This may be the ultimate throw of the dice. Injuries have kept him well under the radar although he had several offers after his junior year. It will be very interesting to see how well he plays with Brewster Academy this year.
All the articles say he is in the class of 2015. So he apparently reclassified after the injury. No reviews on the major recruiting sites, but plenty of mid-major offers, though nothing from A10 or higher. Certainly a big dude. Welcome to Lehigh Jack Lieb!
added later: Thank you TMH. Correct info is he’s prepping this year, not-reclassified.
Really excited about this commitment for a few reasons. Lieb has a solid list of mid major offers, most of which came in the spring AFTER the acl injury – so I think that is a real positive. Also, the fact that he is doing a PG year at Brewster is huge. It’s another year for physical development and also playing (and practicing) against top notch competition. One of the major concerns in the 15-16 season was the frontcourt depth after JG and JC graduate. The additions of Andree and Lieb behind Sedore and Holba means a significant increase in the likelihood at least a pair of them develop well. Add in the fact that Lieb will be a sophomore age wise, and coming off great prep competition – he should be more ready than most bigs to contribute early which will be needed. Very excited to track his PG year at Brewster.
