Announcing his commitment via Instagram

 

CJ Wilcher is a class of 2019 shooting guard out of Newark, NJ.  Clocking in at 6'5", the sophomore to be was rated in the top 150 coming out of high school and regarded as an elite shooter.  Wilcher saw limited playing time this season until senior SG Nate Johnson went down with an injury. It's probable that Johnson's decision to come back for another year led to Wilcher looking elsewhere for playing time.  Matt Abdelmassih had originally offered Wilcher at both St John's and Nebraska.

 

At this moment Wilcher would have to redshirt unless granted a waiver. However, he might be immediately eligible if the NCAA puts a one-time transfer exception rule into place.  Wilcher will have 4 years of eligibility left.

Recruiting the transferring brother of the 5-star recruit is the new black.

This goes a little way towards forgiving Xavier for '91.  A little.

Get this:

 

“Over at Xavier head coach Travis Steele also felt Wilcher had strong shooting ability when recruiting him initially.  ‘C.J. is the best shooter that I saw in the class of 2020 in the entire country. C.J. can make shots from all over the floor, whether in the post, off the catch or off the dribble,’ he said when the four-star initially signed.”

This is a 2 for 1 commitment, since his brother has to have Nebraska way out front.

Nothing in certain but this damn encouraging.

Bryce

Trey

CJ

Dalano

Walker

 

It might not look like it on the surface, but this potential starting lineup is a significant upgrade in talent if he gets a waiver next season.  CJ is a true SF and can shoot it.  He's perfect at the 3.  

 

If little bro joins and Bryce doesn't declare early, we could have the best backcourt in the country in two years.  Insanity.

Depending on if there are any other additions to the roster, this is what I would expect to see, if Wilcher is immediately eligible next season:

1- Trey

2- Bryce

3- Wilcher

4- Lat

5- Walker

Definitely possible.  I think it depends on Banton's weight.  He needs another 15 pounds to play the 3 or 4, and even then it might not be effective.  

 

The nice thing now is we can field a lights out 3pt lineup if we feel like it:

 

Bryce

Keisei/Kobe

CJ

Lat

WB

 

^^^ that's what a 5 out roster usually looks like on offense with a little more weight at the 5.  I don't know how often we'd use it, but Bryce could go crazy with 4 other legitimate 3pt threats outside of the lane.  P&R with WB and 3 solid shooters could be glorious.  Really, you could swap Trey or Banton at point and still be effective with a drive and kick approach.  You could also use Shamiel at the 5 and do the exact same thing with him.  3pt shooting matters so much.  

 

It's just nice to see options, and long term, that's what Fred is setting up.

Everyone seems really excited. Is it because of his younger brother? Because so far, it would appear that CJ was overrated as a 4-star in high school. What am I missing? Sorry to be pessimistic, here come the downvotes 😀

 

Overrated 4-stars still have a place on our roster right now.
