From two years ago when the 2025 class were incoming freshmen in the Tri-Regions, we put the so called basketball experts on notice that the spotlight would certainly shift some to Central, South and West Texas. The ’25 class features three Top 100 National prospects and several others that are already drawing offers or interest from division one programs at all levels.
Enter Aiden Disu (St. Michaels Catholic Academy), the 6’7” 200lb hybrid forward certainly has all the potential to become another prospect that solidifies himself in the mid to high major levels of recruiting battles. Disu just wrapped up a very successful spring and summer that saw him pick up his first offers with plenty of other interest.
“I think this summer has gone pretty well for me. Being on the ProSkills EYBL team it’s helped me put my name out there, compete & play in front of all these coaches. It’s just a bigger platform and an opportunity to showcase my skills,” said Disu.
Because of his play on the spring and summer circuit, Disu now reports offers from UTA, North Texas, and UC Riverside. He’s also drawn interest from the likes of Sam Houston State, Oral Roberts, Rhode Island, and been on the campuses of Texas A&M and SMU.
The setting has certainly helped Disu’s recruiting stock. However, since the end of his sophomore year at Hays, the two most noticeable improvements on the court has been a more consistent outside jumper and his ability to finish strong.
“I think the biggest difference from last year to this year, spring to summer, I’m able to play above the rim whenever. I used to be able to dunk only in warm-ups, I’m now able to physically show that off and that’s helped my recruitment.”
One change for Aiden that we already mentioned, is he has transferred into St. Michaels Catholic Academy in northwest Austin. The move did come as a surprise to some, but clearly the young man had been weighing his options and now teams with one of the best 2026 prospects in the Tri-Regions to create a formidable 1-2 punch.
“It’s definitely been on my mind for a couple of years now. I actually played aau with the point guard at St Michaels and he was telling me they get training three times a week, mobility and strength. They’re going to let me play my position and just getting into a better environment. Also knowing Bo Ogden (2026) is there, it was just a better overall environment.”
Standing 6’7”, his height and length catch your attention, and he’s got a solid frame to add. For those that have not seen Disu, his game is very well-rounded. He surprises on-lookers with his ability to be a point-forward and bring the ball up the court or be the outlet to break a press. Since his middle school days, Aiden prides himself in having those handles. Integrate that with his athleticism, now consistently playing above the rim, and adding the invaluable skillset of a set perimeter game, his stock is in prime position to shoot up the charts.
Aiden doesn’t have to go too far for any advice or guidance on what is looming after high school. As most know, the college athletic genes run deep in the Disu family. From older brother Dylan now starring at Texas on the 40 acres, and his twin sisters, Megan and Madi starting their college journey this fall after signing with Rhode Island University for volleyball.
“I’ve definitely had talks with my sister, my mom & my dad. What I’m looking for, is not a high major where I’ll sit the bench and not play that much. I’m looking for somewhere I can thrive, have a chance where I can really play and showcase my skill. In the end I think it’s going to be mid-major or high major, but I’m not focusing on just prestigious schools.”
Disu’s recruitment is on the cusp of a breakout. If he continues his success and improvement on the court this fall/winter with St. Michaels, we fully expect to name Disu next year as another Top National prospect in the 2025 class from the Texas Tri-Regions. Helping St. Michael’s return to the TAPPS 5A State Championship game, and getting them over the hump will only cement his cause.
