About two weeks ago, Cornell made an offer to Rey Idowu of Holy Trinity Academy in Florida. He was originally listed in the class of 2017, but has since been moved to the class of 2018.

Idowu is a 6'9" two-star power forward with offers from UNH, Richmond, Lafayette, Eastern Tennessee State, Canisius, Louisiana Tech and Little Rock.

Cornell also has an offer to Davis Franks, a 6'7" small forward from Northfield Mount Hermon H.S. (MA). Franks has offers from Brown and American, at this time.

In early July, Jerry Higgins, a 2 star 5'9" point guard from Villa Angela-St. Joseph's High School in Cleveland was at Cornell for an unofficial visit. He was supposed to take part in a camp there, but could not participate due to an injury.

Higgins presently has offers from Army and Fairmont State.

Kobe Dickson, a 6'9" 210 pound F/C from Holcomb High School in Kansas, became Cornell's first commit for 2018. Verbal Commits does not list any other offers.

Dickson was Honorable Mention in the Great West Activities Conference (GWAC). In a 9/2017 Prep Hoops scouring reports, the author noted that "Dickson has the ability to compete in the paint, shoot from the midrange and is a terrific shot blocker, able to protect the rim and the paint."

Looking at other names from the team's Verbal Commits page:
Rey Idowu, who received an offer from Cornell, committed to Illinois State earlier in the week.
Davis Franks took an official visit to Brown this past weeekend.
Trey Wertz, according to posts at the Penn board, has taken recent official visits to Penn, Temple and Santa Clara. No news on any trip to Ithaca.

The stories out of Kansas paint Dickson as very good rebounder and defender -- he helped Holcomb win a state title last year for mid-sized schools. He could be a nice under the radar pick-up.
