I’ve been trying to follow the 2014 recruiting classes’ high school action this season as much as I can based on what’s out there. All three have been putting together impressive seasons, as one would expect considering they are future Division I kids. But they seem to be developing in areas that could really help George Mason in the future. Especially 6’10″ Trey Porter.
Erik Lockett seems to be scoring the most out of the group. He had a few games in December where he scored 24 or more points. According to this site he’s averaging 16.5 PPG and 9.4 RPG. Question is really what position he will play once he arrives in Fairfax. Hopefully he can contribute scoring from multiple spots.
Therence Mayimba continues to be a leader for his Saint James squad. He seems to be averaging 12 points a game among a balanced group but has shown flashes of his scoring ability. In a recent game he scored eight points in a 36-second span to help lead his team to victory. The coaching staff had mentioned he’s really been working on his outside jumper and he even posted a video of himself doing just that.
Trey Porter seems to be developing the most this season. He’s grabbing rebounds a high-rate and playing more above the rim. He’s looking like he will be more than just a rim-protector for Mason. And despite the fact the he still needs to add some muscle to his frame, he’s looking like he could contribute as a freshman.
They still have another scholarship available for this class. They really need a scoring wing or a possibly even a point guard. We most likely won’t know what they are doing with that last spot until the spring. Guard Kobe Eubanks was someone they were looking at for awhile but he’s starting to get more interest from bigger schools and I’m not sure if he’ still in the mix.
