Friday's Odds and Ends

-The spring dead period for recruiting ends today, which means that college coaches are able to meet in person once again with recruits. There are a number of the nation's elite players still unsigned, so it is sure to be a hectic travel day for coaches as they look to sure up their rosters for next year.

-Ronald Roberts, the 6'7 senior from Saint Peter's Prep who received his released from Saint John's earlier this week, is one of those players that coaches are certain to be checking in on. I spoke with Roberts' high school coach, Mike Kelly, yesterday about his recruitment. Kelly told me that there are a number of major schools involved and that "Coach Martelli is right in the thick of things," which should please Hawk fans. I will continue to update the situation if and when news breaks.

-While Saint Joseph's commitments CJ Aiken and Langston Galloway were winning state titles with their teams, their future teammate, Daryus Quarles, was nothing more than a hyper-talented cheerleader on the Paulsboro bench. After transferring back home to Paulsboro from Life Center Academy last March, Quarles had a sit a state-mandated 365 days before playing again. Unfortunately, his team's season ended days before he would have become eligible. I have heard from people close to the situation that Quarles will be suiting up this coming Tuesday, April 20th, at the Donofrio Classic in Conshohocken for the Keystone Blazers. For those interested, this will be a chance to see Quarles in action. I will be on hand Tuesday night and a recap will be posted later that evening.

-The next week or so could be an interesting and exciting time on Hawk Hill, so continue to check back for updates.
