As the first of July's three evaluation periods closed, a couple new names to follow emerged as Creighton works on its first recruiting cycle as a member of the BIG EAST, and they happen to be AAU teammates.
Sam Logwood and Bryant McIntosh, members of the Eric Gordon All-Stars, picked up scholarship offers from the Jays' coaching staff following their showing in the 2013 Adidas Invitational, in Indianapolis.
Logwood, a 6-foot-7 forward, has a connection to Creighton via his school, La Lumiere. Logwood transferred to the prep school based in the Catholic tradition following two seasons at Indianapolis' Lawrence North High School. La Lumiere's basketball team is coached by former Creighton standout Alan Huss.
Logwood, an explosive athlete, excels in transition and finishes well around the rim. Auburn, Ball State Indiana State and Mississippi State are among the others to offer the three-star prospect.
Logwood's running mate on the AAU circuit, McIntosh, is also garnering increasing interest. The 6-foot-4 guard lists offers from Auburn, Dayton, Florida State, Indiana State, Marquette, Missouri, Northwestern and Xavier, in addition to the Bluejays. McIntosh was previously committed to play for the Sycamores, the first school to offer him a scholarship, but has since re-opened his recruitment.
Since the de-commitment, McIntosh has quickly added interest from collegiate coaches due to his versatility. The three-start guard has the size and shooting ability to play off the ball on the perimeter and the ball-handling skills to run the point.
Neither of the Hoosier-state talents has yet scored a scholarship from Butler or Indiana, although playing together at the collegiate level seems like a feasible option for the two members of the 2014 class. McIntosh is considering joining Logwood on an official visit to Auburn later in the summer.
Now that Logwood and McIntosh own Creighton offers, expect the Bluejays' staff to attempt to convince the summer teammates to visit campus.
