Good find.  I cant find much on him rankings-wise.  Verbal commits shows him as 3 stars but no rank # there or elsewhere.  Appears to have offers from DePaul, Illinois State, Louisiana Tech, and Northeastern.  Interest from Bucknell, Florida, and St Johns.  6'-5" Shooting guard class of 2020

Currently this ranking would have him graded higher than both Josiah and Chanse 

(He would be tied with Skogman and Hardnett for 4th highest rated recruit in program history)

That makes more sense I couldnt find him just as AJ.  How would he be higher than Chanse?  He is 312th overall while chanse is 256th on 247.  He doesnt have a composite rank for some reason not sure why.

Sounds like a potentially solid addition

Any connections with segu? Seems recently a lot of recruits know him and he is from FL.

Just nice to have a new prospect to consider after months being dormant.

Agree nice to have someone new to discuss.  

Here are his stats on MaxPreps.com

Points / Game:      14.8

Assists / Game:     3.0

Rebounds / Game: 6.8

He attempts 2s and 3s at about the same rate.  Shooting 56% from 2point range and 43% from 3 point range.

https://www.maxpreps.com/athlete/aj-staton/7DXjhgXCEeqAzqREozo6lw/basketball/stats.htm#year=19-20

Seems like the stats may be incomplete - as last game is 12/10/2019.  When I try to look at boxscore - the detail is not provided after that either.  Not sure what story is here.

I’m beginning to see something emerge in the type of players we are after. Many would have thought with that last scholarship we need a big. But I think Whitesell is after shooters. Knowing outside shooting has been an issue this season and rebounding has been a strength. Plus our current bigs are young. Guys like Hardnett, Mballa, Skogman and Williams (Williams may not be tall but is lengthy). Add Fagan’s 6-8 if he returns next year. So bringing in shooters will space the floor thus giving us inside outside balance.

This does not allay my concerns over potential recruiting difficulties ahead. This is only an offer. Will it lead to a commitment? That is the million dollar question.

Our recruiting success imo was linked directly to Oats' energy and Hodgson's contacts. It remains to be seen if the current staff can match their success.I remain hopeful, but it remains to be seen. Also, Buffalo basketball has been synonymous with the Big Dance over the last five years and not only that but making a splash when we got there. You just cannot replace that positive PR. The current team is teetering on the brink. It could go either way. Finishing strong would help quite a bit. On the other hand losing more stinkers like at EMU could really hamper the staff's recruiting efforts. Bottom line tonight's game is huge as is the month of February. I am excited to see how the coaches and players respond.

Grade wise, not ranking since Chanse is a different position his higher ranking in the PG category moves him higher overall. But Chanse is graded out to a .87 right now, AJ is .88

A.J's team West Oaks just beat Oak Hill.  During that game A.J scored 21 points (#2 scorer).

Also deep into article:

Staton, a shooting guard who left state champ Pompano Beach Ely to play his senior season for the Flame, has a long list of mid-major offers and is getting increasing interest from Alabama, according to Gillion.

Also found some stats from his junior year

And here we go...recruiting battle against Oats and company. I’m sorry but if Oats plays in the 3 star pool he won’t be long for the SEC.

There's been another coach on the sidelines other than JW, AT, and JQ.  A rather large gentleman.  He doesn't show up on the website.  Who is that?

He’s on the bench every game this season as far as I can remember. 

And the last few years.  He was in charge of video previously.

Nope.  Not Tom.  He's been around for years.  

The team’s psychologist is heavier as well and so is their athletic trainer, could be either of them

Come hoping to see insights on our newest target, end up with seven posts playing Guess Who about a "large" man on UB's bench. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Seriously.................

Anyways 24/7 came out and ranked him tied for 247th ranked. 

3 STAR .880 overall. He'd be the best recruit this year

We have best recruiting class in the MAC, according to 247.  If Staton chooses UB, that would make us clearly ahead of the other teams.  Fingers crossed.
