SHARE Henricksen: Top recruits still available in Class of 2015

With just a little more than six weeks until the National Signing Period, the majority of the top prospects in the Chicago area have committed to Division I schools. Here is a look at where those players have committed and where several of the uncommitted stand heading into the stretch run of their respective recruitments.

Best available

Simeon’s Isaiah Moss, the emerging 6-5 wing who blossomed this summer, is the best uncommitted prospect remaining in the Chicago area. DePaul has been entrenched in his recruitment, with an official visit set for this coming weekend. He’s visited Creighton unofficially and Rhode Island officially, with Cincinnati and La Salle also very involved.

Cashaw completes three visits

Without any future visits set at this point, Stevenson’s Connor Cashaw, the 6-3 guard who averaged nearly 18 points as a junior for a team that finished third in the state, has three schools front and center at this point: Rice, Lehigh and Harvard. Cashaw has officially visited all three and is expected to make a decision in the near future.

Boudreaux visits Yale

When it comes to big men who are still available, Lake Forest’s Evan Boudreaux tops the list. The 6-7 senior wrapped up a visit to Yale this past weekend and has a future visit at Iowa set, according to his NLP club coach, Dickey Simpkins. Dartmouth is also heavily involved with the productive big man, who continues to keep his options open.

St. Rita trio “overlooked”

St. Rita coach Gary DeCesare believes there are plenty of college coaches “missing the boat” when it comes to what he calls his “overlooked” trio of point guard Armani Chaney, 6-3 guard Kain Harris and 6-8 big man Myles Carter.

Chaney completed an official visit to Tennessee State this past weekend, while Carter took an unofficial visit to UIC. While Harris has generated a wide range of interest, DeCesare believes the strong, athletic guard who transferred in from Morgan Park will only enhance his recruiting stock throughout his senior year.

Curie’s Stamps gaining interest

As a 6-4 perimeter threat who can stretch the floor with his shooting, there are plenty keeping an eye on Curie’s Joshua Stamps as he plays out his senior year. Curie assistant Jerrell Oliver says Tulsa, California, Memphis, DePaul, Rhode Island, USC, Florida Gulf Coast and a few others are keeping tabs on Stamps.

De La Salle’s Harris picks up offer

The long, rangy and active Karl Harris, who has visited St. Francis in Pennsylvania, picked up a recent offer from SIU-Edwardsville and has interest from LaSalle.
