He had offers from Texas, Pitt, Ga. Tech before starting to lean Ivy so it's not like the influence is new.

of course you're right but each day that he doesn't announce/each day that he doesn't get the score and another perfectly fine institution of higher learning comes along with a schollie, it makes it that much less likely he'd come here and/or want to sit for a test where he already has a perfectly fine score that will get him in to perfectly fine schools. And he'd be so perfect for what we need.

I stand by both my argle's

In some bad news, I just saw on Twitter that Williams has apparently torn his ACL in practice so definitely a serious knee injury. Recovery time for that is typically about a year, right? Here's to hoping he makes a speedy recovery (and real shame he is going to miss his senior year as he was playing very well by all accounts).

I think we will know soon. Just a hunch not based on any fact.

Sigh...I had been checking on updates every day but the worst is confirmed...Guess it makes Antonio's return even more important.

As for Jarrod, is it new that we're still competing with Princeton for him?

Yeah... really feel bad for Jelani, but it seems like ACL recoveries continue to speed up and most folks get back to 100%.

Jeff - it is obviously terrible news so not taken lightly but it was a quick post while I was on the go. Next time I'll find a gif of people screaming and link to it for you if that helps.

I don't think this is going to make you feel any better, but it also looks like Eddie Scott missed his last game with a wrist injury... but I'm sure much less serious.

Now is when we need some really positive news on Simmons...

also, just to REALLY gloom it up, i get that people come back more quickly, but penn's most recent two case studies in Brooks and PLP make me feel like this is a disaster. Never saw them pre injury of course, but I was told these were high major players we got due to the injuries. They sure didn't play like high major players and before anyone says, yes, I get Jerome maybe doesn't get the most out of everyone but you'd expect a certain amount of athleticism from "high major" players that I don't think was evident with either.

ACL's generally are about an 8 month recovery for full go athletics, though that can vary from 6 months to 10 months depending on the individual. This shouldn't slow Jelani down from participating in full workouts next september.

Coming back stronger from an ACL injury requires an impressive work ethic, so while I can't speak for PLP, I can speak to what I've heard about Brooks and let's just say I wouldn't let that experience cause any additional apprehension. Didn't Henry get hurt while he was developing, not after his recruiting was finished? From all accounts the skills are there, so now it's just recovery.

I think at a minimum there is some uncertainty added to the equation for the recruiting class as a result of the injury.

Haha, yes that gif is perfect and yes this sucks (most of all for Jelani so I'm rooting for him). Totally get you were joking and if I would have found one to share also.
