Quote from above:
And not that he is a big bodied center, but I followed this kid a bit the last year or two and he would be so solid in the PL, Donovon Jack, from Reading PA. Legit 6’9 though, nice body that will put on probably 30 pounds in the next 4 years, and extremely mobile with nice touch. Wants to play in up tempo system and since he is reading kid, if I’m reed, I load up the LU caravan tomorrow morning with CJ, Gabe and Mackey and my assistants with that scholarship offer and give it to him on the spot with a dvd of Duke win. Video below of his talents and espn scouting profile.
Bison137 – I believe you guys were in on him, any additional information on this kid, I think you guys offered right? Any thoughts on his talents, think he could decommit at all?

When Jack committed to Duquesne, he said his final five were Duq, St. Joes, St. Bona, Belmont, and Davidson. Lafayette recruited him very hard but was apparently not a finalist.
As for Bucknell, they apparently made him an offer very early in the game. The reason it was withdrawn is not who the competition was but rather that Bucknell’s last available scholarship was spoken for at the end of March 2011 when PF Dominic Hoffman committed. That was long before Jack even had most of his scholarship offers.
P.S. I wouldn’t recommend that caravan with all the assistants and the top players. There would be so many NCAA violations -perhaps four – that LU would probably be required to stop recruiting him and would probably be penalized a scholarship by the NCAA.
