IN HIS OWN WORDS 

Virginia: “I like the culture they established there. They play winning basketball and preach defense. I also like how they have developed their guys.”

Xavier: “I like the coaches and have gotten to know them over time. I really like their approach to the game. They have also been playing great basketball and I have enjoyed watching them play this year.”

DePaul: “I like that they allow their freshmen to come in and have an impact right away. I also like the way they let their guys play.”

St. John’s: “They are the hometown school and I grew up following them since I’m from Queens. It would be nice to play at Madison Square Garden, somewhere I have dreamed of playing since I was young.”

RIVALS' REACTION 

Bliss doesn’t have any high-major offers at this point, but they are likely to come over the coming months. He scores at a high rate and can play on and off the ball, traits that are lacking across the board in the 2024 class. Bliss hasn't planned any visits yet, but he wants to schedule some within the next month.
