Justin Flowe joins Noah Sewell as five-star Oregon inside linebacker commits

Oregon has the commitment of the top two inside linebackers in the 2020 class: Justin Flowe and Noah Sewell.

Oregon already had a strong piece at inside linebacker with the November commitment of Noah Sewell.

With the addition of Justin Flowe on Early Signing Day, the Ducks now have the two top-rated inside linebackers in the country.

They’re just piling onto last year’s class that was highlighted by 2018 ALL-USA Defensive Player of the Year and 2019 Pac-12 Football Freshman Defensive Player of the Year Kayvon Thibodeaux.

Flowe played a role on all three phases of the game this season. He had 123 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and 10 sacks with five forced fumbles. On special teams, he had a blocked punt and a blocked field goal. On offense, he carried the ball 23 times for 238 yards and five touchdowns.

Ranked No. 4 in the Chosen 25, Flowe is now the second-highest-ranked Oregon commit of all time, behind only Thibodeaux, according to OregonLive.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound athlete chose Clemson over finalists Clemson, Miami and USC.

Sewell, who missed time early in the season, finished the year with 103 tackles, 12 TFLs and 4 sacks in just 10 games. On offense, he had 968 total yards and 16 touchdowns.

He is the No. 9 all-time Oregon commit, according to OregonLive.

Oregon won the Pac-12 championship, earning a trip to the Rose Bowl, and are No. 6 in the rankings. With Flowe and Sewell coming aboard to beef up the defense, the Ducks are gearing up for a run at the College Football Playoffs in the near future.

Jordan Burch becomes highest-ranked South Carolina commit since Jadeveon Clowney

South Carolina football got the commitment of the top in-state recruit Jordan Burch.

Jordan Burch, the No. 2 player in the Chosen 25, has elected to stay in state.

The strong-side defensive end has committed to South Carolina with plans to sign Wednesday and enroll over summer.

Burch committed to South Carolina over schools including Alabama, Clemson, Georgia and LSU, according to 247Sports.

He is the highest-rated South Carolina commit since Jadeveon Clowney in 2011.

This season, the 6-foot-5, 275-pound athlete had 53 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and nine sacks to help Hammond School (Columbia, South Carolina) go 12-2 and win the 3A state championship.

[lawrence-related id=101416876,101416868]

At South Carolina, Burch can pair up on the defensive line with a top-10 player from the 2019 class, Zacch Pickens, who was also the top player in South Carolina coming out of high school.

The Gamecocks have now secured the commitment of the top four in-state players in the 2020 class: Burch, four-star dual-threat quarterback Luke Doty, and four-star defensive tackles Alex Huntley and Tonka Hemingway.

The class is now ranked No. 17 in the country on 247Sports.

Jalen Green holding off on decision, talks Fresno State official

Prolific Prep combo guard Jalen Green said he won’t decide until his season is over.

Initially, Prolific Prep (Napa, California) combo guard Jalen Green said he was going to make his decision on Christmas but pushed it back to “after the season” in order to gather more information about schools.

RELATED: Chosen 25 Basketball Rankings

“I want to watch the games and see everything this season,” Green said. “I want to talk to them more and see what they’re views are and everything like that.”

Green, who checks in at No. 3 overall in USA Today Sport’s Chosen 25, has taken officials to Memphis, Oregon, Auburn, USC and most recently to Fresno State.

“It went good,” Green said of the visit to Fresno State. “I’m already close with Coach (Justin) Hutson and them out there. I’ve known them for a minute now. It was fun just catching up with them and talking to them and seeing what their plan was for me.”

RELATED: Sharife Cooper dominating senior season

Still, even with the officials in the books, Green was adamant that those schools were not his top five.

“I don’t even have a top five,” Green said. “I’m just watching everything and getting all of the information from different schools. I’m not rushing through anything because it’s a big decision.”

Top 10 holds strong in Week 1 Super 25 Boys Basketball Rankings

Montverde Academy remains No. 1 in Week 1 of the USA Today Super 25 boys basketball rankings.

[jwplayer dMUaeX2j-BmKM743H]

The proverbial dust has settled on the preseason Super 25 Boys Basketball rankings, and the top 10 have remained intact in the Week 1.

