Getting way ahead in recruiitng

You have to love that Coach Mark Fox and Nevada often shoot big in the recruiting targets the Wolf Pack program selects. Of course it helps to have the record Nevada has put of the last five or so years so as to gain the attention of kids.

Price High's (southern California) Allen Crabbe, a 2010 shooting guard, is getting major attention from the PAC-10 but the folks in Reno are still in pursuit. He's 6-5 and 180 and appears ready to break into the national recruiting ranks. Here's an ESPN evaluation:


September, 2008: Crabbe continued to demonstrate why he is going to be one of the top recruits in the Class of 2010. His frame is filling out nicely and he has very good length as well. His jump shot wasn't falling, but he is already considered one of the elite shooters in the West. In the past when his shot wasn't falling, his impact would come to a standstill. However, he has now developed a much improved mid-range game and he's hitting the glass with more urgency as well. He still needs to get better with the ball when breaking down defenders, but overall he has definitely taken his game to the next level since the spring evaluation period.
