News and Notes: Tuesday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Tuesday...

  • Always and important date on the calendar, The Cornell Basketball Prospect Camp for elite high school players considering playing at Cornell is scheduled for June 23-24. Cornell coaches direct the camp while several veteran Big Red players serve as counselors. Cornell's incoming committed recruits may also attend.
  • Profiling the Rising Stars AAU program, the Chicago Sun Times writes, "Many ex-Rising Stars have done and are doing good things at the next level. That list includes Highland Park’s Chris Wroblewski (Cornell), Barrington’s Jason Richards (Davidson), Zion-Benton’s Lenzelle Smith (Ohio State), Mundelein’s Ben Brust (Wisconsin) and Lake Forest’s Danny Hodgkinson (Dennison)."
  • Travis Bledsoe, an NBA D-League hopeful is blogging for Slam Online and writes, "Coach [Bob] Mackinnon [of the Springfield Armor] helped [Dennis] Horner, along with Jerry Smith and Jeff Foote, earn NBA call-ups during the ‘11-12 season as well helping LD Williams and Jameson Curry earn invitations to the NBA D-League Elite Mini Camp that he also hosted at the Moody Bible institute. Three players from the Armor earn 10-day contracts and others made NBA training camps during the ‘11-12 NBA season."

Bummer to hear that Cornell didn't land K. Johnson. It would be really, really nice to land a legit top level recruit a la Shonn Miller.
