The 2022 class has seen recruiting take off at a different pace due to the fact that summer ball will likely not be played. Someone who has been effected positively by the amped recruiting efforts is California native, Ramel Lloyd Jr.
The newly-minted member of national powerhouse Dream Christian Academy, which is producing high-major talent over it’s short time of being founded, they’ve produced several high-major prospects with the latest being Lloyd Jr.
The elite-wing prospect was starring at Taft High School before announcing his move to DCC. He holds offers from Kansas, Arkansas, Georgetown, TCU, St. John’s, San Diego State, Arizona State, USC, UMass, Dayton, DePaul, UNLV, Fresno State, and Manhattan.
In addition, he told Stockrisers.com that the newest programs to show interest and reach out to his camp are Louisville, Florida State, Illinois, and Oregon. The Louisville Cardinals had completed a virtual visit with Lloyd Jr. and he said ‘The meeting went well’ and he pointed out the tradition and the ‘cool’ coaching staff.
Another head coach he has gotten to speak with is Arkansas’ Eric Musselman. The Hogs’ head man has used the SEC platform to his advantage and hasn’t shied away from recruiting elite talent and that is the main reason he offered Lloyd Jr.
West Coast prospects are at the center of the basketball world, media outlets everywhere, big crowds, and honestly just the fact it’s the West Coast. We’ve already seen Jalen Green and Daishen Nix, California prospects, opt to take the G-League route. I asked Lloyd Jr. what he thinks about this new path for prospects.
“I think it’s a great alternative for guys who don’t want to play in college. I also think it’s great for the game but honestly college or the G-League are both great options,” he said.
