2017 Recruiting needs and potential recruits

Post by Marshmont_63 » Tue Jun 02, 2015 8:33 pm

I started this thread since Wabissa Bede has just been offered by UMass today, and he is currently in the class of 2017 for HS. Believe it or not we are already looking at 2017 recruits. Saw this video of Bede's 47-point game earlier this year. This kid looks legit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LS2aB7nw3p8

We've made another 2017 offer and it's to a MA kid. If he's 6'7 now and just a junior, he may grow another inch or two.

Bump.
Niles, who has UMass offered, how would they fit in, who else may be on the radar? I know the scholarship situation is hazy, but you never stop recruiting.
Thanks

^ I'll reply to part of this. If we fill the last scholarship (Helo, Bruce), everyone stays eligible and nobody transfers, we have ZERO scholarships available for 2017. However, we will have 5 available for 2018 as we lose: Berger, Coleman, Clarke, Anderson and Lewis.

The chances of this playing out this way are also ZERO. Someone earlier mentioned that if we get Brown it's possible that one or two players transfer. I agree. This is a case where the players at the bottom of the roster (11-13) are going to find it very hard to get PT except in blowouts.

There is almost always roster turnover year to year and UMass is definitely bracing for that in 2017. We just offered a scholarship to Naji Marshall, a 3-star shooting guard from Maryland (Class of 2017).

^ I have pretty much zero interest in paying attention to 2017 recruits until they either commit to UMass, or the upcoming basketball season is over. I'll follow it half-heartedly until then.

I'm making a couple of completely unsubstantiated assumptions here:
1. He is class of 2017
2. He is a potential recruit

Does anyone know who he is?

I'll be the first to admit that I can't always figure out what I see on twitter. Anyone care to interpret. If I had to guess, it looks like Bede is showing serious interest.

^ I couldn't really tell either, but it certainly looks like it's a possibility.

You can catch one of our top targets for 2017 at the Hoophall in the 7:45pm game, Hasahn French 6'7" who plays for Commonwealth Academy. They will be playing PSA from Connecticut. Games are free via Masslive if you can't get there in person.
