Dwayne Cohill, the 57th ranked player in the 2018 class according to ESPN, liked a tweet about our win today (see attachment). Now I think it's unlikely we actually land Cohill, but it's awesome to see Stony Brook is still on his radar despite all the high major offers he holds.

I love what the coaching staff is doing on the recruiting trail.

Anyone know anything about Samba Diallo?  4 star recruit that SBU has a scholarship offer out to and he doesn't have any offers from high-major schools.

I haven't heard of him until you mentioned. Got couple of A10 offers though.

 A 4 Star  recruit would be great in the AE . We keep going after  at high level recruits all we need is one maybe two  to  make things happen at this level . Gotta love our recruiting attitude .

Well looks like we have an offer to another 4 star recruit. Tavon Jones. Will be hard to convince him to come here, he already has Big East offer from Seton Hall.. and probably will get more major offers. But agree with you that we gotta love the recruiting attitude. Coach Boals has tweeted few times since joining Stony Brook, that recruits should find the best fit.. highest level isn't always best fit... over 1400 transfers in last 2 years!

All it will take is one 5 or 4 star kid to show up . Build a supporting cast around him and we are in good shape.  It also bodes well for the program going forward . Get one maybe second kid signs up. I like that Boals is aiming high with his recruits hopefully he lands a big fish.

Says every low major in the country. Yet the blue-chippers still don't choose 'em.

Maybe we can land an occasional high-major (local) kickback or a high school senior who wants to stay close to home, but even that is unrealistic. Long Island isn't exactly a hotbed. Nevertheless, I like that Boals is aiming high and that he found significant contributors at major programs from outside the area.

This summer will be one of the most important recruiting class.. We will have 5 people graduating next year. And Boals now have one year under his belt and now knows the AE landscape. Doesn't have to divide his attention between moving to a new place with family, getting to know the current players, finding assistant coaches, recruiting for 2017, learning about the school, facilities, opponents, scheduling etc like last summer. Looking forward to see how Boals does with his next batch of recruitment.

Coach Boals tweeted out a #Turn Up bitmoji last night: https://twitter.com/JeffBoals/status/884206342919135232

Last fall, Boals tweeted out an excited bitmoji every time a recruit gave Stony Brook a verbal commitment. It could mean anything, but keep an eye out for recruiting news.

And now this from coach Weber https://twitter.com/Coach_Weber/status/884416261316378625

"Just heard huge news for @StonyBrookMBB that has me FIRED UP!! Let's keep it rolling baby!! #WeAreSeawolves 🔴🔵🌊🐺🏀‼️‼️"

I wouldn't be surprised if they're alluding to the new assistant coach to replace coach Chapman who took a job at Northern Illinois.

We either signed a 4 or 5 star recruit  or maybe Boals hired his old boss from Ohio State  who was cut loose a few months ago.  Speculation is always fun ,

Write up on the Oladipo Skills Academy includes the following on Miles Latimer "6. Stony Brook will place Miles Latimer on the American East postseason all-first team. A tremendous addition for Jeff Boals' program, Latimer has the chance to carry the baton for the Seawolves over the next few years."
