Two St. John’s basketball recruits are opting for professional basketball over college.

St. John’s basketball recruiting targets Matt and Ryan Bewley are two of the fastest rising prospects in the Class of 2023 and now the two brothers are being trailblazers.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Friday morning that the two prospects will become the first high-profile players to join the Overtime Elite basketball league, a new professional basketball league that allows players to earn money instead of playing college basketball.
