    Thanks SBum, I’m excited for the future, but still want to see us add atleast 1 more name to 2013!!!

     

    What are your thoughts on who might still be around/interested/good fit for LU for 13?

    Hey Hoops, I answered your question and updated the ’13 thread to keep things tidy.  Long story short, the only legit big guy still uncommitted who know held an LU offer at one time is Michael Owona, and I’d love to have him.  Maybe a late blooming sr big?

    Things have been pretty quiet on the 2014 recruiting front, but here is a tidbit to take the mind off the injury bug that has hit CJ, Devon, and Shane.

    Judging from highlight clips alone Spellman is a stud and super athletic and fun to watch.  At this juncture it is easy to say that I’d love to have him, but I know he is getting recruited pretty heavily and attended a recent BC home game right behind the BC bench.  Looks like he will have his choice of a few high major offers and a slew of Northeast mid majors.  And he’s a coach’s son I belive.

    This article mentions an offer from Lehigh for Peyton Aldridge (although the article says he is a senior when in fact he is a junior).  The original article plus some more Peyton Aldridge links below.

    Well, we managed to land Tim Kempton’s namesake this year. Apparently we have offered Lindsey Hunter IV for 2014

    Another name with LU interest:

    ZUMWALT NORTH’S GLOTTA HAS TWO OFFERS

    High-scoring Fort Zumwalt North junior combo guard Chaz Glotta has attracted plenty of early recruiting interest and already holds two Division I offers, from Cornell and Northern Colorado.

    A 6-1 guard, Glotta was a third-team All-Metro selection this winter when he led the area in scoring at 26 points per game and also averaged 4.3 rebounds, 4.1 steals and 2.4 assists.

    The Panthers went 22-6 and won conference and district titles.

    Zumwalt North coach Charles Glotta, Chaz’s father, reported Chaz also has interest from St. Louis University, Southern Illinois, SIU Edwardsville, Drake, Lehigh, Yale and Lipscomb University.

    Now that we are officially in 2014 recruiting season, let’s recap.
    In 2014, we will likely have the following members on our roster:
    Guards/Wings….Sr. Schaefer,Cvrkalj, Soph, Carter (assume medical redshirt),Price,Simelton, Glover, Renninger
    Forwards/Centers….Baltimore Jr. Chuku, Goldsborough Soph, Kempton, Whitfield

    Assuming Renninger remains a preferred walk-on, although that may change based on performance, that would mean that there ar 3 scholarships available
    with 4 bigs and 7 guards already accounted for.
    What is the strategy? Go with the best available regardless of size? Target more bigs next year? Resign ourselves to playing small most of the time?
    Just some items for discussion.

    If only I could count. Make that 5 bigs and 7 guards with only 2 scholarships available. Now it seems apparent that there may not be any desperate needs and we look for the best players available.
