‣ Five-star recruit Joson Sanon of the Class of 2025 has received scholarship offers from Creighton, Miami (FL), and Oklahoma State.
‣ Sanon ranks as the No. 1 small forward in the 2025 class and could potentially play in the NCAA as early as 2024.
The college basketball recruiting scene is heating up as top prospect Joson Sanon has recently received three more scholarship offers. The 6-foot-5 small forward, ranked No. 12 overall and a five-star recruit in the Class of 2025, has added offers from Creighton, Miami (FL), and Oklahoma State to his list of potential schools. This brings his total number of offers to an impressive fourteen, including schools like Alabama, Boston College, and Georgetown.
Sanon, who averaged 12.6 points in his freshman season at Fall River Durfee High School, made waves in the basketball community with a strong performance on Nike’s EYBL 15u Circuit. This led to his transfer to Rockingham’s Vermont Academy, where he currently plays and helps the team rank No. 26 in the state.
In interviews, Sanon has expressed his desire to play for a winning program and emphasized the importance of loyalty in his decision-making process. He also revealed that he enjoys playing in systems that offer a lot of space on the floor, with one big in the paint and four players around him. The young standout takes inspiration from NBA player Brad Beal, observing how Beal takes his time and finds his spots on the court.
While Sanon’s basketball skills are garnering attention, there is still uncertainty surrounding his age. College scouts are curious about this aspect of his biography, and 247Sports director of scouting Adam Finkelstein noted that there is some confusion about the number of years Sanon has spent in high school. However, with his current junior season at Vermont Academy, Sanon could potentially graduate at the end of the year and move straight to college.
With his rankings at No. 9 overall and No. 1 for small forwards in the 2025 class, Sanon is an exciting prospect for college basketball enthusiasts. It remains to be seen whether he will commit to a college soon and potentially play as early as 2024, or explore other opportunities such as entering the NBA draft in 2029. With the NBA considering lowering its age limit to 18, Sanon’s path to professional basketball could take an unexpected turn.
