Re: Vermont HS BBall prospect discussion

Scotnicki was a JR this year, so it looks like he's reclassifying to repeat that year. I saw CVU play a little this year: they had a handful of good players, but I don't really remember him. Catpower's right about the NESCAC hook-ups: VA had two kids who were pretty far from the spotlight, but are both headed to Tufts and Colby, I think. Won't be the last, I'm sure.

Interesting news, former UVM guard, 1991 AE POY, and 4-time VT HS state champion coach at Burlington HS Matt Johnson took a new gig, at Jefferson County HS in Maryville, Tennessee.

Deng Adiang, a JR from MMU, is headed to Vermont Academy and will reclassify as a 2019. His brother Tinga played a year or two there, and is now at St. Lawrence. Abrami re-posted something from VA's Instagram.

Re: Vermont HS BBall prospect discussion

What's the scoop on Tennessee State? Are they a decent program?

I don't see any verification of this, where did you find this information? You'd think Kendrick would have tweeted about it by now, like most kids his age announcing college decisions, but there's nothing.

Im friends with one of his mutual friends on social media and he announced his congratulations to him. He should be announcing it soon.

I think it's a decent program. OVC. I believe former Bing talent Jordan Reed transferred there.

SCOOP!

Good for Kendrick. Tennessee State, while not a high-profile program, does seem to be moving in the right direction under Dana Ford. According to VC, it does look like they've also signed a couple of JUCO SFs, so he may not be an immediate impact guy. But he's got his shot, which is all you need.

Re: Vermont HS BBall prospect discussion

Not that I don't want to believe it's true what you've said, but would be nice to see some official confirmation from the media or Burlington Free Press. Or even from Kendrick publicly on social media or something. It's just, well...the last time there was news of a commitment in the Gray/Taylor-Webster family, it didn't turn out so good (or to be true).

Re: Vermont HS BBall prospect discussion

I wonder if he was accepted by the basketball program but not the school and that's why there haven't been any official announcements?

Re: Vermont HS BBall prospect discussion

If it's the same as East Tennessee State, then yes. They were actually very good last year. Won the Southern conference, 27-8 on the year.

If that's the case then good for Kendrick. He will be playing for a successful program and we may see him in the NCAA Tournament one day.
