Apparently a high school junior from the Washington DC area visited last weekend. He allegedly is also being recruited by both Georgetown and Maryland. Does anyone know who he is? I also was told he won't commit until after the AAU season.

I have been advised that he is Jelani Williams, a 6' 4" combo guard from Sidwell Friends, the alma mater of Jamal Lewis. From a you tube tape, he seems to be rather thin with long arms. He has a sweet stroke.

Maxpreps has him as a 2* with interest from usual suspects, no mention of Maryland or GT which is why he probably wants to wait until after AAU season

Makes sense.

I did catch a bit of Ray Jerome's game. He actually is Cheshire Academy's primary ball handler. I was thinking he was strictly a shooting guard type. He might be a player.

Verbal Commits also lists Eddie Scott, a 6'5 forward from DC Gonzaga as having Penn recruiting interest. 2.5 stars but no mention of Georgetown or Maryland interest.

There appeared to be more than one recruit at the Palestra during last Friday night's Cornell game.

I don't know where LeRoy, IL is (I think it's maybe near DeKalb or Rockford or possibly even closer to Galena) and this is one of the oddest lists of offers I've ever seen.

I am completely over late offers who Scout Twitter refers to like "Penn just got an under-the-radar steal".

They never ever turn out well, they are complete wastes of time and show that the coach of our program is trying to shine up a turd. They are utterly pointless and I hate them and I'm completely done getting fooled by these types of recruits.






That said this guy looks like a late bloomer and I'm intrigued.

If Krystowiak wants him, I want him in a Penn uniform.

Leroy is a small town located between Champaign and Peoria. This school is not playing at a very high level of bb in Illinois because of its size; HOWEVER, this young man can definitely stick it. Best guess is he's gotten noticed as a result of his team doing well at states.

See I wasn't even in the right part of the state.

1A is a very, very low level of basketball. I doubt it produces more than a few Division I recruits a year. He does have AAU experience, though. With the sort of attention he's getting lately there's got to be something to him.

The team they are going up against tonight, Newark, is a perennial powerhouse squad at the 1A level.

They beat one of the Chicago Jewish high schools a couple of years ago--a round away from the Illinois High School Association having to change the starting date and times from a Final Four contest in Champaign due to the Sabbath. Newark actually won the 1A state title a few years ago.

In truth, the way Illinois does it these divisions are more competitive than in most other states since they include all public, private and parochial schools within the same class size. When you get to the supersectional rounds, they are all good squads no matter if it's 1A, 3A, 5A or whatever.

Look, I hope the kid chooses to come to Penn but you simply cannot compare the competition level at 1A and 4A. You just can't.

Overall, no question. There's no question that this kid is not facing good competition on a regular basis. But when you get to the top teams, I think it's a bit of a different story.

That's why tonight should be very interesting. Newark I have no doubt would compare favorably against the vast majority of 2A and 3A teams, and probably a bunch of 4A schools as well.

I like the elevation on his jumper. It's a good starting point and difficult to teach/change at this point in a kid's development.

Agreed and he clearly is more than a standstill shooter independent of the level of competition. He shoots off the dribble almost as well as Anna Ross

quakes up 6 at the half

Well, he's now officially legit as LeRoy beat Newark 58-50 tonight.

Chastain scored 34 (14 for 17), including 4 for 6 from three point land, and added 12 rebounds.

Newark was 28-2 heading into this contest.

Probably doesn't help us for him to keep blowing up...
