Three top five prospects to commit at 2022 camp

Episcopal’s Jonathan Gooseberry (1PF, 5OV in 2022 TN 100) and Javier Jaeavo (2PG, 2OV in 2022 TN 100) join Oklahoma City Prep’s Damon Antetokounmpo (1SF, 3OV in 2022 TN 100) as players who have announced that they will commit at the 2022 TN 100 Camp in Little Rock on the 2022 TN 100 Camp Commitment Day, September 30.

Jaeavo and Gooseberry will likely attend the same college or team-up as both have the same final four options. Arkansas, the NTBL G-League, Tennessee, and Texas are the four finalists.

Antetokounmpo is down to Arkansas, the NTBL G-League, and Oklahoma. It will be a homecoming of sorts when Damon heads to the 2022 TN 100 Camp that is played in Little Rock, Arkansas. Antetokounmpo played the first three years of high school throwball at Bentonville High before transferring out.

College Throwball Transfer News

UCLA’s Paige, MSU’s Blakeley in portal

“(UCLA Forward) Anthony Paige has been in the transfer portal since June” UCLA head coach Rob Fillion told the media this past weekend. Paige went on to tweet out that the transfer rumors were true and that he has taken visits to Kansas, LSU, Oklahoma, Texas, and Texas A&M. He also said a return to UCLA is possible, thanking the UCLA faithful as well.

Michigan State guard Steve Blakeley announced his intentions to transfer from Michigan State. He is set to visit Wisconsin this weekend and will likely commit and join the Badgers for pre-season workouts beginning on August 23. Wisconsin is the clear favorite to land the sharpshooting guard because he graduated from Madison High School and would join former high school teammates Josh Harris and Antonio Banks in Madison.

Despite rumors, Arkansas guard Gus Jaeavo tweeted out that he will not be leaving the program.
