2022 shooting guard Noah Batchelor of Glenelg Country School (MD) is only a sophomore but has already become a high major target.
The 6-6 wing has early offers from Florida, Virginia Tech, Clemson and George Washington.
He has plenty more interested, and despite not being able to talk to programs yet, Batchelor has already made an impression.
“It’s amazing,” he said of all the early attention from college coaches. “Just to hear that colleges are interested and have offered me is just an honor.”
Clemson was the first high major school to reach out and offer, and he was ecstatic when he learned about the scholarship.
“I was just happy,” he said. “I was jumping up and down.”
He is currently doing his research on the program and trying to learn more about the school. He is also doing his homework on Virginia Tech, who reached out to offer shortly after Clemson.
“Honestly, I was just so happy when I got it,” he said. “And they’re in the ACC. So it was a very big accomplishment.”
Most of the coaches that have reached out to his camp have identified his shooting and how, “I’m engaged in the game,” as things that have stood out so far. But he’s more than an offensive gem. He can be an elite talent on the defensive end as well.
“I would say my communication too,” he explained. “I love talking on defense and hyping up my teammates.”
He has a long recruitment ahead of him. Schools are still doing their homework and will likely be out to see him play. One school that he’s hoping to hear from is the Duke Blue Devils.
“My dream school is Duke. I’ve always liked them,” he said. “I like the coach there, and the way they run their program. It’s also a great school.”
