Recruiting News

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

A few more of Cornell's JuCo targets have committed to Division I schools. Brylle Kamen (Western Nebraska Community College/Jacksonville State University) Paris, France, 6-7 220, committed to San Jose State of the WAC after receiving significant recruiting attention from Cornell. The Big Red was reportedly Kamen's top choice until Cornell appeared to move in a different direction.

Dennis Tolliver (South Mountain Community College/Hawaii Pacific U.)/ Phoenix, AZ 6-9 committed to defending NAIA national champion Oklahoma Baptist after getting some courtship from the Big Red.

Former Marist committed recruit, Naofall “Ming” Folahan (Wibraham & Monson School) Wilbraham, MA, 6-7, has committed to attend Wagner University after several Ivies, including Penn made a late push for his services.

Brett Ervin (Eden Praire HS) Eden Prarie, MN, 6-5 and Peter Crawford (Benidle-St. Margaret's HS) Minneapolis, MN 6-4 both accepted scholarships to Division II Minnesota-Dulth. Both players received considerable recruiting attention from Ivy schools such as Dartmouth and Yale.

Serious question...has Cornell EVER lost a recruit simply because they liked another school better or in EVERY case is it due to the fact they either failed to meet the academic grade, or perhaps Cornell chose to go a different route after early interest..or any other of the many excuses given why a potential Cornell recruit choose another school?

Sure, Cornell lost plenty of kids to other schools. For example, this year, Harvard beat out Cornell for Laurent Rivard, while Cornell beat out Harvard for Chris Wroblewski and Aaron Osgood (among others).
