Title: 2019 Recruiting
Post by: Checkmate on December 12, 2017, 10:47:38 am
While the 2018 class will be a big one, 2019 will be light, with just Cornish coming off the books for sure. Yeboah could go the Nyama route and go pro after graduating; no clue whether that's the thought but it makes some sense. And then there's the question of whether anyone transfers out, which I could see happening with a crowded backcourt.

What's interesting is there are 29 offers out according verbal commits for only 1 available spot. Granted some of these offers are reaches, especially Jalen Lecque who is a 5 star that is ranked 14th in his class according ESPN. Still wonder if the staff plans to save one of the remaining scholarships from 2018 for 2019 or if they know have players than plan to leave early or what have you.

not sure if this is the right thread or if we need a new one- some 3 stars have shown up on the radar (yes, it's early):

Dominiq Penn (looking at the B10)

For you rabid recruiting folks, Zed Key '20 and Brentwood will play at Ward Melville on Monday. 4pm tip. He had 18 and 15 in their first meeting.

VerbalCommits said that our offer's in as well as a few other schools. From the footage, he's decent, but may just be a kid who's using his size (6-6/6-7) to put up numbers against Long Island public schools. Of course, he's just a sophomore.

This should be a good game. Zed Key will be up against  Sobel, 6'-7" WM senior, He is a really good defender on the boards. I know his dad and his younger brother..

When it's all Said and Done Zed Key will be a MM+/ Borderline HM recruit.
Though he's 6'7 he has a tremendous wingspan and standing reach which compensates for his lack of Height. He also plays with a good motor.

Per Pat Lawless, we have Bloomfield (NJ) guard Mike Ramos on our radar. VC says he has offers from Manhattan and Kent State, and that we and Columbia are in to watch him tonight. 6-1 guard. If Columbia's in the mix, he's obviously no dummy.

More on Ramos: https://www.tapinto.net/towns/bloomfield/articles/boys-basketball-ramos-sets-high-expectations-for

A couple more crumbs from Lawless: we caught ‘19 guards Heru Bligen and Chris Ings at games at the end of January. We’ve made an offer to both.

Checkmate, Mike Ramos is the best out of the 3 you mentioned. Plays AAU ball for the NY Jayhawks(Same Club as Frankie Pollicelli). Kid can shoot the ball. Is creative with his dribble but doesn't over dribble. Makes the simple play. Has sneaky athleticism. Good first step. His recruitment can get interesting when AAU ball rolls around. If SBU can get him in 2019 to replace Cornish it's a GOOD get. Ings is the toughest kid of the bunch. Played behind Quade Green (McDonald's AA, Current UK PG) his Frosh and Sophomore years of HS. With Green off to Kentucky now, Ings has the keys for Neumann Goretti HS in the tough philly catholic league. He's 6'2 has solid vision, is athletic at the rim. And flat out tough and battle tested.Wont back down from anything. He'd be a good get as well. But Ramos's jumpshot makes him a better player. Ings is the tougher player.

Nelson would be a 2018 guy. Looks like a player. Explosive athlete, tough with a high motor. Doesn't look like he forces the issue. Sign him up.

2019 G/F Nathan Johnson from Waukee HS in Iowa has gotten a lot of D-I interest, and we're the latest to make an offer (per his Twitter). He reclassified and will do a year at Hargrave Military Academy beginning in the fall. Evidently Air Force offered him a couple summers ago but they filled up their roster, and schools like UTEP and Florida Gulf Coast have shown interest as well.

Allegedly 6-7. I can't say I'm wowed by him, but he looks like he's pretty athletic, plays hard, can score inside and out, and can put it on the floor too.

Highlight reel ...

i like him.  he's like a multi-tooled 3 (dribble, dunk, shoot, rebound, penetrate).  kind of like an ahmad walker under control.

maybe with more weight can play some 4?
Title: Re: 2019 Recruiting
Post by: Seawolf97 on April 25, 2018, 03:33:45 pm
grave.Certainly has alot of skills .  Could be a good pickup especially after a year at Hargrave

Another offer goes out to 2019 6-9 F Tariq Balogun, who helped the Miller School win a state title in Virginia. He’s raw, long and lean, and a Brit like Akwasi. Probably not an alpha dog but potentially helpful underneath on both ends of the floor.

There’s an old skill video out there, but better yet, we have some recent uncut game footage. “#23” per the announcers in this video.

https://youtu.be/EiV4_liYhCo

A synopsis from another site:

“After a solid summer with BWSL’s 16U group, Balogun transferred from Walsingham and will be suiting up for Miller School outside of Charlottesville this year. He’s a very interesting prospect to keep an eye on, and it wouldn’t be much of a stretch to say he’s a midmajor plus kid moving forward. At 6’9”, he has an intriguing skill set offensively as he can shoot the midrange, score with his back to the basket and in face up situations and he’s nimble enough to run the floor and finish in transition. His best asset right now is the fact that he has both a high motor and a high IQ of the game. He always seems to be in the right place at the right time. His addition is much needed for a Miller squad that made the VISAA Division Two Championship game and return their top four guards who led the team in scoring throughout the year.”

We've been looking way way ahead to 2021 and 2022 grads, but a couple offers were reported today for 2019s Robert Carpenter and Mattia Acunzo. Give me the better shooter, especially if Akwasi leaves after this year.

The grad transfer market was white hot this offseason. Akwasi’s good enough to get a look from a Big East/A-10 kind of school. Then again, Cremo and Nichols ended up at Villanova and Florida State so maybe he can set his sights higher - some young team could use a shooter with his collegiate/international experience. I’m hoping it doesn’t happen and I have no inside info but I’d say it’s at least a possibility that this will be it for him, if not a strong one. The other option could be to sign with a pro team in Europe a la Nyama.

Another offer has gone out to 2019 Gibson Jimerson. He's getting high-major interest. I'm kind of meh with his highlight tape however. Athleticism seems ordinary and release is slow, but hey, if he's somebody who can spot up and shoot the hell out of it, we can always use those.

Boals, Weber, and Thornton were all at the same even tonight recruiting Christian Ray. Have to think he's a priority for the only scholarship for 19 class.
