Recruiting Roundup - What Comes Next?

With Bolingbrook High guard Will Walker and Temple transfer Keith Butler in the fold for the class of 2006, the DePaul coaching staff has one scholarship remaining in the class. With the recent commitments of Desean Butler and Devan Bawinkel to West Virginia, what will the Blue Demons look to do with the remaining scholarship?

Don't despair DePaul fans, the staff has plenty of options remaining for that final scholarship and are keeping those options open.

If DePaul wants to go local with an Illinois recruit, there are still options available there. Thijin Moses a 6-8 forward from Boys to Men Math & English in Chicago is such an option and could be available in the spring signing period. Also still available in the current class is Carbondale's Manual Cass. Cass is listed at 6'7", but really is an undersized power forward and somewhat of a "tweener".

If they want to go big due to the graduation of senior center Marlon Brumfield, there is rising 6-11 senior Javalle McGee who recently transferred from the Detroit area to Hales Franciscan High in Chicago. McGee has recently seen his stock soar and is attracting attention from Northwestern and Virginia.

There is always the possibility of catching a late bloomer in the senior class. Each year we see a player's stock rise during his senior season that suddenly attracts attention from the high majors in the spring signing period.

With an open scholarship, the staff also has the flexibility of taking on a transfer from another program during the season. Perhaps we'll see an Illinois native who has gone away and grown homesick come to DePaul.

There is also the possibility of attracting a junior college transfer. Andres Sandoval is a 6-4 sophomore at Santa Fe Community College. Sandoval played for DePaul coach Jerry Wainwright while at Richmond.

New prospects appear on the radar almost daily. Stayed tuned to WeAreDePaul.com as we provide you with the latest updates.
