Duquesne Basketball Recruiting
Former OLSH Standout Jake DiMichele Visits Duquesne for Potential Walk-On Spot
One of the best players in recent WPIAL history may be making a return to Pittsburgh hoops.
Jake DiMichele, a former star guard for Our Lady of Sacred Heart (OLSH), recently took a visit to Duquesne in hopes of earning a walk-on opportunity with the program. DiMichele finished his high-school career as No. 2 on the WPIAL’s all-time leading scorers list. He then spent this past year playing a prep year with First Love Scotland Campus.

DiMichele is a 6-foot-4 guard who earned First Team All-EPL (Elite Prep League) this season after averaging 24 points per game on 53% shooting. He hit 37% of his three-point attempts on the year, per EPL.

Duquesne recently added walk-on guard Ethan Anish for next season’s squad. Anish is a 6-foot-1 combo guard out of Allderdice who led his Dragons’ squad to a City League title this season.
Duquesne has brought in Andrei Savrasov, Hassan Drame, and Fousseyni Drame from the transfer portal so far this offseason. Former Dukes Kevin Easley (Coastal Carolina), Devin Carney (Denver), Maceo Austin (Slippery Rock), Quincy McGriff (UTSA), and Jaylen Cole-Williams (Uncommitted) all entered the portal this offseason from the program.
