Hooks picked Princeton over Harvard, Yale, Brown, and Georgetown. He's ranked #242 for the Class of 2020 by Scout.com.

Looked at a couple of videos against smaller opponents. Big wide body, soft hands. Likes the left handed baby hook. Saw one jumper from the elbow with a nice stroke but nothing farther out.

Reminds me of Brendan Connolly but with more offense.

I wish Howard Levy or Jesse Rosenfeld were still a part of the Princeton coaching staff.

With Richmond and Gladson graduating next year, the Tigers obviously need a big and it seems unlikely that this year's freshmen player from South Jersey is the solution although you never know.

Watching video of the California kid shows some developed offensive moves and bulk but not a jumper or overly athletic but then again one only has to think of where Richmond was at the beginning of his Tiger career and where he will finish.

Mason Hooks sounds like a play-by-play excerpt from 1999

Has a really funky release on his jumper; reminds me of Sydney Johnson

Quite the stocky physique. Could play tight end for the football Tigers. Good footwork though, on the brief clip available on Verbal Commits.

Not a big fan of recruits that Mitch is securing other than obviously Jaelin and possibly the shooting guard from So. California. Some of the recruits just do not look quick enough or do not elevate.

I think that Mitch needs to recruit the atleticism let's say of Richmond Arirguzoh vs. the traditional Tiger big man, i.e. Will Gladson.

Do not think that the Tigers will be competing against Harvard, Yale and perhaps others unless the recruiting focus changes.

Hate to say it but not a big fan of what I am seeing on Youtube.

Gotta be honest here...

Not sure you are doing enough research.

I'll let you find the YT videos.

The recruiting class starting this fall is very athletic (Kellman, Kiszka, Evbuomwan, Langborg), but I agree that the three recruits for the 20-21 class might not be.

Of the three, I think (although I know nothing) Zach Martini shows the most promise. Nice use of left hand, uses his body well.

Zach Martini -

https://www.nj.com/highschoolsports/2019 /07/nj-loc...

- On July 8, the 6-7 power forward committed to Princeton over a handful of schools - including Brown, Columbia and Yale.

“Princeton was pretty new to my recruiting process, but they took it to a whole different level,” Martini said. "That started with head coach (Mitch) Henderson. The relationship I’ve built with him since April has been great. We talk a lot. In late June, he told me that they were ready to commit and were waiting on me. I took a week and sat on that, talked to my family and everyday the talk came back to Princeton. That’s where I wanted to be.”

During Martini’s talks with the head coach, Henderson compared him to Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green and expects him to play that same role on both ends of the floor for Princeton.

Luckily for Princeton, Green is a player that Martini has modeled his game after for years.

"Coach Henderson wants me to facilitate, run the floor, play the post and stretch the floor at times. On defense, he wants me to be a dog and have the mentality that nobody is going to score on me,” Martini said. “It’s Draymond’s dog mentality that I idolize about his game. He’s ruthless. He has no friends on the court.”

Last season was a breakout year for Martini. He transferred to Gill St. Bernard’s from Rutgers Prep prior to his junior season and increased his stats from 8.2 points and 6.6 rebounds per game to 14.8 points and 11.1 rebounds per game. He also posted 20 double-doubles in 30 games - an increase from just two in 18 games his sophomore year. -

Wasn't there a Zach Martin (no "i") who was recruited to Princeton about 10-15 years ago? Highly touted. Don't think his career amounted to much.

It's a slow day.
