2017 Recruit

I'm not happy about it but I certainly don't think the sky is falling. Unless it convinces Jarrod to look elsewhere it's just an obstacle he'll have to overcome. With everything I've heard about the type of kid he is (my buddy had a long convo with his coach last month) I'm not overly concerned.

The injury will have no impact on his decision. Kid is playing at a really high level....saw the article but it failed to mention the new offer i understand he will chose if Penn is not an option. It's also my understanding that if Penn indeed is sn option that is where he will go

Nice write up in Washington Post on Jelani: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/recruiting-ins...

Sounds like a great kid and very motivated. Here's to hoping he has a quick recovery. As you can see from his stats year to date, a very dynamic player.

bonus: some talk on Carmody in 2018 batch of prospects.

"will choose between Pennsylvania and Princeton" makes me throw up a little every time.

yes I read what NYCHOOPS said but if/when pennhoops posts Simmons' commitment to Princeton, I just can't even.

i've just been hurt too many times but i'm not here to make friends. i hope simmons is here for the right reasons but if Princeton is the type of college he likes, then maybe he shouldn't even be here.





think maybe i've watched too much of the bachelor.

Yeah... No...

In a different article there was this:

"Simmons, who's narrowed his college choices to Penn, Princeton, Temple and San Diego."

This is the first time I've seen San Diego mentioned (Temple is out of scholarships as far as I know).

I'll show myself out.

And then shove my head in the oven.

You know how they say you can't teach height?

Well, you can't teach weather, either.

Jarrod Simmons was at the Palestra last night. With Princeton playing just up the road and Simmons presumably driving over from Pittsburgh, I take that as a pretty good sign.

I guess the question would be whether he went to Princeton last night.

FWIW, Donahue was at the Mars-Moon game described above:

Princeton Board reporting Simmons to Penn.
Confirmation?

If Mike James starts a Simmons thread in CAPS on the Penn board, that's good enough for me.

Jeff2sf: No offense, but you seem to have a serious image problem. What's with all the nastiness? The Ps often draw from the same well. I won't make the obvious suggestion. So why the chip on your shoulder?

Don't say "Chip." That'll just set him off.

LOL.

Getting back to Simmons - I watched quite a few game clips of him while we were recruiting him. He looks really, really good and is playing against good opposition.
