Bison Recruits 2017

Tough thing to do with the basketball season ending in early March, a month after the baseball season starts and 2+ months after the pitchers have been throwing. Also hard to fully participate in fall ball in baseball with basketball workouts starting in October. But Ryan Ebner did it for a year, as a pitcher and a hoops PF/C, before fully committing to baseball. If he had thought he would get a lot of minutes going forward in hoops, he might have continued with both - but the arrival of Muscala and Willman likely convinced him his future was in baseball, where he became a very good pitcher.

JC Show had talked about wanting to stick around for another semester to play football. As many recall, he was first team all-state (large school class) for two years - at two different positions. And Starkey competed in track his final year. But I can't remember anyone since Aceto, other than Ebner for one year, who did it in baseball. Way back when, when basketball ended earlier and baseball started later, a few Bison baseball stars were also hoops starters, e.g. Vic Cegles and Chris Riley.

Some recent Bison big men also played baseball in HS: Oberfeld, Sestina, and Klebon to name three.

Mike Anders dropped basketball to focus on baseball after playing one season i believe.

interesting aspect wrt Bruninga is that two of the three schools he has scheduled official visits with, UNI and Loyola, do not have baseball teams.

fwiw, and that might not be a lot,

my reading of the tea leaves says we recently got our final commit. unfortunately, the tea leaves don't give up a name, so someone pretty far off the radar, although could be a name we have heard e.g. Porter Anderson, but just as likely someone completely unknown. guess we'll see in a few weeks when loi's get signed.

Apparently, it's tea.

  • Bison137 Said:
Staff trying to find that elusive center. A Bison coach was at a HS game in Arkansas looking at 6-8 PF/C Porter Anderson. Judging by his highlight video, he can block shots and rebound - but looks like he has limited offensive skills.

https://twitter.com/ARBballRankings/statu s/8088564...







With KenZ bringing up the name of the apparently unsigned Porter Anderson, I googled him again. Although Hudl and Maxpreps list him at 6-8 240 lbs, a recent article on him being named to his All-Area team calls him 6-6. If that is an accurate height, then that would be a problem for a team seeking a center or big PF.

With no public evidence of continued recruiting, is it possible that a European or transfer has entered the picture? Total speculation.

Strickley a rumor of a center from Canada. I was told of that a couple weeks ago.

Btw the spring signing period begins April 12th - this coming Wednesday - so we may not have to wait long if it is a done deal. However the signing period runs five weeks, and players are also free to commit all the way through the summer - just without signing a letter of intent.

Second the motion for some beef under the boards. Even a Willman type, who could more than hold their own in Patriot League games, had issues with non-conference big bodies. Perhaps the new transfer is the answer.

  • Bison137 Said:
Offer to Malik Osborne 6-8 210 lb PF (IL) from Don Bosco HS in the Chicago suburbs.

Has offers from Oregon State, William & Mary, Rice, Drexel, East Carolina, Milwaukee, Texas State, and UMKC. He only had one offer, UMKC, before late February. And seven of the offers have come in the last week.




Osborne ended up committing to Rice. Their new coach, Scott Pera, was the other outside finalist for the Bison job. He took over for Flannery disciple Mike Roades, who is the new coach at VCU.

  • Bison137 Said:
From Adam Finkelstein: "ODU, Davidson, UMass, Bucknell, & Boston U among the schools that have reached out about Virginia transfer Jarred Reuter."


Reuter is a 6-8 PF who was rated three stars by all of the recruiting services. He averaged about 15 mpg for Virginia the first half of the season, but saw his minutes fall the second half. Had offers out of HS from at least 10 power conference teams such as Indiana, Florida, Iowa, UConn, etc.


https://twitter.com/AdamFinkelstein/statu s/8449452...





Reuter ends up at GMU. DP has done well with the three scholarships that were freed up when three sophs were convinced they needed to transfer. In addition to Reuter, another late addition is a good PF, Greg Calixte.
