Raven Owen Jr. is a 2014 point guard at St. Joe’s-Metuchen who plays alongside Kentucky-bound big man Karl Towns Jr. and Vanderbilt-bound guard Wade Baldwin. He will be contributing to ZAGSBLOG periodically. Here’s his first entry.
I’m really looking forward to a great senior year both academically and athletically. Transferring from Xaverian High School in Brooklyn to St. Joseph’s High School in Metuchen, New Jersey, at the start of my junior year has worked out better than I expected.
My transfer was related to a change in my father’s job status. While I have nothing but love for my former teachers, coaches, teammates and classmates at Xaverian, my experience so far at St. Joe’s has been phenomenal. To read more of this story, click here

Hey guys, Jeff Newberry of New Mexico Junior College.
Just going to give you guys a brief rundown on my recruiting for now due to a lot of people wanting to know where I’m at in the process. I now have a final five of UConn, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M and LSU, in no particular order. That’s my final five. Nobody else is getting in the mix.
It is now the period where Division 1 coaches can come in and legally see me workout and play pick up.
I’ve been in contact with a number of coaches such as Tubby Smith (Texas Tech) , Kevin Ollie (UConn) , Travis Ford (Oklahoma State) and Glynn Cyprien (Texas A&M). To read more of this story, click here
