Today in the Morning Rumble, Ty-Shon Alexander committed to Creighton, Javion Ogunyemi is eligible and Seton Hall hosts five talented recruits.
Ty-Shon Alexander, a 2017 guard who plays at Oak Hill Academy, committed to Creighton on Sunday over Virginia Tech, Clemson, Wake Forest and others. The four-star prospect loves to shoot the three ball so he will fit in perfectly in the Blue Jays' heavy, up-tempo offensive attack.
Big news for Siena as forward Javion Ogunyemi will not have to sit out this upcoming season despite transferring back into the program this fall. Ogunyemi decided to return to Siena (he transferred to Boston University last spring) to deal with a family matter and now he is expected to have a major role on a talent MAAC squad.
In 2014-15, Ogunyemi averaged 9.3 points and 4.8 rebounds per game while shooting an efficient 55 percent from the field.

Speaking of Jaylen Brown, how about the show he put on before Cal's scrimmage? Boy this freshman is going to be special this year.
