Class of 2024 PG Mikey Lewis (CO) Offered

Mikey Lewis is nice, but we are certainly looking at Jalil Bethea for that role and he is almost definitely a one-and-done and then the next year we are looking at Tyler Jackson. We may become PGU very quickly. I love that Red and Co. are identifying dawgs early and going after them instead of backing off at the first sign of a fight with the douchebag bluebloods. Screw them. SU has the Dome, history good facilities and great opportunity.

Yup I prefer Bethea but if that doesn’t work out, Lewis is one hell of a back up if we ended up with him.

It doesn’t matter who SU is looking at. Who wants SU is the question?
 
Well, maybe this is semantics, but I feel like Mikey is a PG, whereas Jalil is more of a combo guard/wing...but yes, Jalil is definitely priority #1 for the SU staff, as far as I can tell.
 
I don't think we will see Mikey wear our Orange
Full court press on Bethea and if that doesn’t work out in our favor we grab a stud PG from the portal. I would be happy with that plan.
 
FWIW, I just heard back from a recruiting analyst, and he said that Lewis hasn't heard from SU in a while...

Bethea was the bonus recruit of sorts- the kind of kid in 24 if you could land, like we almost did, you see it to the end because of the talent level. Would make sense they don't overreact to this with Choppa in the fold and some things to sort out once the season starts around what to expect roster wise in 24. Portal makes the most sense along with how aggressive the staff has been with a longer list in the '25 class.

Agreed. When it comes to needing a lead guard for immediate impact, unless it's an elite freshman recruit en route to the NBA I'd rather hand the keys to a transfer. Even if Judah and JJ get drafted, I wonder if Red expects Copeland and Westry to slide into the starting lineup, or if he'll be banking on the portal for a starter.
 
I wish Cuse didn’t stop recruiting this kid. He’s a certified bucket getter and would fill up the stat sheet. If we decide to get back in the race, he’ll visit. But as of right now and as said above we haven’t been recruiting him for a bit now. From my understanding is the coaches would rather take a guard from the Portal than recruit another high school kid. Autry is a BIG believer in the portal as you can tell from this past offseason. So fully expect that to be used a lot more with Autry.

From my understanding he wants his A-list recruits which we got in Freeman and Moore. And if a b-list recruit Autry has to really love him or he’d rather go the portal route. Autry wants less projects and reaches. And more people that can come and contribute right away, even if you are a back up, coming off the bench. He wants ready players and less developments
