    2017 Recruiting Class Video | Coach Porter's Thoughts On Marcus Shaver

    PORTLAND, Ore. – Head coach Terry Porter and the University of Portland basketball program locked up the best recruiting class in program history with the signing of combo guard Marcus Shaver Jr. (Phoenix, Ariz./Shadow Mountain HS) to a Financial Aid Agreement, the school announced on Wednesday. The signing completes an eight-player 2017 class that was previously ranked No. 12 nationally by Hoop Scoop and is expected to go up with the announcement of Shaver, one of the top unsigned guards on the West Coast.

    Looks like they got their own African/japanese player in Tahirou Diabate. Interesting.

    HoopScoop updated their ranking for Portland to #10. I don't claim that the list is perfect or accurate, but to get attention like this indicates that we are improving the quality of recruits... lets hope it starts showing up in results. The sheer number of new faces coming in has a lot to do with the ranking... but even looking at the top 4 or 5 coming in, we still rate well on their list. The UP site actually has a good explanation of how the ranking was put together: http://www.portlandpilots.com/news/2...oop-scoop.aspx .
    Go Pilots!
