D3 Commitment Catch-Up

With both division III college basketball and prep school basketball are right at the peak of their respective post-seasons right now, it’s a good time to examine a couple of prep school commitments that could likely impact future D3 NCAA tournaments.  

Only a couple of months after landing commitments from Phillips Exeter guard Harry Rafferty and Beaver Country Day swingman Joe Connelly, following the acceptance of their ED1 applications, Wesleyan has added two more local prep products following recent ED2 notifications.  

Cardinals’ head coach Joe Reilly scooped up another sharp-shooting southpaw guard from Phillips Exeter in Davis Reid, a six-foot-two post-graduate who came to New England from the Kansas City area.  Reid is a highly skilled player with a high basketball I.Q.  Together, the trio of Rafferty, Connelly, and Reid will give Wesleyan three high level three-point shooters to space the floor on the perimeter.  

Davis joins Rafferty, Jordan Hill (Wisconsin), Chris Braley (Stony Brook), and Duncan Robinson (Williams) to become the fifth Exeter product to finalize his recruitment so far this season.  

The Cardinals have also picked up a commitment from Governor’s Academy big man Joseph Kuo, who will provide a long and physical presence inside the lane.  Kuo is a scholarship caliber prospect, who turned heads after earning a late entry into last summer’s New England Elite 75 Showcase, and has continued to emerge as a prospect on the rise since.  

Wesleyan wasn’t the only division III school to score an important commitment recently.  Brandeis added Suffield Academy post-graduate Jack Fay, another highly skilled southpaw guard and tremendous student.  

Fay ran with the Academic Basketball Club on the AAU circuit and committed to Brandeis over a host of other high academic division III programs, while also earning some interest from the Ivy League.  

Fay joins Colin Pascoe (Connecticut College), Mack Montague (Rochester), and Kendall Jackson (Columbia) to become the fourth member of the Tiger’s 2013 class to make a commitment.
