I know it's been quiet on here lately, but that will hopefully be changing shortly. Over the past few days we had some interesting developments and a Philly senior making his college choice.
Earlier in the day, Roman Catholic senior forward Junior Fortunat made his college choice. Junior will be attending Rider in the fall. I did a piece on Junior over the winter (link here). I will be speaking again with Junior tomorrow, so look for a new article here either tomorrow or Thursday.
On Monday, George Washington head coach Karl Hobbs was fired after ten years at the Atlantic 10 school. With the firing, it is possible that the recruitment of Imhotep (PA) senior Erik Copes will reopen. Copes was a significant signing for the Colonials, and would certainly have all sorts of recruiting attention if he reopened everything.
I was able to catch up with Northfield Mount Hermon (MA) head coach John Carroll earlier today. A more in-depth article will be up later in the week, but he did inform me that SJU head coach Phil Martelli was there last week watching two of his juniors. Evan Cummins, a 6'8 forward that has been on the SJU radar for quite some time was the one name. SJU, Notre Dame, Stanford, Harvard, and Boston University are among the schools pursuing Evan. The other player that Martelli was looking at was 6'8 forward Ethan O'Day. Again, check back later this week for an article on the two junior forwards.
