Nothing here really warrants an article in and of itself, so here's just a collection of random bits of information. I'm in the process of trying to piece together some interviews and other articles.
This Sunday, Newark Eastside will be playing West Catholic at Villanova. Why is that worth mentioning? Newark Eastside stars some players that are getting looks from the SJU coaching staff, including junior Tariq Carey and sophomore Will Joyce. I posted an article at the end of November about Carey and Joyce. Newark Eastside got a visit from Hawk head coach Phil Martelli the day after his team beat Rutgers at the Palestra. Check out the article here .
On the high school front, another good game in the coming week is next Monday at Villanova University. Friends' Central will be taking on Imhotep Charter. Friends' Central stars junior forward Amile Jefferson, who is being recruited heavily by Duke, Villanova, Georgetown, and a plethora of others. They also have a terrific tandem of guards in unsigned senior Devin Coleman and sophomore Karon Davis. Imhotep is one of the best squads in Philadelphia. Period. They have a strong inside game with George Washington commit Erik Copes, who is a steal for the Colonials. Imhotep also has Ameen Tanksley and David Appolon, in addition to Brandon Austin, a sophomore who is going to be a star.
Two high school players from the PA/NJ area seem to no longer have the Hawks on their college lists. According to Alex Kline, Myles Davis has narrowed his list down to Villanova, Xavier, and Pitt. Read it here . Another 2012 guard, Life Center Academy's (NJ)Andre Horne, has also provided an update in his recruitment. On NJHoops, he mentioned Florida, Siena, Temple, Virginia Tech, Rider, Iona, Northeastern, and several others as the schools actively recruiting him.
Check back over the coming days for some (hopefully) new information.
