New offer to Alex Timmerman 6-9 C (IL). Bucknell is the first to offer

Nice to see the staff offering some big guys the past two days. I trust the staff but I also want to make sure we aren't just extending offers to bigs because we are in desperate need

I'm not worried about being the first school to offer kids in April. The majority of players who end up playing D1 don't have any offers at this stage of their junior year, and someone has to be first. As you say, we just have to hope the staff is doing a good job of evaluation.

history indicates this staff does not freely extend offers, so i am not concerned about any offers extended this early. there is, of course, always the question of evaluation and unknown of how a player will develop going forward. they could have offered Verbeek or Willis among others they looked at for 2018 if they were panicing about signing a big.

Ironically just after I posted this, Watts reported that he just received a Bison offer.

He also has a Columbia offer.

That's seven new offers in the last 36 hours to players 6-8 or taller. Welcome news for those desperately looking for big men. Also four new ones to shorter players.

Akanno will be doing a post-grad year at Blair. Just finished four years at Valencia HS, an outer suburb of Los Angeles. Described as being under-the-radar, he was 5-8 as a soph, 6-2 as a junior, and now 6-4. It appears he can play some SG as well.

New offer to 6-11 center Qudus Wahab from Virginia - Flint Hill School. Has offers from Seton Hall, St. John's, Pitt, VCU, Syracuse, Clemson, UMass, GMU, St. Joes, Colgate, ODU, Northern IL, etc. All but three of the offers look like they are from at least 7 months ago. No idea if all are still in effect.

I assume he must be the four-star that HC70 made some cryptic reference to on the HC board.

I don't think so - since his comment was from early this morning. To begin with, there is no-one on the planet who knows less about recruiting than HC70 (except perhaps his fictitious "AAU friend"). He gives enormous credence to the ESPN rankings - which are a complete joke. Almost any player who is tall as a freshman gets a 3 or 4 star ranking, which sticks with them forever. Of the Bison offers in the past few days, three or four are ESPN four star players - Brayboy, Jarvis, Wahab, and maybe Evtimov. The ESPN ranking may or may not mean anything.

If you look back through the ESPN rankings, there are tons of 3 and 4 star players who never even get a D1 offer. Lafayette's incoming big man, Sean Good, got a 4 star from ESPN. Looks like he will be a solid PL center, but certainly not a 4 star player. Will not be as good as Foulland, Kempton, Muscala, etc. - and I wouldn't be surprised if he is not as good as Trist or Mintz.

Offer to Tom Welch, a 6-8 PF from Illinois - Naperville North. Has offers from Loyola (IL), Ball State, Kent State, Miami (OH), Wofford, Furman, Brown, Western IL, and FAU.

One interesting thing about Welch is that he is one of the state's top soccer goalkeepers, having led his team to two consecutive IL large school championships.
