Whether Ledlum is a top 50 recruit is debatable but there is very little debate that he will likely be the top Ivy recruit entering this year.

Nevertheless, it makes little sense to talk about him in the same sentence as MLL. They are very different players with different skill sets who will play very different roles on their college teams.

MLL is a rim protecter and a rebounder with good finishing skills near the hoop. He actually is the type of player we could use this year. AJ has a much broader skill set, but likely would have been even more successful with another long natural big who complements him down low. It seems clear that Max has struggled since the back injury. No one tries harder and he's a net plus, but I wouldn't exactly call him a rim protector and he has had trouble elevating and finishing. I think Harvard got a great player, but I think we got a guy who will really be a big plus in the Penn program going forward.

Apologies if my post in any way was perceived as a comparison or put down of MLL. Hes a terrific prospect and I think he will be a huge part of Penn's future. My Ledlum remark was meant as a stand alone comment, sorry for the miscommunication.

Wasn’t directed at your post. Just making the point that these are different players and that MLL fills a major Penn need that the other guy would not.

I think we have a number of 3/4 types either in the program or joining that fit Steve’s system.

I think I’m more curious how Jelani looks when he returns and how Dingle, Monroe and Charles adjust because we graduate Antonio and Jake after this season.

Regardless, Ledlum and MLL are done. Just lost in the National Prep Championship quarters to Scotland Prep.

Heck of a season for those guys - really overachieved given the talent some of the best schools in New England had relative to what NMH had.

NMH will no doubt return the favor in the spring caber toss championships.

MLL had only 8 points on 3 for 3 shooting and a couple FTs in that game but he had 6 blocks. You can kind of tell the role he'll be asked to play at Penn

I think Lucas Monroe might be last recruit still playing. This past Saturday, Abington won the first round of states, led by Monroe’s 24 points and 16 rebounds. Some nice video on Twitter you can check out there, but the gist is that he is really athletic so a lot of dunks and alley oops. I really like this class for both 1) upping athleticism across the board and 2) bringing a lot of 3 point shooting potential.

Looks like Lucas Monroe scored 10 points in low scoring upset loss (55-51) in second round of states and his season is over.

Tough part of it is they’d actually already beat that team 3X in a row... this season, which is crazy. Tough break but he had a great season and looking forward to seeing him play at Penn.

goes to show it is hard to beat a team 3 times in a row, 4 is really tough.

GO QUAKERS!
