Dallas, TX (Future150) -- With an abundance of talented prospects in the gym this weekend at Triple A Academy in Dallas for the Future150 Camp, I figured it would be a good time to check in on a few prospects and see the status on their recruitment early in the fall.
King McClure (2015 CG) One of the most recognizable names in the country for his class, King has a long list of suitors. Off the top of his head, he claimed offers from high majors Indiana, Arkanas, Baylor, Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Kansas, and Kansas State.
He also mentioned interest coming his way from Florida, Duke, and UCLA. "Right now, I'm just taking the process slow," he told me.
When talking about what type of system he would like to play in at the next level, he had this to say, "I'm looking for an up-and-down style. A team that gets out in transition, like a Florida or a Kentucky."
With the amount of programs interested right now, he was quick to say that he had no real leader in his recruitment.
Jeremiah Jefferson (2014 SG): The underrated shooting guard and high school teammate of King at Triple A Academy in Dallas has several programs interested, and a few offers as well.
"UTA, Wichita State, and New Mexico State have all offered," he told me at Future150 camp.
When talking about schools taking a serious look at him, he rattled off an impressive list of West Virginia, Oklahoma, Texas, Baylor, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, SMU, and TCU.
When I asked Derrick what schools have shown the most interest outside of Texas-Arlington, he was quick to respond "Texas A&M, Northern Colorado, and Nebraska."
When asked if they were going to be a package deal at the next level, Erick said "Definitely." This makes a lot of sense considering that it is the general consensus that they play better as teammates when they can feed off of one another.
"We are looking for a school that has an uptempo system. A team that is run and gun," Derrick confirmed to me, which should not come as a surprise, considering their quickness and exceptional transition skills.
Harrison Henderson (2016 SF): The 6'6" freshman at Triple A Academy has the potential to be a very scary prospect down the line. In regards to offers right now, the freshman named "Baylor, SMU, and New Mexico State."
In regards to interested programs, the small forward rattled off Indiana, TCU, Tulsa, and LSU. As his first high school season begins, expect many more high major schools to get in the running for the youngster.
Right now, he is focused specifically on a few areas of his game. "I want to get stronger, work on my defense, and work on my conditioning. I also need to work on playing better against good competition."
