There weren’t any commits this past week, but a couple of Big East teams and fanbases were glad to hear they were in the final list for a few key recruits.

After a hot stretch of recruiting in July and August, where there were Big East commits each week, the momentum has slowed down a bit.

There weren’t any new Big East commits, but there are a couple of teams and fanbases that were excited to hear that their school made a few key commits’ final lists.

Here is all the action from this past week:

New offers:

  • 2021 guard Camryn Carter (Sorrento, La./East Ascension) received an offer from Georgetown.
  • Four-star, 2021 forward David Jones (Dominican Republic/Teays Valley Christian School) received an offer from DePaul.
  • 2023 guard Shawn Simmons (Philadelphia, Pa./Friends Central) received an offer from Georgetown.
  • Three-star, 2022 forward Jai Smith (Syracuse, N.Y./St. Thomas More) received an offer from Xavier.
  • Four-star, 2022 forward Cam Whitmore (Odenton, Md./Archbishop Spaulding) received an offer from Georgetown.

Final cuts:

  • Four-star, 2021 guard Tamar Bates (Kansas City, Kan./IMG Academy) trimmed his list to seven, Creighton made it.
  • Four-star, 2021 guard D’Marco Dunn (Tucson, Ariz./Westover) trimmed his list to seven schools, cut Marquette and Xavier.
  • Three-star, 2021 forward Kobe Johnson (Sun Prairie, Wisc./Nicolet) left off DePaul from his final five list.
  • Five-star, 2021 guard Hunter Sallis (Omaha, Neb./Millard North) included Creighton in his final 12 list, but cut UConn and Marquette.
  • Four-star, 2021 guard Brandon Weston (Brooklyn, N.Y./Morgan Park) included Seton Hall in his final six list, but cut St. John’s.

Non-Big East commitments:

  • Four-star, 2021 guard Frankie Collins (Las Vegas, Nev./Compass Prep) committed to Michigan, had Georgetown in his final eight list.
  • Three-star, 2021 forward James Graham III (Milwaukee, Wisc./Nicolet) committed to Maryland. Also had Georgetown and Marquette in his final nine list.

Other notes:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 Aug. 24, 2020. Alternatively, you may view below.
