Montrael Scott (James Madison HS) Dallas, TX, 6-3, G, told that he selected Prarie View A&M over pursuit from Penn and Texas Pan American.

Class of 2012 News

Parker Uu (Jesuit HS) Carmichael, CA, 6-4, G, told he is considering Columbia, Penn, Princeton, and Yale among his college choices (but holds no offers). "The Ivy League is a very underrated basketball conference. The conference consists of some of the top academic universities in the country, and the basketball is just as tough. Princeton did a great job in this year's tournament and was really fun to watch. Their system has proven to be effective against anyone in the nation. I didn't get to watch many other Ivy League games out here, but I know that it is a solid basketball conference."

David Andoh (St. Mary's HS) Berkley, CA, 6-6, F also told he is evaluating Ivy League options in Columbia and Penn. He holds offers to Colorado and Santa Clara. ""No league or school can compare to the Ivy League academically, well maybe my brother's Bucknell, but that's a different story. In addition to the Ivy League becoming more and more competitive, I would be set for life once my playing days are over after acquiring a degree from such a prestigious league."

A good 6-3 player is fine, but what we need is a true big man a la Jeff Foote. Wittman and Dale were outstanding, but that team wasn't complete without a big man to hit the boards, bang bodies, and block shots. If we want to see another championship in the near future, we need a competent 6-10 or 6-11 player up front.
