I think this kid is a legit 3 star recruit. I think he will be an impact player in the Ivy's for at least 2 years. With this recruit, SD and his staff have done a really nice job as all 3 players in this class are going to contribute if not early, then a year or two down the road.

247 Sports has Bryce ranked as #9 recruit in Michigan. Every recruit ranked above him signed with a Big 10 school (4 with MSU, 2 with Mich, 1 with Wisc, 1 with Purdue) and the two below him signed with Butler and Duquesne.

I guess he's kind of a big deal around there.

OK, I went through his profile more just now. Apparently he is a good catch-and- shoot shooter and has a great motor. He was also the state high jump champ as a sophomore, HS prom king, and class president.

Who is this guy? Forget finance. Bryce Washington for President!

It does strike me as a bit bizarre that we don't know more about this one. I'd love some details if anyone has them. Gets like this don't often just drop out of the clear blue sky. Was this the one others were alluding to?

Other schools were scared off by his interest in high-jumping while wearing a tuxedo.

Don't they do that at the Ivy Club before dinner?

The first mention of Penn and Bryce was in a newspaper article that said Coach Mihalich was at one of his games at the very end of February. I suspect this was the unnamed player Chip heard reference to and mentioned in a post in March. Bryce visited Penn either in late March or early April.

I don't know exactly how we got involved. I don't think he was on our radar in the fall. He might have ended up at Pitt had their staff not been disbanded. Then one of the Pitt guys ended up at Drake which also offered him late and might have been the primary competition in April.

So - I don't have the full story but I think this was a very late winter/early spring development that many of us are extremely pleased with.

Athletically this player is right up there. I've always believed there is never a one to one correlation between athleticism and success in our league. Brown has a player (Okalie) who has tremendous athletic ability and is a pretty decent player, but not the player that his level of athleticism might project.

Bryce has been described as a hard worker who can shoot the ball and is willing to defend. So it sounds promising, but like all recruits, we'll need to see how easily those positive attributes transfer to D1 bb, even at a mid major like Penn. Personally I agree with those who think we got a player with a very high ceiling and am very hopeful.

It's a great late signing, for certain.

Do you know if we still are in play for a late transfer of a player with skills like Caleb? That's the one thing that we really need for the upcoming season.

The fact that Mike James has had nothing to say about this speaks of the total coup involved. I'll bet this is one player that even Harvard would love to have for the next 4 years.

Checks off all Donahue's boxes. Great!

Added bonus : he hits FTs according to the stats PF10 found.

This is exactly the type of player we should be recruiting. I'm very encouraged with what Donahue is doing. Also happy to hear about Joe Mihalich's involvement.

I don’t know the specifics, however, we might have been the benefactor of the Pitt turnover in staff. They offered in the fall and other schools may have backed off and when the staff was released he became “available”

Jamir Harris just announced for American U. Will sit next year and then play the next three.

Love the thought of Bryce and Jelani in the backcourt in years to come. They could become terrors on defense. If they both can shoot and play in the Donahue offense of ball movement, their ceiling is very high. They would make us much longer and more athletic in the backcourt. May they heal and develop quickly! Martz, Imegwu, and Wang also seem much more compelling in combination with this backcourt.

Or how about the fast break lineup - Goodman, Washington, Scott or Betley, Simmons and Brodeur.

That's a squad that could really get up and down the floor.

Anyone hear anything about the health of Towns? Utter silence from the Harvard people since that injury....and he was the best player in the league.

And above it (for that first trio).

I was watching some of Bryce's highlights, and realized that he looks like a lefty on his many dunks, but shoots righty. I don't know if I've ever seen that before.
