Jack Dougherty since the beginning of the year, the number of its employees has increased. 6’8″ 195 lbs forward from Brookfield, Wisconsin, Central School, Dougherty received offers from Ball condition, Indiana, milwaukee, richmondAnd Southern Illinois since the middle of last month.
His latest offer comes from the Spiders. Dougherty made an informal visit to the program over the weekend and was offered Chris Mooney as a result.
“The visit was amazing,” Dougherty said. “I have been talking to Coach Mooney for two months so I really enjoyed meeting the whole coaching staff and team. It was a fun atmosphere and it was very interesting to watch them play. They also have a really beautiful campus.”
Major programs are also following Daugherty. Iowa, Marquette, penn state, VirginiaAnd Wisconsin are major programs that he says he has heard about. He shared his thoughts on several schools with 247Sports:
Iowa: “I’m talking to Sherman Dillard And Fran McCaffery. We talked about my plans for the summer and what I like most about their game. Coach McCaffery mentioned that I would fit in well there. They are one of the biggest programs I hear about the most lately. I went to visit with my father and two of my AAU trainers. I really had fun. It was an amazing atmosphere and their coaches were a lot of fun to be around. It was a great experience and they played great against Rutgers. It was interesting to see what they have going on there.”
Marquette: “I’m talking to Neil Berry. They have picked up summer rolling into this season. I was at an exhibition tournament for my high school team and we’ve been in touch ever since. Our conversations were good. He told me what elements of my game I need to work on before the youth season, so I focused on that. Now they are in the top ten in the country, and it was interesting to watch them. My sister plays volleyball there, so I have the opportunity to get to know the campus. It’s about 15 minutes from my house.”
penn state: “I talked to Mike Farrelly. He applied in November or December of that season. It was a good conversation. We talked about what they liked about my game. They love that I’m shooting 48 percent from threes right now and how I play with a high IQ.”
Wisconsin: “I was visiting last year. I’ve been talking to them for two years now. I’m talking to Sharif Chambliss. My dad played there, my mom went there. They have an amazing campus and a historically amazing program. They recruit big players and the coaches are great. I like what they’re building there.”
Although he has received several offers lately, Dougherty is still open for hire. He is focused on increasing his body weight, showing improvement in his game after the rebound, and maintaining his effectiveness as a shooter.
Dougherty, who received three stars, is ranked 52 among small forwards in the 247Sports 2024 position rankings.
