2013 Basketball Recruiting
« on: March 19, 2012, 10:22:48 pm »
Figured I would get this started. We have 4 scholarships for this class with Rouse, Hayes, Brenton, and Bracey all graduating next year.

It looks like we just got involved with Kahlil Dukes. It's also been reported that we've offered PG Josh James from Stepinac.

Saw on Twitter earlier today (@TheRecruitScoop), for what it's worth, that you guys have the following two players on campus today:
2013 PF Greg Senat (Marianapolis Prep, CT)
2013 PG Keith Williams (Deer Park, NY)

It 's  nice to know we  have the luxury to recruit players still in thier junior year of highschool.  I still think bigger and better things are ahead for basketball especially with the new arena .

Over the weekend Stony Brook target Jaquan Lynch said Stony Brook was working the hardest on him. Lynch has offers from Rutgers, Dayton, Drexel.

Hopefully once he sees the new arena it will convince him.

Well, you lose Brenton and Bracey after this year, neither of whom (despite Brenton's rebounding prowess) are true "bigs", and then only McAlister after 2014, with Mayo gone after 2015.
You gain Warney this year to replace Carter, but you also add King (6'9") for next 4 years, and Mayo (also 6'9") for next 3 years.....I think you are good with adding 1 big in the 2013 class.  I see you in pretty good shape moving forward up front.  The key to me was redshirting Mayo/King last year.  No matter how good your guards are, you need the horses up front to rebound.  One added benefit may be also that Mayo/Warney are better shot-blockers than anyone you had last year.

Reported today— "Vermont freshman standout Four McGlynn has requested a release from the school and will likely seek to transfer to another institution, according to the Twitter account of the York Ballers, McGlynn’s former AAU team."

Wonder if Pikiell is interested?

I doubt he would even be allowed to transfer within the AE and Stony Brook already has more scholarship players than scholarships.

Something weird is going on over there. To have four transfers in one year is ridiculous. The fact that one of them was a two year starter and former DPOY, and the other was the AE ROY makes it even weirder. They now only have 9 scholarship players eligible for next year. They better hope that their incoming freshman can play, and that nobody gets hurt. I think they're in for a tumultuous season.

6' 2" guard Wesley Myers from Boys and Girls high school in Brooklyn took an unofficial visit to Stony Brook last week. Myers has offers Miami and South Carolina. It's great to see him taking Stony Brook seriously despite having high major suitors.

I've seen him listed as 6' - 6'2, and as both a PG and SG.  It's clear SB has a strong presence in the NY-area, and as the name/program become better known, keeping local talent at home is a must.  With the Mitchell commit, you still will probably bring in at least one more guard in this class, as well as at least one big.  With the July live period about to start, this is a really important time for all programs, but especially yours considering all the positive publicity you received from your baseball program.  It's imperative that you build off that buzz in your recruiting; another class like this year's and the program will be in great shape moving into the new arena (and maybe new conference).

Myers would be a great addition in the back court. He would be coming in as a frosh with Coley and Jackson as seniors and Puriefoy as a soph.  That would be impressive  especially the way we rotate  our guys during a game.

Don't forget Reid and Mitchell either!  You lose 4 guards over the next 2 years (Hayes/Rouse this year and Coley/Jackson the following year), so right now you've added Puriefoy, Reid and Mitchell (2013?).  At least one more (Myers?) and you should be set until the 2014 class....should be interesting to see who the other guard turns out to be.  For me, he should probably be able to play both positions, as Reid is a 2G, and Mitchell is a combo leaning to the 2G, with him more of a PG to back up Puriefoy.

Several sources on twitter are saying Philadelphia SF/PF Jeremiah Worthem has cut his list down to Charlotte, Siena, Niagara, Robert Morris, LIU, Wagner, Quinnipiac, and Stony Brook.

Anyone know anything about him?

Really good player!  I've seen him in high school and AAU.  High energy, very good rebounder, hard worker who can score inside, but is also working on his outside shot.  One of the top Seniors in Philly this year.  If you get him, I would imagine he would be a starter from day one at the SF position.  He's about 6'6", with long arms and a tough demeanor on the floor.  Another year of working on his wing skills would make him a very good inside/outside player.  He would be a very good get for your program......
