While we still don’t have a decision from Bronny James, some of the top remaining undecided Seniors in the nation are beginning to make their college commitments. Over the last few days, three schools have picked up four-star recruits for their basketball programs.
Hillcrest (Calif.) C Dennis Evans: Louisville
On Sunday, Hillcrest center Dennis Evans committed to Louisville.
The Cardinals are getting an elite shot-blocker and freakish physical specimen with a 77″ wingspan. During his varsity career, Evans averaged 5.4 blocks per game to go with 9.8 rebounds and 10.3 points per game.
