CINCINNATI — Xavier University head basketball coach Chris Mack announced today an impressive five-member recruiting class that is ranked in the top 10 nationally by most of the major recruiting services, including No. 4 by ESPN.com and No. 9 by Scout.com. It is the highest ranked recruiting class in Xavier history.
The star-studded class includes 6-6 small forward Trevon Bluiett from Indianapolis (Ind.) Park Tudor School, 6-9 power forward Makinde London from Montverde (Fla.) Academy, 6-5 guard J.P. Macura from Lakeville (Minn.) North High School, 6-9 center Sean O’Mara from Lisle (Ill.) Benet Academy and 6-4 guardEdmond Sumner from Detroit Country Day School.
“This is an awesome day for Xavier Basketball,” said Mack. “While many recruiting experts have labeled our five-man class as a top class nationally, we feel we have the best shooting class in the entire country. My staff worked very hard to identify talented players with tremendous character. The five-man class of Edmond Sumner, JP Macura, Makinde London, Sean O’Mara and Trevon Bluiett has the makings of a special one.”
Sean O’Mara (Lisle, Ill./Benet Academy) is a tough and skilled post player from the Chicago area who also plays left tackle for one of the top football teams in Illinois, Benet Academy. O’Mara averaged 16 points, eight rebounds and 3.5 assists as a junior.
“Sean O’Mara is a tough kid, a winner,” said Mack. “He has played both football and basketball for four years at Benet Academy. He loves contact and is one of the most physical seniors in the country. Sean is an excellent passer and possesses a great feel for the game at 6-9. He loves the low post and is extremely efficient with his footwork and ability to score in traffic. He rebounds, defends and plays team basketball.”
