freshman of the Year award. McEwen improved on those raw numbers as a sophomore, but his efficiency numbers went down. His overall FG% dropped 6% and his 3P% went from a superb 42% to a mediocre 33%. Offensively, McEwen loves to attack the rim. He draws lot of fouls and can finish through contact. He rebounds extremely well for his size and had a very respectable assist rate. What will hold him back is his defense. He was dreadful as a sophomore, ranking the bottom 15% for all Division 1 players. However, upon further review, it was revealed that he had solid, but not great defensive numbers as a freshman. The most interesting tidbit was his pick and roll defense. He went from giving up 0.571 points per possession against the pick and roll (86th percentile) as a freshman, to 1.127 points ppp (5th percentile) as a sophomore. I don’t think McEwen suddenly forgot how to defend between the two years, so there is hope that could be a decent defender in the future. With a year off to regain his outside shot and defense, McEwen could become a high quality starting PG for most squads. Good thing, because Marquette is one of several schools that have already reached out to McEwen, along with Creighton, Ohio State, Oregon, Iowa State, Tennessee, and Arizona State.

Update (4/10): McEwen is down to a final three: Creighton, Grand Canyon, and none other than Marquette

Update (4/17): McEwen has already visited Grand Canyon and is visiting Marquette this coming weekend

10. Bryson Williams- 6’8” 225 lb SO PF from Fresno State
28.6 mpg, 13.8 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 1.2 apg, 0.5 spg, 0.7 bpg, 1.8 tpg, .596 FG%, .602 FT%, .250 3P% (1-4 3P)

This is a name that a few Marquette fans might be vaguely familiar with. Two seasons ago, the Fresno State Bulldogs gave Marquette quite a scare on their home floor before losing by 3. While not the main ingredient, freshman Bryson Williams was a big part of that game, scoring 10 points on an efficient 5/6 from the floor. Williams has come a long way since then and finished last season as one of the top 2 or 3 players on a top 100 Fresno State squad. Offensive efficiency is the name of Williams game. His 59.6% FG% was one of the best in the Mountain West and his points per possession was in the top 12% of all Division 1 players. Though a bit undersized at 225 lbs, Williams is a back to the basket big with good hands and some pretty footwork. He can step out and hit jump shots out to about 15 feet but that is not a strong part of his game. He cleans up the boards well and excels at putting offensive rebounds for easy points. Unlike most bigs, he does well covering defenders in space and can even hold his own on the perimeter. His interior defense is where he struggled as he was often outmuscled by larger posts. Williams also average 3.2 fouls a game which often meant he spent the end of games watching from the bench. Williams transfer is a bit surprising as he is a native of Fresno. The Bulldogs coach did leave after the season for UTEP of all places, but Williams claims that has nothing to do with his transfer. He says he is transferring to improve his game. Look for Williams to land at one of the many high majors that are sure to be chasing him in the coming weeks. If there is any doubt about his ability to compete with high majors, just ask Arkansas fans about him. Williams went off for 22 points and 9 rebounds before fouling out in Fayetteville.

11. Dachon Burke- 6’4” 180 lb SO SG from Robert Morris
32.6 mpg, 17.6 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 2.5 apg, 2.1 spg, 0.5 bpg, 2.7 tpg, .459 FG%, .628 FT%, .338 3P%

Poor Robert Morris. For the third consecutive season the Colonials are losing their leading scorer to transfer. First it was Rodney Pryor (who went to Georgetown), then Isaiah Still (Iona) and now it is Dachon Burke. Burke is a large bully of a guard originally from Jersey. He spent the last year terrorizing the NEC with his quick hands, motor, and pit bull like defense. Burke played both on and off the ball for the Colonials. He loves attacking out of the pick and roll, either willing himself to the hole or handing off to a rolling big man. His true offensive bread and butter is in the open floor. Burke is a savant at jumping passing lanes for easy run out opportunities. Even when he doesn’t create the opportunity, transition is where he can use his athleticism and size to its fullest potential. Defensively, Burke is one of the strongest on this list. He has obvious disruption ability with his 2.1 steals per game, but also excelled at closing out on shooters and blowing up pick and roll plays. You also can’t talk about Burke without mentioning his ability on the glass. Despite only weighing in at 180 lbs, Burke was second on the team with 5.8 rebounds a contest. These numbers are a testament to his motor and that will be invaluable as he takes the next step. While he has some PG experience, he projects more as a shooting guard at the high major level. Speaking of high majors, Burke has already heard from several including Michigan, St. John’s, Miami (Fl), Arizona, Pitt, and Marquette. Wichita State and Nevada are also involved.

