We've made an offer to 2021 G/F Daniel Nixon, who's finishing up his ninth grade year at Eaglebrook School in Massachusetts. Projected as a high major according to Future 150.

I read that Bryant offered Zion Cruz, a 2022 from NY. In other news this weekend, my son both learned how to ride a two-wheel bike and declared for the NBA draft.

It is crazy   how schools look to 9th graders and 10th graders as future prospects .  But if you miss one and he turns  out to be the next Jordan or Le Bron  who knows.

Worth noting: Zed Key from Brentwood has been picking up steam. We offered him, but he's since been offered by higher-end programs like Cincinnati, Saint Louis, UMass and today Pikiell/Rutgers.

My first instincts would be SB can forget about recruiting any kid from Brentwood, considering Almonacy kept the bench warm since day one stepping foot on campus...

Your instincts are most likely right.
Zed will be a an AAC/Big east recruit or a tier under at worst.

From Pat Lawless:

“Dave Olaniyi, a class of 2022 guard from Newark Eastside (NJ), just picked up an offer from Stony Brook.”

Sight unseen, sign me up.

I thought it was premature to start a 2024 thread, but we should lock this kid up now. He’s a 7’ 12 year old:

How old a Seawolf am I? I followed them during their Final 4 DIII hoops run in 1977-78 (they were called the Patriots then)

So, I'm hoping one of you well-connected geniuses from this board can help me understand something.  As I see it, there will be no (count them-NONE) seniors on this year's team.  Nevertheless, according to VerbalCommits.com, the Seawolves have no less than 37 offers active for the 2020 recruiting system--the latest of which was as recent as YESTERDAY!  My question is WHY???

 I understand that many of these offers go back to before Yeboah decided to leave, but even had he stayed there would have been only a single senior on the team, and many of the offers were not even for Akwasi's position.  So can any of you clue me in as to why we are still offering additional recruits?

Answer is simple. With transfers (grad and others) at an all-time high, teams need to protect themselves. Also, from what I understand, schollys offered are not a guarantee for 4 years. Hence, guys that are not living up to expectations, can effectively be “cut” during their college tenure.

Specifically, we run the risk of losing Garcia to grad transfer next year (a la Yeboah), and not sure if Foreman, who had to sit 1 year prior to transferring to SBU, can or will consider grad transfer next year.  Also, did anyone think Long or Moor would be transferring this year? Both would have seen decent minutes this upcoming year.

Bottom line, better to stay active with recruiting, rather than remaining dormant, and caught with your pants down.

At some point you have to ask yourself why everybody is heading for the exits and wanting to leave the program. That will need to be addressed. There's more to it than just the coach leaving. I can't blame a kid too much for taking a grad transfer shot at a P5 school after getting his degree at SBU, but when you've got kids leaving to play for D2 schools, something is clearly wrong.
