Scottsdale Community College is getting close to the start of the school year, and has a great group of Sophomores and Freshmen that you will want to get on early. SCC has been nationally ranked for two-straight years (top-10 in 2019/2020) and last year finished as the #1 seed in Region-I of the NJCAA Division-II. All (6) sophomores on their roster moved on to scholarship-level programs, including (3) NCAA Division-I programs, and this year's group is more talented than last season.
Here is a list of the up-coming recruitable (Qualifiers) prospects on the roster with basic information on them (No particular order), as provided by Head Coach Mark Bunker . . .

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. I do not have access to our facilities as of yet, so film requests will be very limited at the moment for transfers and incoming Freshmen. Our season is set to begin in January, so hopefully we will be able to move forward from there.
