Goldmine: FB & BB Recruiting Nuggets from Around the Interweb

AM Update #2:  Check out the FanShots for new recruiting news.  Scout is reporting that Mike Price has offered Reggie Gilbert, a DE out of Arizona.

AM UPDATE:  I inserted some information on Jordan Daniels, a PG prospect out of Ediwanda, California. is now reporting that Tim Floyd has offered the prospect a scholarship.

Not enough for a full Dig; but I wanted to toss out some new recruiting nuggets that have come my way. 



  • Jacques Streeter, a point guard transfer prospect from Cal-State Fullerton may be on his way to El Paso.  Fox Sports reporter Jeff Goodman tweeted that it's a done deal.

Source told Cal State Fullerton transfer Jacques Streeter, a 6-0 soph. who averaged 11.8 ppg and 4.7 apg, is headed to UTEP.

Streeter sounds like he might be a good one.  He was a first team All-Big West Freshman team selection in 2008.  Last year, however, his shooting percentage went down from over 43% to just over 37%.  Miner fans will love this, though.  Last season against New Mexico State, Streeter had 20 points and 10 assists to lead Fullerton to an 84-72 victory over the NCAA Tournament bound Aggies.  Also, against UCLA, he chipped in 11 points in a whopping 45 minutes in the Titan's near upset (68-65 loss).

He's played against elite competition and held his own. If Tim Floyd does end up bringing him in, as a potential replacement to Julyan Stone in 2011, then he will be the most proven guard on the roster.

Ultra-quick but very small PG has real ability to beat defenders off the dribble as well as score from the perimeter.  Most scouts love his feel and ability to run a team.  Size and strength are the big questions that need to be answered this summer if he is to be a significant contributor above the mid-major level.   Very good student is hearing from UTEP, Gonzaga, San Diego, Portland, USC, UNLV and Oregon State.

The same site also lists Daniels as 5'8, not 5'10, as listed by Scout.  He may be undersized, but perhaps if these scouting reports are true, his quickness will offset that.





  • ($)  is reporting that Frisco (Liberty) High wide receiver Cameron Brown is receiving heavy interest from UTEP.   Brown told Scout,  "Tulsa, Kansas, Kansas State, UTEP and SMU are all recruiting me right now. I've been hearing a lot from those schools."

According to Scout, Brown is 6'2, 195, and runs a 4.59 forty yard dash.  According to Rivals, Brown has already been offered by Minnesota.

At 6'2, with a 38' vertical, you have to love the athletic potential Brown could bring to any team at the wide receiver spot.



Thoughts on Streeter or Brown?
