St. John’s June recruiting roundup

The Johnnies were busy this month!

NCAA Basketball: Marquette at St. John Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

If you look around the Big East, it’ll be tough to find a team who had a busier month on the recruiting trail than Chris Mullin and the St. John’s Red Storm. Two commits, plus a trio of offers kept everyone in Queens quite busy.


Sedee Keita

After weeks of rumors, the school announced the South Carolina freshman would be joining the Red Storm after sitting out the 2017-18 season. Keita, who originally had Big East interest before committing to South Carolina. He averaged 1.1 points and 2.0 rebounds per game in 28 appearances en route to the Gamecocks’ Final Four run.

Bryan Trimble

FSU’s loss was St. John’s gain, as Trimble flipped his commitment late in the process. The 2017 three-star guard should be a solid backup for Shamorie Ponds and Marcus LoVett.


Qudus Abolaji Wahab

The four-star 2019 big man had a busy week, grabbing offers from Seton Hall and St. John’s. He’s one of 2019’s top players right now, and very tall.

Ashton Hagans

Speaking of top 2019 players, Hagans is a five-star guard, and the second best player in the state of Georgia, which has turned into a high school basketball hotbed of late. The Red Storm are one of about 20 programs already in on Hagans.

Joseph Girard III

Just one letter off from sharing a name with the manager of the New York Yankees, Girard is a three-star 2019 point guard from Glens Falls. Shamorie Ponds may very well be NBA-bound after one of the next two seasons, so it’s never too early to look for a new point guard.


2018 five-star Luther Muhammad visited St. John’s last weekend. His Crystal Ball has taken an interesting path since then...

We’ll have to keep an eye on that situation as it unfolds.
