Two of the better Ivy League recruiting prospects still on the board are Steve Moundou-Missi (Montverde Academy) Montverde, FL 6-5 and Joshua Richardson (Santa Fe HS) Edmond, OK, 6-5, G. If you "buy into" rankings, both are listed among the top 15o prospects in the nation on Rivals.com. Moundo-Missi, a widebodied 225 lb. forward has offers to Harvard, Princeton and Brown and is also considering an offer from Fran McCafferey's rebuillding Iowa program. Richardson holds offers to Creighton, Arizona State, Harvard, Wichita State, Missouri State, Oral Roberts, Mercer and SMU.

Collin Woods (Horizon HS) Scottsdale, AZ, 6-1, G, had offers to Colorado, Colorado State, Arizona State, UTEP, Portland, San Diego, Fresno State, Montana State, Northern Colorado, Weber State, Cornell and Columbia at various points during the summer. However, as Woods delayed his college decision and waited out the summer and early fall, several of these schools moved in other directions, including Cornell. Ultimately, with a dwindled selection of offering schools, Woods pulled the trigger and committed this week to UC-Irvine.

Kevin Bailey (Clovis East HS) Clovis, CA, 6-5, G, has offers from Harvard, Penn, Northwestern, Portland, and Santa Barbara according to Rivals.com. However, the wing expects to wait until the spring to sign as he hopes to land some high major scholarship offers. Schools such as UCLA, Stanford, and Seton Hall are evaluating him.

Varun Ram (Winchendon School) Winchendon, MA, 6-0, G, has interest from Dartmouth, Brown, University of Chicago, Trinity, and Rochester. He is a postgraduate from Washington, D.C.

Matt Porter (Notre Dame Prep) Fitchburg, MA, 6-3, G is hearing from Colgate, Lafayette, Albany, and Canisius. He is also planning a visit to Columbia. He is originally from Saint Peter's High School in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Connor Boehm (New Trier HS), Winneteka, IL, 6-6, F, already has an offer from Albany and interest from Yale, Princeton, Holy Cross, and Cornell. He is a member of the class of 2012. His older brother, Pete, played at Harvard before leaving the team a year ago.

Ryan Krueger (Glenbard North) Glenbard, IL, 6-7, F, is hearing from Yale, Cornell, Central Michigan and Miami (OH).

Absolutely, but those guys get more ink. We mentioned the guys above to illustrate that there are a few other talented players looking at Ivies.
