JN tweeted something cryptic today to the effect that weekends like these are how programs are made - any idea what he's happy about?

Doesn't sound like the last 2 posts are things that would've  made JN  happy as JohnG92 indicated he was this weekend.

Keep an eye on scoring point guard Matt Brand, Class of 20, from Archbishop Stepinac HS in White Plains. Manhattan has offered him and we are involved, as are Cal-Berkeley, GW and St. Bonaventure.

Well, the NCAA moved up when Fall practice can start a few years ago, but that's not until later in September.  Maybe they had some team-building type thing, like they all watched Hoosiers or something. Smiley  Last week he tweeted some pics of him and Martina with his parents.  He seems in good spirits.  Last year's off-season may have been a little rougher for him, personally.

My guess and hope is he got one or two verbal commitments from recruits very high on his list.

Not exactly a powerhouse, but most of the schools recruiting him were low-majors, ivies, etc.

I think the biggest one is that the school picks up the costs involved in an official visit and the parents/family are responsible for an unofficial one.

Additionally, recruits are only allowed 5 official visits.

I'd be comfortable saying its probably a team building activity outside of basketball. Us getting verbal commitments from kids is basically a thing of the past, we're a jucos and euros team now.

This thread is the Rambacker High School Basketball Recruiting Rumor Mill, not a Recruiting Update for Fordham Basketball.

Post after post, littered with names of 15 and 16-year-olds that will never visit the Fordham campus.

There has to be some criteria (official visit, receiving an offer) to keep this topic appropriate.

Please.

I think Jucos, Euros, and Transfers are a very smart way to build a program for Fordham. Why put time in with a Frosh who needs time to develop only to see them leave when they Graduate early or transfer when they don't get playing time early on. Makes no sense. Much smarter to a get a more finished product which will also improve the hit rate on recruits. IMO it is a really good risk adverse way for Fordham to do business.

I think you're correct when you look at what we are up against right now in the A-10, but I would still like to see some Freshmen from high school come here for a full 4 year Fordham experience.  Not all good ones leave before 4 years and if we get a good one for 3 years, that's not bad.

Right now we are involved with many high school/prep players, so posting this is important recruiting news since we have a relatively new staff that has recently become established. Jucos and transfers are always in the mix but this usually comes much closer to signing time.

"petermartin" is the last person who should state what is "appropriate" in this string since he has never posted one player here first who we signed. I will continue to post as I have and there will be significant recruiting news that you see here from me, as there has been since I started this string many years ago.

Yeah what he said.

No disrespect but if a kid never comes on campus (unless he is a foreigner), I find it very unlikely that they are ever wearing the a Rams uni.  Can we please only list kids that actually have a reciprocal interest in us?

I don't have ESP so the answer would be no. I post what I know. Lucky to be able to do that. Please start posting here if you have more info than I do.
