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.

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).
