2025 Providence College High School Recruiting Primer, Version 1.0

Although the 2025 class won’t enroll in two years, it is never too early to look ahead to future recruiting classes. Kim English in his short time as Providence head coach has been incredibly aggressive offering 2025 prospects.

Below, we list out the 2025 recruits who have either received an offer from Providence or have had Providence show interest. Just like our other recruiting articles, we’ll continue to monitor the offer list and update this article as more offers inevitably come in.

If you are looking for recruiting articles for the most immediate high school class, we have a robust 2024 High School Recruiting Primer here: https://theprovidencecrier.com/2023/03/27/providence-college-basketball-recruiting-class-of-2024/


Darius Adams – Combo Guard – Manasquan, NJ – 5 Star, Top 25 – https://247sports.com/Player/Darius-Adams-46127781/

Adams is the next great one from Manasquan, a perennial NJ shore basketball powerhouse. Adams will likely be pursued by all the Northeast basketball powers, with home state Rutgers making a strong push.

Kiyan Anthony – Shooting Guard – Christ the King, New York – 4 Star Top 75 – https://247sports.com/Player/Kiyan-Anthony-46135372/

I heard his father could play a bit. And yes, writing about Carmelo’s son means I’m officially old. Cuse will obviously be tough to beat, as will the Johnnies.

Danny Carbuccia – Point Guard – Archbishop Stepinac – 4 Star, Top 50 – https://247sports.com/Player/Danny-Carbuccia-46128732/

Carbuccia comes from prestigious Archbishop Step, which pumps out D1 players on a routine basis. Duke/UNC/St. John’s will be a threat here. Carbuccia was an offer under the prior regime, so we’ll see how hard English pushes for him.

Omarr Smith – Combo Guard from Baltimore, MD

This is a new offer from Coach Kim English and continues a trend of DMV offers in the 2024 and 2025 class.

Myles Blackley – Shooting Guard from Summit, NJ https://247sports.com/Player/Myles-Blackley-46136068/

Summit isn’t a traditional basketball program, which may be why we haven’t seen a lot of high major offers for Blackley. English is likely hoping to get in early here before offers flood in.

Trey McKenney – Combo Guard from Michigan – 4 star Top 50 – https://247sports.com/player/trey-mckenney-46127533/

Any time Nate Oats wants a player, I’m on board. Not sure what the connection is here beyond English offering an elite player.

Derek Dixon – Combo Guard from Gonzaga High in Washington, D.C. – https://247sports.com/player/derek-dixon-46136901/

Another DMV offer where English is in early relative to peers.

Jalen Rougier-Roane – Sidwell Friends in Washington, D.C. – https://247sports.com/player/jalen-rougier-roane-46136499/

English offered a handful of Sidwell Friends players the moment he was hired. This was one of those offers. Itโ€™s a wise move, given the history of success at this prep program.

Acaden Lewis – Shooting Guard from Sidwell Friends in Washington, D.C. – https://prephoops.com/player/acaden-lewis/

Another Sidwell Friends offer from Kim English. It is apparent he is going to mine the DMV prep talent in a big way.

Nigel James – PG from Cushing Academy/ Expressions Elite

The stock of James is blowing up. He had a fantastic AAU season and is really developing into a national recruit.

Tyler Jackson – PG from Baltimore, MD – https://247sports.com/Recruitment/Tyler-Jackson-159189/RecruitInterests/

This is a recruitment that is typical of a high level DMV recruit. English will have his hands full pursuing Jackson, as Maryland, Houston, Bama, Illinois, and others have offered. English offered while at George Mason, and I expect that interest to continue.


Cooper Flagg – Forward from Maine – 5 Star Top 10 Player – https://247sports.com/Player/Cooper-Flagg-46129443/

We just all know that Flagg will end up at Duke, right? Regardless, I love the statement this offer makes from English. It shows he isn’t afraid to pursue the best of the best.

Sebastian Wilkins – Forward from Mass Rivals/Lawrence Academy – https://247sports.com/Recruitment/Sebastian-Wilkins-159541/RecruitInterests/ – Unranked

Wilkins comes from the friendly confines of Mass Rivals. If historical trends hold true with this AAU program, his stock will continue to grow as he develops. Rutgers is recruiting him as well, as they are starting to make Mass Rivals a frequent stop.
