Basketball

The Sun Devils already secured four-star Marcus Bagley for their recruiting class. The other two main prospects Bobby Hurley and company have tried their hardest to get is five-star shooting guard Joshua Christopher and four-star center Cliff Omoruyi.

Omoruyi, the New Jersey product, appears more likely to end up in the maroon and gold. 247Sport’s 41st overall prospect currently has 100% in the website’s Crystal Ball based on predictions of 10 experts.

Christopher’s predictions have him headed to Michigan and he has a lot of interest from UCLA as well.
