Nah - don't take it like that. I just have zero info on the on-court side. Offers look pretty okay, so he seems like a solid mid-major prospect.

VC still lists Sean Good, Trey Wertz @ a Savior along with Cotton as Penn recruiting possibles. Anyone have any information on any of those guys?

Jake Forrester had decided weeks ago that his top 5 were:
Indiana, Virginia Tech, Pitt, Seton Hall, and Xavier

Would love to get some 4* players, but as a reminder, Betley was 2*

Per Verbal Commits, Quinn Blair (6' 6" SF from Detroit) has chosen William & Mary.

Also, Verbal Commits noted that Ike Nweke (6' 6" PF from Bethesda) committed to Columbia yesterday. Penn did not give him an offer.

FWIW, the Verbal Commits Ivy League 2018 scorecard looks like this:
Brown - 2 Star PG (Thomas Shaughnessy, 2 Star SG (David Mitchell)
Columbia - 3 Star PF (Ike Nweke)
Cornell - none
Dartmouth - 2.5 Star PG (Taurus Samuels), 3 Star SG (Wes Slajchert)
Harvard - 3.5 Star PG (Spencer Freedman)
Penn - none
Princeton - 3.5 Star PG (Jaelin Llewellyn), 2 Star PG (Ethan Wright), 2 Star SF (Drew Friberg)
Yale - 2 Star PG (Eze Dike-Nwagbara), 2 Star SG (Michael Feinberg)

So Donahue was up at Northfield Mount Herman this past week. Potentially to see Chuck Hannah who is on an official to Elon this weekend. Potentially to see 2019, 2020, or who knows what other players or years.

Also, Kai Toews who is being recruited by other Ivies is on an official to Delaware this weekend. Ithiel Horton is also on his official to Delaware this weekend.

Any word on how it went/is going?

Unrelated - Is it just me or is it always poorly publicized when stuff is happening with Penn recruiting? There isn't a peep about this on social that I've seen.

Don't know how it went but I think it's down to three schools for him, all IL. Suffice to say Penn has focused on Philly area prospects and MC fits the profile perfectly so he is the top priority.

I think it was pretty clear from Donahue when he was first hired that his priority was to recruit Philadelphia area prospects primarily. I am sure they still look outside of Philly but they want to win the battle at home.

If the recruiting philosophy is indeed "win at home" then the results of this battle for Matt Cotton will be telling.

I can't even tell who Penn is battling for Cotton. Seems like he's theirs to lose, though I'm not totally on top of this one to be honest.

There are 2 other prominent IL teams in the mix, where he will be taking official visits. Don't know how high a priority he is to those schools. One of them is Yale, who has 2 commitments at guard already.

Seems way too early to reach this conclusion. This year's class will be very small by design targeting very specific needs.

Maybe in a few more months your post will seem more appropriate but the opposite is just as likely.
