This Week’s Recruiting in Review
The college season is underway and practice has begun in a variety of prep school conferences and that means the recruiting news is starting to slow down just a bit, but there have still been plenty of headlines over the last ten days. Here's a look back:
- New Hampton post-graduate forward David Dileo took an official visit to Central Michigan this weekend. The skilled forward already holds several division I scholarship offers but is expected to only see his recruitment grow in the coming weeks;
- Another first year Husky, junior point guard Kristers Zoriks, is beginning to attract high-major attention with both Wisconsin and Nebraska coming in to the New Hampton gym within the last week to check on the six-foot-three point guard;
- There was plenty of news out of Northfield Mount Hermon this week where unsigned senior Nick Seretta took an unofficial visit to Siena to check-out their green and white scrimmage. The Middlesex Magic swingman picked up an offer from fellow MAAC school Manhattan earlier this summer. NMH post-grad David Reynolds visited Amherst this week as well;
- NMH also hosted Villanova head coach Jay Wright who made the trip to check-out junior point guard Kellan Grady while also seeing Andrew Platek, Tomas Murphy, Nate Lasewski and Maxwell Lorca-Lloyd;
- Laszewski scored his latest high-major offer with Providence College becoming the latest school to come calling. Laszewski, who was recently named the Pre-season Underclassman of the Year in the CoxHub AAA preview, now holds multiple offers at that level but is still only just scratching the surface of his potential;
- Boston University hosted several recruits for their midnight madness event including NMH sophomore Calvin Whipple and Cambridge guard Jakigh Dottin;
- Vermont Academy's junior tandem of Corey Romich and Bailey Patella both took unofficial visits to Vermont this weekend. Patella was recently on Binghamton's campus. In other VA news, Bruce Brown postponed his official visit to Purdue but reportedly intends to make the trip next weekend.
- Finally, Brewster Academy post-graduate point guard Ryan Beddeo made a verbal commitment to Army. The Californnia native is a true point guard, full of intangibles and was a top target for Army head coach Zach Spiker this fall. Beddeo becomes the 6th Bobcat to commit to a division I school in the class of 2016.
