folks, i did the hard work of going through the followers of matt cotton/following list.

He isn't followed/following Jarrod or Jelani and they aren't following him. a commitment can't occur without that. and for those asking, it's necessary but not sufficient to ensure commitment.

I have to say that is brilliant, jeff2sf.

Only caveat is that he wouldn't have met them on a campus visit (yet?) since school hasn't started yet. So the question would be whether he has taken a visit already and if so whether he is connected on social media with our sophs (Goodman, Betley, Brodeur, and co.). After the start of school, you're right that it's about Jarrod, Jelani, and Eddie.

Nice work!

PennFan10 is as connected as connected can be. I trust him.

Considering what he's saying, I hope he's right.

pf10 is definitely connected. i did 11 minutes of twitter stalking that means little.

But to be clear, "good news" can refer to lots of things of varying levels of goodness. it'd be good if Shortie Johnson a 5'7 crafty point guard with a high motor plus a 4.0 GPA and 1600 on his SATs committed. But that might not meet my or your standards of good news.

Maybe he's referring to the 'good news' of the Gospel?

Jeff, in most contexts I'd find what you're doing as troubling behavior. In this one we thank you for your service.

I don't completely understand recruiting rules but I'm guessing that there may be limits with what players on the team can do. There would be no such limit with what another recruit can do since they're not enrolled.

You might be confusing booster rules with players connecting with recruits or other recruits connecting with each other via Twitter or otherwise.

Jeff has made a solid observation. Perhaps the "expected needs" relates to another player - perhaps Andrew Funk or someone else and not Matt Cotton.

It doesn't appear he is following any other players of current college teams, except J'Quan Newton of Miami. He IS following Steve Donahue and Joe Mihalich. To be fair he is also following Rutgers, Towson, LaSalle and a couple others as well. So what does that tell you? Hmmmm....

Matt Cotton is linked with Andrew Funk. This piece makes our chances with Andrew Funk sound pretty good.

FWIW, my wife (taught at St. Ant's until it closed) raves about Ithiel's character and academic drive. Obviously, that's not a basketball scouting report, but assuming that side is there, Penn would be getting an amazing kid.

She was very excited to hear that Penn was on his list - said it was very well deserved.

Disappointing another target didn't choose Penn (not that there is any shame to losing a kid to Bucknell since they are a great program). That said, it is kind of interesting that Funk spoke so highly of Penn in that last article, but hadn't visited officially yet and would be visiting "in the near future". Then, without an official visit he picked Bucknell.

That could of course simply be that he loved Bucknell and wanted to go for it (new offer to Horton seems to indicate that this wasn't expected). I have no inside info whatsoever, but I wonder where he was in priority for Penn staff because we have a lot of offers to wings. For now I'll just be curious to see how it all plays out...

I appreciate the off the court scouting report on Mr. Horton. It obviously begs the question of, what is the on the court scouting report? Now I can read between the lines if you want and say, if all we're talking about is his personality, then maybe he's not THE one we're waiting for. This reminds me of a time in my single life (before Mrs. Jazzy Jeff) when I was once asked to go on a blind date with a friend of my friend's girlfriend. Being a young man, my first question was "how does she look"? The response was, "she's a nice girl and has a great personality"? I immediately declined the date... Are we in the same situation here?
