    FYI watched some ernst tapes and he may be the prototypical 4 man for us…plays to and through contact, likes to an can finish at and above the rim, and possesses some post offensive skills with back to the basket. Iowa has treated us well of late, here is hoping gabe or corey can help sell him .

    Can’t find a date on Ernst visit either, but agree with Hoops that he seems like a nice pick-up. Overall, I like the quality of the forwards that are visiting this spring, and hopefully one of them pops for Lehigh soon. Like that Ernst has a little more inside to his game than some of the other guys and could come in with a guy like Navigato or Hibbitts and fill a different role.

    I wouldn’t read much (at all) into it, but Hibbitts aau program tweeted that he had a “great” visit to Lehigh.

    Little update on Pointer from a Clemson site. Not a good quote at the end, but it does go against the fact that he only has two officials scheduled so far and one is to Lehigh:

    “My top schools are Clemson, Winthrop, Wichita State (and) Southern Mississippi,” Pointer said.

    Pretty exciting update on Malek Harwell who I am super high on. Some quotes below from a Rivals article. I kind of thought we were out of the running for Harwell, so I’m glad to see he is still considering Lehigh:

    “Boise State, Lehigh, Colorado, Portland, Utah State, San Francisco have all offered, and California has been calling. I’m open to everybody still, but I’ve tried to cut it down a little bit. I’ve still got Colorado, Boise State, Lehigh, San Francisco and Portland for now.”

    Lehigh’s coaching staff has also done a very good job of keeping in contact with Harwell. “I like Lehigh a lot. They seem like an Ivy League school, but they aren’t. I like [assistant] coach [Ryan] Krueger. He’s been the one recruiting me the most. I’m really a big fan of the coaches that stay in contact and recruit me as a priority and build a relationship with me. I put Lehigh on there for that reason. They said they see me as a C.J. McCollum coming in.”

    “I want to decide before high school season. I’m going to take my visits and probably decide right after my visits. I’m definitely going to take Boise State, Lehigh and Colorado visits. I’m just looking for a school where I can fit in and impact it right away. I want to go somewhere I have a great relationship with the coaches. I’ve been looking up and studying what the programs are about. I think my best skill is my shooting and both Boise State and Lehigh are known for their shooters, so those would be good fits for me.”

    Nice catch Rich. First time seeing Jech’s name for me. He has three official visits lined up so far for the fall (Albany, North Dakota State, and U of South Dakota). Nine offers according to VC.

    Quick update on Holba is in Bethlehem this weekend:

    http://www.indystar.com/story/recruiting-central/2014/09/03/holba-one-of-top-in-state-players-in-2015-class/15053391/

    Sounds like Bucknell was right in the mix, but they have now filled their need for a forward with Nate Sestina. Princeton has been recruiting very well recently, and doesn’t have a forward in this class, however they brought in 3 different 3/4 types last year. Reportedly had offers from some BCS schools (Penn State & Providence offered in April), but they seem to be no longer in the running likely because of commitments by other players.
