    Bo Bassett Recruiting Update (7/10/24)

    The top prospect in the high school Class of 2026, Bo Bassett, has vowed to keep fans abreast of his recruiting with daily Wednesday updates. 

    Well, today is Wednesday and true to his word, Bassett has posted an updated graphic which has eliminated a handful of schools from consideration. 

    Earlier this year, Bassett posted a graphic that contained the logos of approximately 80 schools, most of the DI variety, but some DII’s as well, to signify that he’s totally open in the recruiting process. After a few weeks of removing schools from the list, he’s down to 52. 

    The following schools were removed from this week’s graphic: CSU Bakersfield, George Mason, Hofstra, Northwestern, Rider, UW Parkside, West Liberty

    The following schools remain on Bassett’s graphic and therefore in contention for his services:

    Air Force, American, Arizona State, Army West Point, Brown, Bucknell, California Baptist, Cal Poly, Campbell, Clarion, Columbia, Cornell, Edinboro, Harvard, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Iowa State, Lehigh, Little Rock, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Millersville, Minnesota, Missouri, Navy, NC State, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota State, Northern Colorado, Northern Iowa, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Penn, Penn State, Pitt-Johnstown, Pittsburgh, Princeton, Purdue, Rutgers, South Dakota State, Stanford, The Citadel,  Virginia, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming.

    The following schools were removed from last week’s graphic: Appalachian State, Central Michigan, Cleveland State, Drexel, Kent State, Ohio, and St. Cloud State

    The following schools were removed from the graphic from 6/26: Binghamton, Bloomsburg, Duke, Gardner-Webb, Northern Illinois, Sacred Heart, SIU Edwardsville

    As you would expect, most traditional DI power programs are still in the hunt for the two-time Super 32 and Ironman champion. 

    Bassett is currently training for the U20 Pan-American Championships and the U20 World Championships. He posted the latest update from Lima, Peru, as the U20 Pan-American tournament takes place July 11th-13th and the U20 World Championships are September 2nd-8th in Pontevedra, Spain. 

    In 2021, Bassett captured gold medals in both freestyle and Greco-Roman at the U17 Pan-American Championships. That same year, at the U17 World Championships, Bassett claimed a gold medal in freestyle and was 12th in Greco. He’ll compete this year just in freestyle.
