2018 A10 men's basketball VCU - Rhode Island

VCU coach Mike Rhoades

As VCU continues to hunt for future players, the list of potential commits will continue to evolve. 

The Rams add four scholarship freshmen in their class of 2019: guard Tre Clark, forward Nah'Shon Hyland, guard Jarren McAllister and forward Hason Ward. VCU will also add St. Christopher's guard Arnold Henderson VI as part of the class of 2019, as a walk-on. 

Looking further down the road, VCU, as of now, will have five scholarships open up for the class of 2020, after the senior seasons of Malik Crowfield, Marcus Evans, De'Riante Jenkins, Mike'l Simms and Issac Vann. 

On April 13, point guard Adrian 'Ace' Baldwin, a rising senior at St. Frances Academy in Baltimore, became VCU's first 2020 commit.

Here is a look at the players who have received offers from VCU, according to Verbal Commits and 247Sports. The list will be updated as new offers come, and as players commit to schools.
