2018 Recruiting
« on: August 03, 2016, 10:43:36 pm »
Is Jordan Walker the little brother of Ahmad? I think I remember seeing instagram videos of him working out with Ahmad in Pritchard when he was still in junior high. Looks like he already has a handful of offers as a rising junior. Hope we land him.

According to Pat Lawless, 2018s Samba Diallo, Charles Pride, Frankie Policelli and Savion Lewis have made unofficial visits in the last few days, and per Adam Zagoria of SNY, JB made an offer to Pride. Here's some video on him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guvIFD2bwSU

Just for the record, SBU had already also made offers to both Diallo and Policelli.  I haven't seen any indication that Lewis has been offered yet, but he looks like a terrific prospect, as well.

In general, from what I've seen, Coach B. has been very aggressive in his recruiting to date, and has made some offers to outstanding talents for '17, '18 and '19 already.  The question will be, is he able to get any of them to come to SBU.  For example, Ohio State has already offered at least 3 of the same recruits that Coach Boals is pursuing.  If he can pick off one or two who are also in the sites of higher level conferences he will have done excellently.

Ah, didn't know that about those two. I see now we have 44 offers out for the next three years per verbalcommits. Means little, of course, other than the coaching staff being aggressive.

Boals is like a contemporary version of Gene Hackman in Hoosiers.  He's seems totally Ohio hokey but I really dig his enthusiasm.  It may take awhile but the vibe is good and I think it means the program just notched up long term.

So far I'm very pleased with coach Boals and the way he seems to go about things. The big test though is the 2017 class. Lets see if he can land some solid recruits before the fall signing period.

I was just checking verbalCommits out of curiosity and wow... We have 33 open offers for 2018... That's too many, don't you all think? Does coach really know all these players well to offer them scholarship?

Figured I would get this thread started. This is huge class for Stony Brook as the team currently has 6 Juniors on the roster they'll be replacing these guys. That said the coaching staff has really hit the ground running with a reported 34 offers out according to verbal commits (http://verbalcommits.com/schools/stony-brook).

Most recently the offered Brandon Stone and I really hope we land this kid.

I can't believe he doesn't already have a slew of high major offers.

  Now that's what we need. I'm sure he will grow a bit between now and when he graduates .  Sign him as early as possible.

I agree that Coach B. has certainly been aggressive with offers for this class.  The good news is that many of the kids that he's going after appear to be a step up from what SBU has pursued in the past (with rare exceptions, of course).  On the other hand, the quality of these players makes it a lower probability for the Seawolves to actually end up with them.  This kid Brandon Stone is a good example.

Yes, he would be an outstanding get.  But, the likelihood is low.  While he has no major conference offers to date, he has already expressed desires to perhaps play for West Virginia or Pitt, and will be visiting both shortly.  So, maybe this explains why Boals is going after so many candidates for this class, including several excellent bigs--see Nance, Alexander, Forrester.  He probably figures that all he needs are one or two unexpected terrific hits across all positions (a la Warney).

Yeah this is why I like that Boals seems to be casting a wide net. The more recruits you talk to and offer, the more likely you'll find a kid that isn't a conference snob and likes the idea of being a big fish in a small pond.
