Thanks.  What were Jameel and Carson rated at - do you recall?

One kid to keep an eye for is Jacob Toppin. According to Zagoria, he's grown 4 inches since his senior year at Ossining. Of note, his brother, Obi Toppin, was a similar late bloomer who is having a terrific freshmen season on a really solid Dayton team. As far as i can tell we're to only ones that have offered him so far. Might be a major steal

Just read on Long Island Lutheran's Twitter feed that '19 SG Tyler Stephenson-Moore has committed to the Seawolves.  I haven't see his detailed career stats, but from everything I've read he should be an excellent get for Coach B.  Also a big plus that he is a local kid, to spur fan interest.

Reading on twitter that he is a wing player, shooting guard, smooth long distance shooter and rebounds well for a guard. 3pt shooting is always a plus.

So is that is for 2019? That was the last spot I am guessing.

Congrats to Tyler and SBU getting a local kid. 

Wasn't that the last scholly available though for 2019?  Aren't we in need of a PG type, with Cornish graduating and Makale being a SG?  McKenzie and who else at the point?

These are my thoughts exactly. We need a point guard badly and if he gets the last scholarship, it'll be awfully hard to attract a transfer or otherwise get a true PG. I suspect we'll wind up shuffling some guys around into the PG position as well as cutting one or two guys.

Main takeaway is that hes a shooter.

To answer your question, #11 is out of our league. 4-star 2020 grad.

My guess is the coaching staff see Foreman as a pg

LuHi is loaded. In addition to #11 who we offered a couple years ago, #21 is Zed Key formerly from Brentwood who has a slew of high major offers.

We also have offers out to #5 Jalen Celestine, a 2020 SG and #15 Drissa Traore, a 2021 PF.

Lest we forget that Ceesay's on the roster too. Can we make do with McKenzie, Ceesay and some combo of Long, Foreman and Latimer in a pinch? It's too bad we haven't seen much of Ceesay. I'd like to see with my own eyes what he brings to the table.

The question remains if Yeboah decides to stay or explore other options, thus opening up another spot. With Foreman, Garcia, Olaniyi, Latimer, Moor, etc, I think we have plenty of scoring if Yeboah departs, but his work on the glass is underrated. I'd look for a solid 3/4 if it came to that.

Ceesay can't be high in the pecking order if they didn't redshirt him this year.  He does lead the team though, I believe, in PPM, with his late offensive explosion vs. Binghamton :)

I don't feel that Long or Latimer are adept enough to handle the ball at the point, except in a pinch (add Elijah to that emergency team).  Foreman played the point for a few games in college as you made me point out recently, so maybe he's the plan, who knows.  And yes, if Akwasi leaves, you can't trade him in for a PG.  Lots of rebounds to make up if that happens. I'm ambivalent toward McKenzie at the point - but he does slow down the pace of the team when he's in there, and he's certainly not a scorer.  Still think we need someone with superior ball handling and passing skills to either replace Cornish or backup McKenzie moving forward.

The first video (havent watched the 2nd one yet) was extremely enjoyable to watch!  Stony Brook could learn a lot watching this high school bb game.
