Old Bison, GW has about 11,300 undergrads. Undergrads are required to live on campus until the end of their Junior year. So, they have a lot of students in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of DC. (My older son is one of the undergrads.) The commuter element that you mentioned is largely students in their various graduate programs, medical school, law school, etc.

If GW had a little bit better hoops program, IMO, it would be a fun school to attend for a student athlete.

Thanks. Which is why I qualified my comments, because as stated I am not overly familiar with the University. My other distinctions clearly still apply as 11.3k is a far cry from 3.9 --- the introduction of the information that your son is already enrolled as an undergraduate however clouds the issue as it transforms the post from its original context and injects a personal element. So as to obviate any potential personal conflict suffice to say that the basis of my post is valid and Bucknell represents an extraordinary opportunity for the young man on a number of levels. I did not even include Nathan Davis' track record as a coach and the stabilty of the BU hoop program over time vis -a-vis GW as you have alluded.

OB, I agree with you. Actually, I stated above, "If he values a great education at a very solid program, Bucknell appears to be his best option."

OB, I agree. Just like a good pair of shoes, the school has to just fit and feel right. What you like and what I like might not be the same.

As an alumni, GW gladly welcomes Offururm. GW is a tough place to recruit at the A-10 level.

True for every school, student athlete or just student. My co-worker's daughter has Pitt and Lehigh ahead of Bucknell on her list of schools after visiting all (interest is engineering.) Just where you feel comfortable, among other factors.

Agree, it can be tough to like a place that is out in the middle of nowhere. But boy, once you get to know that place in the middle of nowhere, there is no place like it!

Bison 63, I couldn't agree more and speaking for myself I was never mature enough or even bright enough to understand that at the time. From the "Summer of 42" --- "life is made up of small comings and goings and for everything we take with us, there is something we leave behind". How do you explain to a 17 year old the feeling he will have the day of graduation when he drives from that campus for the last time as an undergraduate. I need to go back and see how Webster defines the word melancholy after I write this. Youth is wasted on the young and it is only with experience that we realize Bucknell might have been the first place as an adolescent that we truly felt "part of". Maybe the English teachers and poetry majors should do the recruiting! Unfortunately, if that were the case we might find we were a little "soft" somewhere down the line.

New offer to 6-6 SF Jeameril Wilson from Notre Dame of Niles IL, a suburb of Chicago. Has offers from Lehigh and IUPIU, plus five D2's. The offer may be a reaction to Offorum's commitment and possible lack of interest from Ellis.

Quentin Millora Brown to Rice

Sounds like we've got an assistant in Chicago checking out Ryan Davis (along with Toledo and Vermont). No word on his official visits

I'm sorry I missed this post. How is your son doing? Is he having a positive experience?

Well, he certainly likes to dunk and block shots. I have no idea if he can even shoot a free throw, but as long as he can dunk in traffic and protect the rim, I would be very happy.

Here is a brief write up where it says that he is "physically imposing" with a "3.8 GPA" with interest in mostly good academic schools.

Here is a quote from Njoku: “I think my hustle will be most definitely what I’ll be able to bring. Always willing to work harder on my game on the defensive end and willing to put my body on the line.”

Wow I want him. That is a lot of dunks, but you can't teach explosive athleticism for someone that big. We're starting to see us recruit more athletic bigs. I like it.
