SBum – where do you stand on guard priorities, meaning who you think are the staffs wish list of unsigned guards?

Just judging by internet chatter and trying to read between the digital lines:

Keith Pinckney – received a Lehigh offer in April and the staff was at his open gym last week (any maybe this morning again). Three star + prospect with a bunch of high major offers. Pinckney has repetedly included LU in lists of those schools recruiting him. Unclear how Pinckney feels about LU but LU definitely seems to still be very interested. Has not visited Bethlehem to my knowledge.

Nate Mason – Lehigh offered in April/May and Mason visited LU unofficially in June. Blew up a bit over the summer and now has a bunch of BCS offers. Listed Lehigh in top 7 in August with Harvard, Minn, UVa, Memphis, Kansas State, and Murray State. Three star guy. If he hasn’t knocked Lehigh out of the running, I assume we are still very interested.

C.J. Davis – Lehigh among final 7 with Stanford, Columbia, Boston University, Miami, Seton Hall and Davidson. Visited unofficially in August. Probably considered a 2 star + guy and a lot of his high major interest was earlier in his high school career.

Oliver Tot – If we offered him last week on the spot, I assume that means that we are very interested. Kid is super athletic on tape and would bring some very interesting size to our backcourt.

Kahron Ross – Lehigh offered way back in September of 2012. Had a pretty big summer and has some solid mid major offers and high major interest. 2/3 star guy and scheduled for an official visit on October 4-6.

Henry Bolton – Not a lot out there but Bolton has listed Lehigh as having offered as recently as August. Has some other solid mid major offers.

There are dozens of other guards we have been linked to, but the above are guys where at least one party seems to have strong interest. Part of that is probably due to the fact that they are better players and are covered more closely.
