While at Cornell he averaged 4.3 points per game, appearing in 27 games for just under 10 minutes of action per game.
Cornell's incoming basketball recruiting class is led by its USC transfer, Collin Robinson, pictured here...
We decided to update our recruiting rankings from April due to the addition of a few late commitments around the Ivy League.
First, we moved Cornell up to #2 and dropped Yale down to #3 after Cornell received a commitment from the ultra-athletic junior college player, Andre Wilkins. We also dropped Princeton to #8 and moved Harvard upwards into the #7 position after the Crimson nabbed former Indiana Hoosier, Cem Dinc. We still think Cornell's Collin Robinson is the top incoming recruit in the Ivy League, while Penn's Harrison Gaines is the top true freshman recruit.
We especially love Cornell's late pick-up of Andre Wilkins. He is the Big Red's answer to Penn's Remy Cofield and Don Monckton. All three are known as good athletes with hops. Wilkins, however, may be the toughest of the three with the best vertical leap. He also brings a year of JuCo experience, having played with three other Division I recruits on his Blinn College team.
Cornell's class has as much potential to emerge as the top class as Penn's. In addition to Wilkins, Collin Robinson appears to be a future All Ivy Leaguer, while Adam Wire and Jeff Foote, are somewhat unknown quantities. The Cornell staff seem excited about both players.
Here is our ranking of incoming recruiting classes for players eligible in 2007-2008.

Andrew "Big Game" Naeve (Cornell '07), had 8 points and 4 rebounds on June 27th in a Iowa Prime Time Summer League game, helping Team Jill Armstrong defeat Dan Wiese Marketing 102-91. Naeve's team is 4-0 in summer league play.
Naeve was a 2nd Team All-Ivy League selection in 2006-2007. He averaged 10.5 points and 7.6 rebounds per game his senior year and received a B.S. in Applied Economics and Management from Cornell's College of Agriculture & Life Sciences, the "host college" of Cornell's Business School.
It is not clear yet as to whether Naeve will pursue a basketball playing career overseas or if he will enter the business world. Should he choose the latter, he should be proud to know that Newsweek ranked Cornell the 10th best Undergraduate Business Program in the United States while U.S. News & World Report ranked Cornell #11 nationally for undergraduate business programs.

When Collin Robinson announced his decision to transfer from the University of Southern California to Cornell during the spring of 2006, fans around the Ivy League certainly took notice. Of course, it is not typical for a player from the Pac 10 to transfer to the Ivy League. However, with the exception of Cornell's annual Red-White intersquad scrimmage, where the 6'0" Robinson scored 14 points, Robinson had to sit out the entire 2006-2007 season due to NCAA transfer restrictions. Accordingly, Robinson's new Cornell teammates, opponents, the fans, and the media did not really get to see what he could do in a game situation.
When Cornell toured
We previosuly posted a story on his recruitment to Cornell.
In the event Jason Hartford remains injured (broken wrist/broken foot) or is ruled ineligible by the Ivy League due to academic requirements, look for Cornell Head Coach Steve Donahue to slide 6'7" 240 lb sophomore Alex Tyler into the starting center position, while junior 6'7" Brian Kreefer (pictured above) moves into the starting power forward position. Both players were part-time starters last season and bring good experience. Pete Reynolds, a 6'8" sophomore, would rotate in for both power forward and center off the bench until seven-footer, Jeff Foote joins the team in December as a true center. Freshman Adam Wire (6'6") and JuCo transfer Andre Wilkins (6'4"), both have the toughness, athleticism and skill set to play undersized power forward roles as well. Aaron Richardson-Osgood, a 6'9" freshman is another big body available further down the bench.

