Great, great news! Adam Finkelstein likes this commitment but refers to Andrew as a PG.

Great news. Beating out Penn surprises me. Despite what Finelstein may say, I think he is very much a SG - and a good one.

To refresh some memories, he had offers from Penn, Delaware, Drexel, Yale, UMBC, Q'pac, Rider, Boston U, Brown, Loyola, Army, Navy, Colgate, and Lafayette.

Funk junior year highlights:

Funk's Archbishop Wood team went 29-3 last year and was one of the top few teams in PA, winning the 5A state title. . They play some tough competition.

I liked the way he attacks the basket with both hands.

Andrew Funk will really deepen our Guard play next season, and we haven't played a game this year. MacKenzie and O'Reilly will be Seniors, Toomer a Jr, Sotos and Sechan, Sophs, Jones a Sr. and Robertson a Jr. both listed as Guards, I consider both small forwards/guards. Now we have to get another Center or really high level power forward, or one of each. I love it when the Bison just keep reloading.

Andrew, WELCOME!

Looks like a very good shooter from 3 point land. That is the great equalizer in NCAA hoops.

According to City of Basketball Love:
"The younger brother of Army point guard Tommy Funk, Andrew is a rather different player, though they share some characteristics. A long, athletic combo guard, Funk is knockdown outside shooter off the catch, with the ability to hit from all around the perimeter as well as consistent hit the one-dribble pull-up; he's also good at using the side-step to avoid defenders and still hit from 3. Becoming more vocal on the floor, though he's still never had to be the guy on the point, playing behind his brother as a sophomore and alongside Collin Gillespie as a junior; should get more experience running Wood's offense as a senior. A strong academic prospect, Funk will get a lot of looks from Ivy/Patriot schools this summer and could also see looks from the MAAC, CAA and other such mid-major leagues."

Recruiting analysts on Twitter:

Adam Finkelstein
"Love this pick-up for Bucknell. In a limited 2018 PG market, Funk was someone I thought could get higher level interest."

Norm Eavenson
"Versatile,no nonsense guard with court savvy. Always engaged and plays to win.A solid shot maker. Glue guy"

Chick Gillespie
"nice pick up for Bison can help at both G positions"

I approve of this guy and another year really is going to go far until he gets to the Hill. Reminds me a little of Ayers and Shazier also which bodes well for the Bison. My prediction is he's going to surprise in a good way and become a second year starter.

Named one of the standouts of this past weekend's City of Basketball Love Shootout:

http://www.cityofbasketballlove.com/news_article/s...

Excerpt:

"Funk demonstrated his ability to penetrate and find the open man spotting up. The 6-3 guard’s shot from beyond the arc is well documented, but he flashed his ability to drive into the lane, which opened up the floodgates for the rest of Archbishop Wood’s high powered offense. The Archbishop Wood backcourt tandem of Funk and Tyree Pickron did a tremendous job facilitating the action on the court, and setting each other up with open shots."

Funk signed his letter of intent.