12. Jacob Young- 6’2” 185 lb SO SG from Texas
16.8 mpg, 6.2 ppg, 1.7 rpg, 0.7 apg, 0.7 spg, 0.0 bpg, 0.6 tpg, .413 FG%, .682 FT%, .323 3P%

Jacob Young is an undersized scoring guard from Houston. He committed to Shaka Smart to play a few hours up Highway 290 and has been a key bench player for the past two seasons. If you had to pick a word to describe Young it might be inconsistent. Young seemed to be one of those players who is either on or off. He’s either gonna score 8+ points or not score at all (with a bunch of missed FGAs). Young is a scorer but he lacks the skill to take his man off the dribble. In the halfcourt, he relies on his three-point shot which at 32.3% is not an accurate enough weapon. Most of his damage was actually done in the open floor. 90 of his 187 points last season came in transition opportunities where he could use his superior speed and athleticism to get easy points. The transition opportunities were often of his own creation as he was a very solid on ball defender. He struggled with taller guards shooting over him, but he has very good footwork and could keep his assignment from penetrating or running off screens. Towards the end of the season, Young inadvertently benefitted from the FBI probe that has permeated college basketball this season. Eric Davis, the Longhorn’s starting SG, was accused in a Yahoo report of accepting a $1500 loan from embattled agent Andy Miller. Texas responded by benching Davis Jr as a precaution and Young’s playing time was elevated. Young got 28+ minutes in Texas’ last 6 games, including the B12 tournament and the NCAA OT loss to Nevada. Young responded with his most consistent stretch of the season, scoring 8+ points in each game, including a 29-point outburst against Texas Tech. Unfortunately, sometimes an unacceptable number of attempts were required in order to get those points. Young went 2-7, 1-7, and 1-6 from range in 3 of those 6 games. Young is limited by being 6’2” with no apparent PG skills, but he brings sound defense and scoring potential. He should be able to find a spot at a top mid major or a solid high major program.

13. Carson Williams- 6’7” 220 lb SO SF from Northern Kentucky
26.9 mpg, 12.0 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 1.2 apg, 0.9 spg, 0.4 bpg, 1.4 tpg, .608 FG%, .649 FT%, .368 3P%

While not a traditional basketball power, the Norse of Northern Kentucky have had a very good run since elevating themselves into the Horizon league. They made the NCAA tournament two years ago and were the Horizon regular season champions this past season. These two successful campaigns were partially fueled by Carson Williams. The Norse recruited Williams out of nearby Owentown, KY where Williams had earned the title of Mr. Basketball as a high school senior. Williams started his freshman year as a tweener between the 3 and 4 positions. As a sophomore, he was one of their big three, matching up with big man Drew McDonald and point guard Lavone Holland to score a majority of the Norse’s buckets. Offensively, Williams is very active off of the ball. He loves catching the ball while cutting to the hoop and finishing at the rim. He can also catch the ball in the post and use his speed and footwork to outmaneuver flat footed bigs. His 60.8% shooting was among the best in his conference. Williams can step out and shoot a three but has only made 7 in his career. On defense, he was solid but often found himself overmatched when going against more traditional post players. Williams was a starter for a top 100 team. With an offseason to further develop an outside shot, he could be an effective contributor at the high major level.

14. Marcus Burk- 6’3” 205 lb SO SG from Campbell
31.8 mpg, 14.8 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 1.2 apg, 1.3 spg, 0.2 bpg, 1.4 tpg, .490 FG%, .850 FT%, .403 3P%

It is truly hard to think of a player with a purer offense than Marcus Burk. The former Fighting Camel is the definition of efficiency with an eFG% of 61.9%. 61.9%…..not an error and yes this was as a shooting guard not a big man scoring easy layups and dunks. Most of this was due to Burk’s superb outside shooting, making 91 treys at a 40.3% clip, not quite Marquette numbers but still among the best in the country. His two point shooting wasn’t too shabby either at 64.6%. Burk uses his three-point shooting prowess to get defenders to overcommit before cutting in for a cool two points. At first glance, his defensive stats don’t seem great, but a closer look reveals that while Burk struggled guarding spot up shooters (which is at least a little bad luck because the guy still needs to make the shot) he was a very good on ball defender who was hard to take one on one and very good at disrupting pick and rolls and hand off plays. Campbell was a solid low major who made an appearance and even won a game in the CBI tournament. If there was a red flag on Burk it would be his poor performance against Penn State, Campbell’s season opener and lone game against a high major. Burk went 0/6 from the floor and fouled out. It may have been early season jitters because he did something similar in their next game against a non Division 1 opponent. After that two game slow start, Burk exploded for 33 points and started a streak where he scored 17 or more points in 9 out of 11 games. Burk could be a three and d specialist for a lot of high majors after his year off.

15. James Scott- 6’5” 188 lb SO SG from Kennesaw State
31.8 mpg, 17.3 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 2.2 apg, 1.7 spg, 0.2 bpg, 2.7 tpg, .416 FG%, .800 FT%, .340 3P%

James Scott is a high scoring on high usage guard out of Kennesaw State. The New Jersey native averaged a cool 17 points and carried a struggling Owl squad. One might make the assumption that Scott earned those points by running up the score against Atlantic Sun opponents. While partially true, Scott lit up his fair sure of high major defenses. Butler (26 points, 10-19 shooting), Florida State (19, 7-18), Washington (21 points 9-19), and Texas Tech (19, 7-17) all struggled to contain to Scott this past season. Scott is a master of the pick and roll and has some limited talent in the mid-range. On the other end, Scott leave a lot to be desired. His steal rate is solid but he is one of those defenders that either got the steal or got beat. Scott has some solid bloodlines. His father James Scott Sr. played for St. John’s in the early 90s and got a cup of coffee in the NBA. Speaking of St. John’s, the younger Scott has already set up a visit with them. Virginia Tech and Nevada are also involved.

Update (4/17): Scott took an official visit to Virginia Tech last weekend along with Evansville transfer
