Jamie Dixon's hot hand continues as he landed one of the top 15 prospects in the 2006 class, 6'5" Mustapha Heron will play at Sacred Heart HS in Waterbury, CT this year. Heron can play PG, SG, or SF. As for his game despite his young age he has no big weaknesses. He's already built like a college senior, he can shoot, play excellent defense, and has a high IQ.
I know that Pitt fans get skeptical with such early commits because of Terrelle Pryor, but that was a completely different situation. Pryor developed into an even better football player after committing ti the Panthers in basketball so it was not out of the blue that he would choose football instead. Heron's father is close with Barry Rohrssen, and like the case with Maverick Rowan, I see no reason why they would change their mind.
I stated for months that Dixon and his staff have really got aggressive in the recruitment of big time prospects and now you are seeing the result. A future perimeter of Heron, Rowan, Josh Newkirk, and Damon Wilson is a group that even Duke would love. And Detrick Mostella may be in that group, too. Pretty amazing for a coach that many left for dead last year.
