Just a few days ago, Loyola Marymount's 2012 recruiting class was non-existent. After a flurry of commitments over the past few days, Max Goode and his staff have three recruits on board.
Things got started Thursday when 6-foot-11 big man Tobe Okafor from Durham (N.C.) Mt. Zion popped for LMU. While still quite raw, he's a big man who can block shots, has great size and takes up plenty of space.
Then, on Saturday, things really jumped off when Los Angeles natives Taj Adams and Nick Stover pulled the trigger.
Adams, emerged as one of the more intriguing guys of the summer. At 6-foot-7, he's very slender but the Los Angeles (Calif.) Fairfax combo-forward is quite skilled and has a versatile inside-outside game, great motor and is a three-star prospect.
In Stover, LMU has found a solid kid who will do a little bit of everything.
A 6-foot-5 small forward out of Los Angeles (Calif.) Windward, Stover has big frame and is more athletic than given credit for. That aside, he's always in motion, has a pretty complete game and is one of the most intelligent perimeter players on the West Coast.