FULL RANKINGS: Super 25 Boys Rankings, Week 1

Top-ranked Montverde (Florida) Academy had a strong showing at the Thanksgiving Hoopfest in Dallas this past weekend, demolishing then No. 22 Duncanville (Texas) 84-51 and then Yates (Houston) 98-46.

Eagles point guard Cade Cunningham, an Oklahoma State signee who is ranked No. 1 overall in USA Today Sports’ Chosen 25 for 2020, led a balanced attack averaging 14 points, eight assists and six rebounds for the weekend.

Prolific Prep (Napa, California), ranked No. 5, was also impressive at the Hoopfest, but the Crew will face its toughest challenge of the early season when they square off against No. 3 Hillcrest Prep (Phoenix) at Hoophall West on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET (ESPN2).

McEachern (Powder Springs, Georgia), ranked No. 6, had an impressive 87-79 home win over then-No. 12 Mayfair (Lakewood, California) at the Thanksgiving Shootout; reigning ALL-USA Player of the Year Sharife Cooper, an Auburn signee who is ranked No. 2 in the Chosen 25, posted 44 points, eight rebounds and six assists in the win.

Both Duncanville and Rancho Christian School (Temecula, California) suffered two losses and subsequently fell out of the rankings, which opened the door for Briarcrest Christian School (Eads, Tennessee) and Gonzaga College (Washington, D.C.) to debut in the Super 25.

Chosen 25 guard Cam Thomas commits to LSU

Oak Hill Academy 5-star guard Cam Thomas puts his recruitment to bed, commits to LSU.

[jwplayer Ws2udqtf-BmKM743H]

Last week, Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Virginia) shooting guard Cam Thomas told USA TODAY Sports that it was “possible” that he could make his decision during the NCAA’s Early Signing Period, which runs from Nov. 13-20.

On Monday, the ALL-USA Preseason selection upgraded the possible to actual, picking LSU over UCLA.

Thomas is arguably the top scorer in the country, averaging 35 points a game on the No. 14 team in USA Today’s Super 25. This past summer he led the Nike EYBL in scoring, averaging 30 points a game.

“Scoring isn’t hard for me,” Thomas told USA Today Sports. “I feel like I was born to do it. I just look at it as me doing my job for my team to win. I don’t see it as anything special.”

Thomas is ranked No. 11 overall in USA Today Sports’ Chosen 25.

The Isaiah Jackson Blog: This is why I chose Kentucky…

Kentucky’s newest commit Isaiah Jackson did an exclusive blog with USA Today Sports breaking down why he chose the Wildcats.

Waterford Mott (Waterford Township, Michigan) forward Isaiah Jackson is ranked No. 22 overall in USA Today Sports’ Chosen 25 for 2020 and just committed to Kentucky. He did an exclusive blog with USA Today Sports about the reasons behind his decision.

What’s up world, it’s Isaiah Jackson and as you can see I just committed to the University of Kentucky!

This was a dream come true for me.

RELATED: 17 Super 25 teams featured in GEICO ESPN Showcase

Once Coach Cal started recruiting me I feel like my passion for Kentucky just grew even more. Don’t get me wrong, it was a hard decision because all three of the schools recruiting me did a great job, but my heart was just with Kentucky.

I think the moment where it turned for Kentucky was after my visit to Alabama.

That’s when I sat down with my family and really talked about it and it was clear that I was going there. I just feel like it gives me the best chance to get better and the best chance to win.

The class we’re bringing in is gonna be crazy with myself, BJ, Terrence, Cam, Lance and Devin. I just feel like we have the right pieces to win a national title.

That’s what we all expect and we’re all already talking about it.


Super 25 Boys Rankings | ALL-USA Boys | ALL-USA Girls

We’re not done either. I don’t know who I’ll go after right now, but I’m definitely gonna be recruiting guys hard to come to Kentucky.

The coaches at Kentucky are comparing me to Anthony Davis, just a guy who blocks shots, runs the floor, plays the pick-and-roll and shots the J. Obviously, Anthony Davis is one of the best players in the world so that’s big for me to hear, but it just motivates me to work harder.

