One big question is always what are the positions of need. I think center is the clear priority, followed by an athletic wing, and then a PG (or CG). Thoughts?



Center has to be the top priority. Don't think we are going to be getting a commitment from one of the top available (Battin or Young) but I'm hoping we are still in the running for some of the Midwestern guys (recent offers Hedstrom and Heiman along with Sotos HS teammate Davis). I'd love to be wrong but Paul Newman is not a long term answer for us at the center position so it's pretty crucial to land one in this class. Possible early playing time could be a selling point



Sure enough, Riley Battin named his top 6 and Bucknell did not make the list.

Davidson was the only mid major to make the cut

For those who are curious, his top six are Vandy, Clemson, Utah, Ohio St,, Colorado, and Davidson. Seems like an unusual mix. Five different conferences extending from the west to the midwest to the southeast - and none from his home state of California. The only two of the six that are in the same league are Utah and Colorado, and they both joined fairly recently.

I would argue we play more consistently good basketball than than several of the those schools.

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.

Ellis named his top 7 the other day:
Columbia, Penn, Cornell, Bucknell, Lehigh, Santa Clara & Nevada

Will need to cut it down to 5 for his official visits but safe to assume he will be making a trip east for a few of them

Other than Nevada, they are all smaller, academically oriented schools.

New offer to 6-10 Center Brady Heiman from Nebraska. Has offers from Drake, Southern Illinois, Rice, Nebraska Omaha, and South Dakota.



Got his first P5 offer today from his home state Huskers. Article below says he got it on his 5th trip to Lincoln. Sounds like it was the one he was waiting for

http://www.omaha.com/neprepzone/recruiting /boys-ba...




Not surprisingly Heiman committed to Nebraska tonight - his home state school. He will be at his dream school, but will have far less chance of making the NCAA tournament than he would have had at Bucknell. In fact, Nebraska has made the Big Dance once in the past 20 years and has NEVER won a game in it. Ever.

When you live in certain states, the allure of playing at "State U" is difficult to overcome. I hope that Heiman enjoys watching The Dance on TV.

I guess for some, sports isn't the end all when choosing a school (seems extremely odd to say that in reference to a player choosing another school over Bucknell, but that seems to be the discussion here.) Good for him that he gets to go to school where he's always wanted to go, many of people cannot say that. And I do not know him or any other student-athlete making such decisions, but I am sure there are many factors that go into making these choices (well, for most anyway.) My guess is he feels comfortable there and that's okay.

Let's amend that to "enjoys watching Bucknell in the dance on tv."

If the above is accurate and complete, it seems to almost eliminate Bucknell. If a California kid flies out to the northeast, including Eastern PA, and doesn't stop in Lewisburg, that is not a good sign.

Brett Reed is a poor coach when it comes to team play and X's and O's. But he is a great recruiter.

Clearly the kid hasn't seen Stabler during a regular season contest. Hasn't seen them "dance" a lot either because they haven't.

An updated list:

- Nesmith , Aaron 6-6 SF (SC) BUCKNELL OFFER May-2017 ; 22 offers - Charleston, Duq, Charlotte, Harvard, Yale, Columbia, W&M, E. Car., Wofford, Furman, Mercer, Loyola, etc.






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.




To no one's surprise, the Bison did not make Nesmith's final list, which is Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, South Carolina, Yale, Harvard, Florida and Georgetown.

This list does show how Ivy recruiting has changed since Harvard, Yale, and Princeton started offering such generous aid packages to prospective students. If your parents have an income of less than $70,000, you essentially get a free ride. And those with incomes up to $150,000 pay very little. Thus HYP can offer the majority of D1 basketball recruits the equivalent of an athletic scholarship.

- Young , Ryan 6-10 C (PA) BUCKNELL OFFER Apr-2017 ; 30 offers - St. Joes, Richmond, GWU, LaSalle, Duq., ODU, Towson, W&M, Delaware, Dexel, Hofstra, Yale, Penn, Stony Brook, Boston U, Navy, Loyola, LU, LC, Colgate, AU, Columbia, etc.






Ryan Young committed to Northwestern today. He had also recently picked up an offer from Maryland. Not a big deal from the Bison perspective because it had become apparent he was not ending up in Lewisburg. Seemed to be holding out for an offer from Stanford or Notre Dame for awhile, but he opted for Northwestern - maybe after concluding those other offers weren't happening.

By this time, I start getting nervous with no commitments. I have to remind myself that this is not unusual - although DP's last few classes were wrapped up by early September. However there have been a number of October (and November) commitments in the past. Looking back, I think these are the players who committed after Labor Day in past years:

Scholarship Players:

DJ MacLeay 9/3
Steven Kaspar 9/7
Nana Foulland 9/7
Todd O'Brien 9/12
Bruce Moore 9/16
John Meeks 9/19
Ben Brackney 9/23
John Griffin 9/26
Bryson Johnson 10/1
Joe Willman 10/2
Jimmy Sotos 10/3
GW Boon 10/5
Cory Starkey 10/6
Avid Toomer 10/8
Bryan Cohen 10/11
Zach Evans 10/12
Pat Behan 10/17
Probese Leo 10/20
Darren Mastropaolo 10/23
Jason Vegotsky 10/27 (Per Scout; not sure if this is right)
Stephen Tyree 11/1 (?)
Cam Ayers 11/17
Paul Newman 4/13
Matt O'Reilly 5/5


Need-based:
Abe Badmus Winter (?)
Rob Thomas Winter
Andrew Morrison Late Winter


Never could find anything as to when McNaughton committed. Also not sure about Linthicum.

Ben Robertson 9/14

this is of particular significance as it makes it a clean sweep in the Nathan Davis head coaching era. i have no idea, but have wondered if this may in part be a function of his recruiting approach.
