Time to get this started as news is starting to trickle in for 2019. If a mod would be so kind as to sticky this that would be appreciated.


Pat Lawless
Vermont will be in to '19 Joe Girard from Glens Falls (NY) tonight, per a source.

He will not be attending Albany, Vermont, or Siena.

Not a chance. And, if he did choose Albany or Siena it would be A) the local thing; B) Joe Cremo (for Albany) and the other locals we've had, including Lucious Jordan; and C) Will Brown. You guys laugh all you want...but local players love his style.

This kid is Jimmer Fredette and Kevin Huerter level. He's a sophomore who holds offers from Penn State and GW already. He's taken one (maybe two) visits to Penn State.

I'd expect the offers to roll in after the summer AAU circuit.

‏@WrightWaySkills

Charles Coleman, Tayler Mattos, Jordan Mason & Noah Kamba will be on hand this Saturday watching #Stony Brook vs #Vermont battle. @NERRHoops

Coleman, Mason, and Kamba are all 2019 recruits who play for the Dexter School. No idea if they'll be there to see one school or the other or both.

Edit: Coleman has a $BU offer.

So what you're saying is, the Tweet should've read...

Vermont will be in to visit closest Red Lobster to campus; catch fun high school game in the process.

LOL. Exactly.

Or, a visit to New Way Lunch. Best Dirty Dogs I've had...

Gotta ask for 3 on 1, 5 on 2, etc. And no, those aren't fast breaks...that's how you order your dogs. And never, ever call it a Dirty dog.

Saw on the Twitter that Girard made, or is making, an unofficial visit to Vermont. I agree with Dane that he probably won't be attending an AE school as he's barely scratched the surface, but that would be pretty cool if he did.

I believe I saw him after the game was over with his dad and Ham Tibbs heading into the locker room area.

Even though these kids are only 2019 and no idea what level of recruitment will be, it takes a good amount of commitment to trek up to Burlington from Boston. It's not like when all these kids go visit NU and BU.

So yeah, a 2019 unofficial generally insignificant but for a Boston kid to head up to Burlington to see a game is somewhat noteworthy/meaningful.

Verbal Commits also list: Jake Cook, Latham, NY as a target for 2019.
6'8" 165 PF Medium Interest. Offered this year. 15.9 and 9.5 bds this year.
Verbal says we will have 9 available for 2019.

It's hard to say offer, because you can't offer sophomores, unless there's a new rule I don't know about.

UMBC has their eyes on (I guess that's acceptable?) Josh Wallace, a PG from Annapolis.

I know nothing about him but that MIAA B league that St. Mary's plays in isn't that good. I might even call it terrible. Certainly nowhere as good as the A league Rodney played in.

St. Mary's plays in a division with Indian Creek, who didn't even have a high school fifteen years ago. So while that doesn't mean that Wallace isn't a good player, after Nick Groce I'm of the opinion it's totally worthless to recruit a MIAA B player to division I.

Verbal Commits‏ @verbalCommits 6h6 hours ago

2019 Dexter Southfield (MA) G Jordan Mason has received an offer from Hartford. @theRealJ_Boogie http://verbalcommits.com/players/jordan-mason-ma
can't find any tape on him.

Hartford also extended offers to Tyler Mattos, and Nate Hobbs. Hobbs looks decent with above the rim play for a 6'2" PG. Mattos is just a big guy from small school NH. Hope he has great AAU tape because Kearsage Regional are not playing any powerhouses for a Div.3-4 basketball squad
