Duquesne Basketball Recruiting

Cal U Transfer Philip Alston Adds to List, Hears From Local Division One Programs



Just days after entering the transfer portal, former Cal U star Philip Alston is continuing to hear from division one programs from all over, including the three local programs: Pitt, Duquesne, and Robert Morris.

Through his first 15 hours in the portal, he heard from more than 40 division one programs, including Minnesota, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Loyola Chicago, and more. Since then, Alston told Pittsburgh Sports Now that he has now heard from Kent State, Duquesne, Akron, Robert Morris, UMBC, New Mexico, Winthrop, Maryland Eastern Shore, Charleston, and Pitt.

Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.

Gilbert Brown, Pitt’s Director of Player and Alumni Development, reached out to Alston.

“Just an entry text,” Alston said. “Just told me they think I could play there and like my film.”

Alston stands at 6-foot-6, 225 pounds, and plays forward. This season, he averaged 21 points and 10.8 rebounds per game for Cal, and hit 54% of his field-goal attempts.

Just an entry text to a guy that averaged 21 points a game. No wonder PItt can’t recruit anyone. Who sends just an “entry text” to someone that is probably better than everyone on your current roster with the exception of Hugely?

Come on Pitt, get your act together and get out there and hit these recruits hard like you mean it.
