—The Short-Term—

Marcus Bartley
Class of 2014
Point Guard
MacArthur (Ill.)

STORY
SCOUTING REPORT

Blessed with natural point guard skills, Marcus Bartley picked up an early offer from Northwestern. He may never dominate on the offensive end, but would be a worthwhile building block for this team's future.

Josh Cunningham
Class of 2014
Small Forward
Morgan Park (Ill.)

STORY
SCOUTING REPORT

The talented, rangy small forward is about to see his recruitment accelerate. He's mechanically sound, and has the ability to take over with his versatile offensive game. Expect Northwestern to pull the trigger soon.

Trevon Bluiett
Class of 2014
Shooting Guard
Park Tudor (Ind.)

STORY
SCOUTING REPORT

The four-star talent reflects NU's recruiting ambitions. He's immensely talented both from the perimeter on the defensive end. Though landing Bluiett seems like a long shot, this staff has no reason to back down.

—The Future—

Jordan Ash
Class of 2015
Point Guard
St. Joseph (Ill.)

STORY
SCOUTING REPORT

Ash is honest: He has yet to meet with Coach Collins. That's not to minimize his value in the Wildcats' recruiting plans. Ash continues to be one of their top 2015 targets, and would be an excellent point guard signing.

A.J. Turner
Class of 2015
Shooting Guard
New Hampton (N.H.)

STORY
SCOUTING REPORT

In one of the most notable pieces of recruiting news this past week, Turner announced that he was reclassifying to 2015. This is an interesting but sensible move, and will only increase the chance that NU offers the still-raw talent.

—Carmody's Remnants—

Evan Boudreaux
Class of 2015
Power Forward
Lake Forest (Ill.)

STORY
SCOUTING REPORT

Boudreaux is an intense player with an exceptional jump shot. He, too, was among the Carmody era's top targets. With recent performances demonstrating that he's capable of playing power forward, his stock continues to rise.

Reid Travis
Class of 2014
Power Forward
De La Salle (Minn.)

STORY

He's the definition of a "program-turning talent." Travis can score with ease. He's a proven winner at the high school league, and the Howard Pulley AAU player can challenge himself against the best this spring.

Wade Baldwin
Class of 2014
Shooting Guard
Immaculata (N.J.)

STORY

Chris Collins needs to shore up the 2-guard spot for future seasons. When Jershon Cobb departs, he'll need talent on the outside to create scoring opportunities and demonstrate a complete all-around game. Baldwin fits the bill.

—The Celtics—

Aaron Jordan
Class of 2015
Shooting Guard
Plainfield East (Ill.)

STORY
SCOUTING REPORT

I'm pretty obsessed with his game. He's a natural leader, can score from anywhere on the floor and act as facilitator. Hardy and NU are acting quickly on Jordan, as his recruitment will inevitably blow up.

Joseph Toye
Class of 2015
Small Forward
Whitney Young (Ill.)

STORY
SCOUTING REPORT

Toye dominates on the track circuit and the court. He's a solid perimeter shooter with the necessary athleticism to succeed. Several schools are beginning to take notice of his potential—with Northwestern being one of them.

K.J. Santos
Class of 2015
Shooting Guard
Geneva (Ill.)

One of the more intriguing and less-heard names, Santos recently visited campus along with Toye and Jordan. With this talented Celtics roster, Collins and Hardy could attempt to establish another valuable in-state pipeline.

—The Meanstreets—

Vic Law
Class of 2014
Small Forward
St. Rita (Ill.)

STORY

Law understands the value of academics, something he'll continually mention in interviews. That bodes well for Northwestern, as does his strong communication with Chris Collins. He's a feasible target for the Cats.

Tyler Ulis
Class of 2014
Point Guard
Marian Catholic (Ill.)

Everyone is beginning to catch on, as the point guard has earned offers from schools across the country. An excellent facilitator, he'd completely reinvigorate the NU fan base.

Paul White
Class of 2014
Power Forward
Whitney Young (Ill.)

White visited campus during NU's final football spring practice. It was one of the early positives for Collins, as he attempts to create desirable ties to Chicago-area schools. White, with his size and skill, would be quite the land.
