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

Sounds like Steve is looking for his next Jeff Foote.

This Caleb is actually Matthews. (I auto-correct too, even when it's turned off.)

Him too. Knew that would happen at least once. Sorry about that. Wood needs the extra pub nowadays.

There's certainly video of these two out there if really interested.

From the outside we definitely seem to be in with some very high level 2018 prospects. Its still early, but let's hope we can land a few!

If he went to Sidwell Friends, that means Bey was a high school teammate of Jelani Williams.

Not sure if this is just a Carmody joke at Sparman's expense, genuine curiosity or something else, but Robby Carmody is a consensus Top 100 player with Butler, Syracuse, Notre Dame, Michigan, etc. offers.
