This much is obvious, need to recruit some bigs for next year and beyond...

Yep, guard overload right now lol.

 

Sosinski is playing football at Kansas.

Story and rankings on Malachi de Sousa. http://www.newenglandrecruitingreport.com/news/yags-point-forward-deep-dive-into-2018-rankings?platform=hootsuite

 

 

South Kent's 6'6" wing Malachi De Sousa (#20) and Northfield-Mt Hermon's 6'6" Wingspan Big Man Chuck Hannah (#15) are two other prospects from the 2018 class that can find themselves in similar positions, depending on how long they hold off on making their college decisions. Each played a huge part in their team's success at the highest level of prep basketball last season, largely by taking pride in and perfecting their roles. But their unselfish team-first mentality disguised skillsets that are more well-rounded than they are often given credit for. With their history of production, versatility on both ends of the floor and underrated jump shots that have further improved this summer, Hannah and De Sousa could add to the list of high-major recruits from this year's class.

Malachi De Sousa verbally comitted tonight to be a Dane on Twitter. Heard he was a big target for Siena.

He was a huge target for them...they wanted him badly! This guy can really play. Will Brown right now cleaning up on the trail. This kid is really good.

Updated list. I'm assuming the last two spots will go to bigs...we're stacked on the wings/guards.

Awesome. A lot to like about this commitment. Just about every write-up describes him as "unselfish" and "high-motor." Also, from NY!

 

I've seen him described as a shooting guard and also as a small forward. I like how we've progressed from essentially playing a third guard at small forward to getting true wings. De Sousa seems like the next in that line but seemed to be even better offensively.

 

Stoked about the present and the future.

This is awesome news. Coach Brown and staff have truly "reloaded". What a phenomenal haul in 2017 and 2018. We are really looking (OF COURSE, ON PAPER) like we've got great talent and depth.

I would presume the last two scholly's will go to some bigs to support the young bigs of Conway, Lulka, and Hanks. I wouldn't be surprised to see the rides filled with Juco's for balance and game experience.

 

Siena fans are going to lose their minds with this win for UA...and also losing Moll to UVM.

 

Can't wait for both Rizzuto and De Souza to officially sign their papers and become part of the Purple Family.
