Perez to Harvard; holding breath re: Cashaw.September 26, 2014 at 10:11 pm #15775
Koontz is probably on his way, just a layover in AtlantaSeptember 27, 2014 at 9:57 pm #15790
We got our 2nd commit today, it seems! Word is that Kyle Leufroy has given us his verbal. I had not done any homework on him – snuck up on me! Looks like he’s rated 3-star on a couple of sites.
I’m going to assume we got the 2-guard we were after – so now onto a 4!September 27, 2014 at 10:04 pm #15791
Nice,combo from Cal. No expert but liked his video from last yr. Now for Hibbetts:)September 27, 2014 at 10:22 pm #15793
I met Koontz in the stands of Goodman today, seems like a really nice kid and having a blast on campus!September 28, 2014 at 12:20 am #15798
Very exciting commitment from Kyle Leufroy today. Three stars on all three of Scout, Rivals, and ESPN. Had offers from a handful of west coast mid majors and BU. But check out these tweets from various analysts:
Corey Evans @coreyevans_10 4h
As reported by @JoshGershon, big time get for Lehigh with commitment from Kyle Leufroy. Patriot League program building something

Huge pickup for #Lehigh in Kyle Leufroy. Versatile guard can play on and off ball. Scorer from all three levels that can really pass too.
I think he looks really good on video and has been labeled as “under-recruited” for awhile. Probably means Cashaw and Pointer are out, but that was already seemed quite likely, especially with Pointer.September 30, 2014 at 1:19 pm #15821
Per twitter, Cashaw will announce commitment this evening.September 30, 2014 at 2:12 pm #15823
Interesting weekend on the recruiting front. Leufroy commits to Lehigh, even though I don’t believe he has been on campus yet (although I assume he will take an official this fall) and before Pointer or Cashaw make their decisions. The same weekend, Wichita State and Clemson both land other point guards, potentially taking away two of Pointer’s most likely landing spots. It shows how many moving parts there are in the system with no school or player wanting to end up the odd one out in musical chairs.
I assume the Leufroy commitment means Cashaw and Pointer are likely no longer on the radar, assuming Lehigh is focused on a big for the last spot in the class. The caveat being if Hoops is right and there are actually two available scholarships for a big and another player.September 30, 2014 at 2:51 pm #15825
Yup, agreed. If we’ve only got 1 left, I’m certainly hoping it will be a PF.September 30, 2014 at 11:47 pm #15828
Looks like Cashaw committed to Rice.October 2, 2014 at 5:34 pm #15850
Very interesting to see Pointer end up at College of Charleston. My guess is the offers at Clemson and Wichita State dried up after they had other guards commit. I thought Ole Miss was in play too, so very surprised to see CoC swoop in during the last few weeks. I also wonder if Pointer indicated to Lehigh he was going another direction, and that’s when Leufroy committed – or if it was first come first serve between Pointer, Cashaw, and Leufroy. So many moving parts to the game. Also, Pointer must not have loved Wichita State or Lehigh (or he wasn’t the first option at WSU) if he was hesitant to pick either on his visits.
Pretty pleased with two three star guys in Holba and Leufroy. Let’s get a banger and call it a class.October 2, 2014 at 6:04 pm #15851
Totally agreed, SBum! I’m happy with what we’re seeing in this class so far. One wide body, and I’m thrilled!
I can’t help but wonder if our staff had Leufroy ahead of Cashaw, and that contributed to Cashaw’s decision?October 2, 2014 at 9:38 pm #15852
Verbal Commits seems to think McCaskill and/or Glover are on scholarship, that we are using 13, and that we have no more room in 2015. There’s really no way to be sure until next year or we get another commitment?October 2, 2014 at 10:04 pm #15853
Since we are losing three scholarship guys at the end of this year (Baltimore, Schaefer, and Stefan), the assumption is we have at least 1 left. McCaskill has been referred to explicitly by Reed as a walk-on (http://lehighsports.com/news/2014/6/5/MBB_0605145200.aspx?path=mbball) so Verbal Commits has at least that wrong. I think JRG is on scholarship, others on the board aren’t sure. We have never seen confirmation either way. I do think it is safe to assume that we have at least one more scholarship available for the class of 2015.October 3, 2014 at 12:16 am #15854
There’s a lot to like about Verbal Commits, but their scholly numbers are not one of them. We know FAR more here than they do. I’ve found several mistakes there about status. And they continue to list AP as a PG – even after I submitted a correction. Sheesh!!!
