Recruiting, 2014

Unread post by AppGrad78 » Thu Sep 27, 2012 11:39 am

The updated recruiting list is available on the new recruiting page with links to most of our individual players. To find it, go to the Sports tab, scroll the sport you're looking for and then to the appropriate recruiting year. Firemoose and I are managing the site, so check the site often for updates.

Thanks for the update! Hopefully they will see a nice crowd, I plan on coming up. Do we know if these kids are top targets or what their interest level is in us?

The new 2014 Basketball recruiting page is now up and linked from the main menu. The master list is also there along with the five offers we have out now. I will be building pages for those offered kids soon. You can find the page under Sports-Basketball-Recruiting. We will post notices of updates and changes in this thread. Hope you enjoy all the information being in one place. :D

On to Baseball ;)

Hey guys and gals, I wanted to drop a quick note and say that we've offered several players today. I'm just finding out the info as I left at 3am to drive to between Pittsburgh and Erie, PA to pick up a car as part of my underemployed job. Needless to say driving over 1050 miles has got me a little tired and I just got a chance to look on Twitter. I'll try and post the offers as I know them here and on the main page and then I'll build the pages after I get a little rest. I'm also putting this message in the 2014 Basketball thread as we offered another 2014 player and a 2015 player today. Here's what I know for now.

SG/SF Ryan Johnson (6' 5" 170) of Thomasville Prepartory in Greensboro, NC

Per Twitter and internet reports App has offered PF Zane Waterman (6' 8 210) of Fayetteville Christian School in Fayetteville, NC. I will add him to the 2014 Main page. There is another Zane Waterman that's listed in Kernersville, NC that's around the same size but everything I've seen so far, including tweets from his AAU coach indicate the player I have listed is the one. I'll update it if something changes.

firemoose, any thoughts on how the move to the Belt has impacted the caliber of recruit we're going after?

I think it was in the 2015 thread but I said it looks like basketball is taking a page from football and going for it. Time will tell what we get as will how we finish this next season but the names I'm seeing thrown about that we are showing interest in are all 3 star and higher players. Just like football it's shooting for the stars but we are at least in the discussions with these players and you never know when one or two will fall to us.

Per Twitter and internet reports App has offered SG/PG Gabe DeVoe (6′ 3″ 195) of Shelby High School in Shelby, NC. He is showing offers from WCU, Marshall, UNCW, UNCG, Jacksonville, Radford, GWU, Mercer, Richmond, UNCC, High Point, and Elon.

Also reports are App has offered PG Hunter Ware (6' 1 160) of North Cobb Christian School in Kennesaw, GA. Info is limited right now so I've just added him to the 2014 Main page for now. He is showing offers from GWU, Ga Sou, Jacksonville, MTSU, Radford, and Tennessee Tech.

Finally reports are App has offered PG Nate Mason (5' 11" 160). Now here's the problem. Rivals is showing him from Jacksonville FL (Arlington Country Day). ESPN and Future150 are showing him from Decatur GA (Columbia High School) and 247 is showing him from Decatur GA (Shiloh High School). Rivals shows him at no stars. ESPN at three. Future150 at two stars. And the pictures are all of the same kid. Now either there are three of him, triplets, or he really gets around. Combined Nate Mason is showing offers from Clemson, George Mason, Ga St, Harvard, LaSalle, Lehigh, Towson, UAB, Virginia and William & Mary. I am putting him on the Main page for now until the picture becomes clearer.

I just love this stuff. :roll:

Hey Yosef, do you think you could put a smilie of one banging his head against a brick wall in our selection. Not sure why but that seems to appeal to me right now.
