    Isaac Traudt, the 6-foot-9, 205-pound power forward from Grand Island (NE) Senior High School, says that Creighton, Nebraska, Missouri, Louisville, Oklahoma and Virginia are making him a priority.

    He broke down each school for ZAGSBLOG Wednesday:

    Creighton: “They were really the first school to recruit me and they are also the only school I’ve had to the chance to visit. I’m really close with coach [Greg] McDermott and coach [Paul] Lusk. I love the way they play and share the ball.”

    Nebraska: “Coach [Fred] Hoiberg started recruiting me pretty early and says that I could come in and make an impact right away. I’ve developed a good relationship with him.”

    Missouri: “I talk to everyone on the coaching staff and they have a really good culture. They are having a great year and it’s been fun to watch.”

    Louisville: “I’ve developed a good relationship with coach [Chris] Mack and coach [Luke] Murray. Their program is a historic one and have had great success with wings like myself.”

    Oklahoma: “I grew up watching them quite a bit. Especially when they had guys like Buddy Hield and Trae Young. I talk to coach [Lon] Kruger frequently and I love how he gives his guys freedom.”

    Virginia: “They’ve been recruiting me hard recently. They offered me last week and I’ve developed really good relationships with coach [Tony] Bennett and coach [Kyle] Getter. They tell me I’m similar to how they use Sam Hauser. I love how they make defense a priority.”

    Traudt recently completed virtual visits with Virginia and Marquette.

    Ranked by as the No. 11 power forward and No. 58 overall prospect in the Class of 2022, Traudt says he’s looking to improve his ability to be dynamic with the ball off the bounce.

    Traudt says he’s thought about cutting his list, ‘maybe in the summer’.

    “I don’t know if it’ll happen or not,” he said. “I’m a long ways away from committing.”
