  • Myles Cale won’t get to Seton Hall until next year, but after signing his National Letter of Intent on Wednesday he can’t wait to get started.

    “I’ve been looking forward ever since I really committed to just getting [the signing] out of the way and getting on campus and working out and playing at the Prudential Center as soon as possible,” Cale said Tuesday by phone.

    Ranked the No. 16 shooting guard in the Class of 2017, the 6-foot-5, 195-pound Cale committed to Seton Hall last March over Xavier, James Madison, Temple, St. Joe’s and Delaware.

    He is Seton Hall’s lone signee in the Class of 2017, although the staff is recruiting several point guards (Trevon Duval, Nojel Eastern) as well as prioritizing big men like Bourama Sidibe of St. Benedict’s Prep.

    Troy Brown Jr., the 6-foot-7 point guard/small forward from Centennial (NV) High School, committed to Oregon on Monday.

    “I’m going to Oregon,” Brown told “That’s my final decision.”

    “I love the coaching staff and the style of play fits me,” Brown explained. “One guy that has done an amazing job of recruiting me is coach [Tony] Stubblefield. He’s always been there with me. They’ve been there for a really long time. I like coach [Dana] Altman as a coach. Their defensive is amazing and the way they run it.”

    Brown had taken official visits to Ohio State (Sept. 2), Alabama (Sept. 9), Oregon (Sept. 23), Kansas (Sept. 30), and Georgetown (Oct. 5). He is also considered Arizona, UNLV, and California.

    Ranked the No. 3 small forward in the Class of 2017 by, Brown joins point guard Victor Bailey and power forward Abu Kigab in Oregon’s 2017 class. Kigab plans to sign Wednesday.

    The Pelicans will release former Lincoln High School star Lance Stephenson in order to sign former Kentucky guard Archie Goodwin, according to reports.

    Goodwin, who was released by the Suns on Oct. 24, confirmed the reports on Twitter Sunday night.

    Stephenson, a one-and-done out of Cincinnati who is New York State’s all-time leading scorer, suffered a groin injury and will undergo surgery on Tuesday in Philadelphia, agent Mark Bartelstein told ZAGSBLOG.
