Devin Ceaser has received an offer from the Bulls.  Has offers fro Bowling Green, Virginia Tech, Towson, St.Josephs and several others.

I see Zakiir Williamson hit him on Twitter as little bro so they must have some history. Is the football staff helping our basketball team On social media? This is extreme activity for this time of year!

The only team we should lose out to on that list is VT, unless he prefers more guaranteed playing time.

I agree - based on quality of team - VT would be biggest competition

 Found some write up about him but couldn’t share it for some reason. Basically said that he’s incredibly quick and fast- track star fast, consistent three point shooter, insane ball handling skills, freakishly athletic (not afraid to dunk in traffic). The article said that his only weakness is his court vision and can become a bit more consistent from mid range. Whoever wrote the article also said that he’s a underrated high major prospect who will develop quickly

Write up by pointguardeyes earlier in this thread said similar things.  Look forward to him showing his skills in a Bulls uniform in the future

Seems like he has a relationship with Demarco Cuffey, a member of our shiny new football freshman class. They're both from Waldorf, MD. Current hoops frosh Zaakir Williamson also showed him some DMV love.

Wonder if the Pattersons and others have helped create a nice pipeline from the Mid-Atlantic for the big two sports. I like the idea of dominating the eastern edge of MAC territory and reaching places the other schools may not.

It will be interesting to watch the recruiting evolution this year. With success in football and basketball that’s great, add in the Buffalo alumni with BlueCollar U and Coach Mo getting our football players back in the mix, we could continue to improve our recruiting classes year after year. Our basketball recruiting class this year is ranked #1 on 247Sports. Football not at high but they seem to rank football on volume as much as quality from what I see.

They only list 6 commitments in the whole conference though, so how reliable are they?

I compiled some facts about the incoming MAC freshman class.  Here are those facts:

Some observations that suggest possible that UB class at top of MAC include:

  • Highest (out of 2) ranked recruit on 247sports - Mading at 0.8756.  It seems that COVID may have resulted in fewer players being ranked on 247sports.
  • Only two recruits ranked 3 stars on verbalcommits - both committed to UB.
  • Average number of offers - highest for Buffalo.
  • Average of 3 top 100 offers for three recruits (2 other than Buffalo).
  • Average rank of UB recruits best offer is lowest at 56.

Of course, the quality of recruits will have to be proven on the court over the next four years - but there are some encouraging signs that our incoming class is at or near the top of the MAC.

One other interesting fact - not many of the players show up in BT top 10 contributors.  I attribute this to seniors sticking around for another year.

Great information, unfortunately 247 is missing a few things. Ohio signed a 247 3-star, Top-250 player earlier this year, AJ Clayton. He reclassified from 2022 to 21' and was getting looks from all of the big Ohio schools despite being from the middle of nowhere.

The transfer portal also plays a big role in this and it's often hard to quantify a newcomer's value. Take for instance, Jason Carter from Xavier to Ohio. He was a star in the MAC but an average contributor at Xavier. What will he be like back on the Bobcats?

One last tidbit after not seeing this mentioned anywhere, Ohio also added a Rivals Top-150 (#135) verbal for 2022 in Aidan Hadaway who chose the Bobcats over Georgia. Right now, it appears to be a two-way recruiting battle in the MAC between UB and OU.

Neither has a distinct advantage over the other as long as Boals and Whitesell remain.

Love it, I’m all for better competition in conference
