The trio have combined to give St. John’s the No. 28 recruiting class, according to 247 Sports, in the Class of 2022 and the No. 4 class in the Big East Conference.

Head coach Mike Anderson does not have any players committed in the Classes of 2023 or 2024 but the Johnnies aren’t quite done in the Class of 2022 yet as Our Savior Lutheran (NY) prospect Sadiku Ayo has yet to announce his college decision.

The three-star recruit seems to be narrowing his decision between St. John’s and Seton Hall, similar to his teammate Jaquan Sanders.
