Jays looking for the Royal Flush

now where’s dat Ace?

Well, what ya gonna do Hunter?

Jays are playin with a great hand. Nerves of steel – poker-faced – and goin’ all-In! The Hilltoppers have put together a great class of recruits for 2021, and perhaps, they ain’t done yet!

They started with four-star PG Ryan Nembhard last June. Then got a commit from three-star SG John Christofilis in late September. Now during the early signing period they’ve landed 2 four-stars in both #57 (247) PG TyTy Washington and #64 (247) PF Mason Miller. The haul thus far equates to the #8 Class in the 2021 247 team rankings. Nice.

But….but…It ain’t Over. It ain’t over til the fat lady sings-as they say. Omaha’s own – the top player in the state – the straw that stirs the drink, Mr. Hunter Sallis is still on the boards. Hunter is a bona fide five-star guy (in all the recruiting polls), listed as the #6 recruit in the land by 247.com. His list of schools is as long as my arm (27 offers at last count) including most of the big boys. Erobody wants him and he has the pick of any litter. He’s the Prince Andrew of basketball this year.


Hunter Sallis makes the Royal Flush for the Jays! In a crazy season with Covid-19 running up the score…anything goes! Will Hunter decide to play it safe and stay home? Or will the bluebloods win yet another of their endless battles and steal another top Nebraska/Iowa player away from the region?

We shall see what transpires. My money’s on the Bluejays!

Roll damn Jays!
