Future Big Red Players Update

Below, we provide brief updates on Cornell's incoming recruiting class for the fall of 2011. Above, Dave Lamore at "signing day" during November.

Lamore, a 6'10" center from Dexter, Michigan, scored 14 points in his season opener, a 47-40 defeat to Hartland last night. See the game recap on Heritage.com and the video highlights. See also Heritage's video interview with LaMore.

Also in action last night, Galal Cancer, a 6'2" point guard for Christian Brothers Academy in Albany, scored 18 points in CBA's (2-0) 62-52 win over Bishop Maginn. Brief recap by Troy Record.

The other members of Cornell's incoming recruiting class for the fall of 2011 includes: Shonn Miller (6'6" F, St. Ignatius HS, Cleveland, OH), Deion Giddens (6'9" C, Willow Canyon HS, Carefreem AZ), Devin Cherry (6'3" G, Meridian, MS), and medical red-shirt Dominic Scelfo (6'2" G, Jesuit HS, New Orleans, LA).

His enrollment commitment.

hey, i'm a Taurus, so I like Cancer said...

I am so pumped for Galal Cancer to join the team next year. Anyone else get the feeling he's going to be legit from the start?

Cancer and Peck all day every day baby, gonna play a 2 man game all through a 14-0 season. I'm feeling it.

Toss in a little Wrobo cop, some good new recruits, and a more experienced front line...damn.

Galal 'Lou Dale' Cancer is going to be the best out of these 5

Some coaches around the league would say Devin Cherry.

But the guy with most scholarship offers was Shonn Miller. That kid had about two dozen offers and Notre Dame was very, very involved. They spoke with him the week he committed to Cornell.

Looks like this kid will fill the void left by Coury (in more ways than one)

seriously, no offense, but this kid does not look very good. I hope he proves me wrong, because we are going to need a big man to step up and contribute immediately next year since Coury + Osgood graduate.

why the hate? first of all you can't tell much from those clips about how good he is. and second, he seemed to show some good footwork and body control, and he flushed one on the fast break.

Last two Anonymous posters: maybe try a little positivity, keep your negative thoughts to yourselves, at least until the kid gets on campus...

1:37PM-
Assume you are talking about Shonn Miller...

No matter how good he is, what about this 6'5"/6'6" guy makes you think he is going to step in for 6'9" Mark Coury (or 6'9" Aro Osgood)?

I'm not saying he isn't going to be good, but he doesn't play the same position.

Agreed on why the hate... Those clips show a rather athletic 6-10 kid. If you want a big who can contribute immediately at a high level, you might have better luck following BCS schools. I imagine this site is a strong tool for recruiting, so try not to be judgmental jacka**es.

LaMore had a bunch of D-I scholarship offers. He is tall, strong, and skilled. He's about as talented of a big man to come into the Ivy League as we've seen over the years.
