While Utah State was wrapping up its season, two incoming recruits finished their high school careers last week. Jojo McGlaston and Carson Shanks didn't get the results they wanted — few ever do, except Jalen Moore — but they definitely got noticed for their efforts to keep their seasons going:

• McGlaston's Gaels went all the way to the NorCal finals, a first-ever for the school, but could not overcome College Park on Saturday. Dublin fell in a 93-90 overtime game, despite McGlaston's record 35 points. He also had 14 rebounds, showcasing the skills that coaches believe will one day make him a solid Mountain West player. McGlaston, a guard prospect for the fall, has not yet signed, but his first available date to do so will be April 17. He says his school will have a signing day event for him.

• Shanks, a 7-foot center, helped Prior Lake win nine of its last 11 games, but the Lakers suffered a first-round upset in the sectional tournament. The Minnesotan now turns ahead to his Utah State career, getting ready for a weights program this summer. It's still unclear if he'll redshirt, because Utah State has significant depth at his position. But the Aggies hope he's a big part of their future. He's already been signed.
