Running with the D.C. Blue Devils on the AAU circuit and nationally known DeMatha Catholic (Md.) High School, 6-foot-5 Markelle Fultz already held an overwhelming amount of offers from high-major programs before Seton Hall joined the fray on Sunday afternoon.
Xavier, Washington, Miami (Fla.), Maryland, Cincinnati, Georgetown, South Carolina, Memphis, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma State, Arizona, Texas, N.C. State, USC, West Virginia and Penn State had already offered the consensus 4-star Rivals (No. 24), 247Sports.com (No. 37) and ESPN (No. 54) prospect prior to last month.
Heavy hitters like Kansas, Virginia, Florida, State, Louisville and Pittsburgh also extended offers over the last few weeks and before this weekend’s NCAA evaluation period to go along with visits to Penn State and Virginia.
Fultz plays on the same AAU team as recent visitor Eric Cobb, a 2015 forward, does. Despite being a senior, Cobb was supposed to play with the D.C. Blue Devils at the Under Armour Association event in Louisville this weekend, which may explain Seton Hall’s subsequent offer of their best player.
Here’s an impressive look at what Markelle can do on the court:
In other recruiting news, Villanova and Seton Hall’s coaching staffs have offered 2018 point guard Jahvon Quinerly of Hudson Catholic (N.J.) and Sports U. The two Big East schools join St. John’s head coach Chris Mullin, who offered Quinerly two weeks ago and Rider, who were the first school to do so back in January.
Quinerly averaged over 10 ppg for Hudson Catholic as a freshman last season.
Here’s a clip of Jahvon before his freshman season:
Seton Hall also offered Quinerly’s Sports U teammate and Roselle Catholic (N.J.) wing Louis King. A 6-foot-6 freshman, King didn’t play much on a stacked Roselle Catholic squad but holds offers from Syracuse, Manhattan, VCU and St John’s, all of which have come this month.
