Introducing the “Be Seen Tour”

Posted Tuesday, July 14th, 2020

There was no spring recruiting period. The NCAA has already cancelled summer recruiting and fall recruiting may not happen either.  Even as teams are gradually starting to get back on the court in the northeast, it has still never been harder to get exposure as college coaches are still shut down.  Without being able to go on the road, college coaches are relying on two things right now to do their recruiting - video and scouting services.  With that in… READ MORE >

Rising Senior Spotlight – Tommy Lorenzetti

Rising Senior Spotlight – Tommy Lorenzetti

Posted Tuesday, July 14th, 2020

Like many point guards, Tommy Lorenzetti's impact couldn't be measured by statistics last year. His impact on winning though was undeniable as his unselfishness and reliability on both ends of the floor where invaluable for St. Paul's.  His role should change next year though as St. Paul's graduates four seniors and will need Lorenzetti to not just be the floor general like he was this year, but also a consistent playmaker.  That's a role he's been preparing for in recent… READ MORE >

The program lasted for three days and included three-hours of "pre-work" including two documentaries, and a series of articles.  It was a significant commitment for college coaches to undertake and a virtually unprecedented initiative - for a grassroots program to be educating college coaches.  But that's exactly what… READ MORE >

Posted Friday, July 10th, 2020

Tom Vassil's high school career at Whitman-Hanson wrapped up with an MIAA state championship this year as WH took the D2 title.  While Vassil's stats, may have been modest this year, his impact was not, as his size was a constant game changer on both ends of the floor.  While he's made consistent and obvious strides over the years, Vassil is still new to the game and just beginning to scratch the surface of his potential. He's also under-recruited, with… READ MORE >

Rising Senior Spotlight - Cole Bryant

Posted Wednesday, July 8th, 2020

Every coach out there wants to advocate for their kids, but not every coach has the same credibility when they do it. Tony Newsom's is second to none. So when he says he believes Cole Bryant is a division I prospect, we pay attention, and college coaches should too.  He said the same thing about Jonas Harper a couple of years ago. Just one school listened and they won the Patriot League this spring with Harper playing a key role. … READ MORE >

St. Paul's Cody Appleton just finished his second season in the NEPSAC after coming from his home state of South Carolina.  Appleton made a quick impression and has continued to improve at a rapid rate, not just establishing himself as a top-notch shooter but showing his overall skill-set and basketball I.Q. for a much-improved St. Paul's team.  On the recruiting trail, he has wide-ranging interest from a long line of division III schools and has also heard from Loyola Chicago at the… READ MORE >
