THE LIST: Class of 2015 Rivals150
During the summer, one of the class of 2015's biggest risers was four-star shooting guard Rex Pflueger. That momentum doesn't look to be stopping.
After a big sophomore season at San Juan Capistrano (Calif.) J'Serra, the outstanding wing had a monster summer playing for the Compton Magic's 16 and under team.
Everywhere the Magic went, they advanced deep into tournaments and the play of Pflueger -- who has transferred to Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei for his junior season -- was a big factor.
Now grown to 6-foot-6 and 190 pounds according to his father Russell, Pflueger did a bit of everything. He knocked home looks from the three point line, got to the rim for big finishes and became well known for tracking down opponents and blocking their shots in transition.
So far this Fall, Pflueger has seen plenty of interest from schools.
"He's been offered now by Connecticut, California, Notre Dame, San Diego State, USC, Washington State, Boston College, UC-Irvine, LMU, Cal Poly, and Utah State," the elder Pflueger told Rivals.com. "He has a lot of interest from Stanford, Gonzaga, UCLA, Arizona, Colorado, Harvard, Oklahoma, and N.C. State."
Many of those programs including others like Florida, Oregon and Washington have been in the gym to see the No. 50 player in the 2015 Rivals150.
For now, there is no rush to make a decision. However, the Pflueger family is in the process of setting up some unofficial visits to programs that are starting to stand out.
"He has been up to USC and UCLA and has upcoming unofficial trips planned to Stanford and Cal -- the Nov 7 week-end of the Oregon at Stanford & USC at Cal football games -- and also to San Diego State," said Pflueger's father. "We are trying to arrange a trip to Notre Dame and schools back east this fall / winter.
"Those are the schools that are the early leaders, although he really wants to keep his options open until the spring and maybe through the summer to see how things develop with different players and schools."
