one other guy Bradley offered three years ago - Charlie Moore..
http://bradleyfans.com/vb/showthread...210#post263210

but likely we are not on his radar - - although suddenly Moore has put his recruiting on hold due to some family issue
http://www.prephoopsillinois.com/new...rer_id=1201274

He was one of those dozen or so Chicago kids who visited Bradley for the Red-White a couple years ago that Dave Reynolds called "the defining moment" in Bradley basketball and predicted a surge of talent would flow out of Chicago to BU - but it never happened...
Instead of a "pipeline" it turned out to be a "pipe dream"...as the only talent that actually got here didn't make much of a dent and couldn't score & couldn't get us out of Thursday games.

Charlie Moore was one of Illinois' top priorities but now after Illinois got a verbal from point guard Te'Jon Lucas,
Charlie Moore has reportedly dropped Illinois from his list.
I am sure Illinois people expected this and Moore might end up like a lot of the Chicago kids (Lovett, Pipkins, etc...) with regard to academics & eligibility...

Would add Brandon Johnson back on the list of 2016's, as I think Bradley is still pursuing.

Brandon Johnson is a bit of a project, and unless one or more of our big guys leaves, I do not see our coaches making another big guy a priority for 2016.

Former Centralia, IL 6-5 wing/SF Carlos Johnson says he will announce his decision this Friday.
His family moved to California (where he played in high school and AAU) but he is finishing his final year of high school at Findlay Prep in Nevada.
He has offers from UTEP, Nevada, San Diego State and UNLV and those are the most likely, but recent articles still mention his offer from Bradley.
I would put the chances for Bradley at under 10%.

Bradley coached were at Belleville East HS today viewing workouts and practice...


It is likely the recruiting target was Javon Pickett
https://basketballrecruiting.rivals....sp?CID=1789019
**

(Drake, ISU, Loyola, Missouri State, and SLU have all offered - he is 6-4 or so and has played SF but might a Rayvonte Rice-like player that can play wing and forward.)

The other Belleville school, Althoff, has 3 DI caliber kids getting recruited, so perhaps we could be watching one or more of them..

Bradley assistant coach Drew Adams was in Tindley, Indiana to watch a 2018 guard prospect today, Eric Hunter.

Drew Adams also visited other Indiana HS gyms today-

The player at Hamilton Southeastern HS in Fishers, IN that I suspect our guys were watching and is a target:
Class of 2017 forward Zach Gunn
http://www.indystar.com/story/sports...ball/29465877/
http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaa/basketb...ollege_choices

Eric Hunter is a 6-2 PG from Indianapolis in Class of 2018 - has only one offer so far (IUPUI), but is only a sophomore
http://www.indystar.com/story/recrui...rest/26961067/

The target at Lawrence North HS would include
Kevin Easley who we have discussed before and already has a Bradley offer - LINK
Class of 2016, 6-3 SG Djimon Henson - LINK
Class of 2017, 6-7 PF Ra Kpedi - LINK
Class of 2019 SG Dexter Shouse - son of ex-NBA'er
Brian Wardle has successfully recruited at Lawrence North before - Daeshon Francis


I love that our guys are way ahead of where we've been the past few years - we are already heavily contacting & recruiting already for 2017 & 2018

I found this old article on Ferguson. He is listed as a 6'4" shooting guard. I did see that he can also play some PG.

From reading quite a few articles about him, he played a lot of point guard last year and over the summer. However, it seems college recruiters see him more as a 2-guard.
