It was looking like another quiet week of recruiting, until four-star guard Brandon Weston (Brooklyn, N.Y./Hillcrest Prep) announced his commitment to Seton Hall on Sunday afternoon.
He’s the latest addition to a solid 2021 class for Seton Hall, which also includes four-star guard Ryan Conway (Baltimore, Md./Dulaney) and three-star forward Tyler Powell (Los Angeles, Calif./Ribet Academy).
Creighton also added a walk-on in Andrew Merfeld (Omaha, Neb./Skutt Catholic).
Here is all the action from this past week:
- 2020 guard Andrew Merfeld (Omaha, Neb./Skutt Catholic) joins Creighton as a walk-on.
- Four-star, 2021 guard Brandon Weston (Brooklyn, N.Y./Hillcrest Prep) committed to Seton Hall.

- Five-star, 2021 forward Brandon Huntley-Hatfield (Clarksville, Tenn./IMG Academy) cut Georgetown from his list, as he narrowed his list down from 11 to eight schools.

- 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 Aug. 31, 2020. Alternatively, you may view below.
