Recruiting - 2020

Recommended Posts

Are we still in the mix for Shane O’Dell from Schalmont? I just sort of discovered who he is.  His grandfather graduated HS 3 years before me and was quite possibly the best athlete ever to come out of the place (saw him play BB and FB many times) and his mother is in the Siena BB HOF. Definitely good genes! I see he’s offered.

Schalmont just sent a twitter message thanking Josh Pelletier for attending their workout today . So that must mean we are still persuing him. 

Looks like a decent player. He is 6'6, high IQ player but does not look very atheltic.  But I'll admit I dont follow him very closely. 

I would think we need an athletic big man, maybe 6'8 or taller but maybe O'Dell would be a good pick up. I have no idea.

 Looks like that pic is for the AE Championship game vs Vermont in 2006.  I guess no one can find a more current one where SEFCU looks like a solid looking mid-major arena with SRO, lol.

It's one of the best ones around. A company from CT made it into one of those panorama posters a few years ago. LadyDP got one framed for me a few years ago and it hangs upstairs in our house.  I'd like a Peter Hooley "the shot" poster too.

A little surprised we're offering another guard. I thought we'd go for a guard and two bigs in next year's class.

At this level you have to go after the best possible athletes regardless of position. We never know who is going to transfer, who is going to get hurt, who is going to graduate early and leave....

Saw on Twitter that Will Amica signed. PG of the future!

Press release out today. Some quotes from Coach Brown:

Quote

He has the unique ability to make his teammates better but also put up big numbers on the offensive end.  What I love about Will is that he is a winner.  Will was the best player and MVP on a state championship team as a junior in the largest classification that New York State has to offer. 

Since they've announced it, I have to think Will Amica is our only recruit for the fall signing period. We'll have two more scholarships to fill in the spring.

We offered Shane O'Dell a while ago and although he is not playing against the best competition,  he is still playing very well. Averaging 26 ppg, 16 rebounds, and 4 blocks a game. He does not have a ton of offers and at 6'6 does not fill am immediate need. 

However he would appear to be a good get and yet he remains uncommitted.  I'm guessing he wants to play elsewhere,  however I think he would be the kind of player will brown likes.
