"Blair '18, Don Bosco '17 Chris Lovisolo will do an unofficial visit to Bucknell on Monday."

Lovisolo is a 6-9 PF/C. Appears to be more of a finesse player. Didn't get any D1 scholarship offers this past year and is now going to Blair Academy (NJ) for a post-grad.

Appears to be nice player but particularly if we continue to play 4-5 top D1 teams a year, would love to see a big banger. Maybe some of this year's subs can get more aggressive and try to play this role.

Not sure why more of the recruiting buzz doesn't net it out regarding jobs. If you look at the national surveys, Bucknell does very well regarding job attainment, career growth and average income. I do believe that the losing record each year against so many top D1 teams hurts. 1-2 games a year against a North Carolina type school an asset. 4-5 loses at the start of every year a liability.

  • Bison137 Said:
From Combine Academy, a sports development program:

"NCAA D1 Bucknell University continuing to show strong interest in 7-0 Center Yarden Willis."

Willis is a 7-0 Israeli who attends the Weber School, a Jewish school in Atlanta. He put up pretty good stats last year - but it looks like his competition was very weak. I assume he is associated with Combine Academy, so the report may not be unbiased. Looks like he would be a project, albeit a very tall one, and very possibly a recruited walk-on - assuming there is real interest.





Another tweet from Willis' coach:

"7-0 Center with good hands & good feet...
Yarden Willis continuing to improve every single day he is here. Fundamentally sound, turns over either shoulder, range to 15 feet. Penn State & Bucknell showing strong interest in him for a reason!"



May or may not be accurate.
