The St. John’s basketball program offered Top-110 small forward in the Class of 2022, Tyrell Ward.

As head coach Mike Anderson and his St. John’s coaching staff try and tie up loose ends with its recently improved Class of 2021 recruiting class, the Red Storm continue to scan its boards in the Class of 2022.

The Johnnies extended an offer to Tyrell Ward, a Top-110 small forward in the Class of 2022.

Ward, a Baltimore, Maryland native and star at the legendary DeMatha Catholic High School, is ranked as a four-star prospect and the No. 110 player in the Class of 2022, No. 26 small forward, and No. 4 player in the state of Maryland, according to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings.

St. John’s extended an offer to the small forward one day after Big East rival Seton Hall and head coach Kevin Willard offered Tyrell Ward.

Ward, listed at 6-foot-5, 175 pounds, also holds offers from Providence, LSU, Georgia, Southeastern Louisiana, Georgetown, George Mason, and Wake Forest.

The Red Storm are on a hot streak on the recruiting trail following two commitments within the span of six weeks from Long Island Lutheran High School stars Drissa Traore and Rafael Pinzon and Anderson and his staff are trying to keep that momentum rolling.

St. John’s does not have a commitment in the Class of 2022, but the program is eyeing a massive haul within the junior class, starting with Kyle Cuffe Jr., a legacy prospect and highly sought after recruit within his class.

Tyrell Ward has not set a timetable for his recruitment in terms of a cutdown of his list or a decision date, but expect members of the Class of 2022 to take their time with their respective decisions as the NCAA has continued the ban on in-person recruiting events and visits through January 1 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
