St. John's is close to pulling off a stunning late recruiting coup.
Remi Barry, a 6'7" swingman from France, is leaning toward St. John's over UCLA, Arizona State, and Colorado. Barry was ruled ineligible for his senior season by the California Interscholastic Federation and remains one of the elite players left unsigned.
Dwayne Polee Jr., another 6'7" swingman with freakish leaping ability, also seems to be leaning towards St. John's. Polee was about to announce last week that he was signing with Georgia, but he put off that announcement.
