Recruiting News

Below, some recruiting news from around the Ivy League...

Minnesota Preps reports that Shelby Moats, a 6'8" forward from Waconia, Minnesota now has offers from William & Mary, Utah, Wisconsin-Green Bay, Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and South Dakota State. He is also receiving regular visits from Saint Louis. Despite the fact that a school like Utah is involved, Moats is still very interested in the Ivy League. "Academics are very important to Shelby and his family," said his AAU coach Jeremy Miller. "At the end of this (recruiting) process Shelby will end up at the school that is based on the best mix of basketball and academics." He is a member of the class of 2011.

GopherIllustrated reports that Jonah Travis, a 6'5" guard from DeLaSalle High School in Minneapolis has offers from Wofford, Northern Illinois and Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Other schools are also considering making offers, including a few Ivies. "It's hard to tell who is the most interested right now," Travis explained. "I just had a good conversation with Northwestern (coach Mitch Henderson), I've talked to Princeton some, Colorado, Colorado State, Butler, UC-Davis who saw me play in L.A., all the Iowa schools have called (Iowa, Iowa State, Northern Iowa, and Drake), and NDSU. Lafayette and Montana have shown good interest as well. Columbia will be in Tuesday."

Three Northfield Mount Hermon School players, Tommy Carpenter (class of 2012), Evan Cummins (class of 2012) and Brown commitment, Joe Sharkey (class of 2011) are on an unofficial visit to Brown on Saturday. NMH is located in Northfield, Massachusetts.
