Last July, I wrote an article about a player still relatively under the radar who had just picked up an offer from Saint Joseph's. That player, Northfield Mount Hermon's Evan Cummins, received significant attention from schools of all levels in the year since the Hawks made him an offer. Evan's recruitment came to an end on Tuesday, when he made his decision to play in the Ivy League for Tommy Amaker at Harvard.
Northfield Mount Hermon coach John Carroll confirmed Evan's commitment to me yesterday, saying that Evan did a good job with the recruiting process. He knew what he was looking for in a college and ultimately selected the best overall fit. Evan committed to Harvard over a number of other offers from wide-ranging conferences. Saint Joseph's, Davidson, Notre Dame, Northwestern, and others were under consideration by the 6'8 forward.
Although Evan is now off the board, his frontcourt teammate at NMH, Ethan O'Day, is another player with recruiting interest from Saint Joseph's. I will continue to track his recruitment and visit schedule over the summer.
