Now that the 2019 class appears to be set, it's time to start the next year. Deuce Turner, a 6-2 SG from Malvern Prep visited last week and came away with an offer. Turner, as a soph, was 1st team All-Main Line and 3rd team All-State while averaging 20.4 ppg, 5.9 rpg, and 3.0 apg.

Here are the 2020 recruits identified thus far. There are likely others, so please let me know if I've missed some.

Bison coaches have been active recently in looking at potential 2020 recruits. Players who Joe Meehan looked at this week include:

- Robby Devries 6-3 CG (TX)
- Grant Bulmash 6-5 wing (TX) - attends the Greenhill School, where Jaye Andrews coached for a number of years.
- Drake Muller 6-5 wing (TX) - also plays for Greenhill.
- Tay Mosher 6-6 SF (TX) - 2021.


One advantage of BU having finished up the 2019 recruiting is that there is a lot more time to scout out 2020 players and develop relationships. Note that none of the above players have offers at this point. Whether any of them get an offer will depend mostly on how they play over the next nine months.

"Bucknell has offered 6’8” Class of 2020 G/F Caleb Dorsey. An all-league and all-academic selection (4.1 gpa), Dorsey led this year’s team in scoring, rebounds, and assists. Will play AAU with Team Durant."

Dorsey has offers from Lehigh, Loyola, and UMBC. He plays for the Hill School in PA.

Two more offers:

1. Ryan Evans 6-3 SG (CA) who plays for Mater Dei. Offers from Air Force, UC-Irvine, and Dartmouth.

2. Andre Henry 6-1 PG (CA) also from the LA area. Offers from UC-Irvine, Montana, and Cal Northridge.


With three scholarships available, I think the top priority is a pure PG, preferably a small, quick one who can defend. My second priority would be a big center - at least 6-9 - who can rebound and defend. Then third I'd like a SG/SF who can score and get to the basket.

Two more offers:

1. Jackson Threadgill 6-6 170 lb wing (NC) - Davidson Day School; Offers from Charlotte, App State, W&M, JMU.

2. Jeron Artest 6-4 CG (CA) - LA Area; Offers from St. John's (old regime), Cal-Irvine, Wyoming, and UT-Martin. Father is Ron Artest ("Metta World Peace").


I imagine Artest is a long shot, but his addition would make for an interesting backcourt with him combining with the sons of LaPhonso Ellis and King Rice. Could have an interesting father son-game. Maybe coached by the fathers of Nate Jones and Cam Ayers.

Given Alexander Rice hasn't been announced (has he?), why are we confident he's coming?

He’s definitely coming. Instagram account has “Bucknell commit” in the bio and he has routinely posted about current guys on the team. Plus, we haven’t heard about any more offers to kids in the class of 2019 otherwise I would hope the coaching staff would be all over Marcus Domask who recently decommitted from NKU. Focus is clearly on 2020 now

Rice reportedly signed an agreement with Bucknell back in November – just not the standard letter of intent. The agreement he signed may be a contract some players have used that contains an out if the coach leaves.

Maybe they do - but the timing here is not surprising. From what I heard some time ago, he signed some sort of contract with Bucknell back in November with the understanding he would sign an official letter of intent in the late signing period - which started yesterday.

Offer to Baylor Hebb. 6-2 165 lb SG from Colleyville, TX. Currently with 3 offers (Abilene Christian, UT-Arlington, and Ohio). Arlington and Ohio offers have both come in the last week. Appears to know the younger brother of Joe Fex, who is on the Bison football team

Meehan was in today to watch 6-5 wing Austin Garner at Byron Nelson H.S. north of Fort Worth. No offer yet. Garner's HS is very close to Colleyville (see above item on Hebb).

BRW apparently hasn't been able to steer the staff down to San Antonio yet.
