Andrews, Ennema, Charles and Rowley are all seniors this year..so we should have 2 more scholarships left after Hank and Lulka.

Very good pick-up.

 

If you watch film on Hank and Lulka, you see nothing fancy. What you do see is: a) big strong, men; B) the ability to get down the court; c) very good footwork in the post for Lulka; d) basketball smarts (see some of the space they eat up).

 

These two guys are legit (a.k.a, clearly AE, MAAC, NEC) for our level...but frankly have a much higher ceiling.

 

Really like that we've shored up the post. Now, we need a wing and a PG (to bridge the gap for when Nichols graduates).

Not sure how NCAA works with this, but I almost think Brown should hire Hooley as a Australian recruiter.

 

I love that this pipeline is flowing. Gives the team a cool little thing.

Healy had some interest from Creighton, Texas Tech and Stanford..according to http://ausahoops.com/.

 

Using their Class of 2017 National Rankings..we will have the 11th, 17th and 18th ranked players. Also have offers out to the 2nd, 8th, 13th and 20th ranked players.

 

My guess is we'd probably be looking for a wing/big guard with the 4th scholarship?

so new recruiting strategy...4 year players from Australia, 2 years/JUCO's everyone else. If they win titles, I'm down.

Couple of things. We just got three amazing ball players. Film is film...but take some time to Google and watch these guys. They seem like great kids.

 

Cam's brother is at Santa Clara. I really wanted Cam just from watching a bunch of his film online. Very quick...seems super tough...super unselfish...and sees the court pretty well.

 

Coach Brown (and whomever was the direct contact coach) did a great job with these three.

 

You never know with any kids, but it seems like we got three typical UA guys to build on for the future: Tough, Heady, Unselfish, Solid Skill-Sets and, most importantly, character kids!!!!

Yep, we definitely need a wing. Let's just get this out of the way. Lat Mayen is not coming to Albany. Kid is a flat out super-star stud.

Brown is doing work... Lulka and Healey are punching at a higher level. Lulkas two other visits were Nevada and San Diago

We have a few fall through the cracks (Baker, Tre Green, etc.) but the majority of kids that Brown brings in as freshmen are just, first and foremost, good young men. Sounds like these three are of the Hooley/Rowley mold in terms of intangibles. Good to see.

Coach Brown tweeted that Josh Pelletier is headed to Australia to recruit. Pretty serious trip.

That's commitment. I don't know that we've done that for any other of the Aussies.

 

 

Looking like this trip might have been a pretty good investment.

When one of the kids two other visits were Nevada and San Diego..yeah, I'd say it was worth it.
