Thought there was already a thread but I didn't see one so...

Middlesex Magic AAU team tweeted Cormac Ryan has over 30 offers and recently visited Penn, Yale, Stanford, and Villanova. He may be a long shot but at least we are getting some consideration.

Wow. I loved his video. He would be one of the best all around players in a long time. I tried to think of Penn players he reminded me of, but in almost every case you would have needed to start the sentence with "a more athletic version of" or "a better shooting..."

Players that came to mind were Jerry Simon, Tim Begley, Jeff Schiffner, Ira Bowman, Andy Toole, Barry Pierce, Caleb Wood...

Undoubtedly would be a great prospect. We could win championships with him, our 2017 recruits, and Brodeur.

Happy New Year everyone!

Check out these two names and the season Smyrna is putting together in DE: Caleb Wood and Zubui Nwankwo.

My buddy has some friends who are very involved in the DE high school sports world so he shared some interesting updates. I understand that we don't want to tell the whole world who we're recruiting but would it hurt for some of the Penn insiders to share what they know once in a while? We usually get our info from out of the Penn world.

It sounds like Caleb, a great shooter and their big scorer from a farm in DE, has an offer from Temple already.

Zubui (pronounced Zubi) is 7'2 and came over from Nigeria and just moved here this season from Kentucky. He has played for 4 years and just soaks up rebounds, blocks and points around the basket. My buddy was at his game last night and said his free throw form leads one to believe that there's basketball talent in his raw skill and while a project, he could really turn into a player. I think his line last night was 11-15-7. He went up against a top rated recruit over winter break and the 6'10 kid didn't know what hit him.

His dad is a prof at Del St and very much wants his son to get a good education...The story below mentions his younger brother too but he went back to KY. They're the number one team in DE and will be favored to win state. Both apparently visited and Steve has been down there.

Caleb and Zubui -Smyrna and Clayton Sun Times

There's an interview with 4-Star junior Cormac Ryan, where he discusses the main teams in the running in his recruitment.

Unfortunately, Penn is not on that list. Yale, where his brother is a sophomore, is in that core group with Notre Dame, Michigan, Stanford, Villanova and Northwestern.

See his self written profile below, looks like he grew from 6 7 to 6 10 and is an alter boy and wants to study business, we should have a good shot at him

My name is Ryan Young, I'm currently a 6'7" rising junior playing AAU basketball for the Jersey Shore Warriors. I attend Bethlehem Catholic HS in Bethlehem PA. I aim to continue playing at the collegiate level regardless of the division or location. I would like to attend a college that would excel in helping me pursue a career in business. I feel that I would be a strong asset to your team because of my basketball IQ, coach-able attitude, and 110% effort I bring to the court every time I play. I believe these attributes are what earned me the captain position of numerous teams I have been a part of in the past. I have been appointed captain of my basketball, football, volleyball, and lacrosse teams by my coaches and teammates. I believe that that says a lot about my character and what I bring to the team. Academically I have been in all honors classes since middle school and have a GPA of 3.2/4.0. I also participate in several groups at school like key club and peer listeners club, I volunteer regularly with my family locally, and I am an alter server at my church.

True that. A lot of the biz courses that I took (at another institution of higher learning) were dumbed down liberal arts courses (Marketing, Organizational Behavior, Bus. Psych., etc.).

Interesting. My one Wharton course (Legal Studies) definitely benefited from the humanistic and liberal arts themes sprinkled throughout.

Not surprisingly, I was told later that it was the most "unWharton"ish course that existed.

So we all took the same course.

I took 2 other Wharton courses. One was heavy in mathematical modeling so easy to ace for an engineering student in a room full of Whartonites. Another was in public planning, which was very fascinating but of course no Whartonites took it.

With Bauer, although others took with Dolfman.

I loved the course--he used Socratic method in a large room and was an active participant. I really hated my Talmud courses in high school (2 forty minute periods for four years...still don't care for it after all of these years) but that training really came in handy for that course and I aced it.

My favorite Socratic method story is at Columbia, where the stern Hans Smit taught Federal Civil Procedure 1 (I had Ruth Bader Ginsberg for II---snore). He worked off a seating chart and called on people, probably checking off those who have answered and moving onto others. Before classes started, the seating chart was on the wall in the hallway and students were required to put their name on a particular seat. Well, not every seat was filled in that class and some joker wrote in "P. Ness" in one unfilled box.

You can guess what happened. Smit got around to that box and asked a question, calling out, "What do you think about that, Mr. Ness? Mr. Ness? Is there a P. Ness in the classroom?" Snickers all around...and the Teutonic glare glazed over and he chuckled and said, "OK, you think that's funny?" He then destroyed the class with rapid fire Socratic questions for the next half-hour, with Kingsfield-like putdowns after each student got the answer wrong.

Other than that, law school kinda sucked (except for playing noon games at center court at Levien--those were classic).

Funny- Stephen Breyer taught Admin Law for a year at my law school and I was told he was boring as hell.

We didn't have the imagination that your classmates had. But granted, we only had one professor who was strictly Socratic, and other than letting you hang for several painful moments if you didn't know the answer, he really wasn't a dick.

I took legal studies with Dolfman it as well. I transferred to Wharton after 2 years of Engineering and this did wonders for my GPA. Were your public planning courses in the Regional Science department? I took 2 of those and they were among my favorites at Penn.