Wilkins is a left-handed slasher, known for his athleticism and leaping ability. He is also a physical rebounder and is strong finishing around the basket. He averaged 8.3 points and 7.5 rebounds while shooting 63 percent from the field as a freshman at Blinn, which boasted four division I recruits. He originally committed to the College of Charleston prior to enrolling at Blinn, but a coaching change altered his plans. Other schools that "offered" Wilkins out of high school included Brown (then coached by current Penn head coach Glen Miller) and Central Connecticut State. C of C lost in the Southern Conference Championship game last year, finishing 22-11 overall. Central Connecticut played in the NCAA Tournament, finishing 22-12.
Andrew Naeve (Cornell '07), a 6'10" 240 lb center has been playing in the Iowa Prime Time Summer League since returning back to his home state following his graduation from Cornell. On June 18, his Jill Armstrong Team defeated Hodge Construction 112-100. Naeve finished with a respectable 12 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists. In his second game on June 20th, Jill Armstong knocked of Deli Mart 107-81. Naeve struggled throughout the game, going 0-10 from the floor, but finished with 2 points and 3 rebounds. On June 25, Jill Armstong moved to 3-0 on the season with a convincing 104-86 win over Sportswear. Naeve finished with 4 points and 5 rebounds.
Andrew and his Jill Armstong team return to action tonight.

"Great kid and a very fundamental player. I have seen him play several times and he can do a lot of things well. He is a guy who fills up the stat sheet. I don't know what kind of system Cornell uses but I think Adam is a 3 in college. He can defend, rebound, very smart, and very fundamental. I am from
and he reminds me of players from that state. He has had a very good HS coach to teach him the game. I think you will be very happy- not sure who else recruited him in NC, but it is their loss." Indiana
“Cornell is just a great school to go to,” Wire said. “When I went up to visit, I liked a lot about it. They made me feel comfortable from the start. Just the type of basketball they play, it sounds like I could fit in well with the system.” His head coach, Mike Apple described Wire to the Ithaca Journal as a strong all-around player who slipped under the Division I recruiting radar.
An ACL injury sidelined him during his sophomore year of high school, and he transferred to Pinecrest during the middle of the 2005-06 school year from West Bend High in
Apple said Wire is a strong, physical player with very good passing skills who finished runner-up for the conference's Most Valuable Player award behind Jack Britt guard C.J. Williams, a

Jeff Aubry (Cornell '99), a 6’10” 260 lb. center is continuing his professional basketball career with Leones de Ponce of Puerto Rico. Prior to moving to the Puerto Rican pro league during November 2006, Aubry played with the Miami Tropics, a new team in the American Basketball Association. Best known for his rebounding and shot-blocking abilities, Aubry also played professionally in
As a junior at Cornell he averaged 8.9 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks. As a senior, he averaged 10.5 points on 54-percent shooting, adding 8.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks. And for his career, he shot over 50 percent and averaged 1.9 blocks. Aubry has ties to
Cornell dropped a pair of games during 2006-2007 to Ivy Champion Penn and also lost a game in a season-split series with 2nd place Yale. But one other team dealt Cornell a pair of losses.
In the end, Cornell finished the 2006-2007 season with a 9-5 Ivy League record and 3rd place finish, but the Big Red could have finished higher in the standings if not for the two painful losses at the hands of the Harvard Crimson (5-9 Ivy, 6th place).
It is not clear why Harvard was so successful against Cornell last year. Nevertheless, the Big Red will have to take care of business against lower division Ivy teams like the Crimson if Cornell expects to finish on top of the Ivy in 2007-2008. Fortunately, Jim Goffredo will not be back.

