Things have been quiet on the Cornell recruiting trail for 2019, but there may be hope.

According to a tweet from Mark Miller of Wisconsin Basketball Yearbook, Nobal Days has narrowed his list of schools to Cornell, Tulane and Wisconsin.

Days is a 6'9" power forward from Racine, Wisconsin. ESPN and Rivals list him as a three star recruit. Verbal Commits has offers from Norfolk State, Nebraska, Boston College, Northwestern, St. Louis, Kansas State, UNLV, Illinois, DePaul and Marquette. Rivals lists him as having an offer from Princeton.

According to a 9/23/18 article in the Journal Times, Days went to Tulane on 9/13-9/16 and was scheduled to visit Cornell on 9/21-9/22. That weekend was Cornell's Homecoming, which is a really nice time to see the school since there are a lot of events that are well attended by students and alums. Unfortunately, it rained on Friday and the evening fireworks event was cancelled.

The Journal Times article also mentioned that Days was considering official visits to Princeton and Wisconsin, but Days' father would only comment on the trips to Tulane and Cornell.

A 6/4/18 post at a Wisconsin blog, Bucky's 5th Quarter mentioned that Days will be visiting Wisconsin on 10/15/18 when the football team takes on Ohio State.

Looking at the Rivals website, Jon McNamara, publisher of BadgerBlitz.com listed Days with a 100% prediction of choosing Cornell on 9/14/18.

Fingers crossed for the Big Red.

100% prediction is strong. I’m no math guy but that doesn’t leave a lot of room for error!

The big question is, if Days comes to Cornell, will he give a 110% effort?

Cornell gets its first recruit for the Fall of 2019. Jordan Jones is a 2 star 6' 5" SG from LA, who graduated from Oaks Christian High School in Southern California. This year, he is doing a prep year at Phillips Exeter Academy.

He is not listed as having any other offers, at Verbal Commits.

Last year, he was first team Division 2A All-CIF (California Interscholastic Federation). He averaged 14 points, 6.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game.

Interesting info from the above article:
- Jordan Jones is one of the best basketball players in Ventura County.

At one time, his body was ravaged by an autoimmune disorder. He was hobbled by juvenile arthritis. He shuttled in and out of hospitals. He kept getting injured and sick. His body atrophied.

He became, in his own words, weak.

The autoimmune disorder he suffered in eighth grade and his freshman year of high school was never officially diagnosed.

And then, poof, it was gone.

“It was really a two-year long mystery that kind of went away,” said Jones, an incoming senior at Oaks Christian High. “I don’t even know how to wrap my head around it.

“I’m just glad it’s over. Now, I’m honestly just happy to play basketball.”

Jones, 18, exudes joy on the court. The sweet-shooting lefthanded guard can be found smiling and cheering loudly for his teammates. He knows the game can be snared away from him at any moment, and he appreciates, truly appreciates, every moment. -

Don't think Cornell needs to worry about Wisconsin in Nobal Days' recruitment. The Badgers have been out of this one for awhile. Days received a Wisconsin offer in September 2016, which was very in his recruitment, but hasn't show much improvement since. Its been said that Days called the Wisconsin coaching staff over the summer and tried to commit, but it wasn't accepted.

Unless a prep school or late-bloomer jumps off the page in the spring, Wisconsin will push its remaining 2019 scholarship to 2020. This will give them three spots in a deep class and there's word that Lorne Bowman could be No. 1 on Friday.

In the end, I think Tyler Wahl (4*, 247) is the only member of Wisconsin's 2019 class.

In the end, Cornell didnt' have to worry about Wisconsin. However, they did have to worry about Tulane - where Days committed to this morning.

Ouch. Crazy that someone would pick New Orleans over Ithaca.

Cornell picked up its 2nd commitment for 2019 earlier today - Marcus Filien, a 6' 7" or 6' 8" PF from Albany, NY.

He played for the Albany Academy for Boys and is doing a prep year at Philips Academy Andover.

https://twitter.com/M_Filien/status/10798 032559941...

He averaged 3.9 points and 5.9 rebounds per game as a junior at Albany. In his senior year, he averaged 14.0 points and 7.9 rebounds per game, while shooting 58 percent from the field and 37 percent from 3-point range.

Some video of recruit Jordan Jones:

Not a scout, but Jordan does have the story of someone who could be an under-the-radar find. Specifically, he's been playing catch-up after losing his 8th and 9th grade years to an autoimmune issue.

Jones was named NEPSAC Class A Player of the Year. I know nothing about any other player at that class, but it is hard to to better than POY.

Big Red gets a commitment from Greg Dolan, 6’3” guard who, after being named the 2018 Buffalo area player of the year, earned 2nd-team honors as a PG at Northfield Mount Hermon. Dolan had offers from Buffalo, Albany, Dartmouth, Canisius Siena, Bryant and a few others. Doesn’t address Cornell’s desperate need for more size, but the Red has a couple of nice guards from the NE prep league heading to Ithaca.

There is a also a need for a PG. Earl's offense isn't as dependent on a PG as others, but McBride is the only returnee with that particular set of skills.

Interesting that Earl has gone exclusively prep school in this year's class (at least so far).

- Dolan told the Buffalo News that he chose the Ivy League institution in nearby Ithaca over Canisius, Campbell (N.C.), Colgate, Elon, Siena and Dartmouth. -

- Dolan just completed his prep school season with Northfield Mount Hermon (Mass.), helping the program the win New England Prep Schools Athletic Conference championship and reach the national quarterfinals. NMH won a program-record 32 games.

Dolan averaged 12.5 points, 5.8 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game for NHU.

Prior to attending prep school for a year, Dolan shined for four seasons as a starter with Williamsville South, earning All-Western New York first team honors three times. He helped the program win two Section VI Class A championships and reach the 2016 state semifinals. As a senior at South, Dolan averaged 28.6 points, 8.8 rebounds, 7.1 steals and 6.9 assists per game. -

Here's something from last April, after he decided to go to NMH for a prep year.

https://buffalonews.com/2018/04/13/south-bask etbal...

- "It's more basketball related," the 6-foot-4 Dolan, a two-time All-Western New York first-team selection, told The News. "My grades were fine. I'm using it to kind of get bigger and stronger and just be able to get more used to playing a lot of games in a season, 20 minute halves and to be prepared to make an impact as a freshman coming into college." -

- Dolan has started for South since his freshman year, leading the Billies to two Section VI Class A titles and a state semifinal appearance.

This season his role morphed as he went from more of an offensive distributor to shouldering the scoring load for South. He scored a career-high 47 points in a December win over Cardinal O'Hara and scored 36 points in his final scholastic game, a 97-95 four-overtime loss to West Seneca West in the sectional final. He finished with 2,019 points in his career. -

- Dolan had offers to go to several Division I schools, including University at Buffalo, Canisius, Albany and Dartmouth. He said it was tough to not accept one of those, but feels going to prep school for a year will be beneficial. -