When I told Coach Cal about my decision I could tell that he was really happy and excited; that made me even more excited.

I’m planning to sign my NLI today too so I’m gonna have it all over with and that’s a great feeling too.

Now, I can just focus on my season and my books.

Tonight I’ll probably go out to eat with my family to celebrate.

OK, guys I just wanted to explain my decision for you a little more in-depth, but I have to get going now.

Thanks again for reading and GO BBN!

Jonathan Kuminga retains top spot in new 2021 Chosen 25 Boys Basketball Recruiting Rankings

Jonathan Kuminga sits atop the updated Chosen 25 Boys Basketball Recruiting Rankings. Check out the top 25 recruits in the county.

The USA TODAY Chosen 25 Boys Basketball rankings for the Class of 2021 are compiled by Jason Jordan with input from USA TODAY Sports staff, recruiting experts and writers from around the country. The Chosen 25 is based heavily on current production – high school or spring/summer – on the stat sheet and otherwise. It also takes into account how the player projects as a prospect at the next level and beyond.

In all, six players in the new Chosen 25 made the ALL-USA preseason boys basketball team, including Patrick School (Hillside, New Jersey) wing Jonathan Kuminga, who retained his spot at No. 1.

Hamilton High School (Sussex, Wisconsin) wing Patrick Baldwin Jr., O’Dea High School (Seattle) forward Paolo Banchero, Hillcrest Prep (Phoenix) forward Michael Foster and Archbishop Stepniac High School (White Plains, New York) forward A.J. Griffin round out the top five.

With the start of the Early Signing Period a day behind us, here’s a look at our latest update in the Class of 2021.

Early Signing Period: Recapping Day One

We break down the news and happenings from day one of the Early Signing Period.

Ask any college basketball coach and he’ll tell you that, as excited as they are to get commitments from elite players, they don’t fully breathe a sigh of relief until they’re holding a signed National Letter of Intent.
Wednesday kicked off the NCAA’s Early Signing Period and from USA Today’s Chosen 25 stars still mulling over decisions to super teams being formed we’ve managed to zero-in on the biggest news from around the country from day one.

RELATED: USA Today’s Super 25 Basketball Rankings

Cade Cunningham made it official

After Cunningham committed to Oklahoma State last week, speculation ran rampant that the top player in the Chosen 25 could potentially hold off on signing until the spring, but at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Cunningham, a point guard at Montverde (Florida) Academy, put pen to paper and made it official to the Cowboys. Cunningham is the highest ranked recruit in Oklahoma State’s history and is projected to be the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Oklahoma State hired Cunningham’s brother, Cannen, to be an assistant on head coach Mike Boynton’s staff in June, which Cunningham said is what ultimately helped the Cowboys win out.

Michigan commit Isaiah Todd to wait until the spring

Todd is the highest ranked (No. 8 in the Chosen 25) committed recruit that does not plan to sign during the Early Period. Todd, a forward at Word of God Christian Academy (Raleigh, North Carolina), said he “can’t wait” to play at Michigan next season, but isn’t ready to sign.

Josh Hall could make the call soon

The Moravian Prep (Hickory, North Carolina) wing is expected to make his decision during the Early Signing Period with a top three of N.C. State, DePaul and Louisville. Hall, a five-star prospect, would be ranked in USA Today Sports’ Chosen 25 if not for his reclassification last season. His come-out party came this summer when he dominated his one and only session on the Nike EYBL with Team CP3 (North Carolina), averaging 30 points a game. Sources indicate that Hall’s commitment could potentially come this weekend.

Best fall signing classes

From Duke’s depth Chosen 25 and four-star talent to Texas Tech’s emergence as a contender we analyze the top five classes for 2020.

1. Duke: When IMG Academy (Bradenton, Florida) center Mark Williams committed to Duke earlier this month, he posed a question regarding Duke’s 2020 class: “What don’t we have?” The Blue Devils have depth and elite talent with three Chosen 25 players (IMG’s Jalen Johnson, Whitney Young (Chicago) combo guard D.J. Steward, Huntington (West Virginia) Prep wing Jaemyn Brakefield), four-star studs (Williams, Virginia Episcopal (Richmond, Virginia) forward Henry Coleman III) and Paul VI (Fairfax, Virginia) point guard Jeremy Roach, who would be ranked in the Chosen 25 if not for sitting out all last season with a torn ACL. Roach will play this season.

