Myles Dread Commits To Penn State, Starts Off Basketball Recruiting Class Of 2018

While James Franklin and his staff continue their recruiting drought, Pat Chambers and the basketball team got some more good news today, receiving a commitment from class of 2018 forward Myles Dread of Gonzaga High School in Washington, D.C.

Pat Chambers and Co. currently have no scholarships to give out for the 2017 academic year, so Dread will be the first of what is essentially the team’s next recruiting class, which will have three scholarships remaining after Dread’s commitment. While Dread hasn’t garnered much interest from other teams thus yet — he hasn’t earned a star rating from 24/7Sports — the small forward brings loads of potential, coming from the same AAU team as rising sophomore Josh Reaves who proved to be an asset for Penn State last year.

With 2017 all but lost for recruits barring any transfers, the class of 2018 will be pivotal for Chambers, especially if his class of 2016 recruits lives up to their already high expectations. While Dread isn’t currently the most sought-after player, he plays on a team square in the middle of the fertile DMV area, giving him the opportunity to improve over his last two years in high school and, as Pat Chambers likely hopes, time to draw other members of the class of 2018 to Happy Valley.