Hartford now returns to Cornell as a 5th year player and as a virtual unknown quantity around the Ivy League. If Hartford can recover in time for the 2007-2008 season opener, he could emerge as the Ivy League's premier low post player-- competing for the honor with the likes of Columbia's John Baumann and Ben Nwachuku, Harvard's Evan Harris, Yale's Matt Kyle and Princeton's Zach Finley.
During 2005-2006-- Hartford showed signs of Ivy League Player of the Year potential, scoring in double figures in eight games and scoring at least 16 points in three games. On the year, he averaged 7.7 points and 3.8 rebounds in just 19 minutes of action per game in 21 appearances, 20 of which were off the bench. He shot 56% from the floor and 12/26 from three-point territory, making him a multi-dimensional threat to defenses.
For right now, Cornell can only wait and see if Hartford's foot heals enough to allow him to play healthy in the upcoming year.
The road to the Ivy League Championship in 2007-2008 goes through the defending champs, the Penn Quakers. We now look back at the Big Red's frustration with the Quakers during 2006-2007.
In their first meeting on January 12, 2007, Penn knocked off Cornell 74-56 in Ithaca. See game video highlights here. The video is archived on a a Penn fan's website. On February 17, 2007, Cornell visited Penn in Philadelphia, but the Big Red unable to pull off the upset, losing 83-71. See game video highlights here of the game at Penn.
The video clips were edited to display primarily the highlights from the Penn team, but both videos (less than 10 minutes in length each), showcase some nice footage of Cornell's Ryan Wittman, Geoff Reeves, Andrew Naeve, Alex Tyler and Louis Dale.

