    I know we have yet to sign anyone from the class of ’13 but that hasn’t stopped the staff from offering a scholarship to a 2014 big man according to Alex Kline.

    Alex Kline ‏ @TheRecruitScoop
    Lehigh has offered Josh Sharma, a 2014 big man from Mass Rivals (MA), per his coach. This is his first scholarship.

    This is the first 2014 offer that I am aware of and will be the first name on our 2014 list. Although this is Sharma first scholarship let’s remember he just finished his sophomore high school season and a little internet research makes it look like he could well blow up into a big time prospect. Maybe there is an advantage in being his first offer…


    Alec Brennan
    Clayton Custer
    Tyler Lydon
    Sean O’Mara
    Kendall Rollins
    Josh Sharma, 6’9 PF/C (MA) OFFER
    Gavin Skelly, 6’8 PF (OH)
    Jeff Spellman
    Reid Travis OFFER

    Another name via twitter, Kendall Rollins:

    Talked to #IndianaState, #Purdue, #MiamiOH, #Lehigh, and #WesternIllinois these past two days



    Another person of interest

    ◦Gavin Skelly – ’14 Cleveland Westlake PF/C: Earlier in the week, Skelly’s AAU coach Brian Bishop reported that the athletic 6’8 prospect has received offers this spring from Cleveland State, Akron, Kent State, Toledo, and Miami (OH). In addition to those schools, Skelly also has interest from Boston College, Wright State, Purdue, Yale, Ball State, and Lehigh.

    Sean O’Mara – http://www.umhoops.com/2012/06/16/recruiting-roundup-offer-day-bates-diop-talks-michigan-offer-more/

    both have high major offers already, so I would put them into the longshot category



    Back from vacation..now trying to catch up on Lehigh happenings.

    Add this name Reid Travis

    Minnesota offered 2014 DeLaSalle’s Reid Travis. He also picked up offers from Washington State, Lehigh & Harvard & heard from USC & Stanford



    Spencer Weisz (Sports U) – Weisz showed off his quickness and lockdown defense against the NJ Playaz, answering some questions about his overall talent. I really like his shooting ability along with great defense. I said this to some scouts, Spencer Weisz may be the best defender at this tournament. His basketball I.Q. is just uncanny, which is part of the reason why I’m very high on him. He has been watched by Bucknell, Brown, Colgate (who watched him today), Columbia, Dartmouth, Holy Cross, Lafayette, Lehigh, Northwestern, Penn, Princeton, and Yale. He will enter senior season at Seton Hall Prep next season.



    Here is another offer for 2014

    Delshon Strickland SG 6-4



    Iowa Mountain Hawk

    More in-roads into Iowa?   Sounds like Lehigh is recruiting a couple of players from Dubuque, IA.  Kyle Haber, 6’7 SG and Seth Bonifas, 6’9 C.  Both players play for Dubuque Senior High School and for the Iowa Barnstormers in AAU.

    Bonifas has held an offer from Iowa since 9th grade and Haber holds an offer from Albany.



    Sean O’Mara was just extended an offer

    I like the fact that Reed is not afraid to mix it up a little with the big boys. I’ll admit that the success may not be high but one never knows when the combination of academics and athletics that Lehigh offers may be just what he is looking for. CJ has shown that one can go to Lehigh and get the hype necessary to get to the next level.
