Jeremy Hemsley has made big improvements in the last year that have vaulted his status among the top prospects on the west coast in the 2015 class.

Roughly a month ago, 2015 prospects were allowed to begin being contacted on an unlimited basis by college coaches.

"I've heard from Oregon, San Diego State, UNLV, New Mexico, Washington, Northern Arizona, Stanford," Hemsley told me. The 6'3" guard from Damien High School has offers from San Diego State, UNLV, UC Irvine, New Mexico, and Boston College.

Playing alongside fellow 2015 guards Kendall Small and Stephen Thompson with the California Superior Athletes Basketball Club, Hemsley will not have a shortage of college coaches checking him out during the July evaluation period.

Playing in The Opening day of the July period at the Double Pump Summer Tipoff, Hemsley and Small had coaches from San Diego State, UNLV, and Boise State in attendance to see them.

San Diego State entered Hemsley's recruitment not that long ago, and has made an impression on him.

"(SDSU) offered me, and I like that they play fast paced and that's the type of play that I like. They're a school that I'm interested in."

Hemsley showed during the first day that he's a very good perimeter shooter and can take it to the hoop and finish with contact.

"I'm trying to show (coaches) that I have more energy than I did last year, that I'm more of a team player and that I can get the job done," Hemsley said. "I think that I'm a good driver and I find the open man real good. I think I'm a better rebounder and defender than I was last year."

Hemsley doesn't appear anywhere near to ending the recruitment process, "I'm just looking for a school that will make me feel like I'm at home even when I'm away from home, just a team that feels like a family."
