Current Recruiting

Track who UMass is recruiting, anyone who we're in the mix for. Follow a player from the first reports of interest all the way through a signed Letter Of Intent.

Recruiting a prospective student-athlete involves many rules from the NCAA. If you ever have the opportunity to interact with a recruit, know what you can and cannot do before you act.

Compliance resources

“We appreciate the support of our alumni and fans. We ask, however, that you also help maintain the University of Massachusetts' tradition of athletic integrity by following NCAA regulations. Your assistance in this matter will ensure that the eligibility of both prospective student-athletes and currently enrolled student-athletes is protected.” - UMass Athletics

The List


There are many sources of recruiting information about basketball players. Some of the most common sources of recruiting rumors and player evaluations are Scout, Rivals, and ESPN. However, there are many more sources of recruiting information, from regional websites such as the New England Recruiting Report to Twitter. The reliability of each source varies and not all websites or sources are kept up to date.

All recruiting targets listed below have been derived from the various “KAEO” threads on the Message Board. “KAEO” is an acronym for “Keeping an Eye On”. This acronym has traditionally been used to identify message board threads that keep track of players that have been identified to have received an offer from UMass or have “received interest” from UMass. Many message board posters keep track of recruiting through various sources and provide updates to the fanbase through the KAEO threads.

For more background on the recruit and the history of his recruitment, click on the KAEO link for each player. This will take you to the Message Board thread for that player. If you are aware of a change in status for a specific recruit (verbal commitment, de-commitment, or signed NLI), please indicate the change in the KAEO thread. If you're an Editor on this Wiki, please update the status in the table below.