From Jane and Finch to Ivy League
After living in a tough
BY MICHAEL GRANGE, June 23, 2007Andre Wilkins knows life at the intersection of Jane and Finch in northwest Toronto. He's heard the gunfire. He knows what it means to live in a place divided, where venturing to the "wrong" housing complex or crossing the street can earn you a beat down or worse. He's even been caught up in the ripple effect of crime and suspicion and been questioned by police for nothing more than being young, male and black.
But later this summer, Andre Wilkins will be leaving that behind, at least for now. The 6-foot-5 20-year-old will be enrolling at one of the most prestigious schools in North America as an eagerly anticipated addition to the basketball program at Cornell University.
His plan is to earn a degree in developmental sociology, embark on a career in teaching or social work and come right back home to help others find their path.
"It's going to be different," said Wilkins, who is preparing for the leap to Cornell with regular morning workouts at Emery Collegiate Institute and a job running the summer camps at the Christian Centre Church. "I've never been in a place where someone's mom is a doctor and someone's dad is a lawyer or whatever. But I've worked for it. It's a challenge, but I think I'm ready."
It's a sharp transition. Instead of being worried whether the colours of his clothes catch the eye of the Crips or the Bloods, the loose gang affiliations that have staked out their territories at home, he'll be playing for the Big Red in Ithaca, N.Y., knocking heads against the likes of Harvard, Yale and Princeton for Ancient Eight supremacy and a chance to play in the National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament.
It's not an athletic scholarship - Ivy League schools don't provide them - but Wilkins's academic standing (an 89-per-cent average leaving high school and a 3.5 grade-point average after a year at junior college in Texas) and economic situation qualify him for a financial-aid package worth $45,000 (U.S.) a year.
The road from Jane and Finch to the Ivy League is at the very least the road less travelled. For a basketball player, it might the road never travelled, at least that anyone can remember.
"I've had lots of good players and lots of guys go to play Division I," said Bob Maydo, who coached Wilkins at Emery Collegiate and has spent 30 years teaching and coaching in some of Toronto's toughest neighbourhoods. "But I've never had a guy go to play at an Ivy League school."
Not surprisingly as those close to him to try to reverse-engineer how Wilkins got from here to there, no one can say for sure.
The obstacles are obvious, but on reflection, some of the perceived obstacles have been opportunities, too. He grew up in a Toronto Community Housing Corp. building at 4400 Jane St., just north of Finch Avenue. But across the street was the Driftwood Community Centre, where he played as much basketball as there was to play. Not far was his church.
Enrolling at Emery meant playing for coach Maydo, who helped develop the likes of Denham Brown and Phil Dixon, two of the best players the city of Toronto has ever produced.
"How do explain Andre? I'm baffled myself," said his mother, Ermin Kelley-Wright, who works for a small publishing company while raising Andre and his younger brother, Trevon, as a single parent in recent years after splitting with Andre's father. "In a good way, he's stood on his own since kindergarten. I always got rave reports from his teachers about his work, he always did well with his school, and I got lucky because he was interested in sports and that helped and he enjoyed being involved in church and that helped and we lived across from the community centre and that helped. Everyone has done their little part."
Even some of the rougher elements have contributed to keeping Wilkins on the straight and narrow, though it's unlikely they could have imagined it would lead to a school that counts both Toronto Raptors minority owner Larry Tanenbaum and club president Bryan Colangelo as graduates.
"When I was 16 or 17, I was looking for a job," Wilkins said. "I mean, I applied for everything. I couldn't get a job at McDonalds. I thought about [street life] for like a day, it's tempting sometimes. You look at the money the clothes, the cars. But for all you might get in a week, in five years you might be in jail or worse. It's not worth it."
He's not sure they would have him anyway. "They [the gang element] see what I'm about and what I'm doing and they tell me to keep doing what I'm doing," he said. "They tell me that they want to get out of [the life] and they can't because they can't get a job or they have a kid. That encourages me also."
But it's hard to avoid trouble some times. He's familiar with Junior Cadougan, another talented player from the neighbourhood. Two summers ago, Cadougan's brother Shaquan, who was 4, was wounded in a drive-by shooting. Just this week, two teenagers were shot while playing basketball at an outdoor court just south of where Wilkins lives.
The death of 15-year-old Jordan Manners - gunned down in the hallway of his high school - has turned the temperature up even more.
In the aftermath of the shooting on May 23, Wilkins was standing in front of his building - his official visit to the leafy campus at Cornell just weeks behind him - when he was asked for his identification by police. Not having it on him, he was accompanied to his apartment so he cold produce it to their satisfaction.
"I understand they have a job to do and they're trying to calm things down, but I'm not sure why it took four officers to escort me to my house to get my ID," Wilkins said. "It was embarrassing to be seen that way. It's been non-stop lately. It's happened three or four times since. Not every young black male fits the description of a young black male, you know?"
In reality Wilkins fits almost no easy categories. His high-school coach's scouting report goes something like this: "He has standards, he has morals, he has empathy, he's honest. He's intelligent.
"He stands out," Maydo said. "I remember when he was in Grade 9 we got tickets to a Raptors game, but he wouldn't go because it conflicted with church. We got tickets again and he turned them down because he was tutoring a kid in Grade 4. I don't care what neighbourhood you're from, you don't meet kids like that very often."
For all those reasons and his rim-rattling athleticism - standing more than 20 feet from the basket, he's only two dribbles and a blink of an eye from an authoritative dunk - the people at Cornell are as happy to have Wilkins on their campus in the fall as he is to be there.
"Almost all of the guys in the program come from very modest backgrounds and receive some form of financial aid," said Steve Donahue, who is entering his 18th season coaching Ivy League and eighth at Cornell. "We don't have a lot of what I call three-car garage guys. But Andre's a little different because he comes from an extremely rough background and has made it on his own. I want him at this university because he deserves it, but I want him here because the university needs guys like him here, too."

A skilled ball-handler for his size, Rourke struggled finishing his shots during his two years at Cornell and was pulled by Steve Donahue from the starting line-up for three games during his senior year for motivational purposes. Praised as having a "good personality," many close to the program felt that Rourke underachieved in his two years for the Big Red.
Rourke is currently playing professionally in Luxembourg.

