2014 Recruiting
« on: May 04, 2013, 09:47:00 am »
I thought it was an appropriate time to introduce this topic.

It looks like SBU is kicking things off in hot pursuit of point guards.  The one I've seen some video of is Austin Tighman, and he looks like he could be a real good one.  But Paul Jorgensen has also received a Seawolves offer.  In addition, Aaron Edmead from Deer Park has been on the interest list for some time.   This is all well and good, and I realize that a focus is to go after an excellent point guard every other year to keep the momentum going for that key position.  However, somehow I wish there were more of a sense of urgency to go after a power foward or center early on.  These guys are harder to get, as there are many fewer of them and the ones there are tend to go higher D-1, but if SBU goes after a good one early ( a la Warney), maybe they can steal a good one again!!

BTW has anyone but me noticed that this site's posting clock has never caught up with daylight savings time?  Can that be fixed?  Until I noticed it I was beginning to think that all you guys were getting up before dawn just to post.

From twitter it looks like Stony Brook has a 2014 commitment from Bryan Sekunda. I think he's going to take a prep year before coming to Stony Brook. There doesn't seem to be too much information available, but it looks like his father was a stud for Penn State back in the 90's and those kinds of kids (puriefoy) seem to have a pretty strong grasp on the game.

This kid looks like a prolific scorer (over 20 pts./game over his HS career), and not afraid to drive to the basket.  His FT% is sterling, according to his HS stats, if you can believe them.  There is plenty of video on-line for those interested to check him out.

Any word on recruiting? I really haven't seen anything yet. Would be nice to have an idea who the coaching staff is focusing on.

It looks like the early recruiting focus has centered significantly on the point guard position.  Interest apparently has been shown in a significant number of them, with the following offers reportedly having been made so far:

--Paul Jorgensen (has impressed many so far)
--Austin Tilghman (a powerfully built, hard driver)
--Shavar Newkirk (very sought after, but seems to have eliminated SBU from consideration)

Looks like Stony Brook is in on recruiting Dominque Uhl. He'll be hard to land as he already has offers from Temple and Boston College. Uhl's originally from Germany. Hopefully Nyama can help in the recruiting.

Doubt very seriously if you have a chance to get him; his recruitment has been blowing up, and whether justified or not, he seems destined for the hi-mid level at least.  He's raw but talented, and I think you need more of a true "big" in this class.  Here's some info on him:

I did see that you offered (per verbal commits) a 6'9' big from Michigan, Deyonta Davis, but he's a '15 kid:

Looks like the Seawolves have made offers to two more PGs (By my count, that's 5 for that position to date:

--Derrick Brooks (Florida)
--DeShaun Thrower (Michigan)

I think we have two clear priorities for next recruiting:
1)a big defensive bruising center, who can rebound in high rate, protect the paint and bang with other teams big bodies.
2)a true playmaker who can dish out to our numerous wing players and to Warney. Someone to groom behind Tre.

I'm with iBO on this one 100%.  But since I've been following these things I don't ever remember seeing SBU offering a big-time center.  Am I wrong about this?

Re: a playmaking point guard, I would sure like to see the Seawolves reel in Paul Jorgensen.  But, I'm probably whistling in the wind on that one.

I also read today that Mike Auger has deleted SBU's offer from his remaining consideration.  Too bad!!  From what I've been reading about him, he was a blue collar, hard-nosed Brenton kind of player

Seawolves Nation thinks SB basketball is eyeing another conference for their Basketball possibly the A10. I would love to see that but, how many schools are in 3 different div1 conferences, strange....

We will also have the toughest non conference schedule SB has ever experienced and close together. This will be our year to shine. Just in time for the new Arena..
