Davis's video looked promising. He seemed to find open spaces and make good cuts to the basket. A team can always use a player in motion without the ball.

Haven’t gotten myself overly educated on specific players in the 2019 class yet, but from what I’ve observed following Noah at NMH, Max is playing like a high major player. Given Harvard’s needs for the 2019 class, I’d expect the Crimson to be heavily involved as likely will other Ivies. Will be interesting to see where things shake out following the spring and summer travel seasons.

If that read is true, then, well, there's your answer... The Ivy hit rate on recruits that can generate high major interest and also need significant FA is, umm, well, ya know... not good.

Probably not the right time to mention that Max Martz (who Penn watched before their game against Dayton) was hosted by Ohio State for their game against Clemson.

Long shot I think. We made an attempt to recruit him out of hs, obviously without success.

Also - don't see some of the other names mentioned as possible late signees or transfers showing visible interest in Penn. Now maybe stuff is happening behind the scenes, although I doubt it.

your phrasing confuses me a little PF. Do you mean:

1. We have one possible recruit for 2019 (two septembers from now) and then we're done recruiting for then?

2. We have one possible transfer recruit who wouldn't be allowed to play until September 2019 because of traditional transfer rules?

3. We have one possible recruit for 2018 who would obviously be a late edition but could play this September?

It's good to see Penn in the mix with a number of high level transfers. It's easier to imagine a transfer making an immediate impact, although the program will eventually need to sustain on it's own Freshman recruits.

The only downside is that the team chemistry was so good this year - and transfers tend to upset the existing existing players who lose PT more than Freshmen. I'll give this team and Donahue the benefit of the doubt in making it work, however.

Keep in mind that this year's very valuable sixth man was a two-year transfer. I'll take to years of that kind of play.

From Cityofbasketballlove.com:

JB Hoops opened its April live periods with a four-point overtime win against Alvin Gentry Elite (Az.) in a 17U showcase game, riding the hot hand of Leo O’Boyle. The Scranton Prep junior accounted for 29 of his team’s 62 points in the victory, showcasing a versatile scoring ability from all over the floor. A 6-foot-6, 215-pound wing forward, O’Boyle knocked down three 3-pointers along the way but got most of his production within 15 feet, hitting several contested pull-up jumpers and driving layups with both hands through contact.

“It’s really going to build up my confidence, now knowing that I’m shooting pretty well, driving pretty well and all of that,” he said afterwards. “So hopefully I can keep it going.”

O’Boyle has picked up one Division I offer in high school tenure, from NJIT as a sophomore, but he said he’s no longer being recruited by that school’s staff. Instead, it’s now Ivy/Patriot types who are reaching out to a student-athlete with a 3.7 GPA; O’Boyle named Colgate, Holy Cross, Dartmouth, and Penn as four in particular that had been in touch of late. Penn head coach Steve Donahue, who brought O’Boyle down to an elite camp last summer was watching this outing from the baseline.

Assign the longest tenured player #4, offer the next player to show up #44. If a third shows up, offer him #22. If you're lucky enough to add a fourth to your roster, offer him #8. The fifth? Assign him #16.

Beyond that, I have no more suggestions.

Per the FIBA website, Lorca-Lloyd is 6'7" and attends Northfield Mount Hermon.

I was under the impression he was more like 6'10".

Whatever-- he's a 4-star recruit. We should temper our expectations.
