    St. John’s and Rick Pitino have landed a commitment from four-star class of 2023 small forward Brady Dunlap, per Joe Tipton of On3.

    Dunlap, the 6-foot-7, 180-pound forward from Harvard Westlake (CA), was previously signed to Notre Dame. Now, he’s part of the Red Storm.

    “Coach Pitino in New York is special,” he told ZAGSBLOG. “We will get it rolling. His system benefits shooters and that’s what I bring to the table. I’m very excited to get started.”

    Dunlap was one of the best remaining prospects in the class of 2023 before committing. He’s ranked No. 150 in the 2023 class per 247Sports.

    “Brady Dunlap has an awesome future,” said Pitino. “He’s a gym rat who shoots it as well as any wing basketball player out of the high school ranks. Brady is athletic, quick and will really thrive in our fastbreak system.”

    Dunlap is a top-10 prospect from The Golden State who helped guide national powerhouse Harvard-Westlake to a 33-2 record last season. Harvard-Westlake finished the 2022-23 campaign ranked No. 6 nationally according to MaxPreps and No. 11 in ESPN’s SCNext Top-25.

    As a senior at Harvard-Westlake, Dunlap earned All-CIF First Team honors after averaging 17.0 points shooting 47.0 percent from the field to go with 5.0 rebounds per contest. Dunlap helped lead the Wolverines to the 2023 California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) championship, as he scored 16 points against Santa Maria St. Joseph in the open division title game on March 11 at Golden 1 Center.

    During his junior year at Harvard-Westlake, Dunlap posted 16.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game and earned All-CIF First Team honors.

    Prior to his senior season at Harvard-Westlake, Dunlap averaged 16.0 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game for Strive For Greatness (Calif.), LeBron James’ sponsored team, on the Nike EYBL Circuit in the summer of 2022. He also shot 46.0 percent from the floor and 34.0 percent from distance.

    St. John’s has also added six players from the transfer portal, the most recent being former Oregon State small forward Glenn Taylor Jr. There will be a lot of new faces for the Red Storm next season.
