This Appeal Democrat article on various college destinations for some Yuba College players escaped our attention a month and a half ago. Do keep in mind in mind that recruiting targets on both sides of the equation define FLUIDITY.
Spencer Butterfield, guard, 6-3: Montana, TCU, Utah StateSince then, Butterfield has decided to play a second season at Yuba. He's a fun guy to watch, a D-1 level wide receiver in high school who prefers playing basketball. Butterfield hits the floor more than anyone else in college basketball and does the little things that produce wins. PTW easily sees him as a D-1 complementary talent. Here's a high school highlight video on the young man.
– What remains to be seen with Butterfield is how coaches will react to his faith coming first. Butterfield will be going on a Mormon mission in the next couple years, Cornelius said, and it could affect who wants to offer him a scholarship. Still, the coach is confident there are teams out there that will wait to have his game-breaking ability readily available.
Shola Diop, center, 6-10: Arkansas Little Rock and Fresno State
– For Diop, a sophomore who came to Yuba via Sydney, Cornelius’ goal is to get him to a program that will red shirt him for a season. This will allow Diop to further develop the skills he needs to thrive. Both these programs have seen the upside in having him sit for a year, Cornelius said.
PTW hasn't seen Diop play. This article went up prior to the Fresno State coaching change so it's anyone's guess as to continuing Bulldog interest. Here's a YouTube video on him.
