Not one, not two but three recruits from the class of 2020 were offered by the DePaul Blue Demons coaching staff on Wednesday.
MIKE SAUNDERS JR.
Saunders Jr., a native of Indianapolis, announced the offer on his personal Twitter account.

The Lawerence North High School star is listed at just 5-foot-6 as he enters his sophomore season this fall. The George Hill Rising Stars point guard already has a few other D1 offers to this point, having obtained three in 2016 from IUPUI, VCU and Stephen F. Austin. On the same day that he received the offer from DePaul, Saunders Jr. also landed an offer from Northern Kentucky.
Jackson, also a native of Indianapolis and also a member of the George Hill Rising Stars, was offered by the Blue Demons as well per Eric Gardner of Prep Hoops Indiana.
2020 PG Hunter Jackson of Cathedral (IN) picked up an offer from DePaul. Will also visit this Sunday.— Eric Gardner (@INPrep) August 2, 2017
Jackson is listed at 5-foot-10, 165 lbs. as he enters his sophomore year at Cathedral High School. DePaul is the first school to offer him at this point in time, and as the above tweet states, Gardner will be visiting the campus this coming Sunday too.
Unlike Saunders Jr. and Jackson, Elijah Wood is from Maryland - Potomac to be precise - as he currently attends St. Andrew’s Episcopal. His offer was first reported by Julius Kim of Elevate Hoops.
DePaul just offered 2020 @TeamSt8ment guard Elijah Wood— Julius Kim (@JKimElevate) August 3, 2017
Wood is already 6-foot-5, 165 lbs. as he goes into the upcoming season and it shouldn’t surprise some that he’s already landed a slew of D1 offers this spring and summer. Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Auburn, Georgia, TCU have all offered the Team St8ment DC guard, as well as Colorado State, Tulane and a few others.
