    Default 2021 Recruits

    Is this kid, Matthew Mors, the next big prospect from SD? Any of our Yankton friends or basketball junkies able to project if he is an option for a team at our level, or is he more of a Power 5 recruit? The 8th grader scored 41 last night against Sioux Falls Washington and is averaging about 30 points/game through the first three games of the season.

    He's good, his brother might be better. (exact quote from someone who coached both of them in grade school).

    I talked to a friend of mine who knows his dad pretty well and said he's a power 5 guy.

    He played last year as a 7th grader. Also a pretty good baseball player according to the paper.

    Just an FYI, some discussion came about him last year as well...http://sdsufans.com/board/showthread...ecruits/page41

    Here is a quick merge of the stuff I posted in that thread:

    Just for everybody's information...Matthew's father is Ryan Mors, the current AD at Yankton. Ryan played on all those great Huron football and basketball teams that Huron had in the early 90's (Chad Peters, Brad Peterson, the Struck brothers all guys that played at SDSU). Ryan is about 6'4/6'5 range and played football at Northern. Just a quick fun fact, Mors was my 5th grade teacher and his wife Aimee was my PE teacher, we had a class party when Matthew was born.

    Every indication at this time is that he will be a P5 recruit. Only question is where does his passion lie? He is "freak" athlete. Has the body of a college kid and he is 13 or 14 yo. Things can certainly change with time. He put up 41 against a darn good SF Washington team and he defended well too.

    My opinion is start on him early. Maybe he will be a P5 athlete, but sometimes that doesn't matter. Maybe he will want to play and represent his own state versus another place. Other times the first school to try and recruit a player can leave a pretty big impact on their decision. We should never not try to recruit a SD athlete even if we think they could go P5.

    It seems like a lot of pressure for an 8th grader. Yankton's sports guy (USD beat writer) has been retweeting stuff with Duke, Kentucky, etc. in it. I don't think he should be doing that, but he always comes off more like a fan than a writer I guess. Not saying the kid can't handle it, but I just hope he does alright.

    Very hard to project junior high to college. Ten or fifteen years ago Minnesota recruited a kid who was rated the top ninth grader in the nation, and he ended up as an average at best college player.

    Off topic...but it's amazing to me we didn't win more championships in those years. Those boys basketball teams were amazingly talented. As were those football teams. Fun fact: Huron beat Watertown for both the basketball and football championships that year. Jason Sutherland and Brian Norbert were on those those teams.

    Apologies...but those were fun times to be a Huron Tiger...now...not so much.

    Watertown Arrow here.
    1993: Huron 76, Watertown 65.

    Point noted about Huron talent back then. Okay, back to the topic.

    (Geez, some Huron guys just won't let it go.)
