New offer to Maka Ellis 6-5 wing from Las Vegas. Has offers from Utah State, New Mexico State, Rice, Nevada, Lehigh, Santa Clara, Columbia, Rice, and others. As a junior, he averaged 25 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 3.3 apg, and 2.1 spg. It's been a long time, I think, since the Bison had a legitimate recruit from Nevada.

Is it me or are the comparative offers to the bigs on our list coming from larger programs at a greater rate than the 1-4 positions? Could this be the Muscala and Foulland effect?

July 12th is the start of a major evaluation period. The Bison reportedly have shown interest in a few players from the NJ Force AAU team:

1. Kenny Jones 6-0 PG (Middletown, NJ) - has offers from St. Joes, Towson, Monmouth, Iona, Qpac, Stony Brook, Boston U, etc.

2. Alex Imegwu 6-6 SF (Seton Hall Prep, NJ) - offer from Lafayette.

3. Caleb Fields 6-2 PG (Wildwood Catholic, NJ) - offers from NJIT and Middle Tennessee.

4. Mike Schretter 6-8 PF/C (Ridgewood, NJ)


No indication of an offer for any of them at this point, although Jones seems to have a strong resume.

"Archbishop Wood 2018 SG Andrew Funk listing Drexel, Yale, Bucknell Quinnipiac, Penn among those showing the most love."


https://twitter.com/Joshua_Newman/status/ 885541356...

"Funk recently tripped to Quinnipiac, Bucknell and Yale. Both parents are Nova grads, which is an obvious connection for Baker Dunleavy."

A few of the players on the list above have picked up additional offers. Based on their offer lists, a couple of them appear increasingly unlikely to end up at Bucknell. Additional offers:

Riley Battin - Vandy, Colorado, GA Tech, Harvard, Yale, etc.
Ryan Davis - Drake, So. IL, Wofford
Drew Friberg - Binghamton
Aaron Nesmith - South Carolina, VA Tech, TX A&M
Zeke Richards - San Jose State
Ryan Young - Hofstra, ODU, Brown, Loyola, St. Francis



Ryan Young now has at least 28 offers, Nesmith at least 22, and Battin has at least 17.

Offer to Isaiah Kelly, a 6-7 SF from Atlanta (Pace Academy).

https://twitter.com/Isaiahkelly_/status/8 870524112...

Kelly has a number of offers from power conference schools and others: Georgia, Wisconsin, Vandy, Rutgers, Iowa State, Memphis, Cinci, Yale, Princeton, Penn, UAB, Hofstra, and FGCU.

What is interesting is that most of his offers are from over a year ago: Wisconsin July 2015, Vandy September 2015, Iowa State May 2016, Cinci June 2016, Memphis June 2016, Rutgers July 2016, Georgia August 2016, Princeton/Penn/Harvard September 2016. Note that the coaches of some of these teams (Vandy, Wisconsin, Rutgers) have changed in the past 15 months.

No idea what all of this means, but the fact that the Bison just offered him must mean that he doesn't have a strong favorite at this point. AtlantaBison, any scouting reports?

Have not seen him. Pace Academy is a tiny school that has recently really upped it athletic program. A lot of Falcon's owner Arthur Blank's money.

Hedstrom is from Hopkins H.S. just west of Minneapolis. Very strong hoops program. Would love to have another Bison center from the Twin Cities

Some who have been on this board for a decade or more will remember another Bison recruit from Hopkins - Blake Hoffarber, a 6-4 SG. Hoffarber got an ESPY for HS play of the year for making this shot, where he sent the state championship game to OT by making a 20-footer as time expired while lying on his back. Hoffarber was being recruited as part of the class that brought in Shazier, Boon, and O'Brien, but he ended up going to Minnesota.

Put another player into the unlikely category. Nesmith picked up offers recently from Vandy, Pitt, OK State, Cinci, Florida, GA Tech, Minnesota, Texas A&M, VA Tech, South Carolina, and UMass. Now has 33+ offers.
