EJ Liddell, a four-star forward prospect out of the 2019 recruiting class, has narrowed his potential landing spots to just three programs. The talented high school player made his announcement on Twitter.
The three schools making the cut are the Missouri Tigers, Illinois Fighting Illini and Ohio State Buckeyes. For whatever it is worth, those were long considered the three programs most likely to land the forward for a relatively lengthy period of time.
Playing for the Bradley Beal Elite (yes, the Washington Wizards player) in the Nike EYBL, over the course of a year, EJ Liddell averaged 14.0 points and 6.7 rebounds per contest while shooting roughly 51 percent from the floor.
At 6-foot-7, it appears grassroots scouts feel as though he projects a bit more as a smaller four than a normal-ish sized three. Obviously, that could change, especially considering the fact that Liddell actually has pretty solid handles for a player his size.
Nevertheless, that’s honestly all conjecture at this point. The nation will know exactly what type of talent he sincerely is when he hits campus for one of those three schools in a year from now.
