The Creighton Bluejays went out west and got a verbal commit from a guard that can (unsurprisingly) shoot the ball pretty well.
John Christofilis (Seattle, Wash./O’Dea) gave his pledge to Greg McDermott and his staff, becoming the second 2021 commit for the Bluejays. He joins four-star guard Ryan Nembhard (Canada/Montverde Academy).
Here’s the rest of the action on the Big East recruiting trail from this past week.

- If you notice an error, have news of a new offer, please feel free to tip me off—or Big East Coast Bias—on Twitter: @becb_sbn and @erapay5. I’ll update accordingly.
- Shoutout to Anonymous Eagle, Casual Hoya, Banners on the Parkway, Rumble in the Garden, The UConn Blog, and VU Hoops. We unfortunately don’t have articles on all recruits, but we got some help in filling some blanks from our fellow Big East SB Nation sites. Some recruits have clickable names, which will take you to a relevant article regarding that player.
- I recommend viewing the spreadsheet externally, since you’ll be able to use things like filters (Google Sheets has that option on the top-left, next to the print button.) and Ctrl+F (Apple+F if you’re on Mac) to help make searching for recruits easier. You’ll also have a bigger screen/window to look at the spreadsheet: Big East Offer Tracker, last updated Sept. 28, 2020. Alternatively, you may view below.
