I've followed basketball recruiting closely for almost a couple decades now. Every year there are 5 stars who shouldn't be 5 stars. Usually they're uber athletic kids with no actual basketball skill.

Thank goodness he wasn't a fit for Creighton's system.  

Nebraska Basketball gains the commitment of the first 5 star freshman in school history as Bryce McGowens chooses the Huskers over Georgia.  The combination of family connections (will play alongside

My mistake.  I was looking at the Rivals recruiting and it still had him as a verbal.. 

Ahhh, they’re a bit behind then. Hopefully by next year we’ll have the chance to go to a game and actually see him play too! March 8th, 2020 Nebraska at Minnesota is the last public event I attended before Covid shutdowns. Can’t wait to go to another game.

These prep schools that recruit obviously have talented players, but they are not enjoyable to watch. Everyone “runs” the stand around and watch James Harden offense. These kids don’t have to work on defense whatsoever. I’m looking for a player who is sweating and I seriously can’t find one. Not one player even looks tired.  In my area (and I assume most others), every high school team either runs set plays on every possession, some form of a motion, or a secondary break that flows into one of the two. So, every player constantly has a purpose and job on offense. There’s non-stop movement, so defenders are constantly having to move and work as well.

Unfortunately, it took a whole lot of shots to get McGowens those points. He shot 43-131 from the field, 15-57 from 3 and 45-60 from the free-throw line with 8 assists and 15 turnovers in those seven games. 

 

Oak Hill: 23 pts, 7-18 FG (1-9 3FG), 8-11 FT, 8 reb, 1 tov, 3 blk

Hamilton Heights: 38 pts, 13-25 FG (6-13 3FG), 6-9 FT, 7 reb, 1 ast, 2 tov, 4 stl

Sunrise Christian: 10 pts, 3-17 FG (1-7 3FG), 3-6 FT, 4 reb, 4 tov, 1 blk

Montverde: 23 pts, 9-21 FG (4-9 3FG), 1-3 FT, 2 reb, 2 ast, 1 tov, 2 blk, 2 stl

Wasatch: 14 pts, 3-17 FG (2-8 3FG), 6-8 FT, 2 reb, 1 ast, 2 tov, 1 blk, 2 stl

Bishop Walsh: 18 pts, 5-15 FG (0-5 3FG), 8-9 FT, 3 reb, 2 ast, 2 tov, 2 blk

La Lumiere: 20 pts, 3-18 FG (1-6 3FG), 13-14 FT, 7 reb, 2 ast, 3 tov, 1 stl

 

In his defense, the point guard that's heading to South Carolina is pretty decent, but the rest of his team really doesn't stack up to most of the other teams in that event from what I saw. Still, he had a rough couple of weeks outside of that Hamilton Heights game.

Yikes. He should fit right in then with those shooting percentages 😂

The negative...I watched the La Lumiere game and Bryce didn't shoot well from outside.  Everyone can see that from the box scores. 

 

The positive side was he got to the rim fairly easily and drew fouls.  That's good!   Got to the line a lot and shot well.

I think he'll be as good as upperclass JPJ as a freshman, which is a hell of a compliment.  Their games are comparable.
