Two days after 4-star point guard Dellquan Warren decommitted from Rutgers, another highly touted prospect is set to visit. 4-star forward Bryce Dortch will be in Piscataway in early June per 24/7 High School Hoops.

Dortch is 6’8” wing from the Boston area where he attends Brimmer and May school in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. He is currently listed as the No. 113 overall prospect in the 2024 class per 247 Sports composite rankings.

As a junior, Dortch made a name for himself on the New England Prep Circuit. He was injured towards the end of his season but was back to playing during April’s live period. Dortch is very good defender with long arms, a high motor and good bounce. He can create his own shot and is extremely athletic.

247 Sports recruiting analyst Adam Finklestein recently watched Dortch in late April on the Adidas AAU circuit and was impressed. He wrote “Mass Rival’s Bryce Dortch remains a high-upside proposition because of his length, fluidity, ability to cover the court, and natural touch.”

His offer list includes Texas A&M, Xavier, Seton Hall, Providence, Virginia Tech, VCU and UMass among others. He already visited Marquette and will take an official visit Rutgers the first weekend of June. He visited both schools last fall as well.

Steve Pikiell was one of the first to offer Dortch all the way back in August 2021. Getting him on campus so quickly with a newly opened scholarship for the 2024 class is an example of how organized and prepared the Rutgers staff is. This isn’t a recruit they’re rushing the process with, but rather someone they’ve shown interest in for years. This is how you continue to build upward when adversity hits.

With the dynamic Ace Bailey and skilled big man Lathan Sommerville committed, things are trending positively with Dylan Harper, the No. 2 recruit in the 2024 class. Pursuing Dortch, a competitive and hard working two-way player makes sense as a potential backfill for Warren. You can never have enough versatile wings in my opinion. It fits the way Pikiell wants to play, having pieces that can be placed in multiple positions.

As I said earlier this week, the sky is not falling. Rather, the beat goes on.

    Looks like Pike et al are well prepared to find quality alternatives when decommitted occur. Good for them — and RU fans!
