I would love to see SB sign a 6'10" PF who can control the post. Another Warney but taller....

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."

The Stony Brook elite camp is this Saturday. Does anyone know how it works? Is it invite only to Stony Brook recruits?

So quiet in the recruiting front. Any more updates on 2018 recruitment? I think still 3 more spots left.

4 scholarships left still, but I agree that it's been quiet lately. I'm hoping they'll have some recruits on campus this weekend for the elite camp.

Hard to know who the staff is focusing on but I'm hoping they can land Souleymane Koureissi. He visited the campus back in the spring, but has since picked up a slew of new offers.

We could use a big guy  in the range of 6'8 or taller that can shoot and rebound.  We are loaded with guards  and small forwards . Time for at least  1 big kid  who can play to sign up.

There are a good many that have been offered for 2018 (I count 12 currently).  The big men are always in high demand, as there are fewer available.  The Seawolves certainly have some very good candidates, but are facing serious competition to land them.  I'll also be looking forward to seeing how the current new freshman (Anthony Ochefu) pans out.

Seems like we just beat out UMass for a 7 ft big man. Welcome Alex Christie.

No idea how good he is (then again, the America East doesn't really get good seven footers), but we could use some height.

A big man is always a great get!! Glad he chose to come here. As mentioned we could use the size and I'm sure Boals will be able to develop him.

Alex Christie played his last year at this elite college basketball prep school called (MacDuffie pre school) and they apparently were very high on him coming in. He is huge. 7'0" 260 pounds. He looks strong and they say he is a very good runner and jumper .

big news and looking forward to seeing him.  i have noticed that we are thin on bigs coming into the program over the next few classes.
There are 29,413,039 corporations in America; but only one Chairman of the Board.

It's hard to judge Christie's capabilities due to the lack of video available, but it certainly sounds like his upside should be substantial.  He will probably be a project that Coach B. will take on with relish.  Given the unknowns with this, and in light of the recent disappointing experience with Alonzo Campbell, I'd still like to see the Seawolves nail down another big man for '18.  There are still 3 open roster spots for next season, and we have offers out to a number of impressive PFs.  But, of course, the competition for them is fierce.

Welcome aboard Alex!
