    Hunter was a preferred walk-on from Emmaus, here in the Lehigh Valley. Arguably the best high school player in the Valley his senior year. Apparently seeing he would never get playing time at Lehigh, he transferred to a Div. 3 school after one year. Interesting that his situation brought the name Gray into the thread. He was also from Emmaus, but several years earlier. Also graduated from Emmaus, in 2003 (or there about) but was a rather unheralded 6’10” high school player. But at this height he got a ride from Pitt. There he grew to 7′ & developed into a first round NBA type player by junior year. But he blew the first round with a really poor performance in the NCAA tournament his senior year. He went in the second round in the 2007 NBA draft and spent 7 years with four teams as a backup center (career 12 min/game). One of a very few (if any) originally from the Lehigh Valley to make the NBA, ever. For his time as a backup center: $ 12,000,000 plus……..not bad money to mostly sit on the bench.

    Don’t believe iorio was offered yet. I follow parkland and nothing was said nor did he announce on Twitter. I may be wrong Tho. Great player. Outside touch. Big kid. Love his game

    I’m not so sure Gray was unheralded. He was the Gatorade Player of the Year in PA and 1st team AS.

    Got caught up on the 2016 sheet; let me know if you see the need for changes.

    Discovered that Iorio is 2017, so I broke down and started a 2017 sheet too. Combed through what we had here on the board; let me know if I missed anything.

    I’ll add that link to our 2017 thread as well.

    I think our 2016 list is likely to start getting thinned out pretty quickly. With the big AAU events (Peach Jam, etc.) going on, there is a LOT of recruiting action happening. Several of the guys I’ve been excited about are getting new, high-profile attention it seems – Marfo, Williams, Fornes, and PGs. Fingers crossed.

    Appears that we have a MAJOR off-season setback. I’m guessing that our “upside” just took a serious hit. Next season looks a lot like last season, imo.

    Let’s wait and see what the actual situation is with Matt. Nothing on twitter by him or any of his HS friends.
