One of the west’s most heavily recruited posts in 2018 is K.J. Hymes, a 6-foot-8, 190-pound sophomore from Phoenix St. Mary’s.
St. Mary’s has played a tough national schedule this season, which has tested Hymes against some talented competition.
“I’m playing alright,” Hymes said. “I need to pick it up defensively but offensively I’m doing fine. I need to be more aggressive defensively and step up and be more of a leader.”
There are several schools already trying to land Hymes, who has a new program on his list.
“Cal has been on me really hard lately,” Hymes said. “I like their coaching staff a lot. They’re a really good program and have a lot of really good pieces right now.
“I’ve also been hearing from Memphis, Georgia Tech, Clemson, Washington, Arizona State and Grand Canyon.”
Hymes doesn’t have any visits set up for the immediate future.
“I don’t think I’m going to take any until after the season,” he said.
