Saturday's WAC news

Denver has a visitor this weekend, Jordan Scott arriving on an official.

Scott is a 6-foot-6 guard/wing with a 6-foot-9 brother attending Colorado. Per Rivals, offers have been extended from Air Force, Drake and Wyoming.

Jeremy Bauman and Peter Robert Casey wrotes this on Scott in May 2012: "He may not have the bulk, but Jordan Scott is a physical forward at 6’6”, 190 pounds. He gets his hands on a lot of loose balls, can rebound well for his size and can match up with multiple positions defensively. Scott picks up most of his points as a perimeter slasher. With refined range, there’s a lot of upside to his game."


Per Jim Hicks, Texas Arlington has landed a big, 6-foot-9 Lone Star Stater Jordan Williams.

Another Hicks tweet: "Brandon Williams had an offer from Miami (FL) during the April live period. Great catch for Scott Cross and his Mavericks staff."

One description: " Williams is a fluid, bouncy and athletic forward that can develop into a high major prospect in time. Williams can really block shots to go along with his size and athleticism."

From back in 2010: "Brandon (6″8) is an athletic kid, who has a high ceiling. Currently he is very raw, but his work ethic is causing him to progress at a very quick rate. He’s a great rebounder and shot blocker with explosiveness.  This is only his 2nd year of organized basketball." 


Credit John Ralston at the basketball message board for locating this Matt Hickman-penned story on Ajak Magot, a 6-foot-10-er out of Sudan who has an offer from Idaho. The story behind the story is often the most fascinating.