Louis Dale (#12 pictured) will find himself in the familiar role of starting point guard in 2007-2008. But this year, he will be surrounded by a whole bunch of new faces...
When you sit back and think about it-- the 2007-2008 version of Cornell Big Red basketball is a combination of three distinct groups of players. First you have a pair of guys that played for the 2005-2006 team, neither of which competed the following year due to medical red-shirts. Both Jason Hartford (6'9" Sr.) and Adam Gore (6'0" So.) were among the team's top four scorers during 2005-2006, Gore (12.9 ppg) leading the team in points and in the process, earning the Ivy League Rookie of the Year and 2nd Team All Ivy League honors. Meanwhile, Hartford (7.7 ppg) was tabbed by Basketball-U.com as a member of the All-Ivy Reserve Team. Gore and Hartford were also the team's top returning scorers for the 2006-2007 season before their "preseason" injuries.
While Hartford and Gore sat on the bench during 2006-2007 recovering, Ryan Wittman (6'6" So.) and Louis Dale (5'11" So.) took over as the team's top two scorers as just freshmen. Wittman (15.6 ppg) finished the year as the Ivy League's Rookie of the Year and 2nd Team Team All Ivy League while Dale (13.3 ppg) finished as an All Ivy League Honorable Mention selection. During the upcoming year, Gore, Hartford, Dale and Wittman will finally have the opportunity to play together on the same floor.
But the story is even more further complicated by a third distinct group added to this mix of players- the newcomers. This third group includes both true freshmen and transfers. The freshmen include Adam Wire (6'6") and Aaron Richardson-Osgood (6'9"). While the rookies are not expected to contribute right away, the transfers are intended to join the playing rotation of regulars. The transfers include Collin Robinson (6'0" So.) via USC, Jeff Foote (7'0" So.) via St. Bonaventure and Andre Wilkins (6'5" So.) via Blinn Junior College.
Heading into the 2007-2008 season, Head Coach Steve Donahue knows he has more talent that he has ever had in Ithaca. He just has to find a way to keep his players healthy and get them to play together as a cohesive unit.

Among Cornell's returning players for the upcoming 2007-2008 season, five missed one or more games during last season due to injury or sickness. Moreover, each of the five is expected and needed to play pivotal roles in Cornell's run for the Ivy crown this year.
The first to go down was Jason Hartford, the 6’9”

It would not surpise us if he ended up at Penn. Aldevinge played on the Under-20 Swedish National Team with Penn's Andreas Schreiber. Moreover, Hartford's head coach, Dan Leibovitz is a 1996 graduate of Penn.
Tuesday, June 12, 2007
As a freshman last season, Dale tallied 13.4 points per game (12th in the Ivy League) while hitting 44% from the floor (10th in the Ivy League). Extremely consistent, Dale scored at least 11 points in 12 of the 14 Ivy league games during 2006-2007. His scoring total (372 points) ranks second all-time among freshmen at Cornell. But what makes Dale so special on the floor is his leadership and cool and collected demeanor. This is why as a coach, he is the guy you want with ball with only 10 seconds left on the clock. He has that uncanny ability to find the extra gear shift that allows him to blow by his defender off the dribble and find the gaps down the lane. If he does not score the lay-up, he will usually draw some contact and get the foul call (he is a 79% free throw shooter-- so forget Hack-A-Shaq strategies). Frustrated defenses also can't afford to play off him either as he is a deadly 45% shooter from beyond the three-point arc (6th in the Ivy League). Beyond scoring the ball, Dale also creates scoring situations for teammates as he dished 3.7 assists per game last year (3rd best in the Ivy League).
As a high schooler, Dale won the Alabama high school state tripple jump championship and and placed second in the long jump. His leaping ability and quickness in the defensive backcourt enabled him to pull down an incredible 5.3 rebounds per game last year (9th in the Ivy League). Not surprisingly, Dale's all-around game earned him All Ivy League honors at the conclusion of the 2006-2007 season.
While Collin Robinson (6'0" Soph) and Adam Gore (6'0" Soph) are more than capable of running the point guard position, both are more suited playing off the basketball as shooting guards. This leaves Dale as Cornell's lone true point guard on the roster-- and the Big Red's success or lack thereof, will largely depend upon how far Dale carries the team.
In recent days, both Columbia and Dartmouth have officially announced their 2007-2008 incoming recruits. Cornell has yet to release its group of newcomers.
Columbia announced the following two recruits:
- Zack Crimmins 7-0/220
