RE: 2023 EMU MBB Recruiting Thread
I worked with a combo 6'6" SG-SF last summer. Played against Next year NC and Duke ( rated 3rd best in US) signees, and out-shot both.


He decided to play at post-graduate HS in PA this season. He's a deadly shooter. In first game he scored 25-points on 7 made three's, 5 Rb's, , 1-steal, and one block shot. EMU interested in him. I will recommend EMU, but expect him to get big-time offers.

With former top recruits like Noah and Emoni, we are getting a big head at EMU. 03-lmfao

Has D-I hoops now turned to transfers as their Plan A targets and high school/JUCO as Plan B? (even as we move away from the pandemic stuff with free years and players utilizing it to do grad work elsewhere).

Steve I honestly think that would be the most cogent strategy for EMU. Why sign an extremely raw Moe Njie and develop him, when you might get a Noah or Golson with their transfer wings clipped?

Let's be clear here, JT4 and Ray Lee both would have been one and done at EMU with the current transfer rules.

I've wanted to text about recruiting for some time, but haven't. You've given me an opening.

Your point about colleges now preferring transfers being the main focus is tight-on.

As college coaches love players that have proven their potential or worth. Some coaches really don't trust even if they're good that HS players can help immediately .

From my observations, big time college coaches want to see HS players put the ball in the hoop. More discerning coaches mainly from smaller programs, will sign players that they consider to be diamonds in the rough. Players that are athletic but make less of their shots, but that coaches can project making more of their shots with proper coaching that that the players have not received in HS.

On a separate note, since I've worked with HS bb players, I can say with confidence there are players out who are terrific players but remain under the radar because they play for smaller HS's whose competition is less sub-par. Coaches are put off by that. Not me.

For if I see a player who can get separation on his jump shot or drive that's good enough for me.

As an example, I went to a HS all-star game and before the game, I initiated a conversation with a 6 foot, skinny kid suiting directly in front of me who was to play in the game. He told ne he went a small HS in th farm country and had no college offers. Said he averaged 16 ppg and shot 42 percent on three's.

As he took the court, I kept my eye on him. In pre-game warm-ups he took 15 or so jump shots and missed but two of them. They both went in and out. In the game, he shot 5-5 from the field, including shooting 3-3 on three's. His ball handling was good as was his defense. He was voted MVP for his team. No 4-year college coaches were present at the game.

I spoke to him afterwards and asked him to send me some video. On one he had 6 steals. He's going to play for a junior college this year. I intend to follow his career.

Early signing November 9-November 16. I don't expect us to sign anyone but the rest of the MAC will be interesting.

Here's an update on HS player mentioned above. He followed-up his 25 points in first game, including 7 three's, with a 34-point performance, 29-points coming in the the first-half that included 8-made three's.That's 29 points in just 16-minutes of play. In the two games, he shot 15-30 on three's. That's off the chats.

He followed that up with a 30-point game, including 7-three's. That's 22 made three's in just 3 games.

Now getting lots of interest from college coaches. Will keep you posted.

He just played this past weekend in 12- team national HS tournament held in Connecticut that had some of the best HS teams in the nation. In two games averaged close to 20 ppg. Was named the final day among top five players in the tournament.

RE: 2023 EMU MBB Recruiting Thread
Early signing period is now over. As expected EMU did not sign anyone in the early signing period. We were joined by Bowling Green, NIU and Buffalo who also didn't sign anyone. As mentioned the 2023 class in Michigan is solid class. However many instate players have signed to out of state schools, added an extra year in out of state prep schools and in state d2 schools are getting very nice talent this year. So here is how the other MAC schools did in the early signing period:

WMU-Michael Sulaka 6'9 Macomb MI Brandon Muntu 6'4 JUCO Triton IL
Kent St-Donovan Hunter 6'8 Westerville OH Lance Hayes 6'4 Akron OH
Toledo-Sam Lewis 6'4 Oak Park IL, Xavier Thomas 6'5 Birmingham MI Sonny Wilson 6'1 Pontiac MI
CMU-Bryce Easton 5'10 Detroit MI
Ball St-Mason Jones 6'7 Valparasio IN
Ohio U-Ben Nicol 6'7 Charleston W VA
Akron-Darrion Baker 6'8 Country Club IL Marvin Muslime-Kamali 6'6 Boston MA
Miami OH-Mekhi Cooper 6'0 Bolingbrook IL Elan Elmer 6'7 Covington KY Evan Ipsano 6'0 Cincinnati OH Jackson Kotecki 6'9 Chicago IL Reece Potter 7'0 Lexington KY

It will be interesting to see if Mo asks to comeback if he averages 2-3 ppg and under 10 mpg.
