This Week’s Recruiting Updates

The recruiting period ended on Sunday and the offers have flowed in for a variety of local players since. 

As we always caution, offers are not at all concrete, but nonetheless we still want to recognize those players that stood out last week and have seen their recruitment change in the days since. 

St. Paul's School and Mass Rivals wing Jordan Geronimo has seen his recruitment change more than any other rising senior in New England as he pushed his recruitment to the high-major level and added 10 new offers from Providence, Virginia Tech, Texas A&M, Penn State, Utah, VCU, Illinois State, Charlotte, Yale, and Penn. 

In the class of 2021, Suffield Academy and PSA Cardinals big man Mac Etienne saw his stock jump with offers from Syracuse, Pittsburgh, and St. John's.
