New Aggies (2/9): Rashaun Agee

Updated: Aug 6, 2020




Don't know about you, but we can't keep up with all the talent Chris Jans has brought in particularly in the last few months. This predicament inspired us to start a blog series on newcomers for the 2020 season. This is not limited to the 2020 recruiting class but will cover all Aggies we have yet to see suit up. Please enjoy the second installment of this 9-part series!


Did we miss something? Let us know in the comments!

High school and JuCo Rankings

The résumé: There wasn’t a player on this list who enhanced his individual résumé more than Agee over the past five months. By the midway point of the season the 6-7 big man was in Chicago area Player of the Year conversations. He was a double-double machine, averaging 19.3 points and 12.9 rebounds a game while leading Bogan to a Class 3A state runner-up finish.

The talent: A big man who can run the floor, Agee beats players at his position down the floor, finishes in transition and attacks the offensive glass for putbacks. The face-up game is still in the development stage, but he did step out and knock down 16 three-pointers on the season. Agee is tough, competitive and has evolved into a coveted mid-major prospect.

The recruitment: With a senior season emergence, Agee’s recruitment took time to take off. Now it’s wide open and is going to take some time to figure out.

Buffalo offered early on this past season but coach Nate Oats moved on to Alabama. There is a lengthy list of offers and interest, including Cleveland State, Kent State, New Mexico State, St. Bonaventure, Western Michigan, UW-Milwaukee, Washington State and Northern Illinois, which was the first and only in-state program that’s been there from the start.

Highlights
  • Get ready for some above the rim play, Aggie Nation!


Eligibility and Fit
  • A rare freshman recruit from Jans with four years of eligibility. Redshirted the 2019 season likely to qualify academically but not confirmed.

  • Pure speculation but expect Agee to split time with Likayi and Kiir in the front court as he learns the Jans system.

Aggie Comparison
  • David Fisher (2005-06)
