    While nothing to add re: the names mentioned above, I thought I’d tip my hat to the LU Coaching Staff for their tireless efforts in recruiting talent from across the country and now Canada (Stefan Crvkalj). To gain a fuller appreciation for what goes into a nationwide search for talent, I’d recommend to all the May 16th edition of Sports Illustrated and the tales of Washington Husky Assistant Coach, Raphael Chillious.

    LU lost out on John Ross Glover who picked Lipscomb. He said he wanted to play regionally (he’s from Tennessee). Also, "Glover said there was no one thing that put Lipscomb over the top of the other programs he was considering, it was a combination with the coaches, facilities and atmosphere. He did want to find a program to win."

    Hope he wasn’t referencing the Lehigh facilities and atmosphere (or lack thereof!) as reasons for not coming to Bethlehem.

    Another offer to add as well:

    Sanjay Lumpkin – http://rivals.yahoo.com/olemiss/basketb … kin-112364

    We’ve also offered Zach Stahl along with Wofford, and Nebraska-Omaha.

    It doesn’t sound too promising though, as Zach anticipates an offer from Wisconsin, and says he would "definitely sign early if it was the right offer…" And he already has our offer. He also hasn’t even decided if he will visit east coast schools.

    Another schollie offer. This one to Brett Bisping:

    Funny enough, the bottom of the article also includes a brief update on former LU player Mitch Gilfillan, although the journalist makes no link between the two.

    Offer extended to Nathan Dieudonne and he is visiting Bethlehem on Sep 9:

    He’ll likely be taking in the Lehigh-UNH football game so hopefully there is a spirited crowd and the football team can put on a show.

    Very little info on this kid. The verbal was first reported by the Washington Post and then picked up on ESPN and twitter. It looks like he was on a list of visiting student athletes for the James Madison homecoming football game. So far I haven’t seen any lists of other offers or who else was recruiting him.

    His high school, St. Stephens & St. Agnes, is in the same conference where I played high school ball in D.C (’04 h.s. grad). Good conference with a few high major players every year and usually a handful more D1 level kids sprinkled throughout the league.

    Goldsborough is a legit 6’6/6’7" live bodied 4 man. Has a little faceup game around the FT line and a back to basket post game. Very athletic and can block shots. Not a trmendously heavy kid and would be described as a bit "light in the pants" compared to a lot of 4 men. Very mobile and should be able to flourish in a more uptempo style we’ve been moving towards in the past couple years. He held over 10 offers from what I hear from sources pretty close to him. Very good student also. He should be a good player in the PL.

    Thanks for the info DJC. Any idea who some of those other offers were from?

    Looks like we just landed another one:

    http://espn.go.com/college-sports/baske … zach-stahl

    I’m pretty excited about Stahl. Hopkins is a very good program, perenially one of the top in the Midwest (3 time defending state champ), and sends lots of players on to excellent college careers. Their PG this year was another target of ours, Siyani Chambers, who just commited to Harvard. They finished last year 14th in the country according to USA Today and sent players to University of Minn and Northern Iowa. Stahl was the 3rd or 4th option last year, so we should expect his production to take a big jump this year.

    He picked LU over other confirmed offers from: Loyola (Ill.), Wofford, University of Nebraska at Omaha. Not sure if there were more. I was not too optimistic about Stahl as he seemed to be holding out for either Wisconsin (he visited in July) or Nebraska, but it looks like we landed him. Big week recruiting wise.

    Assuming we have 3 scholarships to offer for the high school class of 2012 (losing Maneri, Adams, and Hamilton) – we have one scholarship left.

    I would think that for the sake of balance, the staff would like to add a perimeter player to this class, but you never know. Goldsborough sounds like a true 4, and Stahl as a 3/4 hybrid, so a guard would make sense. But again, we aren’t graduating any guards this year, so maybe the staff just wants to focus on size after taking 2 perimeter players in last years class.

    It will also be interesting if we wrap this class up this fall and use the winter to focus solely on 2013, or if we hold one of the scholarships until springtime and see if anyone emerges.

    Stabler – what is this term balance you speak of?! 5 of last 6 schollies are 6’6 and under, mccarthy only big in last two years. We need size, even with Cj being a senior we have plenty of guards especially if bailey is playing again. I’d like a legit power forward/center to add for next year, replace the size we lost in adams/maneri.

    FYI on stahl- my dads buddy runs a big time aau program and played stahls howard pulley team this summer, said stahl is more slasher then scorer, but definitely a 3 not a 4.

    Also – next yr finale for cj, rather get another big to add to mix for depth and help against bigger schools when we run the tourney!