2. North Carolina: The Tar Heels have a talented haul with three Chosen 25 players (Montverde Academy forward Day’Ron Sharpe, Christian Brothers (St. Louis, Missouri) point guard Caleb Love, Woodward Academy (Fairburn, Georgia) center Walker Kessler), and two four-star scoring wings (Hillcrest Prep’s (Phoenix) Puff Johnson, Archbishop Stepinac’s (White Plains, New York) R.J. Davis).

3. Kentucky: The Wildcats boast two of the best perimeter players in the class in Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, California) shooting guard B.J. Boston and Brewster Academy (Wolfeboro, New Hampshire) shooting guard Terrence Clarke, both of which are ranked in the Chosen 25. Kentucky also has two four-star forwards (Vashon’s (St. Louis, Missouri) Cam’Ron Fletcher, Camden’s (New Jersey) Lance Ware) in the stable.

4. Tennessee: The Vols landed a big fish last month in IMG Academy combo guard Jaden Springer, a Chosen 25 star. He joins The Webb (Bell Buckle, Tennessee) shooting guard Keon Johnson, a four-star recruit who was just on the cusp of making the Chosen 25, and Hargrave Military Academy (Chatham, Virginia) four-star wing Corey Walker.

5. Texas Tech: The Red Raiders landed Chosen 25 star Nimari Burnett, a point guard at Prolific Prep (Napa, California), to go with two four-star wings in Duncanville’s (Texas) Micah Peavy and St. Augustine’s (San Diego) Chibuzo Agbo.

Most important signings

From historic signings to timely signings here’s a look at the most important names that either came through fax machines on Wednesday or are scheduled to come this week and why.

1. Cade Cunningham (Oklahoma State): Cunningham, ranked No. 1 in the Chosen 25, is the highest ranked recruit the Cowboys have ever landed and is the type of player that other elite players want to play with.

2. Nimari Burnett (Texas Tech): Burnett, ranked No. 15 in the Chosen 25, was arguably the best guard on his summer travel team which featured three other Chosen 25 guards. Burnett could be the steal of the class.

3. Sharife Cooper (Auburn): Cooper, ranked No. 2 overall in the Chosen 25, is known amongst his peers as the point guard that makes everyone better. That could mean more elite commitments for the Tigers. Cooper will sign during the Early Period.

4. Scottie Barnes (Florida State): Barnes, ranked No. 10 in the Chosen 25, has earned the reputation as the most competitive player in the country, and as a playmaker he’s respected amongst his peers.

5. Caleb Love (North Carolina): The Tar Heels will lose Cole Anthony to the NBA Draft this spring and having Love as the next man up eases everyone’s tensions about the transition next season.

RELATED: Where do the Chosen 25 players stand?

Who’s left?

Here’s a look at the best recruits who remain uncommitted and are expected to make their decision during the Spring Signing Period (April 14-20, 2020).

1. Jalen Green
Schools being considered: Fresno State, Memphis, Oregon, Auburn, USC
Latest buzz: Green, ranked No. 3 in the Chosen 25, had originally planned to commit on Christmas but will likely make his decision in the spring.

Schools being considered: USC, North Carolina, Stanford, Oregon, Arizona
Latest buzz: Williams, ranked No. 9 in the Chosen 25, has already taken official visits to USC, North Carolina and Stanford and is considering taking other officials to Oregon and Arizona.

4. Cam Thomas
Schools being considered: UCLA, LSU, Auburn
Latest buzz: Thomas, ranked No. 11 in the Chosen 25, told USA Today Sports that he still could potentially decide during the Early Period; LSU and UCLA lead.

5. Josh Christopher
Schools being considered: Howard, Michigan, Missouri, Arizona State, UCLA
Latest buzz: Christopher, ranked No. 16 in the Chosen 25, has a long way to go with most of his visits ahead of him; still, most agree that it will be hard to lure Christopher away from the west coast.
