Well, no commits for 2018 yet but at least we are doing something, per Corey Evans on the twitter machine:


Penn head coach Steve Donahue & Georgetown were in today for Pacifica Christian Orange County High 2020s Dominick Harris and Judah Brown

I appreciate the updates but still believe it is INSANE that we (and everyone else) are recruiting guys like this who have just started their sophomore year in HS! Some of them may even be 16 years old but probably most couldn't even get a driver's permit, let alone a license.

If it helps, Luke is 6'8" barefoot and around 205 now. He plays for NJ Playaz AAU in the spring and attends Montclair Kimberley Academy. He camped down at Penn and got offered right after camp and had Penn coaches following him through the rest spring/summer at various events and AAU camps. Needless to say, he's excited about it.

To the point below about early offers. At this point (Luke turns 16 in Jan 18 so he's not reclassed like so many others), its not much more than trying to get ahead of the curve and build a rapport. Cant act on it/sign anything until Jr year when one has a qualifying test score and grades. Plus the school doesnt have to honor it and offer the signable LOI either, so its more about relationship building. Kids in the top 50-75 and better tend to get 2-3 offers during freshman AAU season (Luke was 77 on rivals and 78 on scout last year). Top 5 kids get 15+ during this time, (look at NJ kids like Noah Farahkan or Jabri Abdur Rahim offers as FYI).

That said, Luke likes UPenn alot and likes the coaches he's met (Mihalich and Bowman and of course the head coach) and is trying to set up unofficial visits for fall and during season to come back to see the school as well as basketball practices.

Thanks for the perspective, I hope Luke finds the right place and that Penn continues to be an attractive option.

Mashburn Sr. Played for Pitino at Kentucky. I don’t think Cal feels much loyalty to that generation. And it’s a new era, if he isn’t top 25 they aren’t spending much time on him at this point.

I watched his sophomore highlights video and he looks like he would be a GREAT get. Big, physical, and skilled. Perfect guy for a Dohahue offense (and defense) - especially if he can pass too. It's hard to really see his full presence on video, but he appeared to have a good motor.

He's from Oradell. Bill Parcells was from Oradell. Just saying. And I love those Catholic HS kids. Penn has had a ton of great ones over the years.

I seem to recall Bagnoli got a lot of his football players from Bergen Catholic.

Now they go to play at Columbia.
