I just watched the video, and it looks like he was playing against a bunch of undersized guys. Anyway, 17 blocks in one game is unbelievable!

BRW should like this one. A new offer to Greg Bowie II 6-3 SG (TX) from San Antonio's Athlos Leadership Academy. Has offers from San Diego, Buffalo, Duquesne, UTEP, FGCU, LA Tech, UTSA, Texas State, etc. Athlos is a charter school that is not loved by some of the local coaches.


Ranked #1 in San Antonio area by Alamocityhoops.com: https://alamocityhoops.wordpress.com/2016/03/11/20...

Ranked #12 in Texas by Texashoops.com: https://rivals.yahoo.com/texashoops/basketball /rec...

Bowie averaged 20 ppg and 5 rpg according to Maxpreps.

Recruits with BU offers-- Did any of these recruits attend our Prospects Camp last month?
In the past, we have gotten insider info on guys like Nate Sestina who attended the camp at Bucknell. I think Cam Ayers attended the camp before he committed. This year, we have heard nothing about who shined or who surprised.

If we don't have any scoop on the Camp attendees, who are the guys at the top of our list? Sounds like we are really intent on adding some size like 6-9 or taller with the recent offers.

I have no info whatsoever on the camp or who are the top priorities. However, just looking at the returnees in 2017-18 - when the current recruits will be frosh - makes it pretty clear that at least one big man is needed.

2017-18:

Center - Foulland 6-9 (SR)
PF's - Thomas 6-7 (SR) , Sestina 6-8 (JR), Moore 6-8 (SO)
SF/Wings - Jones 6-4 (JR), Robertson 6-5 (SO)
SG's - O'Reilly 6-3 (JR), Toomer 6-3 (SO)
CG - Mackenzie 6-1 (JR)
PG - Brown 5-11 (SR)

Also need to add a PG.

Thanks, 137. My understanding from a source at BU is that Sestina got a redshirt year approved and will be, in effect, a first year player next year. So Big Country will be just a soph when the new recruits are freshmen.

That is good news for Bison followers.

I've heard something to that effect also. It's good news, but also a long time away. In any event, the team still has a definite need for a true center.

Funny...I've never even heard of it! The website says San Antonio location "opens in fall 2014."

New offer to Matt Beachler 6-4 SG (MI). Has offers from LU, AU, VCU, DePaul, Cornell, Brown, CMU, Kent State, NIU, Detroit, Green Bay, RMU, etc.


Ranked 10th in the Michigan 2017 class by Bankhoops.com: http://bankhoops.com/class-of-2017-michiga ns-top-2...

(Hass, btw, ended up #4 in Michigan in their final ranking for his class, but I'm not sure where he ranked prior to his senior year.)

Article from last fall: http://highschoolsports.mlive.com/news/article/-10...

Would love to hear an opinion from GreatLakesState.

1) what does the st. Pete Area reference mean wrt Wilson?

2) Kyle Copeland visited in June 2015, subsequently either reclassified to 2017 or is doing a pg year. if iirc, HC70 reported on their board that his aau contact said we had offered him. no evidence of offer or even interest that i can find in the last year on the net. anyway, i think he probably out to be listed as a player of interest on our list

1. Wilson reference is in error. Was supposed to apply to AJ Ford.

2. HC70's "AAU contact" is widely believed to be fictitious, so any reports from his imaginary friend are apt to be in error. In any event, I'll add him to the 2017 list. It appears he will be doing a PG year at Phillips Exeter. Now has offers from AU, HC, Quinnipiac, and Stetson. Had offers prior to last year from Mt. St. Mary's, High Point, and St. Francis. Those offers may still be in place.

New offer:

Carter Collins 6-1 PG (NC) from Chapel Hill. Has offers from Boston U, William and Mary, Elon, Furman, Dartmouth, Columbia, Wofford, Murray State, Kennesaw, etc.

Ranked 16th in North Carolina by Phenom Hoops.


Article: http://www.phenomhoopreport.com/news_article/show/... . Interesting that he has played for the same club team since he was five years old.

New offer:

Jay Estimé 6-5 SG (GA) - Duluth H.S. Duluth is a 6A (largest) school in the Atlanta area. In maxpreps computer rankings, they were a little better than Toomer's Grady team. Atlantabison, any reports?

Coach of his AAU team reports he has offers from FGCU and NJIT. He made recent unofficial visits to Penn and William and Mary.

A new 2018 offer:

Richard Njoku 6-7 PF (D.C.) from St. John's College H.S. Also has an offer from Binghamton.


Interestingly, his HS coach is Sean McAloon, who was a Bison assistant for two years under PF. He left Bucknell to coach/teach HS at the same time Don Friday left BU to become head coach at Lycoming. The two of them were replaced by Nathan Davis and Mark Prosser. The other assistant at that time was Bryan Goodman, who is now an assistant at Binghamton, where Njoku got his other offer.

Further, McAloon is a graduate of Randolph-Macon, playing two of his four years alongside Nathan Davis. Davis also coached McAloon for one year when he was a graduate assistant at RMC.

  • Bison137 Said:

- Cole, RJ 5-11 PG ( NJ ) BUCKNELL OFFER 4/20/16 ; LC, Loyola, Boston U, Penn, Brown, RMU, Wagner, Monmouth, LIU, etc ; St. Anthony's






From Adam Zagoria on twitter today: "St. Anthony's G RJ Cole told me Monmouth, Boston U and Howard working hardest right now. Will be top returning G at St. Ant's."


Hopefully the Bison have a few other PG's where they are in better position.
