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.

Great pickup for Princeton with 4 Star point guard Jaelin Llewellyn. He was being recruited by many high majors, including Florida, Purdue, Virginia, and Stanford

An insanely good pick up. I like him better than Spencer Freedman, though both are incredible point guards in their own way.

This is not business as usual for this league. Even the recent business as usual. This is crazy.

24/7 currently lists him as a 3-star, but the quality and number of major colleges who offered him is, frankly, amazing. If this is going to be any indication of this year's class......

MH strikes again with a big get late in the season after we're wondering why the silence. His recruiting has been really good.

Isn't this an early-season get since Llewellyn is Princeton's first 2018 recruit?

In any case, kudos to the coaching staff! The PG spot will be wide-open after Amir Bell graduates so he will have an immediate opportunity to make an impact.

He may be the Tigers' highest-rated commit, although I can't remember how many stars were bestowed upon Ian Hummer. Bill Bradley and Brian Taylor would have been in the same strata back in the day, but that preceded the advent of the recruit-industrial complex.

Llewellyn is a better recruit (not predicting a better outcome, just that the starting point is better) than Hummer was coming in. Hummer had excelled in a really tough basketball conference in high school, no doubt, but he was an undersized 4 who couldn't shoot it.

Jaelin has the right size and athleticism for his spot and could have played PG at any level on both ends of the floor. Who knows how things will turn out, but he's definitely a higher profile prospect coming in than Hummer.

Bill Bradley Recruiting from Ivy@50:

But the greatest basketball player ever to play in the Ivy League almost didn't end up there. One of the most celebrated players in Missouri high school basketball history, Bradley received more than 70 scholarship offers before originally deciding on Duke. Soon after, he suffered a broken foot playing baseball, an injury that caused the high school senior to contemplate a life without the game that had come to consume his life.

"I thought to myself, 'Well, where would I go if I didn't play basketball?'"

"The Princeton freshman class was supposed to convene on a Monday and the Duke freshman class on a Wednesday," remembers Bradley. "On the previous Friday I came home from a date and I woke my parents up and told them I had changed my mind."

Two classy Canadians in two years. Has MH decided to focus on NJ and Canada for our future stars?
