Loyola Lands 4 Star Forward Christian Negron

Postby Blers » October 18th, 2016, 5:08 pm

Loyola got a commitment from 6'6' tweener Christian Negron. He has a wide build and is a three/four star prospect depending on where you look. Big time upside who got offers from Oregon State, DePaul, U of I, Iowa, UAB, Bradley, and Butler. Between him and Cam Krutwig Porters picked up two HIGH quality post players for years to come. Easily his highest profile recruits.

Very impressive interior tandem! Moser has done an excellent job recruiting and I'm excited to see the oncourt product!

Agreed, gives a rock solid foundation. Both are said to have great intangibles as well, practice hard, want to learn and get it done right. Hopefully they become big time cornerstones for us! Throw in 3 star transfer Marques Townes who will be eligible and Loyola will have an impressive roster next year that will only lose Doyle(significant loss) and potentially Maurice Kirby.

Arrow is definitely up!

Now you have to do what Drake couldn't, and keep them.

Agreed. I think Porters zeroed in on something given his recent recruiting. Focus on the academics and post bball opportunities for players Loyola as a school offers, all while selling a program on the rise. The campus frequently ranks in "most beautiful" lists with all the recent renovations. Get players who want to play now, but know that long term there's life after bball. With that you get players who will be leaving more than just a school, but a rock solid ticket to post grad life. Idk I could be wrong/or that could just be what every body is already selling. All I know is it's working (and Bryan Mullins likely won't be around much longer with the streak he's on for commitment, big ups to him).

Anyway I think by selling the whole experience he'll keep them, outside his first offseason in the valley transfers haven't been a big issue for him. But you're right Wu, you never know and shouldn't take that for granted.

This is great news and continues an impressive run of very good commits to Loyola. My hopes for their addition to end up being a good one for the MVC seem to not be in vain. Hope it continues and Loyola gets its long ago tradition of basketball mojo back, and joins the top teams in the conference and the country.

I reread my posts and I'm underselling how impressed and excited I am about the young and incoming talent at Loyola. WSU has been the benefactor of the highest rated recruiting class year after year. I believe Moser's class will easily be higher ranked than WSU's this year.

This is a very good class for Loyola. The word "easily" may be a little hyperbolic. The Shocks may not sign anymore than the point guard they already have received a commitment from, but he appears to be a Top 5-10 juco player and a Top 1-2 point guard. While he wasn't a 4 * player out of high school, he probably would be now.

If numbers remain what they are now, Loyola will probably have the highest ranked class in the conference. Congratulations.

Purely out of curiosity, are you talking about Samajae Haynes-Jones? Not at all doubting his talent, i just couldn't find much information about him other than that he's an undersized pg who can score. I'd be curious to see more.

LU's recruiting run following Clayton Custer's commitment two years ago has been extremely impressive:

3 star wing Matt Chastain (who from the sounds of it has shown he belongs in this league thus far after a late recruiting boom)
3 star guard Cam Satterwhite
3 star transfer guard Marques Townes
Croatian guard Bruno Skokna Croatia who was recruited/offered by Gonzaga, Dayton, Arizona, Miami, and Davidson (Not being able to read Croatian i'm not sure if they all offered or were just "in the mix" for him)
Two solid JUCO bigs to bridge the gap between now and the Krutwig/Negron pairing

Now they have to put it all together on the court and get some W's, which is the real test. Appreciate all the kind words about LU, hopefully they can continue this trend and help strengthen the Valley's recruiting profile long term!

Yes, he is referring to SHJ. He's a pre-season JUCO AA ranked consistently as a top 15 JC. He scored 16 per with 3 assists as a freshman for Hutchinson. They finished 4th I believe last year. He should be very good. That said, I never saw him play nor any of the Loyola guys, so rankings are the only thing to go off of.
