More geographically diverse than years past. Still always wondered why they don't make more of a downstate push though.

They probably do, but kids want to play outside of NY. Just look at St. Johns.

 

 

I think that's more reflective of NY hoops in general, than it is an indictment of the location. SJU should be a powerhouse year in and out. They should dominate the NYC scene and be very competitive in the tri-state area. The lure of playing routinely in MSG should alone be enough. As someone who lives in Queens (and went to HS 5 blocks away from SJU), they do a terrible job at marketing. It's actually pathetic. I know sometimes we complain about sports marketing at UA, but you'd be shocked at how inept they are at SJU

Not sure if this was a subtle dig from our crosstown neighbors or simply a coincidence..but I do think it speaks volumes when it comes to the seemingly lighter level of commitments/signees at this poi

Personally, I think our Athletic Department has totally bungled this...and it starts from the top.   I've kept quiet long enough. Something needs to happen, and soon.

That's a dead-ringer for academic troubles...

I'm not sure who we can get out of these lists but we're recruiting in a much nicer neighborhood. A lot of guys with MAC and Horizon League offers. Eric Monroe who Phoenix mentioned is a three star recruit who might be on one of the better high school teams in the country next year. I'm not sure how you convince him to come to Albany from San Diego but that's another story.

Monroe is off the board to Yale. Guess he wanted to play for a UAlbany alum..just not AT UAlbany.

I would have liked him to come to Albany but I can understand that choice.

Shen's Kevin Huerter reportedly trimmed his list of prospective schools..which now does not include UAlbany.

 

Also..Blake Spellman committed to Northern Kentucky. Second 2016 recruit we've lost to the Norse this month.

Some kids don't want the pressure of playing at home.

LOL...or they value playing for Big10, ACC type schools. That kid was always a long shot, he's going WAY higher.

 

His remaining list... Villanova, Maryland, Notre Dame, Michigan, Creighton, Iowa, Davidson, and Indiana

Didn't know what schools were recruiting him as I can't be bothered to follow each and every kid that we are possibly looking at; too much work. It's understandable to pass on Albany for not only a powerhouse sports program at those schools but the name recognition that comes with getting an education from one of those institutions. But regardless, playing at home is not on his list of priorities or he'd still be considering Albany (even if we were dead last). It's not like we're D3/chopped liver.

Jalen Tate off the board to..you guessed it..Northern Kentucky.

Eventually Northern Kentucky will have to run out of scholarships.

Will Tavares committed to Fordham. Maybe someone forgot to tell him Brown during down that gig and is still at UAlbany?

 

It's the A10 but Fordham hasn't won in a while. They just fired Tom Pecora who did a nice job when he was at Hofstra but couldn't win at Fordham. I'm not sure who can.
