The dunk at about the 2:15 mark is my favorite. Caught the ball on one side, collected himself, and dunked it on the other side to avoid the defender. I saw finishes with both hands in there. I would like to see maybe ONE jump shot, even if it is a six footer. He did not look that tall in the video.

It looks like Njoku is more of a PF than a C. He is "only" 6'-6" but has a 6'-9.25" wingspan. At 220#, I can see why he was described as "physically imposing".

All these kids are still growing as Juniors heading to Senior year. With a 6'9 wingspan I would imagine 6'9 would be a realistic height for him to end up at.

If that's the totality of his shot selection I think we should all chip in and send him a Ed O'Bannon type Fedex letter. We can post from BRW's home address for plausible deniability...just sayin'

Or maybe a partly-open package with $100 bills falling out, shipped from the home address of Brett Reed.

"Sierra Vista senior wing Maka Ellis will announce his college commitment Wednesday, according to a tweet from his father.

Ellis averaged 25 points for the Mountain Lions last season and had a strong summer with Vegas Elite’s 17U team alongside UNLV commit and Clark guard Trey Woodbury and Bishop Gorman three-star forward Jamal Bey.

The 6-foot-5 inch Ellis holds offers from multiple Ivy League schools, including Columbia, Cornell and Pennsylvania. Nevada, Santa Clara, Lehigh and Bucknell have also offered."

Kai Toews committed to UNCW. Pretty sure his Bucknell offer was off the table after the Funk commitment.

New offer to 6-9 PF/C Tre Mitchell from South Carolina, who recently transferred to CT's Woodstock Academy. He also has offers from Kansas State, UMass, Penn State, Bowling Green, App. State, Mount St. Mary's, NJIT, RMU, CCSU, Canisius, and Stony Brook. The offers from Kansas State and UMass are both recent. His twitter page still has his first offer, from Mount St. Mary's, pinned at the top.

Offer to Caleb Catto, a 6-5 wing from Fort Myers FL. Has offers from William & Mary, Vermont, Furman, Mercer, Youngstown State, North Florida, FGCU, Winthrop, etc.

Catto committed to Florida Gold Coast. Has been apparent for awhile that the Bison were not in the running.

If so, Njoku is a very good signing for Navy. He seems a bit more athletic than many of their bigger players.

I think that Lehigh's staff recruits well. If they had a better facility that was closer to the main part of campus, I think that they would get much more student support. In turn, they would be an even better team.

I’m becoming concerned that we are not getting quality commitments at the zenith of our performance.

I am very concerned as well! I follow verbal commits pretty closely and Bucknell is down to only 2 offers on that site and it's not real likely either will commit to the Bison. I said this before and going to say it again Bucknell misses Ryan Ayers as a recruiter and I feel you need a former post player on your coaching staff to help with recruiting. I am pretty sure Dom Hoffman would have liked to be part of the coaching staff. I just hope the coaches don't just hand out offers to players that will not help the team in the future.

Not having a tall assistant could be an issue. But the Bison did not have any former post players on staff when they recruited McNaughton, Muscala, or Foulland - so it is not necessarily an issue. And they didn't have any former post players on the coaching staff last year when Nana showed a lot of improvement. They also didn't have a former post player on staff during any of Muscala's developmental years.

Having said that, I too am concerned about the way recruiting is going. Looks like there is one player still on the radar - and hopefully a couple mystery recruits. Like you, I don't want to see scholarships go to any marginal players. As was the case last year, they may have to carry a scholarship over to the spring - or maybe even hold onto one and look for a spring transfer.
