Young WPIAL Hoopers Continue to Receive Attention from College Coaches



Although some of the top players in the WPIAL left for other schools this offseason, there is still plenty of college-level talent playing hoops in Western PA.

Throughout the fall, college basketball coaches have been in and out of Western PA, checking out these prospects. This week specifically, the local programs have been in as well.

On Wednesday, there were several coaches around at the local high schools. Check out who was being watched below.


Auburn was in at Imani on Monday, watching Tristen Brown, Nate Brazil, and RJ Sledge.

Bethune Cookman and Duquesne have been in as well over the past two weeks.


Robert Morris HC Andy Toole was at USC earlier this week to watch Peja Strobl (2026 guard) and Tyler Robbins (2025 forward). On Wednesday, Duquesne associate head coach Dru Joyce stopped in to check out Strobl and Robbins, per source.


Montour’s Ama Tening Sow has garnered attention from all levels of Division One hoops as of late, including visits from Duquesne and Pitt lately. On Wednesday, Western PA native and Kentucky head coach John Calipari was in attendance at Montour’s practice to watch Sow play, Sow told Pittsburgh Sports Now.


Meleek Thomas, the top ranked player in the WPIAL (and the nation’s No. 1 point guard), had a busy week catching up with the top coaches in the college game. On Monday, Auburn was in for him. On Tuesday, Kansas was in. On Wednesday, Calipari stopped by for Kentucky.

Keep an eye on PSN throughout the fall and winter to see where the most talented players around the area will end up playing college ball.
