First Offers

Posted Tuesday, August 27th, 2019

While scholarship offers are far from the concrete and certain commodities that social media often implies, the moment when a prospect lands his first offer is nonetheless one of the most memorable in the recruiting process. Ideally, that first offer provides both positive reinforcement for a recent job well done but also future motivation to work even harder both on the court and in the classroom. We’ve seen a number of local New England products land their first offers recently,… READ MORE >

#E75 Frosh/Soph Flashback to ‘09

Posted Sunday, August 25th, 2019

The second annual New England Elite 75 Showcase – Frosh/Soph Edition lived up to the expectations created by the inaugural 2008 event.   The hype going into the event surrounded the debut of two highly touted freshmen, Kuran Iverson and Goodluck Okonoboh.  Both players had well established reputations coming out of the middle school ranks.  Iverson had already attended UConn’s Elite Camp a month earlier and Okonoboh was known as much for his physical upside as he was for being… READ MORE >

Posted Friday, August 23rd, 2019

Updated 2021 New England rankings reflect significant movement among the top prospects in the class of 2021. Where things haven’t moved at all though is in the number one spot, a distinction that Terrence Clarke has now held since 2021 rankings first debuted.

Max Good Inducted into Maine HOF

Posted Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

Most players competing in the prep ranks today might not know the name Max Good, but they nonetheless owe him a debt of gratitude.  While Jere Quinn and Whit Lesure are rightfully often credited with being the godfathers of prep school basketball, so too was Good.  Before Brewster Academy or Bridgton Academy were perennial prep powerhouses, Maine Central Institute held that distinction.  Good led the MCI program from 1989-99 and won five New England championships in that ten years span,… READ MORE >

Gorham has tremendous raw talent. He’s an elastic athlete with extremely long arms (7-foot wingspan), huge hands, good touch, and a frame that he is just starting to grow into. In short,… READ MORE >

It was September of 2008, the New England Recruiting Report was little more than two years old but already the Elite 75 Showcase had become the region's premier individual event. Andre Drummond and Alex Murphy were the two most high profile underclassmen in New England, and both had recently starred at the 3rd annual Elite 75 as two of the only underclassmen to earn invitations. Now though there was an unprecedented demand from other young players looking for a similar… READ MORE >
