Just wondering - does the recruiting class seem to be done? I recall some mentioning that there were a few more names they'd heard about. I hadn't heard if Simmons filled the last spot or if they signed on to other schools.

I don't have specific knowledge to Penn, but there are definitely more than a few Ivy targets out there that I expect to go Ivy and possibly be productive players as freshmen. So, if Penn still has slots, there are players out there to be had.

At the very least I'd expect them to need an AI booster, but I don't know what kind of latitude the program was given - maybe they don't need to worry about averaging this year.

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.

Per twitter, Matt Chastain is transferring from Loyola after just one year, a medical redshirt year at that. 4 years to play 4. Go get him Penn!

LeRoy is nowhere near Waukegan and its demographics are drastically different to boot

And Loyola Academy in Waukegan is a high school where Loyola University in Chicago is where Calhoun was AD prior to Penn. Calhoun hired the current Basketball Coach, Porter Moser.

But yes, Leroy Illinois is very different than the City of Chicago so I suspect, if its a factor, Penn wouldn't be better in that regard (being in a city environment)

Corkie Calhoun was from Waukegan and Loyola Academy is in Wilmette, not in Waukegan. This sounding like an Abbott and Costello bit.

Yeah I like both kinds of music too.

Joliet is clear on the other side of Chicago from Wilmette and Waukegan.

By the way, you have to go through Skokie to get from Loyola Academy to Loyola University.

There used to be a focus group facility in Skokie that I used a lot, but it closed.

You'd think that should be the case.

At the risk of disclosing my age, I actually played in the original Suburban League which included both Waukegan and Niles. Can you name the other 6?

No, although US-41 (which LSD is part of) does.

Evanston, New Trier, Highland Park, Maine [whatever], another New Trier... Deerfield? (my geography gets dangerously fuzzy north of Lake-Cook Rd).

Sorry Hoops, there were no N,W,E or W's in those days. Believe it or not, it was Waukegan, Highland Park, New Trier, Niles, Evanston, Oak Park, Morton and Proviso.
