Today is the first day rising juniors can hear from schools and our coaches didn't waste any time. Interest in D'Andre Vilmar 6-2 PG out of Roman Catholic in Philly. Also reported that Penn contacted him this morning as well

Usually pretty hard to tell who our staff likes the most during the recruiting season but reaching out this early could be a pretty good indicator

Two more names:

1. Nick Alikakos 6-7 SF/PF from Episcopal Academy in the Philly area. He heard from ten schools today.

2. Sam Iorio 6-6 SF from Parkland in Allentown. Iorio has offers from Boston U, Lafayette, and one other school (maybe Penn).

All three names that popped up today are from Southeastern PA. With the ties that Griffin and Ayers have to that area - plus MOBO Joe Meehan - we may see a lot more names from that area as time goes by.

I see that the blurb on Gillespie specifically says that John Griffin is the recruiter. Not a surprise.

Kobe Magee 5-11 CG from San Antonio.

Icarnate Word was another local program reaching out to Kobe Magee today. A long list of top teams: Texas Tech, Rice, Middle Tennessee, Boise State, Tulsa, Hartford, Bucknell, SFA, Sam Houston State and Vanderbilt all made contact today with the Brandeis guard.

Magee hit about 39% on threes over his first two seasons, while shooting a lot of them. He played SG more than PG since Brandeis had another PG - but he is projected as more of a PG. May have some similarities to John Azzinaro. We will await the scouting report from BRW.

Some recruiting activity today. Might still be looking for a 2016 walk-on, but more probably directed at 2017's:

1. Blair Academy (NJ): "Thanks to Bucknell, U. Denver, Seton Hall and SMU for attending open gym today."

Blair has at least three 2017's who are D1-level players. One of them has dozens of high-level offers. The other two are:

- Matthew Turner 6-3 SG who has offers from Seton Hall, Fairfield, and Quinnipiac.
- Anthony Mack 6-5 wing who has offers from half of the MAAC, several AE schools, Colgate, four CAA's, GMU, and Texas A&M.


2. Loyola Academy (IL): "We appreciate Bucknell AC Ryan Ayers watching Open Gym today and his interest in our guys."

Probably looking at 6-2 CG Ramar Evans.

Rivals shows four players with Bucknell interest. It is not a very reliable source and I wouldn't put must stock in the schools of interest, but might as well list them:

- Jordan Horn 6-3 PG (MN) - offer from South Dakota; interest from LU, Army, and most of the upper midwest programs.
- Dedoch Chan 6-7 PF (MN) - interest from HC, Drake, UNI, etc.
- Donald Duncan 5-11 PG (MD) - interest from Harvard, Loyola, UMBC, Monmouth, Towson, etc.
- Charles O'Bannon Jr 6-5 wing (NV) - OFFER; other offers from about 25 schools, incl Kansas, Arizona, etc. 4 stars.


Also from Scout -for BRW:

- Kobe Magee 6-0 PG (TX) - offers from UTEP, UTSA, St. Francis (PA), LIU

Magee plays for Brandeis HS in San Antonio. BRW would know better than me, but I think they play in the same league as DJ MacLeay's Reagan team.

Actually, Reagan and Brandeis are in different school districts. I think Brandeis is the same district as Johnny Azzinaro's Brennan High School.

While one of the toughest skill sets to recruit, pretty obvious Bison needs some rebounding help. No accident that the two glory eras coincided with having two of the best big men to play at Lewisburg. While I know its early, get concerned when most recruits are 5'11" guards.

Big men often develop later, so the pattern always seems to be that guards are more often on the early radar. At this point in his career, i.e. prior to his junior season of H.S., Muscala had never even started a game. Nor had Foulland. We will probably see some big men added to the list before the HS season is over.

Went to see Nick Alikakos of Episcopal Academy yesterday and will send the BU staff a short report. Our sons (now at Bucknell) went to EA and I ooached Middle School basketball there so very familiar with the program and head coach. Nick is a junior who keeps getting better and is a 6-7 SF or PF prospect. EA defeated Shipley School by about 10 points and Nick had 22 points, at least 10 rebounds and 6 blocked shots.

He plays center for EA but can step out and hit 15-20 footers with no problem. Can handle the ball well for his size and could add some muscle to his frame. First team all-league last year as a soph and made the Philly Inquirer's "top returning player" list from last year. Very good foul shooter and he draws a lot of contact with his moves around the basket.

I will see him again once or twice this year. Penn Asst Coach sat right behind me in the stands.

no real news, but thoughtt i'd bump this to the top as April recruiting period opens.

i do see we will have a two day prospect camp, the a one day team shootout camp in June. glad to see those back as they at least get some prospects on campus.

will be interesting to see how much recruiting news we get this year with full staff in place from the get go. my take is that Coach Davis will continue to have a much more surgical, focused offer list rather than the larger earlier offer sheet we were accustom to with Coach Paulsen.
