Is anyone else getting nervous ? I'm hoping there are offers out that haven't been made public, but to date I have seen zero offers made to 2018 recruits. Meanwhile, according to Verbal Commits, penn, Yale and Columbia have each offered to over ten kids, and Harvard, I think 4 or 5.

Also, after getting early commitments from Bell, and Stephens ( think there might have been others), I was hoping for another early, really good, get. Not so this year.

Has anyone heard anything promising ?

Silence is golden. Mitch does not mouth off. With this season past, lots of doors will be opening.🐅

I hope you're right. These days, with Twitter, FB, basketball blogs, et al, I would be surprised if an offer from a D1 team were kept secret.

In any event, can't believe I'm worrying over it. 2017 newcomers look very good.

Our forward-looking program is going to use robotic players trained with Big Data in the future, saving lots of time and trouble in recruiting while providing ready-made jokes for all the haters of The System.

There is a rumor he is working the ShopRite circuit.

Looks pretty far under the radar. Would be nice to get another Spencer Weisz to hold things together. I wonder how hard we recruited him.

He's pretty small and was a defensive specialist, not a combination that usually translates well at the D1 level absent blinding quickness. Not clear from the articles that he was a recruited athlete; if not, that makes him a heck of an impressive student with a great "oh, by the way my main extracurricular was being the starting PG on a championship team" part of his admissions profile.

Article suggests, but does not say, that he was recruited. It would be a noticeable outlier to recruit a player who is not rated, however, much less rated under 2 stars. I'm dubious.

If I remember correctly, there were dozens of all-conference and even all-state players in intramural basketball.

The B-league intramural league I briefly played in was tough enough with all those leather-lunged soccer players running us up and down the floor.

I think that's only for high school JV players.
