    It’s because he will decommit (only a verbal )now and they got wind of it so now he’s a 4 star you watch

    He seemed pretty solid. Reminds me of Magic Johnson. Except he can shoot from the outside.

    Pre season starts in Nov with the second game being NMSU. Too bad you’ll be out until next year ;)

    He actually reminds me of Julyan Stone. I think Stone was a better athlete, but this kid looks like a better shooter. With Lathon a junior next year, he looks to be the point guard of the future. Good to get a 4 star out of SoCal.

    Smart kid. Looks very strong and athletic and is probably still growing. He has come a LONG way in 3 years. CRT has a knack for spotting good PFs and Onyema fits the bill. I will be following him closely this year.

    This has to be the earliest time commitment ever. 6:30am is kinda early.

    I like that UTEP is landing big men these last couple of years as opposed to stocking up on guards.

    Is Onyema a high profile recruit?

    He’s pretty under the radar. Looks smooth and athletic.

    Wonder if lil train knows anything about him being in the same area.?

    If CRT keeps this up along with a healthy mix of solid transfers (or 3-5 star recruits), I can see deep NCAA runs in the future. #excitingtimes!

    Haven't had a chance to see him in person yet, but have talked to a few people who like his game. Late bloomer that had a really nice summer on the circuit. Sounds like a guy who will need some time to develop.

    Did some light research on him earlier today and it all depends how you want to look at his potential. IMO, I wouldn't be surprised if he redshirted. He is no Lathon but has Julyan Stone like potential.

    Man...the kid's dad (whose tweet that is) apparently hosts a Raiders podcast, and on his most recent one he talked about the trouble he had getting to El Paso for this visit. Plane/airport issues to start with, but once he got to The Don, with just a few minutes left in the game, security wouldn't let him in the game, then threatened to kick him off the premises when he got upset. Way to sell the campus to the family, security guy.

    Listen to roughly 15:00-19:00...

    Somebody on CRT/AD staff messed up somewhere. I'm not so quick to throw in house security under the bus.

    Agreed. There is a process for everything.

    That is strange given the tweet above where he is thanking CRT and UTEP for rolling out the red carpet.

    Saw him play last year, Jay vs Brandeis. He is very athletic but he was the only good player on the team, so the opposing team focused on shutting him down and that was it. Lots of potential with him, my very quick assessment of him was a poor man's version of Caracter.

    Jalen Green will announce his commitment on Xmas day. He has visited Oregon, Auburn and Memphis. FSU is recruiting hard. Kentucky visit was mutually cancelled. He hasn't narrowed his options and has been pretty quiet regarding any favorites.

    As of a couple days ago:

    "After, Green said that he didn't have a set top five but conceded that the programs that he's seen on visits -- Auburn, Fresno State, Memphis, Oregon and USC -- were in his main pack"
