Patterson, NJ (Future150) -- It's early for the class of 2020, really early. So early in fact, that it will be almost another 18 months before college coaches can being to really reach out to players in the class directly; and that's when the recruitment process really begins to take shape.
But schools have begun to offer players earlier and earlier in their careers, and still have contact with players' parents and coaches well before June 15th of their sophomore year hits.
For Paul VI (VA) point guard Jeremy Roach, a handful of high majors have already expressed interest in him at this stage. At 6-foot-2, 165 pounds, Roach already has ok size for a point guard and doesn't appear to be done growing. A dynamic lead guard, his game is a mixture of athleticism and high basketball IQ. He has the ability to create for others, as well as score at the rim or in the mid-range.
With such a bright future, it's fairly to see why Virginia already offered the talented in-state product. Meanwhile, Villanova, Syracuse, WVU and Maryland have begun to show interest as well.
Roach has already been on WVU's campus back in September, and is looking to take unofficials to UVA and Maryland in the coming weeks. Obviously things are just getting started for the Team Takeover floor general, but it appears that he will be one of the most sought after play makers in the class of 2020.
