Head Coach: Bill Courtney
Incoming Players: Galal Cancer 6’2” (Christian Brothers Academy), Dave La Mere 6’9” (Dexter HS, MI), Devin Cherry 6’3” (Meriden, MS)
Recruiting Grade: B
Analysis: Galal Cancer will prove to be a major score for Cornell, as he was a recruiting steal for the Big Red. Cancer who played at Christian Brothers Academy and for the Nike sponsored AAU club, Albany City Rocks, will be a prolific scorer in the Ivy League. He is also great in transition, which will be perfect for Coach Courtney’s style of play. LaMere will add a great post presence and will likely be a starter at some point during his career. Devin Cherry was an intriguing get for Courtney as he is from Mississippi, which is not heavily recruited by his league foes. Cherry will be an athletic hybrid perimeter player who will need to add muscle to his 170 lb. frame in order to be a major presence in the Ivy League.
